That 360 Masquerade game isn't an Arcade game.

Party Hard seemed interesting until I clicked the store link and saw the photos. Can't stand graphics like that.

anyone knows if Party Hard comes with twitch integration, like it's PC brother?
I got the PC version for 4€ so 12€ seems a bit much for that game

Am I missing something...uhm...arcade blowout?!? I'm not seeing it, it looks more like an arcade shutdown.

And....Justin Beiber? Really?!?! Out of all the music in the world us Rock Band 4 owners get 3 songs from Beiber!!?!? I'm really dumbfounded...I mean...I know his music sells but so does pretty much everything else. Does Harmonix just not care anymore?

Did April Fool's day come late this year?! Am I dreaming? Did DigDug, Pacman, Ms. Pacman, and Galaga get re-released AGAIN?! What is wrong with the current ports that are backwards compatible from xbox 360? Would it be sacrilege to update those with new achievements and features? I mean, how many times can one purchase Pacman before they lose their mind and end up committing crimes.

Nice to see id@xbox still churning out the junk as usual. Can we get current gen games please? The xbox360 was abandoned for this? THIS? 99% of the games on the goofboxone could run on the xbox360, or the xbox for that matter. How about we get more re-releases, ports, and versions of games we already have played, yeah, that would be nice. It's just too easy to complain anymore, disgruntled with a side of wtf.

Not gonna buy Homefront 2 for a while but it sucks that we get charged so much for games in the UK compared to the US as it should be £41.65 to match what it's price is in the US rather than a whopping £54.99 ($79.20)

I count eight(?) digital only Xbox One games, that's more than retail. #retailshutdown(?)

y u mad doe? They have hundreds of songs, you don't need to buy Biebs songs or even acknowledge it exists.

Multiple reasons exist for having them on the current gen.
1. They're easy to port.
2. PS4 doesn't have real BC, so might as well make new versions for both current gens if they're doing for one of them already.
3. Because they can.
4. Because they like money.
5. Do you not understand how the BC process works? It's not so simple to patch games from a decade ago or at the very least not cost effective.
6. Hey, easy 1000GS for the rest of us that will buy them.

Not everyone can work for a AAA studio or would even want to. It's pretty cool that smaller groups of people not in the industry can make the types of games they want and not have to worry about appeasing a board of people in suits that only want games that appease the casual majority.
