Banjo XBLA and CoD content available on [Updated]

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.
