Hasbro Family Game Night for Live Arcade

Casual monsters (that is you FYI) who own a Wii may have opened up the Hasbro Family Game Night on Christmas Day and promptly played it for an hour with the family before getting bored.

EA have decided to bring these family-friendly games to the Xbox Live Arcade during 2009. The roll-out of titles will begin in the Spring. The games that make up the package include Boggle, Battleship, Yahtzee, Connect Four, Sorry! and Sorry! Sliders. Each will be released individually for a price unknown at this stage.

“We believe our Hasbro Family Game Night channel on Xbox LIVE Arcade will be one of the most dynamic and fun collections available on the platform,” said Chip Lange, General Manager of EA Hasbro. “We’ve been given the unique opportunity to create an exclusive EA Hasbro branded destination within the Xbox Live Arcade so players can easily find and play our lineup family-friendly digital board games. Just as families have game closets in their home, they will also be able to stock a digital game closet serving up hours of interactive play for kids and adults alike.”

The games will all be adapted for the 360 with achievements and online play. The first of them will be showcased at CES which begins on Thursday in Las Vegas.
