200°
345w ago - NVIDIA has extended its SLI technology, allowing up to three GeForce graphics cards to be used in one machine - delivering up to 2.8 times the performance of a single GPU system.

If you've ever wanted to run Crysis at 2560–1600 with 8x AA and all the DirectX 10 effects enabled, this is the way to do it - although it'll cost you a pretty penny. You'll need a NVIDIA nForce 850 SLI MCP motherboard to start, then three GeForce 8800 GTX or 8800 Ultra cards to get the ultimate money-is-no-object gaming rig.

Microsoft Releases Xbox 360 HD DVD Emulator

345w ago - Microsoft Corp. today announced the release of the Xbox 360 HD DVD Emulator, enabling film studios and disc authoring companies to model the behavior of HD DVD disc content, including encoded video and HDi interactivity, in a virtual environment before committing to burning a single HD DVD disc.

This comprehensive tool is among the first commercially available, software-based solutions of its kind, eliminating the need for expensive hardware or time-consuming and costly trial-and-error processes for testing HD DVD titles, helping to ensure that titles ship error-free.

The enhanced content and rich interactive capabilities of HD DVD increase the need for an efficient way to troubleshoot coding to maintain the highest-quality consumer experiences. The emulator uses a combination of available hardware (the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player) and specialized emulation software to ultimately enable playback of near-final assets from a network storage share, portable hard drive or optical disc.

This allows focused testing of the layout, the menus, and the behavior of the interactivity functionality of a title. Detailed log reports from the Xbox 360 HD DVD Emulator deliver valuable tracing information to help quickly and easily pinpoint problems with advanced...

Assassin's Creed slaughters records as well as bad guys

345w ago - Ubisoft announced some remarkable results today.

Assassin's Creed is now officially the fastest-selling new video game IP in the US, ever. Ubisoft have already shifted over 2.5 million units worldwide on both the PS3 and the Xbox 360, and they have increased their original sales estimate for 2007/2008 from three to five million units of the game as a result.

The net result is that Ubisoft have raised their expectations across the business and are reporting they will clear an additional €15m in sales revenue.

It will be interesting to see how other Ubisoft titles do next year in comparison. With the likes of Haze and Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway on the way, there's a good deal of decent titles to come from Ubisoft in the New Year...
