In an interview with, Xbox Live's David Edery stated that the limit of XBL titles has now been upped to 350 megabytes. When asked the question "And you're upping the size of Xbox Live Arcade games as well to 350 megabytes?" He responded with:

"Yeah, it's a steady progress. We've been listening to our partners, listening to our customers to try and get a feel for what's right. We don't want the size limit to hit the roof because we think there's some value in promoting small pick and play experiences that don't cost USD 20 million, it's good for the ecosystem."

What does that mean for us gamers?

Well, it means that the developers of future XBL titles will get more freedom to add content and such, hopefully resulting in bigger and better XBLA titles. At the end of the day, more content and better graphics can't be bad. The only downside is you'll have to wait longer to get your hands on titles as download times will obviously be increased as the games get bigger. But hey, it's a small price to pay for better value for your hard earned cash.
