Can the XBox 360 really Beat the PS3 and Wii in the Console War?

200°
324w ago - The Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 are currently engaged in one of the fiercest and bloodiest console wars ever, with a winner yet to be declared. With all three home consoles still in the running, how can you expect to pick a victor?

This generation of consoles is like no past generation in one important way: it's almost impossible to pick a winner. Sure, the Wii is selling like hotcakes and currently has the lead, but both the Xbox 360 and PS3 are still selling in fair numbers month on month around the world. So how on earth do you choose which console will prove victorious at this (relatively) early stage of proceedings?

Don Reisinger writes The Digital Home, a column on CNet which looks at the state of technology in and around the house. He thinks he can predict the future, and did so in an article titled 'The Xbox 360 should win this console war'. I note he used "should" rather than "will", which is a classic case of hedging your best in case you're wrong.

In the article, Reisinger states the case for the Xbox 360 proving to be the ultimate victor in the current gen console war. This is despite the Wii currently caning the opposition in every single (sales) department, and the Xbox 360 consistently battling...
 

Pinnock: Wipeout HD Motion Control a Challenge but it Feels Right

100°
324w ago - Daimion Pinnock, the WipeOut HD producer, has revealed it was quite a challenge to get SIXAXIS motion control in Wipeout HD.

Pinnock revealed that it is possible to just throw motion control into games although they spent the time tweaking it to ensure it felt right. He added that continuous feedback was particularly important to ensure motion control was beneficial to the actual gameplay itself and not just there for the sake of it. To quote:

WP: Let's talk about the motion controls. WipeOut, from its very earliest inception, has always supported analog control, but WipeOut HD is the first in the series to actually support motion controls with the SixAxis. How hard was that to get it right?

DP: Well, it was a challenge. It certainly was a challenge to get it in there. The main thing when you're going to have the SixAxis controller in there. I mean obviously, you can go in and put it in there, but we spent time tweaking it, making sure it felt right. We got a lot of internal feedback from QA, from everyone that put their hands on WipeOut.

We actually listened to them, got their feedback in there, and we really wanted to make sure that the public didn't feel that we put it in there just for the sake of having SixAxis motion control in there, but that it felt like something...
 

Official Word on the Fallout 3 Changes: Morphine Now Med-X

100°
324w ago - There's been a lot of talk in the blogosphere about changes that were made to Fallout 3 so that the game wasn't banned in certain territories (most notably Austraila). It was revealed yesterday by Edge Online that the changes made to the game would be made across all territories, so as to not create confusion, but what changes, specifically?

I shot a note to Pete Hines, VP of Marketing and PR at Bethesda, to find out just what was changed.

UGO: Just wanted to confirm the annoucement that all versions of Fallout 3 would be indentical, with the changes being made to the names of specific drugs (changing them from real-world names to in-universe names). Can you be more specific? If I recall, all of the drugs in the builds we've played were made-up names like Buffout and Mentats.

Pete Hines: The chems in the original Fallout used fictional names... Buffout, Jet, Rad-X, etc. Those all appear in Fallout 3 in exactly the same way as before.

We had added a new chem to Fallout 3 and had given it a real-world name, Morphine. Questions were raised about the use of that real-world drug, not only in Australia, but other territories as well. We decided there was no reason it needed to be named that and...

300°
324w ago - Update: Just like the original BioShock, today [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that BioShock 2 also includes a 5GB PS3 HDD installation, and will arrive in North America on February 9, 2010.

The PS3 version of BioShock has a 5GB mandatory install that takes a little over 10 minutes to complete.

While the game's trundling onto your hard drive, your TV shows your Rapture ads and plays a little piano music.

The game was rumored to have a sizable install after the BBFC rated the game back in July, but 2K commented at the time that it was likely to have an install of "around 5 or 6 minutes" at most, according to this DarkZero report.

The news comes from the new Eurogamer playtest.

BioShock releases for PS3 on October 24, 2008.
