XBLA Size Limit Increased Again

So now the size limit for an Xbox Live Arcade game is up to 350 MB from 150 MB. Remember, it was originally only 50 MB. Microsoft says this increase should provide gamers with better games to choose from on XBLA.

And I agree. Sure, this will start filling people's harddrives faster, but Microsoft is still standing behind their delete it and download it again free stance. As long as that doesn't change, bigger XBLA games are a good thing.

Originally, the size was 50 MB so gamers could fit them on the memory cards for the Xbox 360. But let's face it, hardly anybody is using one of those cards. The real gamers all have harddrives on their 360.
