Xbox 360 to get new HD DVD drive

50°
355w ago - Microsoft will launch an updated HD DVD drive for the Xbox 360 in 2008, it said at its 25th hardware anniversary in London today.

Mark Bennett, Microsoft's European business development director for HD DVD, demonstrated the technology's advanced interactive features and pointed out that Paramount, Universal Studios and many Warner Brothers high definition titles are exclusive to HD DVD.

"The interactive features actually work on HD DVD whereas Blu-ray titles are six to nine months away from getting features that actually work," Bennett said, referring to Blu-ray's current inability to do picture in picture videos. Bennett also said "there are more plans to incorporate HD DVD into the PC platform in the future."

The original Xbox360 HD DVD drive, which launched in November 2006, was fully compatible with Windows PCs and proved a hit for being the cheapest high definition drive on sale. The event, which was celebrating Microsoft's 25th anniversary of making computer hardware, saw the software giant revive its PC gaming peripherals with a new sidewinder mouse and new ergonomic keyboards and mice.

There were also multi-coloured Xbox360 controllers and it said it would sell high definition download movie rentals over its Live service before Christmas in the UK - one of the first such...

50°
355w ago - A required update was released for Madden 08 on the Xbox 360. The PS3 will receive this same patch soon. The details on what this update corrected follows below:

>>Franchise: Editing a player causes his contract value to change

>>Franchise: Former user coaches do not fill their new team's roster causing the game to stop simulating.

>>Franchise: The game crashes when simulating if the user releases all the HOF players from the Player Management Menu and then starts a franchise

>>Train for This Game: Certain Player Weapons Stat Points are not being recorded after Training.

>>Online: In Game: If the Client pulls connection at the end of game, prior to the Match Up screen, they will crash the Host.

>>Online: When the client ejects disk after the game clock has been reduced to 0:00 but before the opponent gets the match-up screen the Host will crash.

>>This update is not representative of a potentially more complete patch that will address gameplay and other franchise issues
 

New Xbox 360 update

50°
355w ago - From Major Nelson:

"First off, let me get this out of the way right up front: This is not the 'fall dashboard update.'

Today the team is releasing a minor system update via Xbox Live. Over the next few hours, when you sign in to Xbox LIVE, you'll receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. What's in this update? Much like the update last month, the only thing this minor release will do is prepare your Xbox 360 for the Big Button Pad that is being released this holiday. Why do we need to release this update now? Simple: The certification team needs time to test the new controller against the retail hardware/software combination before it hits stores.

One more thing: no new features beyond this big button pad support are included in this update and, once again, this is not the 'fall dashboard upgrade.' When I have firm details on the next major update, I will share them."

Needless to say, if you have anything resembling a hacked 360, you should hold off.
 

360 NHL 2K8 Gets Reelmaker

50°
355w ago - Last week 2K Sports unleashed NHL 2K8 on the suspecting populace, garnering slightly above average reviews all around with the notable exception of 1up, who gave it a 4 out of 10. Ouch. Perhaps they would have changed their tune has 2K released the new Reelmaker feature with the game, instead of dropping 400 Microsoft points worth of DLC a week later.

Reelmaker is an add-on for the Xbox 360 version of the game that allows players to edit together replays of the in-game action, changing angles and adding their own sound and special effects to create highlight reels that can then be shared via Xbox Live. Really doesn't sound like the kind of feature hardcore hockey fans could really sink their teeth into, but I could be wrong. Any budding directors / hockey gamers in the audience?

2K Sports Introduces the Revolutionary 2K Reelmaker to NHL® 2K8

Today, publisher 2K Sports proudly announces that the 2K Reelmaker is now available in the latest edition of the critically acclaimed NHL® 2K series, NHL® 2K8. The revolutionary 2K Reelmaker is the first feature of its kind for any online hockey title and allows gamers to create custom highlight videos viewable on Xbox LIVE.

The 2K NHL franchise returns this year with an entirely new NHL experience featuring revolutionary right stick controls,...
