Tetris Evolution gets skinned


Today, new Tetris Evolution content went up on the Marketplace with new backgrounds and skins for you to enjoy. Four new background sets are available for 100 Microsoft points each including a soothing waterfall and some explosive fireworks. Also released were four new Tetris skins each costing 80 Microsoft points and include bugs, flowers and some sort of blue Tahiti skin which sounds like an alcoholic drink. If Tetris Evolution is becoming a dull eye sore maybe a visual update will do the job to get you back in the game. But it'll cost you.

2. The game already has useless backgrounds and videos. Why would I buy more?

3. Adam - it's out today in the UK, and it's only £19.99. Picked up a copy today and it's great - well it's Tetris, you pretty much know what to expect. Shame the menus feel like they were put together by a five year old.

5. @Viridium, that's the beauty of xbox live, no one's forcing you to buy them, and since they're just skins, it's not like it'll even limit your matching capabilities.

For those of us that play a lot of Tetris though, a couple new background themes are welcome indeed.

6. I think some people are just offended that someone would want to make money for doing something other than sitting on their ass.

7. "The game already has useless backgrounds and videos. Why would I buy more?"

Some sucker out there will. I bet a couple thousand people already plunked down MPs for the Gears of War COG Tag strategy videos.

The price isn't that horrible. But as a whole it seems to me they should price downloads by how much actual work the developer did to make the content. These publishers (more importantly: Microsoft) shouldn't be allowed to set prices that result in millions of dollars in profit for something an employee farted out in Photoshop during their lunchbreak.
