August's Live Arcade line-up

Puzzle Quest and friends!

Puzzle Quest, Space Giraffe and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix are among the summer releases Xbox Live Arcade fans can expect to be playing before the month is out.

That's because, not content with news of Track & Field's arrival on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow (they're not the only ones), Microsoft's spoken out about the rest of August's line-up.

Along with the three above, fans can expect Ecco the Dolphin, Hexic 2, War World, Geon: emotions and Streets of Rage 2.

Exact dates were left off, but Microsoft almost always launches Live Arcade games on Wednesdays, so expect them to start hammering away starting on the 15th.

What's more, with 22nd August set to coincide with the platform holder's Xbox press conference at Leipzig's Games Convention, we'd be surprised not to see a few go live then. In fact, we wouldn't be utterly surprised if there were special additions that night too - Microsoft often likes to spring them during its conferences, having enjoyed success doing so with X06 and E3 2007.

Which would you like to see first, readeroo?
