Xbox Live Marketplace April 2011 Release Schedule

by Rainier on March 30, 2011 @ 5:45 a.m. PDT

Xbox 360 is a video game and entertainment system that is home to video games, an on-demand library of movies and TV shows connected to the television. The Xbox 360 blends its content with the largest online social network of 20 million members on Xbox Live to create an entertainment experience that can be shared at home or across the globe.

On 6 April, seek retribution as you slash your way through 13 unique campaign levels as The Dishwasher or Yuki in “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile,” available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. Created by award-winning indie developer James Silva, “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile” is the stylistic action platform sequel to 2009’s “Dead Samurai.” The exclusive Xbox LIVE Arcade title features solo and co-op campaigns, 50 intense arcade challenges, an almost endless Dish Challenge, and now for the first time, the combo-fuelled action will be playable in 3D.

Three award-winning downloadable games, now available on one disc

Available on retail shelves in the UK on 13 May for just £19.99, consumers can purchase three critically acclaimed Xbox LIVE Arcade exclusives “LIMBO” (Playdead/Microsoft Game Studios), “Trials HD” (RedLynx, Ltd./Microsoft Game Studios) and “’Splosion Man” (Twisted Pixel Games/Microsoft Game Studios) on one disc along with 160 Microsoft Points and a 48-hour trial Xbox LIVE Gold membership. Experience what fans from around the world have been raving about as you defy gravity in the big air thrills of “Trials HD,” solve the mysterious world of “LIMBO,” and become an uncontainable force in “‘Splosion Man.”

Kit out your Console

Xbox 360 launches Kit out your Console, one of the biggest sales events of the year for authentic Xbox 360 accessories. This April, get all our official Xbox 360® accessories for amazing prices at select retailers! Starting now through to end of April, add even more excitement and convenience to the way you connect, play games and experience entertainment with friends and family!

Dress the Royal Bride and Groom!

From today, Xbox LIVE members will be able to take part in a light-hearted poll entitled ‘Dress the Royal Bride and Groom’ in which they will be able to vote on a selection of wedding outfits for the Royal Couple. Accessible through a slate on the dash until April 1st, we are encouraging both free and Gold LIVE subscribers in the UK to pick from four very different dress options. Needless to say, the end result will have no bearing on the actual Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton!

We look forward to revealing the results of this poll next week. Don’t forget to cast your own vote for your favourite royal get-up!
