Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: July

Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: July

Published On July 31, 2006 | By Anthony Barker | News

It’s that time again! July is closing up shop and it’s at this point that we round up the bundle of goodness that appeared over the last 31 days on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Looking over the content released in July we have been blessed in all the areas of the Marketplace, yes even the Arcade! This month we saw a few behind the scenes trailers for the games; Mass Effect, LOTR: The Battle for Middle Earth II and even Halo 3. Demos in July we’re a mix of titles already on sale such as DOA4 and the time limited Rockstar Table Tennis to some that were close to release like LOTR: BFMEII, N3 and NCAA for the American and Canadian folk.

It’s good not to repeat my self again this month when I talk about the Xbox Live Arcade. Our prayers were answered with the announcement of ‘Arcade Wednesdays’ this month, where we hope to see a release of an Arcade title every Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how long they will keep this up for, but even if some weeks slip, it will be better than the past months of suffering in an Arcade drought.

Below you will find our extensive list that features all available downloads on XBLM for the UK (and other countries this time) for July.

XBLM: August look ahead…

With Q4 releases looming, things will start to pick up over the coming months. In August we will see demos of Saints Row and possibly Dead Rising if we are all good boys and girls. XBLArcade will still be shining (we hope) with the release of Street Fighter 2 on the 2nd August and Pac-Man the following week after. If we look at the leaked info sheet there is a possibility we might see Lumines Live and Roboblitz in the month of August. Be sure to keep it locked to 360Monster for any demo and Arcade announcements and we will be back here again with Augusts’ round-up of Xbox Live Marketplace content.
