Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: May

Xbox Live Marketplace Roundup: May

Published On June 1, 2006 | By Anthony Barker | News

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

Maywas an overdose of Marketplace content for 360 owners. This was mainly due to E3 and Microsoft’s ‘Bring it home’ campaign, that left us spoilt for choice with the amount of items available to download on a daily basis. All this content pretty much made up for the empty April we had previously on XLM. We were truly spoiled for Demos on the XLM in May, with 8 Demos to play with, including our predicted Top Spin 2 demo as well as three pre-release title demos.

Yet again it has been another month where we are left screaming for more Arcade content, only UNO managed to make its way onto Arcade, which has been met with open arms among the Xbox community. The hot area for XLM in May was with trailers, as we were flooded with videos from the latest upcoming titles from the E3 show floor.

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 May.

With June already with us, what is there to look forward to this month on Xbox Live Marketplace? Well, already we have had more picture packs and themes from the likes of Hitman: Blood Money and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. We predict we will see the release of new GRAW content this month along with a final release of Street Fighter II on Arcade (please don’t let us down again MS!).

As for demos, we can expect the announced Prey Demo which was stated to be released on the 22nd June. During E3 there was an announcement of a Chrome Hounds demo which failed to show, so we can be sure to expect it this month prior to its release in early July. Other than that there is little to go on, but be sure to keep it locked to 360Monster for any demo announcements and we will be back here again with June’s round-up of Xbox Live Marketplace content.
