Microsoft has announced the Xbox Live games-on-demand launch line-up, which rolls out this coming Tuesday, 11th August.

Of the 21 titles, a handful are synonymous with the new service: Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect and Oblivion, for example.

Others, however, are fresh, such as Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis, Fight Night Round 3, SEGA Rally, Burnout Paradise and Viva Piñata 2.

Similarly, some we had expected for launch, like Crackdown and BioShock, are now nowhere to be seen.

The Xbox Live games-on-demand channel allows full games to be bought direct using credit cards, with no real-money-to-Microsoft-Points faffing in-between. Exactly how much those games will cost, mind you, is still under wraps - "comparable" to retail is all we know so far.

Here's the launch line-up in full:

  • Assassin's Creed
  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted
  • Burnout Paradise
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • Call of Duty 2
  • Prey
  • Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis
  • Fight Night Round 3
  • SEGA Rally
  • Kameo: Elements of Power
  • Test Drive: Unlimited
  • LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas
  • Mass Effect
  • Tomb Raider: Legend
  • Meet The Robinsons
  • Viva Piñata
  • MX vs. ATV Untamed
  • Viva Piñata 2: Trouble in Paradise
  • Need for Speed Carbon
