Three New Lumines Live! Downloads Available Next Wednesday on Xbox Live Arcade at Special Promotional Prices

Good things come in threes, and next week’s Arcade Wednesday release is no exception to that rule. Three new packages of Lumines Live! content will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360™ beginning Wednesday, Jan. 24, at 9 a.m. GMT (1 a.m. PST). Two of the add-on packs will be available at special promotional prices, and one of them will be free to Xbox Box Live Gold Members for a limited time!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, “Lumines Live!” combines puzzles, music and video entertainment to create an addictively-fun gameplay experience that looks and sounds as good as it plays. Play several different single player modes, battle friends online over Xbox Live, create your own skins playlist in the all-new Skin Edit Mode, and experience new ways to play via exclusive downloadable content to enhance and extend the gameplay experience.
Here’s what will be available to download for Lumines Live!:
Heavenly Star Skin
Cost: For a limited time only, available free for Xbox Live Gold members from Jan. 24 - Feb 21, 2007.
Performed by a new group called Genki Rockets and produced by Q Entertainment’s own Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the song's catchy and uplifting tune combined with equally striking video has caught the attention of many gamers and was recently nominated Best Song at the 2006 Spike TV Video Game Awards. Gamers can enjoy the music video in stunning HD and 5.1 surround sound as they play their way through the falling blocks.
Cost: For a limited time only, 100 MS Points starting Jan. 24 – Feb 21, 2007. (Price after February 21, 2007: 300 MS Points)
Show off your skills by challenging the CPU. This new game pack also includes a stylish skin and character designs that match the theme of each of the stages. A special bonus skin is waiting for you at the very end of the challenge.
Puzzle/Mission Pack
Cost: For a limited time only, 100 MS Points starting Jan. 24 - Feb 21, 2007. (Price after February 21, 2007: 300 MS Points)
“Lumines Live!” is not just about dropping blocks. In Puzzle Mode, you must try to create a certain shape by using the blocks. In Mission Mode, you will be given a mission to clear all blocks within a specified amount of moves. With an additional 90 puzzles to solve and 40 missions to clear, you won’t want to miss this Pack. (The first 10 puzzles and missions are included in the Standard Edition; by purchasing the Pack, the total number is 100 puzzles and 50 missions)

Wow, only 100 points for the first week? Only thing I'm interested in is new skins, but for that price I'll go ahead and pick up the other packs.

Ya it is kind of cheap, but when you spend that much on the game in the first place, you would hope that it comes all complete; rather than buying even more levels etc ... Either way though, I'll get it, I'm a big fan of the game, even though I can't get that damn 500 000 ! :p

More goodies :) I was prepared to spend an ungodly sum for these "upgrades" so this is a bit of a relief. I wish they would have just released the stuff instead of announcing it though. Now I'm gonna be checking the Marketplace every 5 minutes on the 24th until it comes out.
