If I can't play my 100 game backlog of XBLA/few games on demand and less so indie games (would like to be able to play them too but this won't stop me if I can at least have xbla / games on demand) then I'll probably skip out on the next Xbox at least for awhile until I can find a really good price on one. what would really upset me even more would be if they made the 360 unable to connect to live or something and make it so you can't play any of your content (i think if you aren't online you cant? or i've had that happen before where i didnt have internet for a couple months and several things were unable to access).

i dont think they will cancel out the 360 when they release a next gen console though, they're still selling content and they've sold so many consoles at this point, seems pointless to ever do away with it until they're losing money on it.


Well from what I understand you can play all your content offline as long as it was the console that holds the licence for that content. So lets say you have an xbox (xbox A) and you buy a bunch of xbox live arcade games for it. You then go to a friends house and redownload those games on his xbox (xbox B). You can play all your xbox live arcade games on xbox A offline since the licences are registered to xbox A. However if your friend tried to play those xbox live arcade games offline he would only see them as a trial version. The only way to play the full arcade games on Xbox B would be to sign in the account that purchased those games and remain connected to xbox live. Microsoft has allowed users to transfer licences to other xboxes and removing it from the original because of things like RROD or if a customer gets a new console. Here is more information on the Digital Rights Management for xbox.

So is this another week with no sneak peaks at what the deal is going to be?


XBLDB will pick them up this evening and then MajorNelson will likely post a 2 week post on his blog around 12pm EST.

Posted about this earlier today, but I believe it got buried amongst others posting about achievements and disc/digital content. Same thing with the Blacklight Tango Down dropping to 400 points. Either that or people just didn't care. No biggy though & I didn't know it was free for 1 week only. Thanks for putting up the link and keeping us informed

Oh yea i remember reading about this or asking about it back when it happened. it was because I had bought a new xbox, and I still haven't done the license transfer thing, so I guess I have to do that at some point, how time consuming is it does anyone know?

I can't give you an exact number since it's been a while, the actual transfer itself is quick and painless, but you need to have both your console and your PC/Laptop connected to the internet at the same time requiring a router. It shouldn't take you more than 10 mins, but it was a pain for me because I like a hardwire direct connection and just switch my ethernet cord from Xbox to PC instead of using a Router. I used my much slower cell phone to do it, but it worked.

Edit: Oh after you transfer licenses you should check the console offline to make sure you can play all your games and if you can't, you'll have to redownload some of them - I didn't factor that in. Some games needed to be redownloaded after the transfer so I could play then offline.

My guess is probably nobody was interested was in blacklight. I downloaded the fun labs for if\when I get a Kinect. Waiting for sub-$50 for that.

I asked about it, but was quickly told it was not very good and nobody plays online and is a online only game and that sealed the deal for me.

Monday Night Combat. I have played nearly 500 hours of it, according to raptr. Still playing it after a year and a half.

Next most is probably Pinball FX2 but that's only around 60 hours or so.

My most played would probably be Torchlight, Monday Night Combat, Trials HD and Shadow Complex. Maybe SMB as well. So addicting.

Puzzle Fighter, Super Street Fighter II HDR, or Marvel vs Capcom 2. I still play the fighters, though not as often as before. I got 2 and a half years outa Puzzle Fighter before I called it quits. For 6 months, that one game dominated my gaming life. I really wish there were tourneys held for it, I would have made alot of money.

Sounds like me but with the two reversed currently. Haven't had DD for very long.

My tops are Castlevania HD, Torchlight, and Dungeon Defenders.

It does it automatically for PC and Xbox 360. Everything else has to be manually updated.

It's also not perfect, so it can miss things if you get knocked offline or it's slow to react to your activity.

I GUESS according to Raptr (which still thinks I have only 8 out of 31 achievements in FF13-2 despite getting them all just a few days ago), the XBLA game I spend the most hours in is Sonic Adventure (DX add-on included), with 37 hours. & that's after the fact I've played & beat the original version and the Gamecube version.

Yeah, considering the service is free there's really no reason why anyone should skip out on signing up. I wish I had known about it back when it launched. Then I might actually know my most played XBLA game. If I were to hazard a guess though, I'd say either Shadow Complex or Uno, both because I tried to go for the 200/200 achievement points. Winning 10 four-player games of Uno was neigh impossible since people would always rage quit toward the end.

Geometry Wars 2 is by far my most played arcade game, but I didn't have Raptr until a couple years ago, so that didn't get tracked at all. More recently, Banjo-Tooie, Super Meat Boy and Pinball FX2 are my top. http://raptr.com/praried0g
