Microsoft’s Xbox Live is well established as one of the most successful digital download networks in the world and now a new release in the Community Games section of site hints at a possible app-related future for the service.
Developed by a user called MatthewM, the 1080p optimised Ping Time download is a clock based on arcade classic Pong.
The press release explains: “Created on a whim while half asleep one night, Ping Time transforms your Xbox 360 and TV into an expensive retro wall clock. Watch in awe as the two AI opponents bounce a ball back and forth endlessly (or until you quit, whichever comes first), carefully maintaining their score to represent the current time.
“Ping time boasts HD Black and White graphics, and the intriguing sound of silence, efficiently packed into less than 200 KB, making it currently the smallest product on Xbox Live Community Games.”
The arrival of the download throws up an interesting prospect for the Community Games portal, and it will be fascinating to see if similar non-game downloads appear over the coming months.
Ping Time costs just 200 Microsoft Points and is available to download now.
