Kicking off with 'Frogger', fans of the Konami classic can download
the game that first hit arcades in 1981 and once again be able to

Achievements along the way. There's no better way to celebrate the
25th anniversary of Frogger and the launch of Xbox Live Arcade
Wednesdays than downloading this latest title from the Xbox Live
Arcade game portfolio.
Xbox Live Arcade's 'Frogger' has been enhanced and reinvigorated for
the Xbox 360 and features new, enhanced artwork that matches and
compliments the original style. In addition the game's audio,

Of course, a line-up of retro classics wouldn't be complete without
perhaps the most classic title of them all, 'Pac-Man,' the
fruit-eating maze game that changed the face of gaming upon its
release in 1980. The Xbox Live Arcade version, which comes out on
August 9, takes the famous franchise to the next-generation. With
multiplayer over Xbox Live and tons of cool Achievements, 'Pac-Man'
stays true to the original while powering-up to next-gen standards.

these classic game titles, Xbox Live celebrated the 80s with the
second Xbox Live Gold Experience event last night in San Francisco
for its community members and is now helping other Xbox gamers do the
same. Xbox 360 gamers that are interested in throwing their own 80s

twists on the old classic faves."
