Microsoft have celebrated gaming with "House Party", which was followed by "Summer of Arcade", but what follows this? Well, "Arcade NEXT", does. You're sitting there thinking "yeah, so what, Arcade NEXT", well did you know it includes Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition? Yeah, didn't think so!

 

 

The promotion starts on April 18 with Trials Evolution, April 25 brings Bloodforge, May 2 gives us Fable Heroes and then Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition drops on May 9. Minecraft will set you back 1600 Microsoft Points, Fable Heroes will set you back 800, while the rest are 1200 each ($15). All of them come with the new 400 Gamerscore ceiling.

You know what this does? Fuel rumors of the next-generation Xbox being called Xbox NEXT. It would truly make sense, wouldn't it? Arcade NEXT, in caps... Xbox NEXT in caps... I can see it now. The dots are being connected, Microsoft.
