No Teen or Mature Games Allowed on Xbox Game Room

In order to avoid the lengthy ESRB rating process, Microsoft has gotten its new Game Room itself rated as E10+. While that means no more review submissions for Microsoft, it means that no games higher than E10+ can be on the Game Room. At first, this doesn't seem like a problem considering the Game Room is geared towards retro games, back from the days of yore when video game violence was but a fairy tale; however, on second thought, it means games like Street Fighter, Metal Slug, and Mortal Kombat are automatically nixed from the service.

Still, there are few games like those listed, and if you care enough about them, you probably already own them via the Xbox Live Arcade. So what do you think of this whole ordeal?

Microsoft Charging for Games You Already Bought

When Microsoft unveiled the Xbox 360 Home Game Room at this year's CES, an overwhelming 'meh' came out of gamers.  To make matters worse, if you've already bought one of the games in the Game Room via XBLA, you'll have to buy them again.

A Microsoft representative recently told Gameinformer that the company considers the Game Room titles different from their XBLA counterparts because they are the original versions and not "revamped" like those on XBLA.  The some-what good news?  They'll be cheaper, ranging anywhere from 240 to 400 MS Points.  Still, we don't see too many gamers buying games they already bought anytime soon, regardless if they're in vanilla form or not.

As much as I hate saying this: Fail.

More news from Microsoft's CES press conference. Microsoft has announced that Natal will be available this Holiday 2010. It's an "entirely new, yet completely natural way to play," said Microsoft's Robbie Bach. With games like Alan Wake (which will have DLC episodes after its release), Halo: Reach and the release of Project Natal, "2010 will be the biggest year in Xbox history," he added. Other big games coming to the Xbox 360 include Crackdown 2, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Mass Effect 2.

Game Room was also announced, which will be a "place to relive the glory days of arcade games," and over the next three years, it will see the release of "over 1000" retro titles. It will initially launch with over 30 retro classics from Konami, Atari, Activision, and others. Every week, a new set of Arcade games will be released on Game Room, and it will be available on both PC and Xbox 360 with universal Xbox Live Achievements and leaderboards. Similar to PSN's Home, XBL Avatars will be able to inhabit gamers' arcade rooms, which can be customized and upgraded. Game Room will carry a two-tiered price structure. Gamers can purchase a title for 240-400 MS Points or pay 40 MS Points and play the game once.

Also, this spring, the first Modern Warfare 2 content packs will be available exclusively first on Xbox Live. What will the DLC consist of? No word yet, hopefully more Spec Ops missions and likely more game modes for multiplayer.
