Coming soon: Destination Arcade


Destination Arcade The Mall

Next week we’ll be launching another way to browse content on Xbox LIVE Arcade and we’re calling it Destination Arcade. With a growing library of over 250 Arcade games, Destination Arcade will allow you to discover new games and content you enjoy through an easy-to-use visual browser.  You’ll have the ability to sort by price, community rating, and more!  Also, stay up to date on the latest arcade releases through a news feed and also find out what games your friends like and recommend. This brand new recommendation engine & visual browser app will be available in the US on July 14th from the Games Marketplace section of the dashboard. I’ve posted some screenshots of what it will look like if you want to take a peek.

Edit: We are now launching Destination Arcade along with the Summer of Arcade on July 21st

    Dear America
    you may not know this but there is a big place called Europe just across the pond from you, i know you wouldlike to forget about us but sadly you cant so why dont you stop putting region barriers up on the internet where there isnt any anywhere else

    thank you
    singed the world


  • RainbowDespair

    Looks nice, but what we really need is a Destination Indie.


  • zerodown es

    US ONLY????


  • xXDarkShotXx 93

    A bit useless….

    I really like the way the hole Marketplace is integrated to the Dashboard…


  • LittleBlueAlien

    U.S. Only – Microsoft, seriously – go do something to yourself. I’ll let you figure out what word I would use.


  • MajorMask

    Fun fact: Only 5% of the world’s population live in the USA


  • SalarymanDaishi

    Neat for US Gold members, certainly. With continous effort with stuff like this, 360’s home ground is slowly but surely getting set on stone and considering the market area, perhaps that’s just strategy. 360 is slowly but surely becoming increasingly more tempting within US while it continues to become increasingly less tempting outside US. You guys probably have a plan but this side of the pond, it’s really elusive. Used to be a happy Live subscriber about a year or two back but watching from the other side of the pond, only seeing increased reasons not to renew.


  • Toadasaurus

    This looks pretty cool.

    Hoping it comes to the UK after a successful launch in the US. :o)

    Really hoping we get a Destination Indie too!


  • Archangel3371

    Looks and sounds very cool. Hopefully this will roll out to the rest of the world very shortly after.


  • wiirule111

    This looks nice, but too bad its USA only. I hope its only a mistake that US is announced.


  • ninja ATA

    That looks cool!


  • tabicat

    If this is another application, I’m just going to skip it.

    It’s ironic, actually. Years ago, Microsoft said they couldn’t separate the web browser from the operating system. Today, Microsoft isn’t integrating *enough* on the Xbox 360.

    And you guys wonder why the Kin failed.


  • GREY860

    I will have to try it out to see how it works out. Seems kind of pointless.


  • Monhegan

    How about a “sort by Sale” option, or some way of prominently featuring the deals of the week?


  • technofranki

    So this looked like a nice feature. But again, it’s US only. Shame on you, Microsoft.


  • mccalejk

    It doesn’t say it’s only for the US. It just gives the US release date. You people need to read before you start complaining.


  • trickybuz93

    Wait so this is some app?
    Not like just straight up intergrated into the system?
    And why is it just US?


  • Lohengriehn

    Just a note from some of your user: If XBL means non-US users are just here to finance the developments over the pond, Im at the end with my gold membership. Still undecided though. Anyway, the development looks okay and its maybe worth a look. Btw…the rating system is BS. Ff you have enough xbl accounts (silver is enough), you can rate any game up to the skies…


  • The Bill Payer

    Looks cool, can’t wait to try her out.


  • The Pizman

    I’d love to see some Sega Master System games in this or gameroom. I’d also love to see Crime Fighters on XBLA anyone remember that old arcade game? it’s a 4 player beat em up. That would be awesome.


  • Xlrking

    Has that shiny look to it like the PSN has.



    Looks good.


  • Ark Hunter

    Nice I guess. Is it another “app” that will have to load like Zune? I hate that.


  • ShaggyB

    you know what id like, the ability to gift points again. That was a fun christmas.


  • Sogeman

    US only, are you shitting me? And don’t tell me it’s because of localization, I’d rather have everything in English than wait for stuff forever to get badly translated
