Xbox 360

Xbox Live Arcade game size officially increased to 150MB


Microsoft announced that the official size limit for Xbox Live Arcade games has been increased from 50 MB to 150MB. To make sure Xbox 360 owners who don’t have a hard drive can enjoy the upcoming “large” games a new 512 MB memory unit is coming out on April 3, 2007. The new memory unit will retail for $49.99 and the first batch comes with Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved loaded on it. The 64MB Memory Unit will drop in price to $29.99. If you are planning to spend the money on the 512 MB unit to play Xbox Live Arcade you really should consider to get the 20GB hard drive for an extra $50. The size increase makes sense and certainly means that there are some more “large” games other than Castlevania: Symphony of the Night in the works. Could Rez be next?
