Hey where was Sensible Soccer confirmed?

Sensible Soccer was confirmed to be released on the 29th August by CodeMasters at a "Sensible World of Soccer Tournament" staged in London on the 5th June 2007. I added it to the list as it applies to this :)

Just realised that we'll have *at least* one double Arcade whamming :D

Hexic 2 sounds like a winner if it's 400 points.

08-06-2007, 07:49 PM
I might as well go buy some MS points now, because I know as soon as my gf hears that Ecco is coming, she'll be demanding to play it. :)

08-06-2007, 09:33 PM
Space Giraffe and Streets Of Rage, loading up on M$ points now.

Pants Party has it right, they'd better come out with Dodgeball!! I loved that game on NES.

08-07-2007, 03:05 AM
About fucking time we see Streets of Rage 2 on XBLA. Now all I need is that X-Men beat em up by Konami that was released only for arcades.

08-07-2007, 03:14 AM
war world sounds sweet

08-07-2007, 03:37 AM
Well my fiance will be happy to see that Puzzle Fighter comes out soon. Ever since that arcade montage video from E3 she can't stop asking me when it comes out.

08-08-2007, 12:30 AM
Very awesome lineup! I was waiting for some XBLA goodies.

Street of Rage and Puzzle Fighter is a MUST for me!

08-08-2007, 12:46 AM
Streets Of Rage 2 AWSOME i remember playing Streets of Rage when i was a kid many many years ago ,,,, makes me feel old now. :)

08-08-2007, 02:59 AM
I'm going to start shooting people if Dodgeball doesn't get ported soon.

I 100% agree wit u, cant wait for puzzle fighter and Hexic 2 its multiplayer now.

08-08-2007, 04:24 PM
Turns out I was "wrong" about SWOS (Link (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=356012#post356012)).

08-09-2007, 04:02 AM
I would love to see another RPG on XBLA arcade, like Shining Force/Shining Force II, perhaps an Early Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger. I am excited for SoR2 and Ecco.

I already bought Track and Field, and I love it!

08-22-2007, 01:59 PM
Kinda a bump but I thought it was a good place to be in.

Wednesday 29th August Release is: Super Puzzle Fighter 2 HD Remix.

Confirmed by Capcom at 800 Microsoft Points.
