I applaud Microsoft for keeping games coming post-launch.

Granted, they're all "XBLA" tier games, but I appreciate seeing a trickle of support. I purchased both Max and Peggle 2 and I was going to purchase the Halo twin-stick shooter until I read about its IAP.

I hope this continues at least until we start seeing new retail games trickle out in March.

um, isn't it a given that when you buy a new console that games are *supposed* to be released post-launch? No console in the history of... ever has been released with a launch line up with zero games afterwards

A lot of times there are droughts where no games are released for months, especially just after a console launches.

Agreed. Even though they are XBLA caliber games, they each are great and well worth the $5-$20. Max is such a beautiful and fun puzzle/platformer, something the whole family enjoys. Peggle 2 is addictive, I 100%ed it and am eagerly awaiting DLC. Halo SA is a fun dual stick shooter that was easily worth $5 since I already had it on my tablet. Can't wait to see what Jan brings.

Spoken like somebody who just bought their first console at launch ...

I'm hoping that we see some of Capy's games occupy the July slot. I know nothing about Below, but I'm stoked for it.

I don't know what else there is. The only games of this sort that they really teased were Peggle, Max, Halo, and Below.

I hope they have some tricks up their sleeve.
