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:
â€œContraâ€ 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: â€œContraâ€ 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!
