After noting that C&C 3′ Commander’s Challenge pack weighed in at a whopping 2GB, IGN asked Microsoft about Xbox Live Arcade games’ recent growth spurt.
The Xbox creator responded by saying that 2GB is the “technical limit” of the current system behind XBLA games. Conversely, the Games on Demand section of Xbox Live uses a different system, so it can handle bigger files.
So now you know.

MTV Multiplayer got a chance to speak with Chair Entertainment about its upcoming Xbox Live Arcade side-scroller Shadow Complex. According to Chair co-founder Donald Mustard, his company’s game will be beatable in under two hours!
This, of course, conflicts with prior reports, which stated that running the game’s gauntlet would take anywhere from 10-15 hours. However, that’s also correct. As it turns out, Chair is including “sequence breaks” in its game. A sort of gaming artifact, sequence breaks allow players of games like Metroid to slip past sections of a game and acquire certain items before they’re supposed to.
Granted, sequence breaks are normally exploits discovered by players, but Chair claims it’s included the possibility of sequence breaks in the development of its game. Thus, the developer hopes Shadow Complex becomes the talk of the speed running town, and has even included an achievement for players who complete the game in under two hours.
Back in our day, we didn’t get any rashin-frashin points for speed runs, and we liked it. Kids these days.
