All Articles: Far Cry Classic
Lightning Returns in this week’s Xbox Live Game Store update in the aptly named Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The Xbox 360 JRPG is available to download now for $59.99.
Also available this week for the Xbox 360 is the return of another classic character, the… um, er… main character of Crytek’s Far Cry. Sorry, I have no idea what his name is, strong characterization is not why Far Cry is well known or why gamers will be interested to know that the game is now available for the Xbox 360 (through the Xbox Live Arcade) as Far Cry Classic. It’s been priced at $9.99.
Finally this week is the official release of World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition. The free-to-play war simulator has exited its beta period and is ready for the Xbox Live community at large (well, the ones who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold) to give it a spin.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

There’s more information on all of these games, as well as a few additional PS3 and Vita games, after the break. And a full breakdown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
