Splinter Cell and Metal Arms coming to Xbox Originals

Ubisoft's Chaos Theory and Vivendi's A Glitch in the System set to make downloadable debuts on Microsoft's latest console next Monday.


When Microsoft originally announced its Xbox Originals initiative, the plan was to release games from the company's first console for download on the Xbox 360 at "a very steady flow" approaching a weekly basis. Five months down the road, the initial offering of Xbox Originals has expanded by only four games (Ninja Gaiden Black, Sid Meier's Pirates, Black, and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey).

While the program is off to a slower start than expected, Microsoft is continuing to add to the roster of downloadable Xbox games. On the blog of Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, the Xbox Live director of programming today announced that two new games would arrive on the service next Monday. Specifically, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download Ubisoft's 2005 stealth game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, as well as Vivendi's Metal Arms: Glitch in the System.

As with all Xbox Originals, both titles will be available for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15) each. For more, check out GameSpot's original reviews of Chaos Theory and Metal Arms.
