Manuals, Controller Layouts and Free DLC for Xbox Originals


One of the drawbacks to digital distribution – to me, at least – is the lack of a manual. Sure, it’s just another thing you have to find a place for, but I like being able to open up a manual and read about a game’s controls and other details. Xbox Originals, being digital distribution, have this inherent problem, but luckily Microsoft has provided all the information online – each game’s manual is available through, as is a controller map for each game. Nice.

Major Nelson has links to each of the seven launch games’ pages, PDF manuals and controller map here.

You also might have missed some free dashboard themes and picture packs – if you browse to each game in the Xbox Originals section, you’ll see an option to download this free content, as well as buy the game.

Okay, that makes the system plausible.
