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.
