Service brings classic and original content to Xbox Live users via download.
Microsoft launched its Xbox Live Arcade service today. The service brings retro and original games to Xbox Live users sans discs and packaging. Subscribers can download a select group of titles over Xbox Live and have the charge billed directly to their Xbox Live account. The titles will range from $9.99 for basic games to $19.99 for "fully features titles." Gamers looking to use the service will need to get their hands on a launch CD, available from Microsoft for a $4.99 shipping and handling fee.
