Game Room would be better if they let you stick XBLA games in there, it would be especially awesome with the cabinets for games like Outrun and Virtual On. It would just be a more advanced way of looking at someone's gamerscore / what games they've played. Also a cool way to show off your virtual collection.

The interface sucks too, should have let us walk around with our avatars.



That sounds like an awesome idea...seems like they totally missed the boat on that.

I think the Game Pack stuff is going to be Game Room's downfall. It's really stupid.


Yea its almost exactly why Home is so bad on PSN. Dling packs/areas.

I would have thought they would have learned things like this dont work!

In the link is another couple of links for places to tell Microsoft what you want.

Late April? As if the games themselves couldn't kill Game Room, the time between games helps turn the knife a little.

I was excited, probably unnecessarily so, about the Game Room concept but the final product is a massive letdown. Emulators and other disc compilations, as others have said here already, have done this far better -- as much as "walking around" is sort of cool, I can't bring myself to actually pay even a couple of dollars for games I can play elsewhere for nothing. Games that, frankly, aren't even worth a few dollars anymore to play.

I was hoping I could walk around my arcade mall, ride an escalator etc, the one nice thing I noticed was your avatar and your friends avatars are rendered a lot better. you could see detailing in the ODST armor. Still, seems wrong to buy virtual tokens and games to play when you're already paying for XBL gold. I think my coleco still works w/the atari adapter.

if MS somehow figures out how to profit from the masses by developing XBL sims with our avatars, they've won...oh noes...

So wait a friend told me if you both buy the same arcade console and play in your friend's arcade you can gain tokens that way?

I've only found three games that I felt were worth buying... but really I'll be stoked if they release Tron or the old Star Wars arcade machine. I think that this is a good idea for Microsoft and it's been fun competing for high-scores with my friends.

Microsoft's Game Room is on par with Sony's Home for being completely worthless.

Tutenkamen or whatever it is called... I always liked that game in the arcade. Only one problem: this is the first time I've seen just how badly the 360 d-pad sucks. The game is virtually unplayable with the d-pad. It's better with the analog stick, but still not ideals. But I have a Hori HRAP EX-SE, so I'm good there, but for others?

Can you say "epic fail"?

All "new" games indefinitely delayed...
