More On: Xbox Originals on Live
Looks like Microsoft is serious about the Xbox Originals program, as they have announced that Burnout 3: Takedown will be able to be downloaded on January 14th at 5:00 a.m. EST for 1,200 Microsoft points. Like the first batch of titles that hit last fall, there is nothing significant to this release that you couldn't get from a $5 used copy at you local game store. See the release after the jump for further details on the game:

 Xbox Originals on Xbox LIVE Marketplace brings you original Xbox games to play on your Xbox 360. Relive your favorites or find games you missed the first time around.

Burnout® 3: Takedown rewrites the rules of the road. Arcade racing is now driven by a new mantra: Aggressive Racing Required.
