This sould be an XBLA game
This is a timeless game but I believe it should have been released via the XBLA service. I mean I'm still going to buy it though. It's Tetris!
Wow cuttie_kittie - I can't wait for the 360 to come out with this game. The graphics of the falling blocks should be amazing. Maybe they will have textures and what not... What do you think?? Come on, it's blocks, how much more can you ask for?? It doesn't matter what the graphics are like - It's the game play and the fact that it's addictive. Don't ask me why. I personally love Tetris and can play for hours on end. Alright, maybe not that long. I do agree that they should just release it on the Marketplace, but Microsoft wants to make money from the game because they know it's a big hit already. I have yet to see a game on Marketplace for more than 1,200 points. Which very roughly equals $12 in actual dollar value. A 1,600 point card is about $20. Do the math yourself. Point is - nobody would get it on Marketplace if they see how my points it would cost them.
Yo, so why couldn’t they make this on Xbox arcade? It’s not a big game, and it would sell for more is people didn't need to get off there couch to buy this game, but go Tetris, there still going strong!
This will rock, i've been waiting for a tetris game for my 360 since I bought it a year ago. I can't wait.
I'm getting it
I am planing on puchasing this and for a few reasons 1) I don't have a gameboy, or any other system for that matter 2) I like Tetris, as does my fiancee. This is a great couples game 3) It will add more to my achievement score I would like to see what variants of tetris they have now. I know this is not GoW, or Halo 3 for that matter, but it is a great leasure game to just sit back and relax. I will enjoy it.
Why another one?
How many different ways can they come out with a game that drops pieces into a line? I am sure there are new game types and all that, but come on people, the premise is the exact same as it always has been and at some point they need to just let it go. Don't waste $30 on a game that is the same as on the ORIGINAL Gameboy.
Could be the best Tetris yet! Maybe.
All 360 games are in HD. That is the point. This will be the bets-looking Tetris game so far. And it's fine if you like Lumines, but Tetris got here first and is way more popular. Since none of you have played this version and no info is available as of this writing, your criticisms are useless.
Just play it on Tetris on your DS.
How many times are we going to see this game repacked? As for the HD. Whats the point? It isn't like this game is going to be a million times better, because they give the blocks HD quality. Agree this should be a Live Arcade release instead of a full game.
Honestly i mean yes, it is quite ridiculous that there is ANOTHER tetris game coming out. But hasn't there been a million other WWII games? Or GTA rip offs? Come on! This game your going to be able to play online, against others, thats going to be sweet i say.
I've been waiting
I am personally excited about the release of a Tetris on the Xbox 360 because the game for the original Xbox is hard to come by. I just hope that it lives up to its name of evolution considering the HD graphics that they have to play with.
