Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: March

Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: March

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

It’s that time again! March is over and done with and it’s at this point that we round off last months bundle of goodness that appeared over the last 31 days on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

March was a fruitful month for Xbox 360 gamers; we saw the release of The Outfit and Ghost Recon 3 demos as well as surprising demo releases for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Blazing Angels and Burnout Revenge.

Two new Arcade titles, Jewel Quest and Feeding Frenzy appeared in March, though we were disappointed by a no show from Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting which has now been rumored to be released in June!

Not that it was needed, Ghost Recon 3 had its marketing cap on in March with 8 trailers for the title, from development diary’s and release trailers to fan videos from Mega64.com. Plenty of themes and picture packs were also made available for titles released in March, leaving most gamers undecided as to what to part their Microsoft Points with.

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 Europe for March.

So what’s in store for April on Xbox Live Marketplace? Well we don’t have many leads to go on this time round. We will most likely see demos for April released titles such as Top Spin 2 and possibly Tomb Raider: Legend. 360Monster would also like to see some exciting content added to the Arcade this month with the likes of HoopWorld or the Unreal 3 engine powered Robo Blitz, we can only hope. 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 April.
