March, the month of big releases. Not only are both consoles getting some outstanding games but Major Nelson has also given us the heads up for this month’s Xbox Live Marketplace content. And, boy does it look good.
One thing Microsoft do extremely well is promotions and March is no different. Block Party will be gracing your NXE and with it comes a host of excellent titles, which you can read about in Peter’s hands on. Just give the links a little click.
The games included in Block Party will not only bring you endless hours of Xbox fun, but if you purchase all three, you can secure yourself an extra 400 MSP, which you could then use on some nostalgic treats in Game Room. Plus, Gold members who buy all three games will receive one month free Xbox Live as a thank you. Great.
Read on to see what else will be available next month.
