1UP Finds Evidence of Sony Anti-360 Propaganda

1UP Finds Evidence of Sony Anti-360 Propaganda
Published by: patto on Sunday, November 27, 2005

1UP has allegedly found evidence of wholly owned Sony subsidiary Koyeo actively encouraging its employees to defame Microsoft's Xbox 360 by spreading malicious rumours about faulty/overheating units.

According to 1UP, "Project Light Flame" has seen Koyeo pay its third party employees to actually incite defamatory views about the console. While it was fair to expect certain hardcore Sony fans to engage in similar activity, if proven to be true Sony may find itself at the centre of an extremely damaging legal battle before its console is even launched.

With the launch of the PS3 looking like slipping further and further back, Sony can be expected to step up its anti-Xbox 360 marketing, however illegal tactics such as this shock even us hardened journalists.

Neither Sony nor Microsoft were available for comment at the time of writing.

Next-Next-Gen Storage Medium?

Next-Next-Gen Storage Medium?
Published by: forahobby on Sunday, November 27, 2005

Maxell has recently announced their plans to release a new storage medium late next year. The technology, created by InPhase Technologies, is called Holographic Versatile Disc (HVD.)

The disc boasts a 300GB storage at launch with a 20MBps transfer rate. In time, the disc should achieve 1.6TB (1,600 GB) storage capacity with a 120MBps bandwidth transfer rate. Furthermore, InPhase promises that the discs will be able to store the data for over 50 years, compared to the 20–100 year life (depending on who you talk to) for the commonplace CD-RW.

Is this what the next-next-gen consoles will be using. The PlayStation 3 will be using Blu-Ray, with a 25–50GB storage capacity and upwards of a 40Mbps data transfer rate. The DVD that Microsoft uses can store almost 9GB. Does Bill Gates already have plans of the third generation Xbox to support HVD, and What about Ken Kutaragi? It’s definitely where things would lead to.

Xbox 360 COD2 Strange Graphics Errors

Xbox 360 COD2 Strange Graphics Errors
Published by: patto on Saturday, November 26, 2005

' Screenshots have been released of cod2 graphic errors and gliches '
Unlike the earlier reports his Xbox 360 is not crashing, but displays some very strange graphics. To fix he has to turn off the console and let it cool down for a bit ... so it looks like another heat problem (hot GPU/RAM?)

Here are some screenshots of COD2 messing up the graphics display during gameplay.

We will keep you up to date with any information we can find.. Please report any other issues or discuss your new 360 in our forums here.

More from Free60 Project: XCP and Hypervisor details
Published by: patto on Saturday, November 26, 2005

' Gprime recently sniffed the network traffic to/from the Xbox 360 and noticed that everything downloaded from xbox live arcade is done as a (encrypted) .xcp file. It's done so over an HTTP (unencrypted) protocol on port 3074. '
Some details about these files have been posted on the Free60 wiki:

It's been found that Xbox360 Live Arcade downloads files with the extension .xcp over unencrypted http on port 3074 for content distribution.
- They appear to have no headers and be symmetrically encrypted. (This information from conversation in #free60)
- It may be possible to use the avatar downloads to glean more info about the file format.
- The communication is pure http and you can redirect traffic to a local webserver, however it does checksum the file
