Banjo XBLA and CoD content available on [Updated]

Saturday, 22nd November 2008 21:05 GMT By Mike


The Rare remake of Banjo’s first outing is available to download from this page on right now, a full six days before it’s scheduled release next Wednesday.

The game costs 1200 MS Points and is 48Mb in size.

Also, the The M1A1 Carbine Rifle that was free for Call of Duty: World at War pre-orders can be downloaded from, here, in fact.

Better get in there quick before someone realises, though.

Thanks, Kotaku.

Update: Well that didn’t last long did it? The web page with the CoD content, though still listed as “Free” through the above link, now asks for a total of 99999 MS Points when you actually try and download it. Banjo, however, is still available early. Thanks, Alpha Male Stu.

Update 2: If you would have blinked, you would have missed it. Microsoft’s stealth ninjas have acted swiftly, and now Banjo XBLA costs 99999 MS Points too. Oh well, it’s available from Wednesday. Stop moaning.

    There’s a whole list of them on Neogaf, hardly any of them work. Of all the ones i tried, a damn golden lancer for Gears 2 was all i got haha

    Haven’t tried Banjo…but it costs money, so i imagine MS will let that one work! Tried both COD5 codes for day one or collectors edition advantage and got nothing!

    There’s the ‘gaf link.

    Banjo is also not out until 3rd Dec, where MS in a stunning move decided that the best way to compensate customers it had pissed off was to piss off a load more.
