In other Hudson Entertainment News, Bomberman Live! is still a hit and is still getting DLC. Just announced in Bomb Up Pack 3 which include 10 new characters, 2 new levels, 1 new game mode, and 2 new leaderboards for good measure.
All this goodness will arrive December 26th so you won't have to pine for very long.
All the details can be found in the press release after the break.

At this point, it's just become ludicrous. First, it was Boom Boom Rocket. Then, Hexic 2. And now OXfire of XBLAddict is giving away two games at once: Spyglass Board Games and Bomberman Live!.
So get on over there (make a comment) and win some free stuff. If you're anything like me, your wallet is probably feeling some serious fatigue about now. So give it a break from the grind and get something for free!
Wednesdays are becoming less about new releases and more about extending the value of the games already out there. We got Tetris Splash today, but even that has a load of premium downloadable content right out of the gate. So let's do a full rundown of our weekly haul.
XBLA Game: Tetris Splash
DLC: Carcassonne, Soltrio Solitaire, Tetris Splash
Trailer: 3D Ultra Minigolf
All of that content for Tetris Splash sure makes it seem a bit dubious (especially considering it arrives alongside the game). Soltrio Solitaire keeps coming back to delivery more every two weeks -- why would anyone be surprised by this arrival? And finally, how does everyone feel about paying 300MSP for 7 tiles in Carcassonne?
Full details for each and every piece of content after the break.

Coming soon to a Bomberman Live! match near you: Destructoid's faithful mascot!
No word on when we'll be getting it, but it will arrive along side many other new costumes in the next DLC pack for Bomberman Live!. So, if being a grumpy robot doesn't suit you, try the punky girl or the pretty pink fairy. And sure, for the macho there's a new executioner outfit as well. You can dress up your Bomberman doll action-figure as hardcore as you, don't you worry.
Actual character model, after the break. Check Dtoid for ludicrously large versions of all the images you see here and much, much more.
[Update]: I'm dumb and can't read. Full details after the break but know this: 10 costumes, 2 levels, 1 mode, 2 leaderboards and all coming September 26th for 250MSP.

We've just received word that this week will be another to spin by -- Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will be released at the usual time this Wednesday. I anticipate the retro-standard price point of 400 MSP. And the xbox.com page backs me up on this.
SEGA continues adding to their SEGA Vintage Collection by giving us what many consider to be the best Sonic game ever (I think I'm in this camp). Do you still have love for good ol' 2D Sonic? Or did the load times on the retail 360 Sonic game sour you completely on the spunky hedgehog (whether in 2D or 3D)?
In addition to Sonic 2, we'll also be getting some new DLC for Bomberman Live! and Band of Bugs. No details yet on what we're getting but we'll let you know when we know.
E-mail after the break.

[Update]: Added a screenshot (click for high-res) which seems to show a massive amount of smoothing graphically. (For comparison, here's an original screen at MobyGames.) Any purists out there upset by this?
Apparently, I am so damn trigger happy with my posts I deprived you, fair readers, of the details of the Bomb-Up Pack 1 for Bomberman Live!. Mere hours after I posted this, Xbox 360 Fanboy acquired all the necessary details for the bomb-crazy among you.
With greatest apologies I bring you the quick and dirty version:
350 MSP 250 MSP gets you ten new characters (featuring Little Bomby Foo Foo and Rocky Bomboa), two new maps (High Stakes and Zeppelin), a new mode called Frag (I wonder what that is like?), and a new leaderboard (for Frag mode, I assume).
Anyone willing to get stuck with 50 extra points to buy this?
[Update]: CAGs rejoice. The DLC is actually 100 points cheaper than expected according to Siliconera.
Gamerscoreblog has just confirmed the arrival of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix this wednesday. It might just be the most confirmed game ever. Conspicuously absent from the latest post is any info on price or the inclusion of War World in this Wednesday's fun. Were we deceived? Hopefully we find out soon.
That's old news though. The interesting bit is this: Besides SPFIITHDR (and hopefully War World), XBLA will also see the release of two DLC packs this Wednesday. First, Bomberman Live! will be getting the Bomb-Up Pack 1. Second, Eets: Chowdown will also be getting some DLC. We already knew that though. No pricing details yet, nor any info on the specific contents of these packs.
Gotta love the advance notice though. Makes budgeting for this week that much easier (or harder as the case may be). Do you think Silver Creek with try to sneak another pack for Soltrio Solitaire in there just to avoid feeling left out?
[Update]: Chris Paladino of Gamerscoreblog has responded to concern about War World not making it this week with the following at the link below:
"War World is not release [sic] this week according to all of the internal folks I've asked...
Sometimes there are many bowling pins being juggled, and developers can get their signals crossed - which is why until you see the press release for the week - nothing is official. "
Looks like I might be breaking out the ol' strikeout tool...
At least they confirmed the price of SPFIITHDR will be 800 MSP.
Could it be? It appears that Major Nelson has come through for us two weeks in a row. Of course, things aren't as perfect as they seem. What you see below is the newly corrected list. When the list originally appeared, it had a surprise visitor: Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
Ever since that point speculation has run rampant. The most common theory seems to be this: SPFIITHDR appeared on PartnerNet and was "purchased" by so many people that it appeared on the list. Strange but true? We'll never know. So, let's just look (and read) below and focus on what we do know.

*WOC: Weeks on Charts
In case you missed it, over the weekend some minor details were confirmed about DLC for Bomberman Live!. Namely, new costumes and maps. The confirmation came from a Hudson Entertainment developer with the gamertag Cosmodelic. Now we know who to tar and feather if it takes too long for the DLC to arrive.
Lynchings aside, we still need the what, when, and how much. Anyone already tired of the maps that come standard?
