Good X06 Summary October 7, 2006

While looking at the gaming sites today I noticed a very good article that I’ll point you towards from IGN, Go Here for it. It describes Microsoft’s chances and the next generation race very good. I agree with many of the points. It is shocking though when I realize only 5 titles have been made by Microsoft Game Studios for Xbox 360 by the end of the year. Many fantastic titles are coming soon though so I can’t wait. X06 was the event that separated us, and the event that won the console war in my mind.

X06 September 28, 2006

X06 was incredible, just incredible today. All news is here.

Highlights:

Banjo Kazooie was announced that a new chapter would be coming to Xbox 360! I was right, it is beautiful.

Halo Wars was announced being made by Ensemble Studios and it is truly incredible.

PGR4 was announced.

The next chapter in the Splinter Cell Series (Number 5) will be exclusive to Windows Vista and Xbox 360.

Bioshock is also doing the same.

GTA IV will have hours of exclusive content, only on Xbox 360.

Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player $199.99 in mid November.

And finally Doom is on Xbox Live Marketplace now.

Cya all, I am off to California. Be back Monday! Go Xbox 360 and WIndows Vista!

If you can remember this week Microsoft announced that all Xbox 360s manufactured before 1/1/06 could recieve a repair free of charge since the warranties were extended one year I jumped on the chance and am on the phone with my slow Xbox support help. It looks like my Xbox 360 will be heading back to the repair shop for free. I think it is better long term because I have had the three red lights of death twice and many freezes. It is time for my Xbox 360 to go back and relax, get thrown in a pit and be happier and come back repaired. Cya Launch Box, I’ll miss you. I’ll post pictures.

Even though I don’t live in Europe I still check out Europe Sites, here is one. When the creator of Lumines was asked when will the game release on Xbox Live Arcade he responded:”Next month,” said Mizuguchi when we asked him when it was going to be released. “The middle of next month. I think so.”

Gears of War Will Be Good on SDTVS September 25, 2006

Via the Gears of War message board Epic stated that they have started to test Gears of War on SDTVs to avoid problems that other games have suffered such as the bad lighting in King Kong and small text in many games. Epic must understand as the 360’s flagship title this season it must perform, good.

F.E.A.R. September 25, 2006

F.E.A.R. the fear demo as one has also been released onto Xbox Live Marketplace today, so don’t go buy that OXM issue it is finally up onto Live. This is apart of Microsoft’s Bringing It Home content. The game is set to release November 21, 2006 but I expect to see it bumped up to go with the PS3 launch since a PS3 version of F.E.A.R. will release the 17th of November.
