XBLA This Week: Four Family Game Night Games
Written Tuesday, March 17, 2009 By Alan PettitView author's profile
The first four games in the Hasbro Family Game Night line-up will be available this week on the Live Arcade: Connect Four, Battleship, Scrabble and Yahtzee. Each will be priced at 800MSP and they will all be lumped together in terms of achievements (and hosted by Mr. Potato Head!). If that notion confuses you, go ahead and click the "Achievements" link above this article. All games under the "Family Game Night" banner will be launchable from one program (look at the left side of the screenshot below), even allowing you to do a "party mode" which will mix the games up as you play online with friends.
The three other announced games of Boggle, Sorry! and Sorry! Sliders will be released later this year. No word yet if more games will be added to the FGN banner, which I assume would effectively increase its gamerscore by 200 for every games. If these sell well I don't see why not though.
Note: Scrabble will only be available on the North American marketplace. If you live elsewhere and wish to get Scrabble you'll have to use a Silver NA account to download the game before you play it on your main tag.
