The Rare remake of Banjo’s first outing is available to download from this page on Xbox.com 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 Xbox.com, here, in fact.
Better get in there quick before someone realises, though.
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.

Microsoft has just slapped an official date on Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts and said that those who pre-order the game will get a special code to play Banjo XBLA before everyone else.
The date is November 14. But before you rush out to any old games shop to place your pre-order, be warned that only “select retailers” will get the codes.
As to who the select few are, we’ve no idea. We’re also in the dark as to whether Europe is included in the pre-order love or not.
Banjo XBLA will be released two after Nuts & Bolts if you can’t find a retailer near you.
Update: The game will cost a cut-price $40 too, apparently. No European price yet. Thanks, captaineurogamer.
