Game Room
No New Game Room Additions Until "Late April"
Written Tuesday, March 30, 2010 By Richard Walker

Anyone who was hoping for old school arcade cabinets to be flooding the Xbox Live Arcade Game Room will be sorely disappointed to discover that there won't be any new games added until the end of April.

The word comes from official Xbox community member 'trilobiting' who on the forums posted the following: "Just wanted to provide some clarification on when you can expect to see new games up on Game Room, as there appears to be some confusion around that area. New games will be added to the service every week, starting in late April."

Still, in more positive news, MS want to hear your requests for new arcade games to join the burgeoning ranks of retro classics in Game Room, and there's a forum thread where you can have your shout and suggest your most wanted Game Room title.

Personally, we were always a sucker for Silkworm on the ZX Spectrum back in the day. Bagsy the helicopter!

I hated being the jeep in Silkworm, as you had to jump over stuff. Boo! I demand Manic Miner!

Meglomaniac would be amazing! Granted it's a 90's title, but still, that was an epic game back in the day . . . !

We've nuked them . . . Takes me back!

I'm very lukewarm about Game Room right now. I think it was deceptive to describe Game Packs 1 & 2 as 'free' to download, when in fact each individual game has to be paid for. So what do you get for the free download? Er, the opportunity to pay for games you might already have on XBLA?? Hmmm. It's a nice enough concept, but should have happened 3 years ago. They're trying to retrofit this new construct to the existing XBLA, but greed is getting in the way. Had they bundled at least a handful of free games (sheesh, even one or two), I might have felt more warmth towards the idea. On the positive, the price point of individual games seems low enough to make it an attractive option for those previously not having bought such retro titles on XBLA. I remain to be convinced, but no doubt will yi

Yeah seriously, no pacman or space invaders? Unimpressive so far. Also, they could have given us a choice of one shitty mascot and game, for the love of god, surely nobody is that tight-assed. Except MS.

the games are mainly gash, although they are not that expensive ... 240MS Points would better spent elsewhere on add on content or new maps. We moan about wasting 1200 MS points on certain things but i'd rather pay 1200 for something decent than 240MS points to play some of this rubbish. I'd pay it for PAC MAN though.

Not a massive fan of game room to be honest, i think its a bit of a ripoff, especially for games that are older than i am plus i still have a working Atari 2600 with almost all of the games availible!! ( im 28 by the way)!! Still Silkworm was a classic!!

I was quite excited about this. But the current selection of games are a bit crap. I only bought one to check how the whole thing works. It's not bad, but 240msp is a bit high price to pay for such games, specially the Atari2600 ones. I wouldn't mind paying that for some better games, so I guess they should implement different pricing policy. All in all, with the problems at launch and the lack of new games for a month I guess it's a bit of a fail for MS.

this game room is very meh at the moment. if they dont release some good classics like qbert, pitfall and burger time i may lose interest in it all together. not actually planning to get alot of games for it. just those 3 more to go with the 3 i already have. mainly gonna play it for the achievement points. and there is no way im getting a game for it that i already have on the xbox live arcade. the idea of challenges to your friends is a good one tho.

I've found it all strangely addictive, and it's much more fun playing these old games, and remembering how much coin you used to put on the cabinet to play them (back in the day) as opposed to the relatively cheap 'movie rental price' they are charging for them now.

I vote for the release of the wire frame Star Wars games, now that would be awesome!

Shit, if I'd known they were gonna drag their feet on this, I would've waited another month to download it. Now I've gotta let it fester on my card for another month at 385 while I hope against hope that the next game pack includes a game I want to play? Also, what's with some of the games only offering 1 medal each!? I love Combat from my childhood, but if I'd known it only came with one friggin' medal I would've saved my $3 for something else!

@45 - Have to disagree mate. Love the C64. Grew up with it and man that hold some memories. Classic games like Pitstop 2, Spy VS Spy, Mayhem In Monsterland, Angleball, Dan Dare, Bullseye! The list goes on. I'd love them to jump on the wagon. The Wii virtual console has a good few C64 games, but surely we gotta see some on the game room/xbla soon???!!!!

I wish people would stop clamoring for X-Men or Simpsons arcade. Those are licensed games and there's no way Konami is going to pay extra money putting them on XBLA.

