Oblivion Shivering Isles Preview





Weighing in at 1.5 gigabytes, Shivering Isles will introduce an entire new plane of Oblivion, roughly a quarter of the size of the original game. The Expansion, due for download for the xbox 360 in March, will feature new settlements, characters, quests, a new storyline, and a promised 30 hours of gameplay.

Update!! Shivering Isles Review

No information as yet on the cost of the expansion, rumour on gamerhelp.com suggests

$29.99 (2,400 mp) or €22, (1,834 mp)*

though using a large dollop of innocence. . . . let's see 25% size of original, plus a discount for luck, leaves me with (counts on fingers....)

$24 (1,920 mp) €17.99 (1,500mp) *

With Oblivion sales currently topping three million units, Bethesda wouldn't rip us off would they?

*(note on microsoft points, Each region is billed for Microsoft points in their own local currency. The pricing however does not change with the current exchange rates, meaning some regions pay more for the same amount of points than others. see wikipedia)

Is it just me or does the Xbox360 sound more and more like some PC unit.

That makes me sad...
