DOOM comes to Xbox Live Arcade

Yes you read that right, DOOM comes to Xbox Live Arcade! I can’t wait to try this out, I remember when Doom first came out, the only network we had at the time was the one at work, so a bunch of us would meet up there to try to kill each other. Time would just fly, and it would feel like we had only been there an hour when we had been there all day. The game will support the deathmatch, hooty hooo, and two to four player co-op.

Xbox Live Arcade made a surprise unveiling of one of the greatest games of the 3-D era: DOOM (id Software) is now available for download for 800 Microsoft points from Marketplace.

The game brings legendary DOOM mayhem to the next generation. For the first time ever, relive the classic demon-blasting fragfest in both single-player and two-to-four player co-operative and deathmatch modes over Xbox Live. Also a new, multititle relationship with Codemasters was announced, with the first title being the classic, fast-action soccer game, Sensible World of Soccer.

This title is only available to Xbox 360 owners with an Xbox Live Silver or Gold membership, through download from the Xbox Live Marketplace.
