If four-hour gaming sessions of killing, stealing, coveting thy neighbor's ox or donkey, and breaking every other Commandment leaves you feeling distant from the Lord, a Bible application is coming to Xbox Live's Indie Games channel.
B&H Publishing Group has put together "Bible Navigator X" for the Xbox 360. Unlike the Gideons, they're not giving it out for free. It'll run you 400 points. Yeah? Well, the God I believe in isn't short of Microsoft Points, mister ...
According to Media Bistro, Aaron Linne, B&H's executive director of digital marketing, said:
The Xbox isn't just secular entertainment anymore. We can use technology that other people developed to study Scriptures through a new medium. Some people are just more comfortable with a controller in their hands than a book.
The version used is the Holman Christian Standard Bible. I'm not sure how that one differs, but then, I was raised in a part of the country where there literally are bumper stickers that say "If It's Not King James, It's Not Real Bible." So if you drive that truck I saw on I-40 in Burke County, this probably won't appeal to you.
Who's reviewing this? Totilo talked about "XBLA Chasers" and this qualifies, so I volunteer him!
