XBLA Block Party Games Priced And Dated



If you’ve enjoyed Microsoft’s last two Summers of Arcade, then you’re probably excited for their upcoming Block Party. Want to know how much the HD overhaul of Perfect Dark is going to run you and when it’s coming out? Read on.

March 3: Toy Soldiers (1200 MS points)
March 10: Scrap Metal (1200 MS points)
March 17: Perfect Dark (800 MS points)
March 24: Game Room (Free, but games are 240 to 400 MS points)

The Block Party also carries over the Summer of Arcade tradition of rewarding dedicated gamers who buy all the games. If you grab all the games Microsoft will credit 400 MS points back to your account and throw in a free month of Live if you’re already a Gold member.

If you don’t have a Gold account but want to give all the multiplayer goodness a try, Microsoft is setting up a trial window. From 12pm ET on March 26 to 12pm March 29, the multiplayer functions of all the Block party games will be unlocked to Silver Members.

If you want to know more about two of the big Block Party releases, check out our hands-on impressions of Perfect Dark and the Xbox Live Game Room from X10.

Anybody going to check out these Block Party releases? I’ll bring the barbeque chips and potato salad.

  • Soooooooooooooooooo pumped for Perfect Dark wooot woot!!


  • Yes!!!!!

    Perfect Dark for 10 bucks?

    I would have gladly paid fifteen, but I'm glad that microsoft isn't gouging us.


  • It's nice to see them reissuing old games, but some of this seems like simply an attempt to suck more money from old series that have either gone dormant or seen a much maligned series of new releases.

    hcazllewop posted first... prepare to be bozoed ya annoying little punk.


  • Is that from the original?  I never had a N64 but that seriously has to be the facility level from 007.  If that is included that is an awesome deal.


  • Very sweet!  Especially the 400 point credit.  I don't think I'll be getting the first two weeks though.  Perfect Dark eventually cause I'll have Final Fantasy XIII and the Dragon Age expansion to be playing that that point.


  • man can't wait for perfect dark, i can't even believe that is the cheapest of all of them. Perfect dark, from what i remember has Facility from 007 The temple from 007 and complex from 007. Of course, not the same idea no one would want to think they got the idea from golden eye pending legal issues lol.

  • Perfect Dark is probably my favorite FPS ever made. I hope it holds up today. (I know multiplayer will.)


  • Wait wait wait, hold up Tim, are you sure you didn't get Perfect Dark and the other 2 MS points mixed up?  I just don't see that happening.  Haha.


  • @ the dead space its actually 15 dollars


  • never mind i mix up the thier points system


  • Gouging my eyes out > Living in the video game past


  • Perfect Dark. Online.

    w00t.


  • i wish it was on psn...


  • 800 wow i was expecting 1200 for perfect dark.


  • I really want perfect dark but I do not have a 360, well at least I still have an N64 with a copy of perfect dark.


  • Probably just PD for moi.


  • Holycraphellzyeah! Perfect Dark for 800 points? Check, check and check.


  • What about the risk game :(


  • Maybe but I got plenty of regular gaming on my to-do list yet so I'm afraid the arcade stuff will have to wait.
