New XBox Experience - What You Want to Know: Final Countdown

50°
302w ago - Come Wednesday, your Xbox 360 world will change and we can't wait to hear what you think.

There is only one thing we haven't showed you yet, and that is how to get the New Xbox Experience next Wednesday.

It's easy but in case you're having panic attacks and want to know every detail of the prompts you go through, check out a video that our own Major Nelson created below:





You've checked in with us every Friday for weeks to learn about all of the features coming with the New Xbox Experience, like how to create an Avatar and how you can play with your Avatars in games.

We've shown you how you will have your very own video library of more than 12,000 streaming films and TV episodes with Netflix and how searching for Themes, map packs, movies, TV shows and other downloadable content will be even easier in the all-new Xbox LIVE Marketplace (which you can now access from the Web!).

We've talked about playing from the hard drive, decreasing load times and noise from the spinning disc in tray. We showed you the Community Games channel and talked about how everyone can become an Xbox 360 developer.

You've explored the new Premium Themes and Friends Channel and checked out how the Gamercard, Gamerscore...
 

New XBox Experience: What You Want to Know - More Avatars

50°
304w ago - So, you've made your avatar and now you're wondering what to do with it. When the New Xbox Experience launches on Nov. 19, four existing Xbox LIVE Arcade games will be updated to include Avatar functionality to make your gaming even more personal.

Join your friends and play UNO!, Bomberman Live, Hardwood Hearts and Hardwood Spades and watch your Avatar come to life with custom animations throughout game menus and lobbies. On top of that, a new Xbox LIVE Arcade title will also launch with fully playable in-game Avatars - the first title to ever launch with this feature on Xbox 360! (Stay tuned for more info about this game in the coming weeks).

In addition to Xbox LIVE Arcade, Scene It? Box Office Smash will also incorporate your Avatar into gameplay. The game released on Oct. 28 - it will get a title update on Nov. 19 that will allow you to use your new Avatar.





Want to learn more about Avatars? Check out Major Nelson's interview with Stacey Law and Scott Brodie from the team bringing them to you.

As always, keep your eyes peeled to this space to learn more about the NXE. There's just a couple of weeks to go!
 

Everything you need to know about the next XBox

313w ago - Will Microsoft launch its next-gen Xbox in 2011? There have been a couple of articles recently that have speculated on just that. We look at whether the 'Xbox 720' will feature a return to Intel chips, the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive, and more storage than you can ever fill.

A PlayStation 4 and potential 'Xbox 720' could arrive as early as 2011, estimates Crytek president and CEO Cevat Yerli. Industry analyst Colin Sebastian agrees, suggesting that "the general consensus amongst industry professionals is that a new generation of home consoles will arrive on the market in 2011 or 2012."

Terabyte storage for the Xbox 720?

We've already speculated about what Microsoft might be planning for its third Xbox - 16 or 32 processing cores (including onboard graphics), 8GB of DDR memory, broadband connectivity and a hard disk that delivers terabytes rather than gigabytes of storage space.

More storage is a given - Microsoft has recently launched the 60GB Xbox 360 Pro, while Sony has rolled out a 160GB PlayStation 3. Both consoles are trying to sell themselves as digital hubs and any future Xbox is going to need a huge amount of space to store downloadable movies and TV shows, demos and Live Arcade games. A 60GB hard drive is nowhere near big enough.

Nehalem Pictured - Known as Core i7

50°
313w ago - We had a chance to take a picture of a fully operational Nehalem, Bloomfield sample at 3.2GHz.

We managed to take the picture from both sides, and we can tell that the chip looks pretty much like any other Intel chip.

The socket 1366 has pins while the CPU doesn't. This baby will be known as Core i7.

Enough said, here is the real deal.
 

The Five Things You Need to Know About Legendary

320w ago - The 10-Cent Tour: Griffins and werewolves have invaded modern-day New York City, and all that stands between you and a Game Over screen is your shotgun and your magic hand. Can Gamecock's first FPS survive in a post-BioShock world?

1. You play through the game as a thief known as Deckard. Like Cher, Deckard apparently only goes by the one name. Deckard/you break into a museum after hours to steal, and during his thievery, he inadvertently opens Pandora's Box, unleashing all sorts of things he'll have to shoot.

2. Though the frame rate chugged at times, the game features destruction on an epic scale. Buildings crumble around you. Cabs sail over your head. So much crap is exploding around you in the game's early levels that you'll often have trouble figuring out where to go next. Confused? Lost? Click the left analog stick and a faint indicator will appear on-screen, telling you what direction you need to be heading in. (Thanks, clever developers!)

3. From what we could tell, weapons are all pretty standard-issue: You've got shotguns, pistols, assault rifles, etc. But your left hand is apparently good for more than just pleasuring yourself. During our demo, while being attacked by a griffin during a cut scene, the left hand fended off the beast by sending some fiery magic at its beak.
