Texas Hold 'Em XBLA

Anybody know when this is coming out?

The achievements look hard but fairly simple

Yeah, I don't know how they expect you to get a Royal Flush or win ten hands in a row (unless the computer instantly folds on an all-in). Oh well, what do you want for free? I can't wait until this comes out!

I read that recently too. Not sure why they did it though.

As far as the achievements go, most look like they should be fairly simple, especially if you can play with friends. There are a couple though that look like they will be tough and take luck to get.

I'm pretty sure they confirmed it for 800 points just so you know how many points to save up.

July 13th -- Gamespot
"Gamers won't be able to play for money, but that shouldn't bother too many because the game itself is free, making it the second free game for the Xbox 360 after Hexic HD (available gratis on the optional 20GB hard drive). Card sharks will be able to play standard games, tournaments, and various scenarios, as well as create their own poker variants for up to eight players."

July 23rd -- Gamespot

"Speaking with game blog Joystiq, Xbox Live Arcade group manager Greg Canessa said that gamers will have to pay to play the popular card game.

"First of all, [Texas Hold 'Em Poker] won't be free. We haven't decided on what the final price will be, but it will not be free," he told Joystiq.

GameSpot contacted Microsoft for confirmation, but the company would only say, "We have not yet provided any official details regarding pricing on this title. Texas Hold 'Em Poker is still in development, and full details regarding the launch date will be announced."

So why the change of heart? Early Internet reports stated that the game would be free because it was being sponsored by Riverbelle.com, an online casino. The Xbox.com listing for the game makes no mention of Riverbelle anywhere, an odd business practice for a major sponsorship deal. One possibility is that Riverbelle dropped its sponsorship, perhaps forcing Microsoft to charge for the game. Attempts to reach Riverbelle were unsuccessful as of press time.

But that's not all. The game's release date of August 23 may have folded. On Xbox.com, the game's Web page now shows a release date of "TBD." As for when gamers can begin bluffing on Xbox Live, Microsoft would only say, "Specific details regarding the launch of Texas Hold 'Em Poker have not yet been announced, please stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks."

Sorry for the long read, but I guess this article ties a few loose ends. Too bad the release may be pushed back, I was really looking forward to playing online in late August.. :/

Nice first post man

Damn man, why can't they just release this ASAP. Another delay

There can't be that much to do to make a Poker game, considering how much time they've had

Agreed. I was hoping to be able to play this game before school starts up, but that doesn't appear feasible anymore...

this is just a guess, but im thinking they'll release it during their next "xbox live arcade Wednesdays" spurt, which is more than likely going to be in september

Well it was said to be August the 26th according to XBox.com BUT it's now gone to TBD So September is probably a good shout

winning 10 hands in a row is very easy.. heads up against the comp he folds if u raise everytime.. i won close to 25 hands in a row. i also luckily got a royal flush
