New Xbox 360 Games On Demand: Dead Space And DiRT

The following Xbox 360 games are now ready for direct download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Dead Space & DiRT.

In my opinion these 2 games rank up amongst the best in their respective genres for the Xbox360, but am I the only one which thinks that Games on Demand are still priced too high?  Both are priced at £19.99 for UK gamers (pricing may vary between regions) and can be picked up in shops for around half of this.  Personally speaking if they were less than £10 each I would be more inclined to purchase one on impulse but not at almost £20.

When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura’s communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare-the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke’s repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet … at any cost. There are no refunds for this item.

  • Dead Space I would pay the $20 for, but I don’t see myself impulse buying something that is 20 bucks either.

  • $20 is a bit much for an impulse buy, especially when you can buy a used copy for less than that and install it to the HDD, although you’d need the disc, of course.

  • plus if you want to trade it or sell it or let a friend borrow it. On Demand, not so much.
