Default And the BIG XBox announcement is.......

For those of you who have been chomping at the bit to find out what XBox's big "mind blowing" announcement tahtthey've been building up to for some time: well it's here:

new pacman mazes.

Yup, that's it.

Oh well- who doesn't love PacMan- last I checked I was still the resident champ around these parts, so you'd think I'd be more excited, eh?

Pac-Man Championship Edition for Xbox 360 is the big news

That major Xbox announcement that was coming today? Nope, it wasn't the Xbox 720, but rather Pac-Man Championship Edition, exclusively for the Xbox 360. Ostensibly announced today at the Pac-Man championships in New York City, this variation of the pellet-munching classic promises to make "video game history." How's it plan on doing that?

Available tomorrow, June 6, 2007, for the asking price of 800 Microsoft Points ($10), Pac-Man: CE will be the same classic 2D Pac-Man gameplay with shiny new HD graphics, will contain "first new Pac-Man mazes in more than 26 years," and sport new widescreen mazes with wide walls in the Championship mode. There are several additional modes for the competitive Pac-Man gamer, and the requisite leaderboards, achievements, and gamerscore points. While we may quarrel with the hyperbole of the
announcement we would like to take the opportunity to salute the Pac-Nauts chomping it out in NYC right now.
