Game Add-Ons

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (1200 pts)

This add-on gives players the chance to use new characters Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and Oni Akuma.   Follow top players, view the Elite Channel, and check out the revamped My Channel.  You can even play against people who have not yet purchased SSFIV ARCADE EDITION. This downloadable content is for Super Street Fighter IV only and is not a stand-alone title.

Games On Demand

  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood - $39.99 – Live and breathe as Ezio, a legendary master assassin, in his struggle against the powerful Templar Order.  For the first time, take part in the new multiplayer mode and match skills with players around the world.
  • The Darkness – $19.99 – On his 21st birthday, the destructive powers of a timeless force known as The Darknesss awaken within Jackie Estacado, a hitman for the Franchetti crime family.  Learn to control his newfound powers in this First Person Shooter as you attempt to take back the Franchetti crime family from Jackies “Uncle” Paulie who is universally despised.

Kinect Fun Labs

This free download allows players to experiment, play, create, and show off and share with your friends.  Not truly a fleshed out title, it’s fun to play with tools that can finger track to create 3D art, capture images to create new avatars, and even make digital characters or content via Kinect scanning!  Check it out and see a little more of the power the Kinect has.
