Oblivion Expansion Confirmed for 360.

The first expansion for mega hit RPG Oblivion, Shivering Isles, has been confirmed by developer Bethesda to be available for Xbox 360 alongside the PC version this Spring.

While the PC version will only be available at retail, you'll need to squeeze the 360 version into however many gigs are left on your 13GB HDD (6.9 here) as it will only be available through Xbox Live Marketplace.

At a likely retail price of $29.99 for PC, this will undoubtedly be the first Xbox Live download requiring the purchase of two 1600 point cards ($20 a pop). It'd be nice if Xbox owners got a slight break on the price because of the digital distribution, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

No word on the plans for a PS3 version of the expansion as the original game won't be out until the Spring. Is it possible the PS3 port was delayed to allow inclusion of the expansion? They've got lots of space on those BD-ROM's after all...
