An Overview of Games On Demand

Games On Demand is a new feature that is a brainchild of Microsoft that was launched into the market sometimes in 2009. This feature enables its customers to download unlimited Xbox 360 games at their convenience be it at their workplace during their free time or at home during their leisure time. Unlike other options such as buying a single game, this feature offers more convenience and choice. What’s more, shoppers are treated to a 24/7 access to their favorite games on their XBOX 360. As if that is not enough, there are additional titles now and then show that you can satisfy your craving for both the latest and older games.

The games, though, require a relatively huge space for installation, ranging between 4GB and 6GB. Therefore to enjoy the games, you need more drive space for downloads, switching and playing. However, you don’t need to panic. They offer their customers up to 60 GB Space Pack Live, but users must purchase it as a separate accessory to enjoy the games. This is an invaluable way to download and enjoy the games without having to worry about the drive space.

It’s worth noting that in case a customer runs out of disk space or their hard drive develops problems, they can still reload the games already bought. This because one they buy a game, the license will be linked to their Xbox LIVE account.

The download times for each game vary depending on the size of that particular game as well as the bandwidth you have. If you are using a high-bandwidth for your connection, downloading a single game takes between 2 and 3 hours on average. The game manuals may be printed, viewed or downloaded.

Customers can purchase Games On Demand using either their credit card or use Microsoft points.

Purchasing a game is simple. Simply log onto select a game of your choice and proceed to purchase.
