Or roughly translated (according to this leaked Microsoft article on Joystiq), you'll be getting one Live Arcade game a week for the next 5 weeks, starting tomorrow:

July 12 Frogger
July 19 Cloning Clyde
July 26 Galaga
August 2 Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting
August 9 Pac-Man

About time they put a release date down for Street Fighter 2.

Galaga - hells yeah
SFIIHF - 400 points or bust!

I tried out Frogger, and it didn't last 10 minutes on my 360.

Why? The screen is WAY too small.

Yeah, I do realize that my TV is horizontal and all, but isn't there something they could've done to make it just slightly bigger?

Downloaded and played Frogger a bit this morning.  Wasn't too bad, but made me realize how you still die if you barely touch the area of a car.

Found this on the XBox forums.  I am at work and can not currently test:

Go to options, WHEN PLAYING ,Adjust screen.

Did you know that George Costanza's score is higher than the all-time record score for Frogger?

By several orders of magnitude smile  I realized I had far too much video game trivia in my head when watching that episode and thinking "there is no *way* that screen is actually from a Frogger machine" - the scores were way too high.  And Frogger doesn't record high score initials anyway.

The music on the XBL version of Frogger isn't the same as the arcade game either frown  They changed it for some reason.

While playing, hit pause, go to Options, change it from Enhanced to Original.  Music, Sounds, and Graphics will all become original.

It is actually easier to play the non-enhanced original version.

I did that - the music is still different.  It's more "original" sounding, but the tunes are not the same.

Apparently Microsoft is willing to buy you a pizza and give you some free Marketplace points if you throw an Arcade party and take pictures of the craziness.
