Ping Time

Xbox 360-based novelty clock.

Chester, SC April 21, 2009 Bridging the gap between retro games and apps, Ping Time turns classic black and white retro gameplay into a non-interactive clock format.

Created on a whim while half asleep one night, Ping Time transforms your Xbox 360 and TV into an expensive retro wall clock. Watch in awe as the two AI opponents bounce a ball back and forth endlessly (or until you quit, whichever comes first), carefully maintaining their score to represent the current time. Ping time boasts HD Black and White graphics, and the intriguing sound of silence, efficiently packed into less than 200 KB, making it currently the smallest product on Xbox Live Community Games.

Ping Time is available for just 200 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360. To download the trial or to purchase, login to Xbox Live and look for it on Xbox Live Community Games, or go to to queue up the trial or full product.
