Xbox 360 DRM Tool Released, Transfer Digital Content Licenses

50°
339w ago - Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb brings word that the Xbox 360 DRM transfer tool is now available. This allows folks to transfer digitally purchased content between any two Xbox 360 units – useful if you have purchased a new 360.

The simple two-step transaction can be performed only once in a twelve month period. Additionally, rented movies cannot be transferred, according to the Major.

In case you're wondering, you probably won't need to use the DRM tool if you've sent in your 360 for repair, as Microsoft automatically transfers over licenses from your purchased content as part of the repair process.

More details can be found at the link above!
 

Panel: Why User-Generated Content Matters for Games

50°
340w ago - With YouTube disruptive to the movie and TV industries, a panel at the recent Social Gaming Summit, including Daniel James (Puzzle Pirates) and Cary Rosenzweig (IMVU) looked at the idea that that the games industry should understand user generated content before it's too late, with the intriguing proposition that game developers should think virtual "spaces" not virtual "worlds."

"The more tools that you provide can lead to richer behavior, but often it's the simpler things that people enjoy most," began Daniel James, CEO of Three Rings. "As designing games constraints can lead you to designing better games, constrained environments can lead to more fun."

"The simplest games are the ones everybody can join in and play," expanded Ted Rheingold, founder of Dogster and Catster.

Cary Rosenzwieg, the president and CEO of IMVU, described their take on user-generated content. "Almost 100% of the content in IMVU is user-generated. They have collectively created the world's largest catalog of virtual items."

"Much like eBay, we introduced buyers and sellers within the game, and last year we estimate our top developer made $1 million in income, and our top 10 made over $100,000 each. We've never issued a press release in our history and people have come primarily through word-of-mouth."
 

Sony: Qore won't affect availability of great content on PSN

50°
343w ago - A Qore introduction video is available below, and Sony rep amurphy has already responded to some of the angry comments on its US Blog about its monthly lifestyle gaming program 'Qore'.

One comment asked if demos were going to be exclusive to Qore from now on, or if they will still be free. Sony replied: "If you purchase Qore, you will have access to exclusive content that would not be available otherwise - it does not impact the availability of the great content found on PSN, nor does it change our free play model."

The response probably won't mean much to most people who feel they are basically taking stuff that would have been free normally and charging for it.



 

X-Box 360: Buy All Of Your Content a Second Time

50°
343w ago - Reader Mac's X-Box 360 was out of warranty when it broke, so he decided to buy a new one thinking he could just transfer his old hard drive to the new X-Box.

Sadly, no matter what he tries he can't get his content to work properly on the new machine. He called Microsoft to see if they could help him out (after all they do this sort of transfer all the time for people whose boxes are replaced under warranty), but Microsoft's only answer was "buy all your content a second time."

Hi guys, not sure if you're interested in putting this sort of thing on your site anymore, but I've had my own problems with Microsoft, the 360 and their support.

In a sentence, I called their support after replacing my busted 360, and their response to my question as to why I can't access most of my content either online or offline from my old hard drive anymore was "Can't help you, sorry. Buy all of the content a second time."

Now here's the long version: I was kindly greeted by Alex, the automated system guy (I've never seen any company give theirs a name), then transferred over to a man who I believe went by the name "Jeeves" (at least that's what it sounded like to me through the accent).

After a bit of friendly banter and him asking me for a whole bunch of different information,...
