The Xbox Live Arcade is getting a big update as a trio of games were added to the download service this morning.
The re-release of the six-player X-Men Arcade game from the early 90s is going to be a highlight for many gamers. Up until this week’s PSN/XBLA release, the game had never before been released on a home console.
Also available this week is the long-awaited Quake Arena Arcade from id Software and The Path of Go.
