Toy Soldiers
Release Date: 3rd March

Your army of antique toy soldiers battles it out across five unique maps, all with multiplayer potential. Deploy infantry, pilot zeppelins and fighter planes, or send in the cavalry…whatever it takes to earn victory in this action-packed strategy game.

Scrap Metal
Release Date: 10th March
Price: 1200 Microsoft Points
Use rocket-launchers, flamethrowers and more dastardly tricks to ensure you finish first in more than 60 single-player missions. Or challenge friends to a Destruction Derby plus other superb multiplayer modes in split-screen or across Xbox LIVE.

Perfect Dark
Release Date: 17th March
Price: 800 Microsoft Points
The celebrated action adventure from Rare, starring Joanna Dark in her landmark first mission. Newly ‘re-mastered’ in high-definition and upgraded character models, you can play this classic shooter solo, 2-player split-screen or 8-player online.

Game Room

Price: Free Download – 400 Microsoft Points: dual-platform; 250 Microsoft Points: single platform; 40 Microsoft Points: single play
More than 30 arcade classics in their original cabinets can be yours in your virtual game room. Couch Play mode lets you invite friends for two-player challenges at home, but the fun really takes off across Xbox LIVE with leaderboards to aim for.

Microsoft is offering 400 Microsoft Points to all gamers who purchase each of the four titles and an additional one month of Xbox Live Gold for current Xbox Live Gold subscribers. There will also be some new Avatar clothing and items based on the games releasing and, last but not least, Microsoft are unlocking Xbox Live multiplayer for all Silver Subscribers during the weekend of 26th – 28th March. Phew!

So stock up on Microsoft Points as March looks set to be a great month for the Xbox Live Arcade.
