Sensible World Of Soccer will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade later this summer, Codemasters confirmed to Eurogamer today, and you'll be asked to pay 800 Microsoft points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.30) for the privilege of taking it home. So to speak.

SWOS - the 96/97 vintage, I'm told - has had us cooing appreciatively on the private developer-network version of Xbox Live Arcade recently, and its launch on Xbox will be followed by a PC release later in the year.

In what's become XBLA fashion, it's got a classic mode with old-days graphics as well as a spruced up modern equivalent, and we were impressed in particular with "how much the enhanced version looks like the game you have in your mind's eye".

But enough summary - if you wanted to read our first impressions and brief Q&A with Sensi developer Jon Hare, you would.
