The Xbox Live summer update is right around the corner, and Microsoft has released a list of the Xbox 360 games you'll be able to download directly to your hard drive at launch.
Along with Avatar clothing and accessories, movie sharing, and the ability to update your Netflix queue directly from your television (yes!), one of the main features of the Xbox Live summer update is the ability to purchase and play Xbox 360 titles directly from the console. Microsoft today released a list of the twenty-four launch titles for their Games on Demand service in the U.S., with big name titles like Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, and BioShock existing peacefully alongside more niche titles like Dance Dance Revolution Universe and Disney's Meet the Robinsons.
Want the full list? We thought you'd never ask.
