    Lets get some facts straight about MS:

    1. THEY SET THE PRICING! When they talked to OXM in a article a few months back MS said word ford that while the game developer can ask for a price they want, in the end MS decides if that price is acceptable. If not MS lower or raises the price. A few developers have complained that MS will boost the asking price a little and they feel it hurts their game since they would have more buyers. So YES MS makes the final decision!

    2. On that same thing MS also said they do NOT allow free content very often because its a quote “Marketplace, not a freeplace.” So next time you want to know why some things aren’t free complain to MS. They are cheap people! You’d think with a hurting economy and their billions they could afford to be nicer to us.

    3. We make the difference. If you don’t like something about 360 then do something about it, or better yet don’t. As in don’t buy something. To many people still buy these overpriced arcade games and MS knows this and thats why they stay overpriced.

    @oAssassin Xo. “Microsoft does not allow free content”. So why is so much content up on XBLA.. free?


  • Firecrest

    Wow, I’m fairly disappointed with Turtles in Time. Basically, Ubisoft approached this game saying, “Gee, how can use as few original resources without calling this a new game?” I wasn’t a fan of the low-res 3D graphics before, but I at least thought they retained the original soundtrack. Much to my dismay, all the classic tunes were replaced with generic music that barely shadows the original stuff.

    Eh, at least the gameplay is decent and the online co-op is functional. But come on Ubi, a large portion of why we loved this game was its personality and arcade-style gameplay. What you guys did with this was extract all that and filled it with a concoction that left us with a sour aftertaste.

    I downloaded this game last night and had a blast. I was playing it with my 6 year old son and it was awesome sharing this game that I loved on the SNES with him.

    oAssassin Xo could not be more correct. Stop saying developers decide prices.

    Developers want to give things away for free many times and Microsoft will not allow that.


    Braid Premium Theme, developer wanted to give it away, microsoft says no

    Castle Crashers DLC, the whole reason this is taking forever is because the fighting between developers and Microsoft. Behemoth actually purchased hundreds of 5X5 codes so they could give the DLC away the first time around because they really didnt want to nickle and dime their customers.

    N+ extra maps, developer wanted them to be free, microsoft says no.

    Marble Blast maps. Took 2-3 years to come out because developers thought they should be free and microsoft wouldn’t allow it.

    How much more do I have to throw at you?

    The only time something is free is because microsoft screwed up (Undertow) or it is usually a promotional piece of trash like yaris, totemball or dash of destruction. The other free stuff is usually given away because the game isnt too popular like buku suduko or chessmaster live. Sometimes they give you something decent like the Cold Storage map on halo 3, but that is a very rare case.

    All this information is easy to find if you look around in some forums or developer blogs or discussions on gaming sites. So stop defending the big guy (microsoft) because they are the ones here creating the overwhelming amount of complaints due to overpricing.



    @PrintMatic, you forgot Texas Holdem, Aegis Wing and Australia got TMNT Arcade for free!(albeit for 1 hour)


  • Just2Lazzzy

    I actually like this arcade. Shocking, because I normally avoid the TMNT games. The gameplay is pretty sweet. Loving the 3D visual look to. “Why didn’t they put 3D graphics like this. On the other TMNT arcade” witch came out last year.


  • Epic Shotgun

    The graphics aren’t very good, and the game is very short (is it even the full game?!?) I LOVE TMNT but I find that I wasted 800 points sadly..I beat the game twice once with 4 ppl in 10 mins and again with 2 in 15 mins. Now what?

    I kinda wish it had some arena where ppl could fight in hard could that be to make? oh well..


  • SeeUInTheFuture

    Meh im passing. I’d rather buy a SNES and the cartridge than this butchered version of my favorite game ever. No thanks Ubisoft, you will not be raping my childhood today.


  • DavidGX

    Not worth 800 points.

    I’ve played through this game twice, now. Once in multiplayer, once in single player. My thoughts:

    The devs aimed at the arcade version, some of the stages/bosses you remember from the SNES and Genesis versions were not in the arcade version. It is what it is.

    Before going further, I’ll say that I wish we had a chance at the SNES and Genesis versions on XBLA. I’d buy both.

    Anyway, my experiences:

    Multiplayer: I played 4-player co-op with my wife, brother, and sister-in-law. All of us are old enough to remember the Ninja Turtles cartoons, games, and such. We had a great time with this game. Just that enjoyment, the first time through, was well worth the asking price. 4-player co-op is runs great, it’s chaotic, lots of fun. Highly recommended that you play this way. For the record, the wife was the only survivor… She beat the Shredder. The rest of us lost our lives on that stage.

    Singleplayer: With more of a chance to really get into how this game works, I picked up on a few things. First, throws are entirely random, and I’m not a fan of that. Charging is now automatic, and you can’t do the charge/jump/attack move where you run, handspring, and ram the opponent. I missed that move a lot, playing this. Also, the bosses are much harder than in any version I played previously. 8-way run is a nice bullet-point, and it takes advantage of being in 3D, but it took away some of the tight controls. I missed the original music.

    All said, I still thing this is worth the 800 point asking price. Try it out, people.

    And Konami/Ubisoft… Keep ’em coming. I’ll be waiting for all the 16-bit Turtles games to show up on XBLA. Oh, and why hasn’t the X-men Arcade game shown up yet? 6-player co-op would be a lot of fun.
