Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: April

Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: April

Published On May 2, 2006 | By Anthony Barker | News

It’s that time again! April is over and done with and it’s at this point that we round off the bundle of goodies that appeared over the last 30 days on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

April wasn’t as an exciting month as March was for Xbox 360 gamers; other than the release of Tomb Raider: Legend and an offline Ghost Recon 3 demo, the rest of this month was filled with demos for the older launch titles. Throughout April, the Marketplace saw nothing new which is a little disappointing and the rumors of a Street Fighter 2 release at the end of the month has been and gone.

Overall, April seemed to be the month for Tomb Raider: Legend, with the demo, 6 packs of themes and picture packs for fans to part their gamer points with. The Xbox Artist of the Month didn’t seem to be reoccurring feature until the very end of this month, with The Fray from Sony Records appearing on the Marketplace on the 30th.

So if your shoulder button fingers are sore from flicking through all those XLM pages, scroll on down to our extensive list below that features all available downloads on XLM for the UK in April.

——————————————————————— So what’s in store for May on Xbox Live Marketplace? Again we don’t have many leads to go on this time round; we hope to see demos for Top Spin 2 at least. With May being the month of E3 we have a bundle of trailers and demos to look forward to, as we are promised playable content direct from E3 when announcements are made on the show floor. It is expected that many of these announcements will be for the Marketplace and hopefully some much needed titles for the sparse Xbox Live Arcade. Whatever happens, be sure to check back with us again at the end of this month when we round up what’s been happening inside XLM during May.
