Box art break for...explain that again?
That super sweet retro Arcade that is coming down the pipe for X-Box 360 owners...just found a little bend in said pipe. From the Game Informer site comes this bit of shocking news:
"Any Game Room arcade titles that you may have already bought as Xbox Live Arcade games won't transfer over to the Game Room, which is due this spring. We talked to a Microsoft representative on the topic, who told us that the company considers the Game Room titles different from their XBLA counterparts because they are the original versions and not "revamped" like those on XBLA. Game Room games will cost between 240 and 400 MS points, so even though you may have to buy them a second time, they should at least be cheaper than those you've already bought."
Yeah...I'm thinking I will not be re-buying the arcade titles I already have...though I am totally getting that pitfall release pictured above. But still this is kind of an odd move on the part of Microsoft, surely they would be able to have an option of 'porting' your arcade collection to the game room.
