PlayStation Home-esque Experience Coming to XBox Live?

300°
262w ago - Today Joystiq (linked above) received some interesting info from a reader, who claimed to have taken part in a survey run by Microsoft which featured avatars playing classic arcade games in a virtual arcade setting.

If that sounds familiar, you probably played PlayStation Home before.

To quote: If a consumer survey sent over to us by a tipster is to be believed, Microsoft is looking to bring a virtual Avatar arcade to the Xbox 360. Some of the potential names listed in the survey are "Game Room," "RetroCade," "Tower of ROM," and "Classics LIVE." Yeah, we're partial to "Tower of ROM" also.

If the proposed service sounds familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to PlayStation Home's arcade spaces - like Namco's virtual arcade - just replace the dead-eyed dopplegangers of Home with the scrunchable avatars of Xbox 360.

The second survey question sent to us asks, "Which of the following names would most compel you to purchase the product?" indicating that the "Tower of ROM" might not be a free space but could instead have a fee associated with it.

To quote: There's a new patch update that we will be releasing later this week, which will fix some of the issues that have come to our attention since the initial launch of the full game, and the inclusion of the DLC pack released previously in August.

The DLC pack can be purchased for $4.99, or you can purchase the 3 individual packs for $1.99 each. The full game is priced at $9.99, and there's even a demo so you can try before you by.

For more on the update, once again here's John McLaughlin from Xdev Studio Europe to give you a rundown. Looking forward to seeing you online soon!!

Hello to all Crash Commandos,

Well I asked you all to go easy on my last time, but it looks like no one took any notice of my begging. )

Rumor: Universal Video Recording Feature Coming to XBox 360

250°
263w ago - It appears as though a developer has already hinted that universal game video recording is officially coming to the Xbox 360 courtesy of Microsoft.

According to Kotaku, this means the type of recording things you see in Halo 3, to quote:

"In a meeting last week with a game developer at the Tokyo Game Show, I asked them if they were planning on trying to incorporate in-game video capture into their title. The type you see in Halo 3.

The answer was interesting and, I believe, accidental.

"We'd love to have video capture in our game, but why work on something that the platform holder is already developing," said the developer, who I'm keeping anonymous to cover for his accidental slip-up.

The idea of a universal, platform-level video capture system for games seems like a good idea, and one that fits in nicely with the plans that Microsoft has for the Xbox 360."

265w ago - Today Pelfast President John Bates has shared a Comet Crash defense gameplay video, and he announced that a Comet Crash free update will be coming soon to PSN for the PlayStation 3.

To quote: This is John Bates and Jennifer Pourchot from Pelfast. Pelfast is a small indie startup located in sunny California.

Our highly acclaimed debut title, Comet Crash for PS3 has turned the tower defense genre on its head with completely new and exciting gameplay. We've been busy again with a free update that will add a few new features described at the end of the post. For those unfamiliar with Comet Crash, here's a quick run down.

Finally, you can send massive swarms of your own troops to wreak havoc on the relentless waves of enemies. Ahhh... sweet revenge!
