Microsoft roll out 80s classics

Frogger has leaped onto Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade as the first of five 80s classics targetted at hardcore gamers.

Every Wednesday for the next five weeks the service will gain a new game, including retro classics from years gone by priced between $5 and $15 each. The move comes in response to the surprising success of the Arcade service, with Microsoft managing to convert 21.7% of free trial downloads into paying customers.

Currently only 20 games are available via the Arcade service, though Microsoft has said it hopes to have around 50 up for download by the end of the year.
