According to this GameScoreBlog post, Portal: Still Alive will release for XBLA next week. It’s Portal, but with extra bits.

    Interestingly enough… this game is over 600mb, which kinda blows the previous XBLA size limit out of the water.

    I can see why they are doing this but would be nice if they released the maps as an add on. I’ve already paid for the original game.

    1200 points is about a tenner, right? Seems a bit pricey when you can get the full Orange box for not much more than that.

    Blerk: Yeah, but given Portal is $19.99 on Steam they were never going to undercut themselves.

    The XBLA ‘size limit’ thing is completely pointless anyway, I don’t know why they keep trying to enforce it. They up the limit every time some high profile game breaks it, and Xbox Originals are much bigger anyway.

    Just ditch the damn thing and have done with it. You’re giving Arcade owners free storage anyway. :-D

    Problem is, they’ve now got a game that anyone without a HDD can’t use.

    I never understood why the memory cards are so small. You can get 4gb USB drives for £10 now yet MS still insist on having a 64MB memory card on sale and a 512mb card as their max size. Utterly retarded.

    If they dropped the core and the 20gb(13 usable gb’s) they wouldn’t need size limits.

    Sort of. There’s millions of those machines out there already so they can’t just ignore their existence.

    Live is getting some really good stuff recently.

    I’m playing splinter cell chaos theory at the moment which I downloaded.

    Quality is excellent.

    Will it get to the stage soon where we will be downloading 360 games?