The Game Room has a few good titles. Finalizer, Battlantis, and Shao-Lin's Road. I already got all the gold medals for them and I was hoping for new games Thursday. Very disappointed they're waiting a month for new shit when so many people found the initial batch of games so lukewarm.

And had it not been for the Atari 2600 games, half of these others would have never existed. I personally love all of the Atari 2600 ones, but I also have a working 2600 still that I play. Was disappointed to not see more of the Activision titles put on there. I'm waiting for Enduro.

Phoenix would be nice, and maybe the retro OutRun. Hmmm, I'd like to see PowerDrift as well. Actually, there is a lot I would like to see on there.

BTW, you can get 80GS just for downloading and doing stuff with no purchase needed. Course, then you'll have a game with only 80/1000, but better than 5/1000 if you simply load the game up and delete it.

Drop the price to 100ms points and then start releasing 90's games.

Then go back to the original idea and start emulating Dreamcast titles....Do all that and you will have one very happy gamer.

They also need to add the LIVE functionality so we can play with other people. I got 2 friends who were very mad that they both bought the Football game and couldn't play with each other, plus it was a 2 player only game.

Simpsons would be awesome, but you won't be able to play it with anyone if there isn't LIVE support. 4 players is good, but online is better. Kaillera does it, so why can't MS?

Finalizer is a decent game in the gameroom for any1 that is actually trying to find one to play. I have to say though for me (besides the obvious of no content so far) the worst part is the fact you cant walk around!! come on now that couldnt have been to hard to do implement it!

But i cant really think of anything i would realllly want to have, there are a few retro games that are good for sure but come on do people really want to play games like "adventure" and "combat" and if they do is it gonna last for more than a mere half hour if that.

Alright everyone look, Game Room is awesome IF you have a bunch of friends who play it and have the same games as you. Competing for high scores are really fun. Second, you won't be seeing ANY licensed material like Simpsons or Xmen, because it would just be too expensive to make and a 240 msp price point would be too small when they could charge 800 to just put it in XBLA instead of $3 on GR.

You people want everything for free and don't realize it takes money to port a complete perfect arcade replica, and $1 just doesn't cut it.

honestly, ive been on the xbox side since 2004 playing xbox live for almost 6 years now...but they are getting so greedy. i recently bought a ps3 for all of the exclusives, and they have home which is evn better than this for free....there is a web browser built in and ps3 online(not that ive played it) is free....with this SHIT being the newest addition, i dont see how this could possibly keep me interested in Xbox..Natal is just gonna be another ripoff. Personally, all of the periphials are just gimmicks to make money. This Arcade is a joke

considering i couldnt load it on the first day, i just watched my brother play it from his xbox... if you cant walk around whats the point of decorating you game room? what is the point of avatars? just to make more money. The only time anyone besides you sees your avatar is from the dashboard and they cant even see the items you buy your character

Adventure is something I've been waiting a long time to have emulated without booting up the crappy Atari emulators. THANKS!

Would love to see more Atari games and classics on this beast. It has potential, as long as it gets attention!

Not sure if anyone else played the game HAUNTED HOUSE for the Atari 2600, but it was one of my favorites which is why I was excited to a see a small video of it when I started up my Game Room. Looks like it should be coming!

Also, MAZE CRAZE was a crazy fun time. Hope that comes to the Game Room also. Who doesn't like a leisure stroll down Nostalgia Ave.?

@79, well then what is the point of the Xbox itself? Oh yea, to make money for MS. Technically everything is made to make money. And seeing as your picture is of your avatar, you seem to fancy them quite a bit.

They need some latte 80's games on there.

I think it's wrong that I bought Millipede/Centerpede on XBL 2 years ago but are expected to buy them again for the game room.

As I have already bought them before they should be free to put in arcade.

If you think, like me, that the price for the games in game room is too high then you may want to sign an online petition. Just google "xbox game room petition". I don't think it will change anything, but who knows. We can at least say we tried …

Honestly the game room is terrible
The games are overpriced for what they are and the games that should be up there they can't even get acess to because there nintendo. I know that game room may apeal to older gamers who grew up in the 70s and 80s but I was born in 1995 and all these games to me are complete shit.

WOW i dont know why most of you are complaining the question clearly said suggest some games that you would like. NOT complain about game room and the things that are wrong with it. just stop moaning about every new game that comes out and how you dont like. If you dont like it dont get it.
