There's a new way to purchase Wing Commander Arena directly from your computer! Back when the game was first released, a handful of Wingnuts unable to get an XBox system still wanted to purchase the game and contribute towards its sales. This wasn't possible in 2007, but xbox.com has been upgraded with this functionality now. Just to clarify: nothing has changed about the game itself, and Arena is still only available to play on the XBox 360. This new purchase option is fairly easy though - the steps to follow are listed below. Microsoft has also posted a FAQ on the process. This same method can also be used to purchase the recently discounted Arena Themes.
