Microsoft moves 'Xbox Originals' to 'Games on Demand' At the E3 Expo earlier this month, Microsoft announced that they will start an "on-demand" service for downloads of games for the Xbox 360 through Xbox Live.
The company has today re-branded its Xbox Originals service on Xbox.com, with all titles now featured as part of the Games on Demand service instead of the Originals service.

A few of the games include BioShock, Assassin's Creed, Crackdown, LEGO Star Wars and Sonic the Hedgehog.

"It's not going to be new games," added Shane Kim of MS. "We did it with Xbox Originals and now we're expanding that to Xbox 360 games for the first time.

"They're bigger and more complex and there's a whole bunch of business related issues that we have to work out there if we wanted to start going day-and-date with new releases."


The service goes live in two months with 30 games at launch.

Re-branded yet still cheaper to just buy a physical copy!
