Looks like we win and with Microsoft’s help. After first releasing the 360 Live iPhone app for $1.99 and subsequently being talked to by Microsoft, creator Xavier Larrea has released a free version on the iTunes App Store. As the app now complies with Microsoft’s policy that all Xbox Live apps should be free, 360 Live should be here to stay.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about this news. I played the first game and there is nothing more satisfying than starting out as Darth Vader and being able to use the death grip. Prepare for another third-person action adventure set in the Star Wars universe.
Details from Lucas Arts about the game:
“With Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the epic story continues as players once again assume the role of the devastatingly powerful Starkiller – Darth Vader’s secret apprentice set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
Many CoD-ers have been expressing fears that when they receive their copy of Modern Warfare 2 that they will be at the bottom of the barrel on the leadboards. Robert Bowling of Infinity Ward has let us all know that all will be reset , creating a fair playing field for all those who had to wait to play the game.
I am all for people getting games early, but not for the sake of getting ahead of everyone else.
