Xbox Live just got a little more awesomer.
Contra, one of the most beloved side-scrollers ever, will be available on Xbox Live November 8th.
No word yet on whether or not the world's most famous cheat code will be active in the XBL version of the game.
Microsoft also announced that a slew of classic Atari titles will be available starting in January, including both "classic" and "evolved" versions of Centipede/Millepede, Battlezone, Asteroids/Asteroids Deluxe, Missle Command, Tempest and Warlords.
I've said this before and I'll say it again, Xbox Live Arcade is the most compelling reason to own a 360 (until tomorrow when Gears of War comes out).
