Wii Photo Channel Drops MP3s

334w ago - New December update will replace MP3 with AAC support; small interface tweaks, too.
Nintendo is planning an optional update to its Wii Photo Channel this December which will, if downloaded, replace MP3-music playback compatibility with support of the AAC audio format. In addition, gamers will be able to personalize their Wii Menu by replacing the Photo Channel icon with a digital picture of their own.

Writes Nintendo on its official website: "Consumers with MP3 compatible Photo Channels will have the option of updating their Photo Channel to version 1.1, which replaces MP3 compatibility with the ability to play AAC files. AAC files provide a greater sound quality than an MP3 of the same size. This new compatibility will work with MP4 audio files in the .m4a format. Additionally, you can now choose to have the songs play back in a random order."

Any Wii consoles sold after December will automatically feature the latest version of Photo Channel. Gamers who already own the console will have the option to install the new update.

"Please note that once the Photo Channel has been updated to version 1.1, the channel will no longer be able to play MP3 format music files," writes Nintendo. However, this update will not have any bearing on in-game playback of MP3 music. "Wii games that currently...

Dead or Alive 3 joins Xbox download list

334w ago - Dead or Alive 3 seems set to be one the first original Xbox games to be made available to download over Xbox Live, according to the PEGI website.

According to the latest ratings published by the pan-European age rating board, Team Ninja's beat-'em-up has been listed as an online game (essentially, one that requires an internet connection in order to access it - which includes downloadable games), and has been cleared for ages 16 and above.

Last week, Microsoft announced that as of 5 December, Xbox Live users would be able to download original Xbox games from the Marketplace. Although neither Microsoft nor Tecmo have confirmed that Dead or Alive 3 will be one of these games, the fact it's been rated by PEGI alongside Fuzion Frenzy (which will be among the first wave of downloadable Xbox titles) is a very strong indicator that it's coming very soon.

Despite not being in quite the same league as Virtua Fighter 5, Dead or Alive 3 was still a decent beat-'em-up. Better still, asides from some ropey FMV, there are few compatibility issues on the 360.

Whether you'd want to spend the equivalent of a tenner in Microsoft points on it when you could probably fish it out of a bargain bin for a fraction of that is another matter, but either way, you'll at least have the option.

Update: Microsoft Starts New Ban Wave on LIVE Against Modified Firmware

334w ago - UPDATE: It appears that modified fw is NOT being detected, and is instead once again due to 'bad' discs. Keep in mind that the only full proof way to make a 1:1 backup is to do it yourself. iXtreme is as fullproof as it can be, in that it validates everything it possibly can from a firmware point of view, but a game can have slight data change somewhere, most commonly in DMI. Or it can be due to early copies being watermarked so to speak.

This is why you run the risk of being banned on xbox live if you pirate games. Always remember that you run a risk doing such actions.

In regards to game data being properly validated, xdvdmulleter is a tool that has a constantly maintained database to validate backups against retail copies to ensure full stealth. If you have a samsung SH-D16x and would like to contribute to the project to prevent future Live bans.

It looks like Microsoft started a new wave of bans against modified DVD firmwares or DVD+/-R DL discs.

Several users on our forums and on IRC report their Xbox 360 has been banned from LIVE today. We get reports of Toshiba-Samsung and Hitachi-LG drives banned with both Xtreme and even the newer iXtreme firmwares. However we also see many reports of people who are currently on LIVE and have no been banned (yet). No reports of banned...
