Bringing it Home ends with trailers

No demos on the final day of Microsoft's TGS/X06 promo; Lego Star War II character pack, five trailers bring event to close.

The final batch of Xbox Live Marketplace content associated with Microsoft's Bringing it Home promotion went up today, ending 10 days of daily downloadable content for the Xbox 360. While most gamers were hoping for a spectacular finale, the truth was little more than a fade to black, as no playable demos (aka Marketplace gold) were posted.

Five trailers were added today, including looks at the latest Xbox Live Arcade games, the Hong Kong-action-film-inspired John Woo Presents Stranglehold, the lawless football game Blitz the League, the spooky shooter F.E.A.R., and the cooperative first-person shooter Army of Two. There is also a free X06-themed picture pack available.

Though technically not part of the Bringing it Home campaign, a character pack for Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is also up on Xbox Live Marketplace. The download costs 200 Marketplace points ($2.50).

I loved everything. Best weak for downloads since E3'06. I hope MS event in Barcelona will give us a special treatment as well.

I loved all the content. (Though I opened a new account just to play Tenchu.) I was hoping to play the Assassin's Creed, Blue Dragon, or Lost Odyssey demos but alas I got to check out Sonic, Fear, WWF, Tenchu, and a few others. No complaints on my end. In fact I'm thrilled. It's just too bad I may have to wait a long while to get this much content again.

This was definately a dissapointment. i was hoping for it to end with a bang(A Lost Odyssey demo).

GameonDerek Umm....you remember what happened to the dreamcast right? Just because the system was not a huge commercial success doesn't mean that they weren't thrilled by it. And the Dreamcast was very successful until the ps2 hit. Japan loved the dvd player

This wasn't how I expected 'Bringing it Home' to end. Oh well!

Every day ( morning ) of X06 I would stay awake untill 2-3 AM... And, It seemed like every morning right around 3AM I would be rewarded daily. With totally new X06 X-LIVE marketplace content ( demos, trailers, themes, and g-picts ) freshly posted and ready for download. The bigger added bonus being that it was 3 AM here in California no one seemed to be awake because I was able to download all the new X06 X-LIVE content at mind boggling speeds. I noticed downloads would slow down dramatically after 5AM. BTW: I am not a fan of wrestling! But, the new wrestling demo on the X-Live marketplace is top notch. it is 50 times better than any wrestling game I have ever seen on any console!

Best part of X06 (in my own opinion) was definitely the showing of assassin's creed.

I really wanted to see an Assasin's Creed or Splinter Cell Demo but i think their just holding those off

It would of been nice to play a COD3 demo and a Viva Pinata demo, but MS might be waiting to relaease more demos because they have just made around 10 this month.

...not with a bang, but a whimper. Eh, at least it's better than the whole-lotta-nothing that we usually get on Thursday through Tuesday.

I hope the X06-themed picture pack has some Fable 2 pictures in it. I need to have a gamer picture that will match my cool Fable 2 dashboard theme.

I played the Lego Star Wars II demo and just like the the first game it sucks. I can't believe why people give the game such a high score. Play Ninja Gaiden instead and leave the lego for the kids.

I haven't felt this confident in a platform since the Dreamcast! The number of quality titles looks to be a sign of confidence from devs. Some serious stuff from Capcom, Ubi, EA and others makes me feel a whole lot better than this time last year. I like how Peter Moore stressed the word choice in his schpiel about the the HD-DVD drive. Since Bluray is the single biggest fault of the PS3s high price point, it illustrates that people would rather buy what they want rather than be forced to buy unwanted components. HD=BS

Best thing by far is the smackdown demo, very very slick stuff! The graphics are very next gen, good framerate, high quality all around. The idea of making a wrestler and bringing him on live to rumble is pretty damn sweet!

Though I was expecting a grand finally for Friday, I must say, BIH made you proud to be a 360 owner. TYVM Microsoft!

What's the point to this if they don't won't to release good demos.

Why are you guys complaining about no new demos, I saw at least 3 or 4 new ones, although Im only ever so slightly disappointed, I think this Bringing it Home stuff is awesome.

This is for everyone complaining that they didn't get this or didn't get that: How many other consoles have you been able to download exclusive content during a press briefing before? Excatly. Be happy that we got anything at all. I did want the COD3 demo though:(
