SmartXX Xbox360 DevKit M$ Sting

SmartXX Xbox360 DevKit M$ Sting
Published by: forahobby on Sunday, October 23, 2005

' At the end of August, we reported SmartXX somehow obtained 3 Xbox 360 dev kits. They posted up pictures, seemingly for bragging rights. Now the truth comes out–it was part of an investigation to discover those involved in the theft of 10 of the XeDK boxes. '
After the boxes were stolen from MS-storage depot in Germany, 7 of them were offered to SmartXX, who accepted 4. SmartXX immediately contacted Microsoft. Microsoft was in on those pictures leaked by SmartXX, meant to decrease the value of the boxes, and to create a market to lure the remaining consoles into the open.

This plan worked, and on Septermber 6, 14 more XeDKs were stolen. Unfortunately, the pursuit failed and no one was caught.

Despite SmartXX’s cooperation with Microsoft in this undercover sting, SmartXX still isn’t out of hot water with the police. A house searched of SmartXX’s “Franz” was performed Sunday. Police still have not returned a laptop and digital camera which were confiscated at a prior date.

360 Controller Multi Platform!

360 Controller Multi Platform!
Published by: patto on Saturday, October 22, 2005

According to Xbox Official Magazine, the wired 360 controller will be standard USB 2.0 . Why should you care? Remember all of those wonderful controller mods we did when we first found out that the Xbox used standard USB with funky adapters? Now this baby will plug right into your USB port on your computer.

"What about drivers?" you ask? Who needs the drivers? You've got XNA. What is XNA? Read about it here:

So for those of you (and myself) who spent the first hours modding your Xbox breakaway cable, don't worry about it anymore! XNA to the rescue.

Gates predicts disc-free future for Xbox 360: No HD DVD, no Blu-Ray

Gates predicts disc-free future for Xbox 360: No HD DVD, no Blu-Ray
Published by: hq_hacker_girl on Thursday, October 20, 2005

' In a recent speech at Howard University, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates shared his vision for the Xbox 360 and speculated on the future of next-gen optical disc formats HD DVD and Blu-Ray. '
According to Gates, the Xbox 360 will be
“more than 10 times better in terms of the visual realism, the speed, the depth of what you can do”

… however, the real breakthrough will be the console’s connectivity.

Gates outlined that the Xbox 360 would be capable of connecting to a variety of music players and cameras via USB, including the Apple iPod.

He summed it up by saying that

“this box really is about integrating all the different digital sources together and making it very simple.”

Gates’ comments on the future of the HD DVD and Blu-Ray formats were particularly interesting, pointing to a future where optical discs would become obsolete and content delivery would take place via the internet.
