Console-maker announces plans for downloadable versions of Xbox 360 titles, user ratings also in the works.

A range of new Xbox Live services were announced during the Microsoft press conference this morning, including deals with, Facebook, Twitter, and UK TV broadcaster Sky. At an invite-only "bloggers luncheon" immediately following the press conference, Xbox Live general manager Marc Whitten expanded on new developments for Xbox Live, and followed this up in an open letter to Xbox Live members on Microsoft's developer network today.

The most important new feature not revealed during the press conference is the new Games on Demand feature, which will allow Xbox 360 owners to purchase and download full Xbox 360 games directly to their hard drive. Purchasers will be given the option to purchase games using a credit or debit card, rather than by purchasing Microsoft points.

According to Whitten, "the Games on Demand channel will launch with a library more than 30 great games, from classic hits like Mass Effect, BioShock and Assassin's Creed, to family favourites like LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga and Sonic the Hedgehog." Furthermore, "you'll have access to a wide variety of great games, downloadable in only a few hours and at the touch of a button. We've also added the option to purchase Games on Demand directly with your credit or debit card."

Whitten also announced a range of new features for New Xbox Experience's avatars, including "avatar items as awards when playing games." Microsoft and third-party publishers will be releasing a range of premium clothing and interactive props for avatars, and revealed a costume based on Halo 3: ODST's Shock Troopers as an example.

Lastly, user ratings will be coming to Xbox Live Marketplace. A five-star rating system will allow users to rate games and game add-ons, and sort games by user rating.

Yep looks great. I like how MS is really doing all they can to show how LIVE is totally worth what we pay.

I find it easy to pay for live now, when I first got it I doubted myself asking myself if I should pay for online when I got a PS3 but it was worth it.

Yea, I think Microsoft is going to keep updating live for the 360s instead of changing the system every 5 years, smart move.
