Gaming News from E3: Live from the Show

Full Games Coming to Xbox Live DLC

We just got the word from Sid Shuman, one of GamePro's pairs of eyes at E3, that Microsoft will be introducing full downloadable games from Xbox Live starting in August. By simply using your credit card and bypassing the whole Microsoft Points net, you'll be able to grab titles like Bioshock, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and Civilization Revolution digitally.
