Xbox LIVE Marketplace Is Now Xbox Games Store

Not only has the Microsoft Points vanished into thin air as one of the worst pricing solutions that just could not be carried over into the new generation Xbox LIVE, but now the Xbox LIVE Marketplace has walked off ‘n’ all…

Now simply known as the Xbox Games Store Microsoft had this to say to Joystiq on the matter:

That’s right, [Xbox Live Marketplace] is now called the Xbox Games Store, and will sit alongside the Xbox Music Store and Xbox Video Store. This is to make it easier for consumers to find content both on Xbox 360 today and Xbox One when it launches in November.

Although we haven’t perused our beady little eyes over the dashboard yet, nothing else out of the ordinary has been tidied up for a pre-Xbox-One launch. Expect us to refer to almost everything now as being on the Xbox Games Store!

Crysis 3 – Lost Island Multiplayer DLC Out Next Week

EA are releasing a new multiplayer DLC package for Crysis 3 next week – grab your passports and get ready to suit up again outside of the New York City Liberty Dome, as you hunt for Rebel forces along the West Pacific in Crysis 3: The Lost Island multiplayer DLC pack. Showcasing four new breath-taking maps two additional multiplayer modes, Frenzy and Possession, and deadly new weapons.

In Crysis 3: The Lost Island, traces of a mysterious alien presence have been discovered on a small island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan. Rebel forces have been dispatched to destroy this unknown extraterrestrial entity before an elite CELL team has the chance to obtain it… by any means necessary.

ThisisXbox.com rated Crysis 3, 7/10 in our review:

Crysis 3 is a pretty solid and decent shooter, but I think the expectations that a gamer might have for this to be something really gripping and highly out of this world is going to lead to a lot of let-downs. This game is at best just something pretty average as a solo experience, but the online options and gameplay features in matchmaking is where Crysis 3 saves itself from an overall total let down.

Crysis 3: The Lost Island Multiplayer DLC will be available from June 4th for 1200 Microsoft points.
