Now that all three consoles are competing in the online market, regular news about the three systems is beginning to be regularly released, as Virtual Console tries to top Xbox Live which in turn tries to overshadow e-Distribution. Sony's online offering is still being finalized now that the console is on the market, and limits on the system
are still being decided upon. 500 MB is apparently going to be the cap for downloadable content via the service (much larger than Live's 50 MB limit). The company has also confirmed they'll be offering new version of retro games
, to compete directly with Microsoft's service. Speaking of which, Double Dragon will be joining the other classic games
on Xbox Live sometime in the future. This week's update was a patch for Texas Hold Em'
, while the week before saw the much-anticipated (and well reviewed) Small Arms
released to fans. Related to Microsoft's service, the much rumoured Xbox Live Arcade joystick
was formally announced by MadCatz this week. Not to be left out, Nintendo's Virtual Console grew by three titles
this week; gamers can now download Super Star Soldier
, Golden Axe
, and Genesis classic Ecco the Dolphin
. Like Microsoft, Nintendo has plans to release new content every week
for the forseeable future.
