50°
324w ago - Update: Apparently this isn't anything 'new' as PS3 online users are also reporting Army of Two, Burnout Paradise, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2 have an In-Game Friends List as well as Resistance for well over a year now.

Watchful reader StevieK08 has alerted us to the fact that the new Haze Demo has an in games friend list. To see it, get to the main menu, hit triangle once, triangle a second time, and voila!, up pops the friends list.

We have not had a chance to verify but Steve attached a screen shot that appears to confirm his story. If you have the demo, please give it a try and let us know. Thanks!
 

Microsoft explains the 'TheGayerGamer' name change issue

50°
324w ago - Microsoft's Stephen Toulouse has explained why the company decided issue a name change request against the gamertag "TheGayerGamer". "We recieved a complaint on the Gamertag and determined that it did indeed contain sexual innuendo.

Now granted, there could be an argument that the text is not pejorative to homosexuality and should therefore be allowed. But there is no context to explain that.

Gamertags are visible to everyone and it would be hard for me to defend to a parent of a young child who saw it that the name did not contain content of a sexual nature."

To quote: Xbox Live policies and Gamertags

I've gotten some questions today regarding a recent name change my team issued against the gamertag "TheGayerGamer". As I have mentioned before, the community brings content that may potentially violate the terms of use to our attention via the complaint system.

For text and profile complaints we actually review every complaint against the Code of Conduct and Terms of Use to determine whether the complaint is accurate. We DO NOT take action based off the number of complaints, or how often people complain in a given day. All complaints we get into the system against a Gamertag or content are reduced to one so that our agents merely review the content against...

Rumor: 360 Spring Update has Motion Sensor & Game Installs?

50°
324w ago - If Microsoft follows the same schedule it did last year, the Spring system update for the Xbox 360 should be right around the corner.

Today, an alleged and wholly unconfirmed list of changes included in the "Q2 2008" update was sent to us, supposedly forwarded from an internal source. The full list features about 80 new feature additions, tweaks and changes but was purported to be incomplete and subject to change.

Some are simply interesting as curiosities, such as an option to purchase Xbox Live memberships for charities and the addition of a Media section for audio delivered through feeds, such as podcasts. Others sound more feature robust, such as Windows Live Mail integration and an expanded "Inside Xbox" with news, weather, entertainment, help and community features.

Perhaps the most interesting additions are "Calibration options for motion sensor devices" for the Dashboard and "Support for titles to store installation data on Storage Device for faster loading" for Games. If true, the former would lend further credibility to frequent rumors that Microsoft is planning to introduce a motion controller for the Xbox 360.

The ability to store installation data on a hard drive–as is done with some PlayStation 3 games–would certainly be a welcome option, if that's how the wording...
