Nelson brings word that Shaun White Snowboarding and Command & Conquer 3 have now been added to 360′s Games on Demand service.
There’s no pricing through there as it varies by region. Looks as though you can’t get C&C3 in the US, for some reason. Take that, Americans.

According to this BrandWeek piece, Ubisoft has spent $10 million buying all the US ad space in the first two episodes of the next season of South Park, beginning October 8.
The first episode will feature three separate two-minute spots for its flagship Shaun White Snowboarding, Prince of Persia and Farcry 2 titles. The second episode will feature only ads for Shaun White Snowboarding.
“It’s the first time they are going to see the game, so we wanted to give them a nice grasp of what it looks like,” said Ubisoft marketing boss Danny Ruiz.
“This is a better alternative to running a bunch of 30-second ads that piss people off because they’ve seen them so many times.”

In an exclusive interview with videogaming247, Shaun White Snowboarding community development manager Clarence Lim said that developing the Wii version was all about exploiting the features of the console rather than seeing it as an obstacle.
“I wouldn’t say they are challenges, but more like opportunities,” he said.
“Our very talented development teams have taken the time to really understand intuitive controls to create rewarding experiences that are optimized for each platform.”
“For example, we’ve built the Wii version from ground up with the Balance Board in mind, the Xbox 360 has Achievements, and PlayStation 3 enables Sixaxis control and Trophies.”
Look out for our full chat with Clarence soon.

Whilst talking exclusively to videogaming 247, Shaun White Snowboarding comm dev man Clarence Lim explained just how using the Balance Board is going to work, saying that first and foremost it just “feels right.”
“You stand either regular or goofy (with the Balance Board facing either left or right) and shift your weight to ride,” he explained.
“You jump by doing a little hop. Tricks respond to a combination of the A and B buttons (grabs) on the Wii controller and how you shift your weight on the Balance Board. The game is also intuitive and accessible with just the Wii controller. It’s as simple or complex as you make it, and the response is fantastic.”
Sounds good to us. Full interview with Clarence coming soon.
