Hard Corps: Uprising Priced at 1200MS Points

As you may have heard, Microsoft is set to launch a new digital download-focused promotion with the Xbox Live Arcade "House Party" next month. Leading the charge is Konami's Hard Corps: Uprising, a title crafted by Guilty Gear and BlazBlue developer Arc System Works.

Konami revealed that when Hard Corps: Uprising launches on February 16, it will carry a price-tag of 1200MS Points ($15). The game is also slated for release on the PlayStation Network at some point; however, it has previously been noted that Microsoft requires a window of exclusivity for games released during heavily publicized XBLA-based promotions--specifically the Summer of Arcade.


It's unclear if titles released during the "House Party" promotion fall under the same "requirements" as Microsoft's Summer of Arcade. Shacknews has contacted Konami to find out when PlayStation 3 owners can expect to blast through Contra's "spiritual sequel."

Other titles coming to the Xbox Live Arcade during the "House Party" include Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil HD, Torchlight, the Xbox 360 Avatar-starring Full House Poker and PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz Live.
