Micrcosoft commenting on modchips for Xbox 360

Micrcosoft commenting on modchips for Xbox 360
Published by: patto on Saturday, September 03, 2005

' Gamasutra.com posted an article about what they learned from Xbox 360 presentation at the GDC Europe 2005 in London, most of which has been covered in our previous news items, but in their conclusion they have something very interesting. Andre Vrignaud, Director of Technical Strategy for Xbox Live, referred to modchips for Xbox360 '
More interestingly, a question from an audience member on the security for Xbox 360 in terms of 'mod chips' and other devices that modify for imported/illegal content prompted a reply that Microsoft took 2 and a half years on security this time round, whereas the Xbox only had around a year. Vrignaud prompted: "Never say never", but he thinks it's going to be a long time before the Xbox 360 gets modded.

Xbox360 questions answered by Chris Satchell

Xbox360 questions answered by Chris Satchell
Published by: patto on Saturday, September 03, 2005

Eurogamer.net talked with Chris Satchell, general manager of Microsoft's Game Developer Group, who answered many questions about the Xbox 360. Here's a excerpt of some of the interesting stuff he said
* You will definitely need a hard disk to play Xbox 1 games.
* If you yank the hard disk off the top of the Xbox 360 when it's in the middle of doing something, it will not corrupt it beyond repair or damage the File Allocation Table or anything like that - the hard disk uses a "transaction model" so that if you interrupt a transfer the data simply isn't present and the space is presumably reallocated when you next save data to it.
* The "ring of light" around the power button highlights which wireless controller is being used, highlighting player one's activity in the top-left quadrant. When the console is laid on its side, it senses this and starts using the top-left quadrant as you see it with the console laid flat. What's more, the ring of light motif is spread throughout the Xbox 360 interface, so you can see which player pulled up the "Guide" page as you're watching a film or playing a game and, in the words of Satchell, "slap him".

Xbox 360 can't handle all of the PhysX's features?

Xbox 360 can't handle all of the PhysX's features?
Published by: patto on Friday, September 02, 2005

' As Valve demonstrated with Half-Life 2, true-to-life physics can have a lasting impact on gameplay, and next-generation should prove that notion even more so. '
What's interesting, however, is how this plays out between PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. At the European Game Developers Conference, Extreme Tech noted that the company confirmed plans to offer software-based rendering for single and dual-core PCs, PCs decked out with PhysX chips and software versions for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Toshiba Admits Possible HD-DVD Delay

Toshiba Admits Possible HD-DVD Delay
Published by: patto on Friday, September 02, 2005
Tagged: Hardware,

' It had been thought that HD-DVD would go on sale at the end of the year, but now it would appear that the format will be delayed until some time in 2006. '

"We originally aimed for the year-end launch in the United States, but we have not really decided on that," said a Toshiba spokesperson. "We are now in talks with Hollywood studios and large-scale retailers to see the most effective timing of the launch and the best way to launch."

Published by: patto on Thursday, September 01, 2005
Tagged: Hardware,

' Microsoft plans to launch the Xbox 360 as late as Friday, November 25, the day after Thanksgiving, with software potentially hitting shelves earlier that week, sources from three US retailers told IGN today. '
The three retail chains, all of whom independently pointed to Friday, November 25, as the hardware launch day, received email describing launch data late Monday. Launch day games have been re-assigned from early November to Monday, November 22, as potential first day ship dates. When contacted, Microsoft would not confirm or deny the information. In previous official announcements, Microsoft has said Xbox 360 will vaguely launch this fall.

Xbox 360: New Details from GDC Europe

Xbox 360: New Details from GDC Europe
Published by: patto on Thursday, September 01, 2005
Tagged: Hardware,

' At the Game Developers Conference Europe 2005, Microsoft delivered an interesting lecture on Xbox 360 development, revealing some new info on the The Guide, Xbox Live, and other features that debut with the Xbox 360. '
- Vrignaud explained how the new Xbox 360 Guide liberates game developers from writing a lot of code since it is an always-running application that handles configuration and device management and common system tasks such as Xbox Live log-in, log-out, alerts, Friend’s List, game invitations, plus game saves, controller disconnection, music playback, and error messages.

- One of the things that the Gamer Profile will include is your common game settings for different types of games. So for example, you always use automatic gear in racing games and inverted Y-axis controls in first-person shooters, once you load any racing game or FPS, the game will automatically load your Gamer Profile settings, saving you to set up any of these in the game configuration screen.
