Monday 15th – Thursday 18th June 2009

The Xbox Live Marketplace is back after a few days absence. Due to no new content over the weekend or Monday, the Xbox Live maintenance on Tuesday and Xbox Live Marketplace problems yesterday, today’s Marketplace update is as jam-packed as ever. Possibly the highlight of the lot is the three new Xbox Live Arcade titles and there’s also a demo to download. Here is the full Xbox Live Marketplace update for Monday 15th – Wednesday 18th June 2009:
