A New Way To Arcade

Starting next week there will be a new way for Xbox 360 users to browse the 250-some Xbox Live Arcade games offered through Microsoft’s console.

“It was starting to get cumbersome,” Microsoft producer Justin Robey told Kotaku today. “Destination Arcade is an a opportunity to find games better instead of having to browse through a big list.”


The Destination Arcade is designed to offer some of the things physical games enjoy, such as the ability for you to ” look at games your friends have played” or “have that guy behind the counter who can say what games are like the ones you like.”

The way this works is through the better filtering options in Destination Arcade and an extra content-rating system. Users of Destination Arcade will be able to sort games by developer, rating or price, and also check a tab for a list of the games that are on sale. They’ll also be able to “like” games similarly to the way you can thumbs-up something on Facebook. Destination Arcade will keep track of those likes and let you see a display of which games your friends like the most. Another piece of the app will look at which games you like and find ones that are similar and worth recommending.
