Xbox 360 starting to show its (R)AGE

200°
316w ago - The differences in PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware capabilities have been debated since the dawn of next-gen, but has the Xbox 360 finally revealed its Achilles heel?

John Carmack of id Software states that the PS3 version of the upcoming cross-platform first person shooter RAGE will look better than the Xbox 360 version of the game. Carmack was quick to add that the reason for the inferior look of the Xbox 360 is a storage problem and not associated with a lack of hardware power.

Despite the obvious oversight of the Xbox 360's DVD drive being a hardware component that is lacking in power (when compared to the Blu-ray drive of the PS3), RAGE's humbling of the consoles hardware abilities raises some doubts for Microsoft's next-gen console. Although at least a year from release, RAGE is not alone in its need for more than a single disc on the Xbox 360. Games such as Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey have already utilised multiple DVD's, with the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII following suit.

Up until now, there has been no trade-off between multiple discs and the graphical power of the Xbox 360, but RAGE demands attention in this area. Carmack claims that id Software will have to use a "different type of compression" for the Xbox 360 version of the game in order to fit it onto two discs....

Study shows PS3 Gamers are Buying Movies too

316w ago - A new consumer survey from ABI Research has revealed that while there is a widespread reluctance for consumers to commit to a Blu-ray player in the near future.

ABI Research say that there is a bright spot, however, with the PS3 "rapidly becoming a favorite for hard-core gamers and so the installed base of sockets for Blu-ray discs continues to climb."

To quote: "While you might think gamers purchase fewer movie discs that others, we didn't see any significant evidence of that in our results," said an ABI rep.

"PS3 console shipments will go a long way to help bring down manufacturing costs and drive down Blu-ray player prices."
 

How would you like Wireless HDTV on your Sony PS3?

500°
318w ago - Reports indicate that Sony, Samsung, Hitachi, Motrola and more specialists have teamed up to form a joint industry development body to bring out a Wireless Home Digital Interface.

What this will allow is secure encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and then some with less than one millisecond latency.

One member commented "If you have a TV in the home, that TV will be able to access any source in the home, whether it's a set-top box in the living room, or the PlayStation in the bedroom, or a DVD player in another bedroom."





To quote: What the flip is WHDI? Well, according to the Israel-based Amimon company on whose technology the standard is to be based, "A key ingredient of WHDI technology is a revolutionary video-modem that operates in the 5GHz unlicensed band to enable robust wireless delivery of uncompressed HD video (including 1080p).

"WHDI allows secure, encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and other potential signal obstructions, such as people and furniture, while maintaining superb quality and robustness with less than one-millisecond latency."

Sitting on the board of Amimon is Dr. David Lee, the founder of the HDMI standard, so this looks like more than hot air.
