Default Perfect Dark headed to Xbox Live

You would have thought Microsoft would tried to squeeze in every big announcement they possible could into yesterday's press conference, but at least one exciting tidbit has only just surfaced. Xbox Live's Major Nelson posted on Twitter that Perfect Dark will see the light of day on Xbox 360 and is headed to the Xbox Live Arcade this winter. A free Perfect Dark theme will be released on the Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow to celebrate.
This is extremely surprising when considering that the project was completely shot down due to the licensing issues. A listing for the game, along with other XBLA games, did surface in early May, but the game is now up and running at E3.
E3 2009 -- the game industry's most important convention this year -- is happening all this week! Check out E3.1UP.COM for news, previews, podcasts, videos, blogs, and more direct from the Los Angeles Convention Center.

I know a couple of folks who will flip out with joy over this. Good job Microsoft.

Now if they can get Goldeneye with Live multiplayer matching, doubt that will ever happen.

Granted, they need to update the controls.

As far as gameplay goes, Perfect Dark was better than Goldeneye. But I think people have more attachment to Goldeneye than Perfect Dark.

Apparently it's in 1080p and with a stable framerate unlike the original. If it's widescreen I may consider getting it.
