The First 30+ Games For Microsoft's New Game Room

Microsoft confirmed last night it was bringing the Game Room virtual hang out space to Xbox 360 and Games For Windows this year, an online arcade and - ahem - virtual console for your Xbox Avatar. What games will Xbox 360 owners get?

Initially, the service will launch Q2 2010 with 30 original arcade and old school console games, with Centipede and Asteroids Deluxe name-checked as leading the charge. The line up is comprised entirely of games for the Atari 2600, Intellivision and arcade offerings from the likes of Atari and Konami.

As the line-up is announced to reach 1000 games, it will at some point have to go beyond that small list of companies.

The following 30 games were showcased in the Game Room debut trailer, with a few more making cameos, but not yet officially announced.

1. Centipede (arcade) 2. Asteroids Deluxe (arcade) 3. Tempest (arcade) 4. Crystal Castles (arcade) 5. Lunar Lander (arcade) 6. Jungler (arcade) 7. Road Fighter (arcade) 8. Scramble (arcade) 9. Finalizer (arcade) 10. Tutankham (arcade) 11. Shao-Lin's Road (arcade) 12. Super Cobra (arcade) 13. Red Baron (arcade) 14. Gravitar (arcade) 15. Battlantlis 16. Astrosmash (Intellivision) 17. Mountain Madness Super Pro Skiing (Intellivision) 18. armour Battle (Intellivision) 19. Space Hawk (Intellivision) 20. Sub Hunt (Intellivision) 21. Sea Battle (Intellivision) 22. Space Armada (Intellivision) 23. Astrosmash (Intellivision) 24. Star Raiders (Atari 2600) 25. Outlaw (Atari 2600) 26. Yar's Revenge (Atari 2600) 27. Millipede (Atari 2600) 28. Football (Atari 2600) 29. RealSports Tennis (Atari 2600) 30. Combat (Atari 2600)

Sky Diver for the Atari 2600 makes a brief appearance in the first Game Room trailer, so expect it - and many other 2600 titles - eventually. The initial Game Room leak showed off games like Shark! Shark! and Star Strike for the Intellvision and Atari's RealSports Baseball and Realsports Basketball, so expect those too.

    That must be a really awesome game to be in the arcade twice.

    Awesome. When are they going to drop the price on this "service", cos I really feel I should be giving M$ more than my $80 a year XBL Gold subscription...

    So it is not free for Gold members?
    MS are starting to annoy me, The $80 a year I am paying them should be for more than just their permission to play games online.

    I must have missed a memo....

    How much MSP or USD is this going to set me back?

      Reading the live CES coverage it said something like 240 MS or 400 MS points. Then something said 80 MS points (maybe it was 40) for a once of play.

      I believe, free the play - but cost to own. So you can play it outside of the Game Room. Or perhaps if that is kinda pointless, free to play so many times a day etc...

      It is kinda getting a tad ridic with all the things they are adding and whats to come. Then again i only paid $50 for my 12 month.

    MS will do what they always do; give us the basic product for free, a few games, and then make us pay for arcade games we want to play. If that's the case, I'm not paying probably a high price (100 MSP+) for each game I want to play.

    There is no known price on it, but everyone's assuming because this is M$ thats its gonna be extra

    Where is mappy? MAPPY I TELL YOUl
