The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles (Xbox 360) Coming to Retail
This week, Bethesda Softworks announced that it would be bringing The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles (Xbox 360) to retail this coming October.
Previously, you could only get this expansion set to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360) via a large download over the Xbox Live Marketplace, and if your Xbox 360 broke and needed to be replaced or Xbox Support sent you a refurbished unit, then you were screwed with their copyright policy and could only play The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles if you were connected to Xbox Live.
The ability to purchase the expansion via retail will eliminate that stupid move, and with the Knights of the Nine Plug-In also being bundled in, this is the most reliable way for anyone to get The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles.
Should I decide to get the expansion, this is the route I'm gonna take.
