Posted in Games by Reuben Drake on August 4th, 2011

Fans of Black Ops have something to be very happy about. The latest map pack titled “Rezurrection” will be coming to the Xbox 360 followed by PC and PlayStation 3 later. Sadly these maps will not be multiplayer maps though.

You get a new map level called “Moon” along with four re-mastered zombie maps: “Nacht der Üntoten,” “Verrückt,” “Shi No Numa” and “Der Riese.” They should be released on August 23rd for the XBox, with PS3 and PC following later.

Xbox 360 references discovered in Windows 8 kernel

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2011

We know that Microsoft is currently working on building Xbox LIVE support into Windows 8, but it looks like the company could also be building in support for Xbox 360 games on the PC. Microsoft has already confirmed that the company plans to build Xbox LIVE into the PC and into Windows 8, but the latest rumor is that Xbox 360 games will be playable on Windows 8 PCs.

The rumors may be true if references to the Xbox 360 in Windows 8 are anything to go by. Italian site win8italia has discovered several strings that mention the Xbox 360 system inside the Windows 8 kernel. “XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH” and “XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH_RESERVED” are present in ntoskrnl.exe, part of the Windows NT kernel. The strings hint at much tighter integration between Xbox 360 systems and Windows 8.

Microsoft gives the Xbox 360 Slim a hardware update

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2011

Microsoft is planning another hardware update for the Xbox 360. This new update is all under the hood and won’t affect the look of the machine very much if at all. New Xbox 360 slim consoles will come with a new System on a Chip that will put the CPU, GPU, system memory and I/O logic all on the same piece of silicon.

This should make the console quieter, allow it to have an even smaller power pack and also generate less heat. It will actually be cheaper to manufacture than the old multi-chip system, so Microsoft will make more profit on each console sold.

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2011

See that? This isn’t some fancy new peripheral for a game of XBox 360 Horseshoes. It’s a new Wireless Speed Wheel for $60. It will arrive in October. It’s not a full wheel, but at least it has extra green lights and directional and action buttons.

There’s also a rumble pack inside for force feedback and a pair of trigger buttons on the underside for your gas and brakes. What do you think?

Xbox 360 gets cloud saving, game request beacons

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

Unveiled at an E3 keynote, Microsoft has bestowed upon us a pair of new and heavily requested Xbox Live features that will come with the update. It should now store saved game info and a full Live profile. This allows you to hop to another Xbox 360 and resume progress without having to start from scratch.

Beacons are also new and show your friends your desire to play a game. Individual titles can be marked with beacons and will show up as interested parties on Live, even when you are playing something else. This lets gamers kill time with a game or a video until friends are ready to play with each other.

Microsoft unveils live TV streaming for Xbox 360 from Sky TV, Foxtel and Canal

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

Looks like the recent rumors were true. Microsoft has announced a new streaming TV implementation for the Xbox 360 today. The Kinect and Bing-powered voice search which can pull in content from online sources like Hulu, Netflix and Xbox Live Marketplace, will also work with live TV from IPTV partners.

Great news for the console. Right now that list only includes Sky in the UK, Foxtel in Australia and Canal+ in France, but users there will be able to search across those services and view them directly through the console. No info on any US-based partners.

Mad Catz’ exclusive Xbox 360 wireless headphones

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 5th, 2011

You might remember that Mad Catz scored the exclusive rights to produce Xbox 360 wireless headphones not long ago. Well here they are here and apparently they don’t need to be tethered to your controller for voice chat or plugged into a wall to charge. The new Mad Catz Warhead 7.1 gets everything it needs from a base station connected to your console. Using USB and optical cables directly from the Xbox 360 to the tower shown above, and it will supposedly deliver enough 5.8GHz bandwidth for virtual Dolby surround sound on four pairs of headphones at once — plus wireless Xbox LIVE audio chat. Pretty awesome.

The USB base station will also give you an on-screen battery readout, and there’s a second swappable battery pack in the base station’s charger. It will be under $300 this holiday season.

Xbox 360 250GB Kinect bundle dropping to $299.99?

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2011

The image above is from the Video Game section of Target’s online storefront announcing “free shipping” on a $299.99 Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect bundle. Pretty sweet. But if you click you’ll find the regular $399.99 price tag.

So it looks like retailers are getting ready for price drops on the 250GB Kinect bundle before E3. Either that or it could just be a mistake? We should know soon either way. Our money is on a price drop.

Splitfish FragFX Shark for Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2011

Splitfish is bringing its PC and PS3 mouse controller to the Xbox. However this version needs a wired Xbox 360 gamepad to act as an intermediary between itself and the console. Seems an odd design choice. The wired controller plugs into the Shark’s wireless USB dongle, while the “fragchuck” and mouse are completely free of wires.

It doesn’t sound like a setup that I would want to deal with but if you want to give it a try, it will be available in late August.

Some Xbox 360s not reading discs: Microsoft to give owners a new system, year of XBL

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2011

Looks like Sony isn’t the only gaming giant having problems. Microsoft’s new disc format will allow for an extra 1GB of storage space for new games and hopefully stop piracy, but there is a problem. It looks like some consoles contain drives that can’t read the new XGD3 discs. Opps.

The email pictured above has been confirmed as real by the Xbox Support Twitter account, but now it’s responding to inquiries by saying that the replacements are in response to a previous update and not the upcoming one that has been in beta.

Sony NGP with Xbox 360 detailing shows up in China

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2011

Check this out. Somebody has a split personality. This knock-off NGP is called the iReadyGo RG. It’s a rip off of Sony’s upcoming handheld with the same 5-inch touchscreen, however it has some identity problems. The detailing is clearly inspired by the Xbox 360.

Other specs are rumored to include a 1GHz Cortex-A8 CPU, 720p camera, HDMI-out, and video playback compatibility for MP4, WMV, AVI, and many more. Apparently it will also have Android too, since iReadyGo is looking for six senior Android developers. No word on pricing or availability yet, but we will just wait for the real deal.
