Live at QuakeCon 2009: Doom II, Quake Arena for XBLA

Among the towers, the PC accessories, the Galaga spaceships was a bit of early news perhaps including a glimpse at Doom II and Quake Live for the Xbox 360's Live Arcade.

[UPDATE: I should have just called this Quake Arena Arcade. Sorry about the "Quake Live" confusion.]
