    one of my fav old school games

    Frogger original was best. So much fun playing it back then on an actual table cabinet.

    So I bought that version on XBLA long ago, but have not tried Hyper Arcade Edition.

    Is it true the next xbox will not come with “game” mode as standard but will need to be added as an app later?

    Should only be 400 points as it’s only Frogger.

    • mcmax3000

      It’s not only Frogger… It has a bunch of game modes.

      That said, from what I played of the trial, I’ll be passing (and that’s coming from someone who’s a big Frogger fan).

        I understand but there’s been so many versions of Frogger over the years I can’t see it warranting this price. 400 would’ve been much better.

          Some people said the same about Pac Man Championship DX.
          Those people were dead wrong.
          Yet I do not think Frogger Hyper will surpass it.

        Don’t think the trial does the games justice at all, surely should have allowed limited acces to Classic Frogger mode. The full game offers decent variety and good variation in graphics and sound. Seems to be a minority viewpoint though judging from the low number of leaderboard entries (<200 as at last night).

    This game is a dollar for the iphone. Can we just get Jet Set Radio now?

      I don’t think we’ll be seeing JSR until after SOA (unless ms allow them to release during). It’s up on Pnet, so it’s just a matter of time!

    Remember when Jeff Minter threw a hissy fit because a port of the original Frogger sold more than his Tempest clone?

    Good times.

    Another 200 gamerscore game? Uh, what happened to this?

    “Starting next month (April 2012) all new Xbox LIVE Arcade games
    will have the option to increase from 200 to 400 Gamerscore points,
    with the addition of up to 30 Achievements. Even better, this Gamerscore
    increase will be required in all new Xbox LIVE Arcade games starting in June 2012″

    • ElektroDragon

      I know! If they’re going to make FROGGER an 800 point game, at least give it 400 gamerscore!

    • NA A

      XBLA developers: Hold the shift key, then press the 8 key, then, optionally, a space, and then a 2. Done.

    • mcmax3000

      It has probably been done, and i the pipeline for a while, since before the 400 GS mandate. You’ll probably see a couple of 200 GS games hit here & there until the backlog is cleared out.

  • ElektroDragon

    Waiting for a sale… would have bought at 400.

    I probably won’t get any answer from you major but why is it that there is no mention for the games on demand promotions?

    For example, today Darksiders is 1040MP (13$), yesterday was AvP for 1200MP and the day before was Hitman Blood Money for 1200MP…

    And why is it that those promotions are only available for the US?

    Anyway, i recommend you American xbox 360 gamers to check xbldb website for those daily GoD deals… (or anyone for other deals, most of the time they have better information than the one provided here)
