Surely you saw the post on this yesterday, but just in case you didn’t or should you need reminded – Dead Space and DiRT hit Microsoft’s Games on Demand service today for Xbox 360.
Granted, you can probably find the games cheaper than the £19.99/$29.99 price tags, but maybe you’re just lazy and don’t wanna drive to the shops, or maybe you are under house arrest with an ankle bracelet that shocks you when you step out the door.
Whatever your situation, both are at your disposal should the need strike you.

Why has Microsoft Australia priced Mass Effect 6,000 MSP? Kotaku asked. Here’s the response:
No one retailer has the lowest pricing for every product, and our program is about giving people 24 x 7 convenience and selection when shopping for Xbox 360 games.
We’re incredibly excited about what Games on Demand means for digital distribution, and will continue to evaluate and evolve the service to meet market and consumer demands.
And there you have it. You can be thankful you’re paying $100 for an old RPG, Australians. At least you don’t have to leave the house.

Plucky Gowans007 over at NeoGAF‘s only gone and rounded up prices for every single Games on Demand title by region. It’s an enlightening read.

Hit the link for the full thing. It’s quite mental. By that, we mean “really expensive”.
