As the Summer Of Arcade on Xbox LIVE approaches its end, we have already had some big Arcade game releases. There are two more titles to come though. Today sees the release of Fruit Ninja Kinect – a Kinect-enabled version of the Halfbrick touch-screen phenomenon, which sees gamers use their own limbs to slice through fruit as it flies at them. Expect to see a GodisaGeek review of that title soon. Following that will be Toy Soldiers: Cold War, the sequel to the popular Toy Soldiers Arcade title. Also, Microsoft have a raft of items at sale prices.
