Puzzle Arcade Heading to XBLA Next Week

It has just been announced that Puzzle Arcade will be making its way to the XBLA next week on Wednesday 24th December how about that fro a Christmas present.

The XBLA title will come attached with a 800 MS point price tag.

Puzzle Arcade also presents multiplayer fun with 4 player offline co-op as well as support for 4 player online co-op via Xbox live, so up to 4 people can work on the same puzzle either together or against each other which will probably lead to many a frantic scrabble for pieces. There are also leaderboards so you can track your puzzling abilities against the rest of the world.

Who knows maybe translating a jigsaw puzzle into a video game will work and might be the next big thing....then again it might not.
