Finally! On DEC 15th quake 3 arena will be available to d/l.


Quake Arena Arcade has been batted around for more than three years now, but it looks as though it's finally getting a release. The game will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade next week, December 15.


The game will support 16 players online in six different gameplay modes, including classics like deathmatch, capture the flag, and harvester. There are also 30 old-school maps, a dozen XBLA exclusive arenas, and a new single-player campaign, according to id.



pure awesomeness!!!!

I used to love this game back in the day playing on my Mac against a bunch of bots......


"Three frags left"


"You have taken the lead"


That voice yelling those things out was awesome to say the least, made it very intense. Is it the exact same game that was on Mac/PC, Quake 3 Arena???

Nice. I'll look forward to this one. Maybe the Live game I've been most excited about.


Thanks for posting.

When I played this game on the dreamcast I had a " madcatz panther controller" Basically a flightstick with a trackball. It was a very deadly controller for FPS games...sure wish I could purchase one again. I'm alot better at UT and quake than I am at COD games so hopefully I can rack up some kills. Cant wait to play some CTF!

I've been playing QuakeLive again lately. Q3 is one of the best FPS' ever made.


However, this game must play COMPLETELY differently on a gamepad. I will have mad respect for anyone with the gamepad skills to dominate in a console version of Q3.

Quake? On a Pad? No thanks......the Quake and UT games are twitch shooters, playing with a pad will never work :p

The saving grace is that everyone will be on a pad, but even then.....I can only imagine the changes that 'auto aim' will bring to a game like this.....

on the dreamcast using the pad was more than fine. the only issues were the pain of moving the thumb to the D pad to zoom and made things too slow for using the rail gun. now with more buttons and clickable sticks that issue won't even pop up.


running, aiming, etc. with the pad still provided a fun experience back in the day

Played the demo last night, seemed to be the exact same game, I did like that the jump was the LT. When this hits ps3 it will have KB/mouse support.


Soon as I get a 1200 pt card I'll d/l the full version. My aiming skills arent as good but what the heck...


I also did not see an auto aim option..just FYI for the guy that was curious.

I love that this is here... but, there is just a disgusting amount of host advantage, and using the 360 controller plain sucks.

Hehe, with the pad probably so... KBM... entirely different outcome

Although with age my arthritic hands are not the finely tuned instruments of destruction that they once were so maybe I am just getting too damn old for these damn games, bah they'll have to bury me with my sega six button

I found that adjusting my controller sensitivity helped a bit, but I'm no mad killer on any fps
age is catching up with me



I cant even play this on the pc anymore...I get railed to death in a matter of seconds
