Xbox Originals Adds Pirates, Ninjas Next Week (http://kotaku.com/352866/xbox-originals-adds-pirates-ninjas-next-week)


A trio of new oldies will make their way to the Xbox Live Marketplace next week, as Microsoft plans to add Sid Meier's Pirates!, Black and Ninja Gaiden Black to the Xbox Originals line-up. All three will arrive on February 11 for 1200 Microsoft Points—$15 in genuine US dollars. If scurvy, explosions and decapitations are your thing, clear some space on your hard drive for next Monday.

Black is a good game to get but the only thing bad is that they over charge you on them when you can get them cheaper used and not use up so much memory.
Now if only they would read my wish and put KOTOR 1 or 2 on there:(

This is a useless feature they've added to the 360. The games are more expensive than going to the store and they eat up tons of HDD space. This is pretty much a failed idea. I don't have anyone on my friends list who uses this method.

Pirates is alot of fun! I played it on PC though... It would be worth $10 or $15. I probably won't get this as my PC would play this just fine and there are no achievements.

I'm happy to see Black up there, I remember being extremely impressed by the graphics when I played that on the original Xbox. For that time period, the graphics were incredible. I'm, still not going to pick it up though due to a ludacris price, and no achievements...

Sid Meier's Pirates! is incredibly fun. I recommend that game to anyone. Black was a pretty sweet game for its time. I find it hard to go back and play older FPS's though now... they just don't seem to hold that same magic they did at the time they came out.

Pirates was a great game on the original xbox, had lots of fun playing that. Never enjoyed black, and never got into ninga gaiden.

I'll probably never use Xbox Originals because after playing with achievements I can't go back to playing without.

I liked Black one of my fave shooters of all time. Just out of interest does playing these games come up on your tag. Like would it say JimboNoel | Black

I gotta say I played Sid Meier's Pirates on the PC and it was when I first entered into the world of obsessive gaming. The xbox original version (which I do have downloaded brings the gameplay to such an easier form as well as turning up the challenging factor. It's fricking awesome and Achievements or not I played it for 6 hours yesterday:Bounce:

Got Sid Meier's Pirates and love it so far, it seems to pretty much just be a remake of the old NES game Pirates with a few tweaks here and there. Since it's release on the Originals service I've played that more than I have played my 360 games.

I plan on geting Ninja Gaiden Black some time next week.

I bought Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) and refuse to buy anymore until they at LEAST add basic guide functionality and/or achievements


02-17-2008, 07:32 PM
no achievements = no purchase

I never played ninja gaiden, and would get it if it weren't 6 GB, because it is no longer in stores. But I can probably find Black
