More XBLA games from id

More id Software games could be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade, FiringSquad says. With Doom having come to the Arcade in late September, it seems only natural that other id titles such as Quake, Commander Keen, and Wolfenstein 3D might be considered. id CEO Todd Hollenshead has this to say: "We're looking at bringing some of the other games to XLA, but a lot is going to depend on the response to DOOM. From what MS tells us, its been fantastic so far, which bodes well for other id 'classics' to be released there. But there's nothing concrete. Making the surprise announcement at X06 for DOOM worked out great, so I'll be tight lipped about anything specific for now." Speaking of Quake, John Romero has released cleaned-up source code for the game's maps. You can download it here. Previously, the only (easy) way of replicating Quake's maps was by imitation.
