As we update, Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference is still going on... but Jetlag has already grabbed the three seconds of Wing Commander Arena footage included in their Live Arcade montage for us! The future looks very bright for XBLA, with upcoming games including everything from chess and checkers to robot fighting games... and, of course, Wing Commander! If you're desperate for a hit of Arena, however brief, check it out!
Edit: AD reports that the footage is just a brief clip from an earlier trailer (available here). I guess it's still cool to see Arena on national TV, though!

This week's Xbox Live Arcade titles are... Sonic the Hedgehog and Golden Axe. Both are ports of classic Sega console games and each will set you back 400 MSPoints ($5). The announcement was held off to coincide with Microsoft's evening E3 presentation. Sonic the Hedgehog and Golden Axe should be fun, but I'd rather be earning a Golden Sun for being shot down by Sonic the Accelerator Gun. Right? At the very least, Sonic this isn't the ring game I wanted to play! Eh? Aww. Anyway, as a result we've reset our Arena counter to the next window - 7/18.
