Xbox 360 controller to work with PCs too

Xbox 360 controller to work with PCs too
Published by: hq_hacker_girl on Thursday, October 20, 2005

' Microsoft on Wednesday released a new controller for its upcoming Xbox 360 device which also works with PCs. '
The Xbox 360 Controller for Windows will work with the upcoming Xbox 360 console, as well as with computers that have the Windows XP operating system.

"Gamers can simply unplug their controller from their Xbox 360 system and plug it into their Windows XP-based PC," Chris Donahue, director of Windows gaming at Microsoft, said in a statement. "This is a great breakthrough for the gaming industry as we make it easier for developers to create multiplatform titles."

The controller features a new design meant to improve ergonomics. It also offers "force feedback vibration support" and a button layout.

Xbox 360 will support AAC format — there’s a catch

Xbox 360 will support AAC format — there’s a catch
Published by: hq_hacker_girl on Wednesday, October 19, 2005
Tagged: Xbox 360,

Last week, I forwarded a number of your questions (see comments) about the Xbox 360 to Major Nelson (aka Larry Hryb, director of programming for Xbox Live). Major Nelson was kind enough to get back to me with some answers (based on an “official marketing description”):

Support for unprotected music in MP3 and WMA formats from most portable music players (list in development)
Support for protected music from certain players (list in development)
Support for unprotected music from your iPod in AAC format with free download (Silver or Gold Account) from Xbox Live Marketplace (requires an Xbox 360 Hard Drive or Memory Unit). Note: Does not support music that was downloaded from the iTunes music store because it is copy protected [And herein lies the catch: AAC files originating from the iTunes music store will not be supported]

Use wireless or wired home network to listen to protected and unprotected music from your PC running Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center 2005

Rumor: 40GB and 80GB HD on Xbox 360

Rumor: 40GB and 80GB HD on Xbox 360
Published by: hq_hacker_girl on Wednesday, October 19, 2005
Tagged: Xbox 360,

We’ve been tipped off that Xbox 360s shown at the Digital Life show this past weekend at the Jacob Javitz were sportin’ 40GB and 80GB hard drives. We can’t confirm it with photos or anything, but according to our observant tipster one Xbox 360 was shown to have 38 GB of space remaining when a Microsoft representative navigated a “memory” section for a few brief moments.

We wouldn’t post this if it didn’t make a lot of intuitive sense. It also jives with our theory that the Xbox 360 is a trojan horse for direct-to-consumer broadband delivery of triple-A titles. 40GB drives are just the beginning. Before the Xbox 360 generation is over, there will be multi-terabyte add-on storage options.

Update: This is not to say that the Xbox 360 will ship with anything other than the 20GB drive that has been announced. We confirmed with Microsoft that the console will launch with only the 20GB hard drive initially. This is more about evolution of the console post-launch.

Through the years, I, Professor Jason Q. Lutz, have collected thousands of pieces of shocking, mind-blowing evidence. Evidence that proves that Hex 168 motivates our most bizarre, transcendent, and oddest moments. I was tipped off to many of these Hex 168 incidents by fellow truth-seekers who used a secret back-channel to contact me.

If you hear rumblings or “pre-vibrations” of future Hex 168 outbreaks, use this encrypted info-stream to warn me about them BEFORE the incident occurs. Our Research Department may send an official Lutz delegation as witnesses! Study these documents so you can track down future Hex’d moments. You can also click here for helpful tips and answers to questions. The Beginning is Nigh! Professor Jason Q. Lutz.

IGN Live was already set to be huge, but now we have even more exciting news to announce. IGN's first live event October 22-23 at the Anaheim Convention Center will feature playable XBox 360 titles on the show floor.

Confirmed XBox 360 games at IGN Live include THQ's The Outfit and EA's Need for Speed Most Wanted, though rumor has it there may be even more titles to be announced.

At IGN Live, fans will be able to preview these and more of the latest and upcoming games from a variety of the industry’s biggest publishers, challenge other gamers for cash prizes, and meet game developer heroes to learn tips about getting into the game industry.
