When I found out on Monday that Microsoft was releasing a crummy licensed game for 800 points I was a bit annoyed.  Apparently I wasn't as annoyed as Cyril who has posted a nice long article about how Microsoft has missed the boat with the 100th game for Xbox Live Arcade.  It's worth the read if you get a a chance as Cyril makes a lot of valid points.  Of course there's the issue of not having something ready or having it pass through certification but honestly giving gamers a licensed title to celebrate your 100th game is like giving your significant other power tools for a major anniversary, you can do it but it's pretty tacky.
