Microsoft aims for hack-proof 360

Microsoft aims for hack-proof 360
Published by: patto on Monday, September 12, 2005

' Microsoft plans to make its next generation games console, the Xbox 360, as difficult as possible to hack. The 360 will have security built directly into the hardware, said Xbox engineer Chris Satchell. '
Shortly after the first Xbox came out, computer scientists, smart amateur engineers and others started taking it apart and creating modification chips and software for the machine to make it do things Microsoft never intended it to.

With the 360, Microsoft is aiming to make it as hard as possible to hack.
"We've taken security to the hardware level and built it in from the ground up," said Chris Satchell from the Xbox Advanced Technology Group. "One of the reasons we went with custom hardware design for all our silicon is that it allows us to build security at the silicon level," he told the BBC News website.
"There are going to be levels of security in this box that the hacker community has never seen before."

Tell Microsoft which Xbox games you want to play on the 360

Tell Microsoft which Xbox games you want to play on the 360
Published by: patto on Sunday, September 11, 2005

' At E3 this year, Microsoft's Xbox chief Robbie Bach dropped a next-gen bombshell on their competition by announcing that the Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible with the best selling Xbox games. '
Suddenly, the Xbox 360 was capable of duking it out, bullet point for bullet point, with Sony's PlayStation 3 and its promise of playing the PS2 library. But wait... did Robbie say "best selling games?" What, so not every Xbox game will be playable on 360? Who decides what the best-selling games are, anyways?

Well, when it comes to determining backwards compatibility, the ball is entirely in Microsoft's court. As you'd expect, they've already baked-in all the no-brainer Xbox games that will work on 360 (e.g., Halo 1 and 2, Knights of the Old Republic, Fable, etc.), but with the Xbox 360 launch just around the corner this November, the boys from Redmond are unofficially reaching out to the gaming community to learn what remaining games Xbox fans would like to see backwards compatible on Xbox 360.

Ageia Withdraws Xbox 360 PhysX Claims

Ageia Withdraws Xbox 360 PhysX Claims
Published by: patto on Saturday, September 10, 2005

' Last week during the European Game Developers Conference Ageia claimed that Xbox 360 can't handle all of the PhysX features because of architecture limitations while the PS3 would be able to handle it all. '
PhysX offers technologies ranging from physical object interactions to fluid-based particle effects like water and smoke. It looks like Microsoft didn't appreciate that comment as today Ageia kinda withdrawed the claim.

Wednesday evening, Ageia vice president of marketing Andy Keane acknowledged that including those comparisons [between Xbox360 and PS3] in its presentation was a mistake, and that they were based on speculation from public specifications released on Microsoft. Although the company has tested its software on Xbox 360 development kits, Keane said, the tests were of extremely limited scope, and weren't designed to test the limitations of the hardware.

Xbox 360 'A Hell Of a System', reckons Epic's Cliffyb
Published by: patto on Saturday, September 10, 2005

Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski is currently working on Gears of War for Xbox 360 and it appears he's somewhat fond of Microsoft's next-gen console. In a recent blog post, Bleszinski (or CliffyB as he's widely known) called Xbox 360 a "BEAST" and reckons it's "capable of MUCH GREATNESS". Cripes!

The current list of next-generation console games at TGS 2005 is below..
