Posted on June 30, 2008, Chris Xbox Live Arcade Gets Soulcalibur on Wednesday for $10, Plus Wits & Wagers DLC
Only one new game will be releasing this week on Xbox Live Arcade, but we already know it’s going to be a great one. Soulcalibur will be released this Wednesday for just 800 Microsoft points ($10), complete with achievements, 19 characters, and an absurd number of leaderboards. There will be sixty leaderboards in total, spanning the different characters and game modes — it almost seems like too much, but I’m sure the hardcore fan will love it.
Wits & Wagers will get its first post-release downloadable content on Wednesday. A question pack containing 280 new questions will be released for 320 Microsoft points ($4), which seems like a pretty fair price for that number of questions. I haven’t even made it through the initial batch of questions, though, so I won’t bother with this for the time being, although it makes me wonder how things will work online if I try to play with someone who has purchased the DLC. Fragmenting the community of players on a small Xbox Live Arcade game isn’t a good idea, and I don’t think people who purchase the DLC will be pleased if they go online and end up in a game where they can’t use it.
