Hmm... looking at the leaderboards, I'm not sure I can compete in the Lumines Challenge. And after looking at the demo, I'm not sure I'd WANT to compete in the Small Arms Challenge.
Small Arms is an OK game, and I will participate in that. But not Lumines Live!, too expensive in my opinion. Good luck to all participating!
Microsoft should announce these things like months in advance also Turb06 unless your one of those ppl who scored above 5-10 million each time you play you wouldn't have a chance.
My guess is that there will be more to come! probably have monthly tournaments and stuff I would guess. P.S. I already have a 360 and would spend a few MS points on Lumines, I wouldn't however spend 250 dollars on it, when I don't need to! (since I don't own a psp [yet])
nice, i need to sign up try and win a high def tv lol, even though i allready have three, you can never have enough of those things.
Well thats awesome..i dont own them games and wouldnt be too good at them but its nice to see friendly competition being created.
people quit hating on ms. they are trying to promote their community and all some of you people can do is complain. Soon ms may, if you all quit complaining, have tournaments for games like GoW and Halo if you would see that ms isn't all bad.
My high score for the 60 times attack is 84 and the weekly high score right now is 130something...I don't think I'm gonna win this one.
"They're not ripping themselves off. They're ripping off the consumer. Why would they make an Xbox Live Arcade game $15 and then not even include all of the content?" Possibly because all of the content is already available for upwards of 30$ on the PSP?
Registration doesn't work for me. "There is an issue with registration at this time. Please try again later. " It's been saying that all day.
"Oh God I know. Isn't is just pathetic that Q Entertainment ripped off a game made by...wait a minute...Q Entertainment? Ugh. These publishers who rip off their own games need to stop!"

"Too bad Small Arms is kinda lame, and Lumines Live is a ripoff." Oh God I know. Isn't is just pathetic that Q Entertainment ripped off a game made by...wait a minute...Q Entertainment? Ugh. These publishers who rip off their own games need to stop!
Too bad Small Arms is kinda lame, and Lumines Live is a ripoff. They could do other things to try to sell more copies of these games rather than tease us with a tournament, then let us down when we see what games it's for.
