Whilst the title may sound extremely generous of Atari, it may be a little misleading. Today Atari announced that they will be teaming up with Japan's Q-Entertainment to bring you three of the companies' successful Xbox Live Arcade titles in one box.

The package, called Q3 (Qubed) at this stage, will boast the following three titles; Rez HD, Luminies Live and E4 (Every Extend Extra Extreme ... what were they smoking when they thought of that title!?).

So if you missed them first time around or want the chance to milk some more points out of them, then here's your chance.

Q3 (Qubed) is due to hit stores worldwide in spring 2009.

For a detailed description in to each game, read on:

Rez™ HD was released on Xbox Live Arcade in January 2008 and is a fast-paced action-shooter. Set in a cyberworld, the player targets the enemies and hacks the system while creating their own beats. The dynamic, total integration of visual presentation, sound and player input provides the ultimate audio visual experience.

Lumines™ Live! was released on Xbox Live Arcade in October 2006 and is considered one of the best puzzle games of all time. The title combines puzzles, music and video entertainment to create an addictively-fun gameplay experience. The Q3 version is scheduled to include the Base Pack along with additional content that will enhance and extend the gameplay experience.

E4 (Every Extend Extra Extreme) is a visual and audio shooter/puzzle experience originally released on Xbox Live Arcade in October 2007. The goal in E4 is to self destruct, creating large chain reactions by defeating the enemies, which will ultimately extend the life of the game. It features five game modes including “Wiz ur Muzik”, where players can implement their favourite music for a customized E4 experience.

They should call it "The Box That You'll Buy When It Becomes Really Cheap Box".

So these go in addition to the previous points? That would be silly.

im kind of getting sick of paying for xbl games and then having them released in box sets. i just saw galaga legions/pac man CE/mr. driller released on one disk the other minute. feels like getting ripped off by paying for it early- cause galaga just came out like 3 months ago. sheesh

This is seriously retarded. It's just another way for Microsoft to pocket a few pennies here and there. Let me guess it's probably going to get a $19.99 plus price tag as well. Especially because these games aren't worth the pocket change anyway. I guess consumers out there will be stupid enough to pay for this garbage especially because they are offering a few more measly-useless I might add-achievement points. I used to fall into the trap of achievement and the got to have them attitude, but there pointless because they offer you nothing in return. Now PS3 has the right idea when you earn trophies you can use them to buy things. That's what achievement points should be for. You play games you pay for, get achievement points and then cash them in.

Yes, how stupid of Microsoft to try to make money. They are just being ridiculous.

Also, NeotericDope, you are a moron.

Hmmmm...I have all 3 of these and they're all great games, so fair play for trying to introduce them to the masses. Just think they'll be a little too niché for Joe Public. Only place i could see this selling well is Japan...but none of them have 360s.

As long as they sell us the ENTIRE Lumines, this should be a neat set. None of that cutting it up in chunks bullshit.

That's a stupid comment - it's only like buying a retail game at full price, then seeing it 3 months later for half the price. If you bought the games already, hard luck, but in this way, MS can get these games out to more people (including people who don't even have access to the marketplace!)

It's a good thing if you ask me. I will wait for it to go down to a fiver in the preowned sections then buy it!
Rez HD is always good, glad I didn't buy it yet!

Re: the comment earlier about few people downloading Rez.

Rez HD is actually one of the all time best selling XBL games.

I sincerely hope you just forgot that Rez HD is part of this set. Cuz it surely does NOT suck. When the original goes on eBay for $80+ and then gets turned into a XBLA game AND becomes one of the highest selling and reviewed XBLA games, it really does not suck. According to Joystiq Rez HD had THE best launch on XBLA with 25000 purchases. If you havent played REZ yet, think of this box set as getting an amazing game along with 2 free good games.

@#13 Ministry:

Are you daft? Seriously? Microsoft is a company of thieves get a clue. Why pay for three old arcade games? IT'S POINTLESS!!!! Like Microsoft needs the extra money from a pointless release. They charge way too much for all there stuff. Especially the system sure it may be a cheap price on the market, but it's also a cheap, crappy, console. The PS3 may not have the games, but it has compete care and quality when it was made. Also let's talk about arcade releases or marketplace releases in general. Let's say the Legendary map pack for Halo 3. At it's release Microsoft charged 800 points, that's pricey especially when Bungie wanted to give it away for free. Just like Infinity Ward wanted to do with Modern Warfare's map pack. Microsoft is the epitome of America's capitalists b

Continued from above:

bull. There the perfect example why this country is in recession because capitalism will prevail. Them releasing three old arcade games is an advertisers way to get consumers to fall into a trap. It's how they make money. Oh and the moron thing quit putting yourself on a pedestal you downgrading people with words is just away to compensate for your own insecurities. All of it is economics 101.
