The lights are on
Sometimes perusing the plethora of games in XBLA is messy. If you want to see everything you must search alphabetically, and even they you’re just reading game titles. What if I told you Microsoft is going to make it easier for you to find games your friends like, games that match what you like, and deals on games you might like? Enter Destination Arcade, Xbox’s new, more convenient way to peruse downloadable games. This new, free app has a superior filtering system which can sort games by developer, price, user rating, etc. Xbox Live users can also rate games with their stamp of approval, allowing their buddies to know what’s great. What's even better is that it's coming next week.Creating a navigable experience for the Xbox Live Marketplace has been an uphill climb for Microsoft. First came the Xbox Blades, then the New Xbox Experience, and now Destination Arcade. Will the third time be the charm?
