Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade online casual games service launches across Europe today (June 13th).
The service is available free to all current Xbox Live subscribers, and Microsoft is also bundling the launcher disk with all Live Starter Kits from today.
Already available in the US, Arcade offers a range of casual, parlour-style games covering a range of genres including card and board games, puzzle and trivia games and classic arcade-style games like Alien Sky and Marble Blast.
“Xbox Live Arcade is a great new way for Xbox Live members to play their favourite vintage favourites and broad appeal games,” commented Xbox senior director of platform and marketing Michel Cassius.
Current Live subscribers can obtain a launcher disk by calling 0800 587 1102.
