Microsoft explains XBLA delistings

Size limit gets significant raise.

Microsoft has reassured us we'll still be able to re-download delisted Live Arcade games, plus play them on and offline and climb the leaderboards.

The news comes after the Gamerscore blog told us that low-scoring, old, and badly-selling titles will soon be pruned from the service in order to "make it easier to find the games you really want".

This renewed focus on Live Arcade also brings with it an increased size limit, which rises from 150MB to 350MB. Microsoft has previously allowed exceptions to break the barrier, such as Capcom duo Bionic Commando Rearmed and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
