Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne Headed to Xbox 360 Live

First zombies, now Euro-style board games. The Xbox 360 moves one step closer towards my household. According to this post at, Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne will be offered on Microsoft’s Xbox Live Internet service. Other, as-yet-unnamed European games will be making their way onto Microsoft’s console gaming platform. There is no word on about the pricing structure of games, or when they will be available for download. 1up seems to think by the year’s end.

  1. Hey, that’s cool!

    I take it “Live Internet” would probably need better than my dialup to work?

    Yes — the games are downloaded, and would take a very long time to do so on dialup.

    I’m not sure if there is an explicit check for broadband by the Live! service. Theoretically you could share a dialup connection across a network and utilize the Xbox’s built-in ethernet port, but regardless, dialup is going to be a little problematic for procuring the game in the first place.

    OMG, I’m so far impressed by “LIVE” (I’m a new 360 father). This will rock.
