I am so glad that XBLA has been slowly moving away from arcade ports to a more sophisticated games such as Shadow Complex and now Defense Grid. The quality of the XBLA games have been getting better and better as it get’s older.
I remember when people would say that only the PS3 had real games on it’s service (no names) but when you see titles like these coming to the XBLA platform, one could argue that these titles even put some full fledged retail disk based games to shame. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of down-loadable only games.
