Digital distribution is the wave of the future … or at least that’s what Sony and Microsoft would have us believe. New titles are dropping onto Xbox Games on Demand, except some of them aren’t exactly what you would have gotten if you picked up a disc.

According to Destructoid, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and Power Rangers Super Samurai have just become available on Games on Demand. But the most noteworthy title being converted to digital format is Halo 3: ODST. Unfortunately, the digital copy of ODST will completely lack any multiplayer component, allowing you to play the single-player campaign only. The game is available now at a reduced price, $14.99, but you can find used versions hanging out in game stores here or there for even less with the multiplayer still intact.

Next week, X-Men: The Official Game and Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard will be added to Games on Demand. Sure, they aren’t the biggest titles in the world, but it’s always nice to see a company expanding its digital platform.
