New XBLA Browser Available Next Week

With the “Summer of Arcade” quickly approaching, Microsoft’s own Major Nelson has just announced a new platform to view and purchase Xbox Live Arcade titles. Called “Destination Arcade,” this new browser will allow you to sort Arcade games by price and community rating, see your friends’ recommendations, and provide a news feed for the latest releases. Major Nelson also states that the application will be available in the Games Marketplace section of the 360’s dashboard starting July 14, which is next Wednesday for those without calendars.

Does this feel like an extra layer in a sea of menus? Perhaps, but no information on the speediness or accessibility of the app has been released. So, for the time being, take a look at these screens of your future XBLA viewing platform.
