    After researching around i found that Scrabble will not be released:

    "Delving into the matter, a tangled web of Scrabble’s heritage appears. In 1952, original rights owner James Brunot sold the manufacturing rights to Selchow and Righter in America, but JW Spears began selling the game in Australia and the UK in 1955. The American rights were eventually purchased by Hasbro (who are making the Xbox Live Arcade game), but the European and Australian rights were passed onto Mattel.

    Looking at online retailer Amazon, all Scrabble board games are manufactured by Mattel. Furthermore, videogames based on the game (such as Ubisoft’s DS title) are licensed by Mattel.

    Thanks to a tricky legal situation, there is no chance of seeing Scrabble on XBLA in Europe, unless Mattel is publishing. "


    ...What a load of bollocks, they will miss out on loads of money lol..... idiots. I want the achievements removed from the game because i'll never be able to get them.
