Sure u can get it for free whatsoever, whether is free or not. You can surely see the beauty of playing multiplayer on these without actually bring your friend to arcade parlour.
Having grown up during the arcade's prime, I'll definitely pick it up regardless if it's free or will cost some MS points. The call of nostalgia is just too great to resist...
Nice idea, but not likely to amount to much. Now if everyone could take their XBLA games to and from PC and Xbox that would be a little more important. I have a feeling this will be Gold members only. At least MS is trying to find things to add value to the Gold membership. Too bad they're not doing a good job with the feature list... maybe I just really am not in the demographic they are after for Gold memberships? _
with the computing power of the 360 why would anyone be interested in playing such ridiculously obsolete games?
Free, only need silver live access (free xbox live account in other words) = good idea Any kind of cost or need gold live access = meh, pass, All these kind of games are available online for free, so you can't expect to charge for them. Something tells me however it will be free so should be fine if you feel like wasting a an hour in front of the tv playing some old school games :)
