Though Xbox 360 and PS3 both duke it out for supremacy with retail exclusives, the battle for arcade dominance has long been over. Xbox's arcade offerings are much more varied, vast, and of a higher quality than Sony's. This week's newest release is another great example of that.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
Developer: Mojang
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Price: 1600 MSP

Imagine it, build it! Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition lets you create worlds from the comfort of your sofa. Play alone or play with your friends. Explore, build and conquer!
