As part of the “steady progress”, Edery confirmed word that they’ve raised the XBLA’s size limit to a hefty 350MB after they’ve been “listening to our partners, listening to our customers to try and get a feel for what’s right.” The raise in file size limit is, what we think overall to be a good thing for the market that will probably allow richer, deeper and more involved XBLA games. We agree with Edery, it’s just “good for the ecosystem.”

  • I always thought that the 150 megabyte limit was a little small, especially for all those HD remixes of older games. Hopefully this allow better games has they are allowed to add more content with a single release.

  • Good to see that they are doing this, but expect the prices to possibly be 1200 MS points or higher.
