Three digital downloads from Microsoft's 2009 Summer of Arcade promotion are coming to retail shelves as part of a single-disc bundle next month.

First spotted on Amazon and later confirmed by Microsoft, the three-pack will include Playdead's dark puzzle-platformer Limbo, Twisted Pixels' action-packed platform game Splosion Man and RedLynx's motorcycle-based challenge Trials HD.

The package will be available starting April 19 for a suggested $30 -- $10 less than the three downloadable titles currently go for when purchased separately -- and will also include 160 Microsoft points (worth $2) and a 48-hour trial membership for Xbox Live Gold.

Microsoft first released a retail bundle including six XBLA titles -- including Geometry Wars and Bejeweled 2 -- and three demos as part of Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Vol. 1 in 2006. Other retail compilations of XBLA games have been packaged with the Xbox 360 Arcade hardware and with a black Xbox 360 controller in the years since, but there has been no official Volume 2 for the Unplugged pack.

In 2009, Konami released two separate three-game retail bundles of classic games that are also available on Xbox Live Arcade. Popcap has also released two retail XBLA bundles, which together contain seven games previously available on the download service.

It would be nice if they made downloadable game bundles, downloadable. With a few interchangeable options that the flexibility of a downloadable option could provide, i would probably get this, but i already own Trials HD. Speaking of lofty wishes, it would be nice if xbla games were available to purchase on amazon or other online retailers at all.
