Let’s get one thing straight: RSS feeds rarely lie. In this case, and it isn’t the first time either, someone on the Xbox Live team was a bit too eager about Mass Effect coming to Games on Demand.Â So much so, that it was posted publicly, and while no one probably caught it while it was up, the Xbox.com Marketplace RSS still managed to pick it up.
Add to that, the posting itself also reveal another very interesting thing about Games on Demand: game manuals. Every title will come with an electronic game manual, available to you, from what the text suggests (and this is my personal interpretation), potentially before you purchase the game.Â This would be pretty interesting in that you could read up about the story of the game, take in the control scheme and get a better feel for things than a simple game case would give you.
Download the manual for this game by locating the game on http://marketplace.xbox.com and selecting â€œSee Game Manual”.
The posting also reveals, what Bioware has been stating for a long time to come, that there will be more DLC other than ‘Bring Down the Sky,’ which was only one world for you to explore. The key here is that the text itself refers to multiple worlds, and not juts a single world. This could be simple wordplay, or it could be a confirmation of what is to come.

So did anyone actually manage to queue this up and download it? Who is actually excited about the whole Games on Demand service?
