Contra to hit XBLA Wednesday

Contra – one of the most widely known games ever – hit Xbox Live Arcade in a couple days, and this is one for the ages. Chances of this game getting a download from me are pretty high. Why? Because the asking price is 400 MS Points. A mere $5 for a classic that gets the Xbox Live treatment.

Sounds worth it to me! Here are some details:

“Contra” is available worldwide for 400 Microsoft Points.


– Players can opt to play the original arcade game or play in the enhanced mode with improved graphics and sounds.
– Xbox Live Multiplayer: Battle all 8 levels together over Xbox Live, or locally on the same console.
-Xbox Live features: Players can see how they rank against their friends with worldwide leaderboards and achievements.
– 12 achievements: “Contra” offers achievements which range from straightforward to challenging for players of all skill levels.
– New visuals: Enjoy enhanced artwork including rendered new bullet effects and explosions.

Even though it’s an older game, at least it’s a decent price. I hope to see a bunch of you on Live!

    You’re not the standard writer, dude. You definitely have something powerful to add for the net. Your theme is so powerful that you could almost get away with being a poor writer, but you are even amazing at expressing what you’ve got to say. Such a excellent blog. I’ll be back for more.

    Hello there, I couldn’t find any method to contact you, and so I actually hope that you simply read this remark. I have a website about leather purses, and wondered if you’d like to exchange links with me. I have inserted my e mail address in case you choose to get in touch. Thank you.
