A suggestion for future XBLA releases..?

I didn't really know where to put this, so I put it here :p

Anyway, here's my suggestion!

Instead of releasing individual episodes (like Wallace & Gromit) and potentially lose out on sales, and instead of selling full "seasons" (like Sam & Max) why not try this idea....

Release a free portal "game" that basically acts as a menu, and release the "episodes" as addon content, with an appropriate price :)

That way you have the advantages of releasing individual episodes (extra achievements for the GS mad, lesser file size limits, etc) AND the advantages of full seasons (a guaranteed (well, not quite) sale for every copy sold, rather than hoping each episode will sell as well as the last, an easy way to access bonus features, etc)

More importantly, it would allow the TTG preorder model to work on the 360 with no problems at all! You could put the portal "game" online a month in advance, for say, 3200 MS points, and every month release a new "free" addon, with chapters of the game!!

Simular ideas can be seen in XBLA game "Family Game Night" - I think this idea would work really well for TTG. Anyone's thoughts?

  • I posted this pretty much same idea back in March of 09 when FGN was first released.

  • It happens

    I have a perfect idea.

    Banjo Threeie. I was fine with Nuts N Bolts, but the best thing rare can do is forget about that game and make a new game like the older games. I mean they remade the first games to XBLA so why cant they do this.

    Because Rare is done with Platformers and Nuts N Bolts was better then the first two.

    hey i said nuts n bolts was a good game. I had fun making what I called, the ultimate vehicle. It was a car, boat, submarine, and plane all in one, it could defend itself in all angles, and had multimle "modes" Mode A is the normal mode mode B is using the dislocator thingie to dislocate in a tiny vehicle that can only fly and fire blue eggs. Mode C which is activated by self destruct in mode B which is just that spring chair that is popular. And mode D which is by using self destruct in mode A which is just mode B, but can carry stuff with the box.

    But enough about that, Nuts N Bolts just wasnt popular. We all know how fanboys are.
