DDR – Extra Content? February 27, 2007

DDR fans were happy with the release of the game for Xbox 360 today and the usual picture pack and theme were released with the game. But there was other content that was also released – Downloadable Songs. 10 Songs are on Marketplace now to download for 100 Microsoft Points each or 800 Microsoft Points for all 10. Was the content left out of the game? Is it the magic 108 KB file? This content is questionable that it came out today. If it was two months down the line it’d be fine but this is too soon and too much extra money for a game. This adds another $10 to an already expensive ($79) game. Does this not make you want to buy the game now?

Gamepro GDC Predictions February 27, 2007

Gamepro has done some predictions for GDC and there a lots of Microsoft predictions for the good of the platform. I like this one a lot, and something about price dropping and Black Xbox 360s, click on Gamepro above for the full article.

PREDICTION: Microsoft will announce a final release date for Halo 3.

Likelihood: 75%
Submitted by: Major Mike

Why it WILL happen: Bungie has already targeted fall of 2007, but it’s likely that Microsoft will attempt to grab headlines at GDC by narrowing this timeframe down to a specific month. Riding high on the success of Crackdown (due in part to the bundled Halo 3 beta invitation), Microsoft has little to lose and much to gain. In fact, Microsoft Game Studios’ Xbox 360 plans for 2007 revolve almost entirely around Halo 3. As the first Halo game to land on the Xbox 360, expectations are high all around. Skipping Halo 3 talk at GDC would be a waste of an opportunity to get the game back into gamers’ minds as they debate whether to buy an Xbox 360 or a PS3.

Peter Molyneux is doing one of the keynotes I believe at GDC, too bad Bill Gates won’t be there. Then there would be two great keynotes, an imaginative keynote about Fable by Molyneux, then the Sony Conference.

PREDICTION: Internet commentators will love Shigeru Miyamoto’s keynote and hate Phil Harrison’s.

Likelihood: 80%
Submitted by: Dave May Cry

Why it WILL happen: It’s practically a given. The PS3’s high price point, coupled with Sony’s past displays of arrogance, have made the company an irresistible whipping boy for vitriolic blogs. In contrast, Nintendo’s new underdog status and fan-favorite Wii have made them the critical darlings of the moment. In keeping, blog reactions will almost exclusively pan Harrison’s keynote, regardless of what he actually says, while trumpeting that of the charismatic Miyamoto.

Mii Parade Record February 27, 2007

I never thought my Mii Parade post would get as many views as it has and is one of the top pages when googled for Mii Parade. It has set a record that continues to grow with the most hits on this site and over 161 comments as of now. I talked up Nintendo a lot, then I bought the Wii and haven’t been as excited since – hopefully new games come out that push the system more and aren’t crappy minigames. I did Nintendo posts back near Wii’s launch then stopped becasue there is barely any Nintendo News since but hey – one Nintendo post is the most viewed on this site!

Worms Live February 26, 2007

Today on Xbox.com the Worms page went live. In the recent interview with Team 17 they said it’d be coming out soon but the question was how soon. The game finished development back in September 2006 and has been in the certification process since. Typically when Arcade game pages go live the game is released. This week’s slot is Alien Hominid HD, so will Worms be next week’s game? Save those Microsoft Points, I spent mine so I doubt I’ll buy Worms unless it is an amazing trial version of the game as Worms has a lot of content not in the core component of the game.

Bungie Weekly Update February 26, 2007

This week’s Bungie Update talked about how a new technique where everything in the game is transferred to look like the image above, that image is a map called “Vallhalla.” It seems like usual that everything has continued to run smoothly and the polish on Halo 3 continues. The audio and graphics are talked up again about how amazing Frank thinks they are in the recent internal alpha build he played. Halo 3 will also have some new multiplayer options as Frank mentions playing new modes and there will also be Forerunner Glass in the game so Forerunners will play a part in this game. Halo comes out soon, well in the fall!

GRAW 2 Assaults Live and 2K Baseball February 26, 2007

Today on Xbox Live Marketplace a GRAW 2 demo has been released to all Xbox Live gold members and the demo for MLB 2K7 was also released. The details for GRAW 2 were a bit surprising on the Dash, the game will only have SIX missions and eight multiplayer levels. Will there be downloadable content? Let’s hope not. Go play the demos!
