To quote: You might be wondering why it's XeDEV who are releasing this.. Since some people left the team, they don't want to retain the "freexex" name anymore. Also changed the name to XeXMenu (this is because XeXLoader is now much more of a menu than just a loader). So enjoy the new stuff :
- Gametitle extraction from NXEART if possible (toggle)
- Games with more than just one XEX will show up multiple times
* Embedded FTP Server to transfer your stuff directly from your computer
- Use xbox:xbox@ip:21
* Use FTP to read/write/delete your onboard flash
- Only user flash/flash is able to do that!
* Support for all found XEX files. Not just default.xex (toggle)
* Shows the content of any GAMES folder on any device
- Use GAMES, APPLICATIONS, EMULATORS for auto discovery menu on each device
* Switch between games/apps/emus in the discovery menu using RB/LB
* Auto scale skins for most...
209w ago - I was looking on ebay for a DS and noticed at the bottom of a listing "most watched" and came across this gem. I then googled it and found a video (below) and write up on this device.
To quote: The modding community has been quite active improving old game consoles. I'm such a fan of the Nintendo 64 that the latest mod of the venerable console was just too cool to pass up.
Dubbed the N64Mini, the portable Nintendo 64 device from modder Zenloc features the familiar Nintendo 64 controller buttons (minus the D-pad, unfortunately) in a nicely compact package. Users can place their Nintendo 64 cartridges in the back of the device to play some of their favorite games.
According to the device's developer, the N64Mini runs on a 4-cell battery and comes with a charger. It also features a headphone jack and an A/V out port for those who want to play the title on a display that's a little larger. It even comes with built-in brightness controls.
But here's the best part: the N64Mini is available now on eBay. Bidding ends in five days, but so far, 44 bids have been placed. The price is at $555 at the time of this writing. I obviously haven't...
215w ago - Update: Microsoft's MajorNelson has now officially confirmed the bans.
This Halloween it appears Microsoft has pulled a TRICK with no TREAT on modified XBox 360 console owners... specifically, mass bans have been initiated against them.
IGN (linked above) have confirmed this news, to quote: "We have taken action against a small percentage of consoles that have been modified to play pirated game discs," a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN.
"In line with our commitment to combat piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox LIVE community, we are suspending these modded consoles from Xbox LIVE."
Though Microsoft wouldn't confirm specifically when these bannings took place, a quick look over on its official forums suggest it's been going on over the course of this past week.
Plenty of users have created threads on the technical feedback forum reporting of having their Xbox 360 console banned.

224w ago - How is Windows 7 PC gaming better than Windows Vista gaming?
The Windows 7 64 bit edition seems to handle the 64 bit technology better than both Windows XP x64 and Windows Vista x64.
It seems to do this so well that even the 32 bit programs have extra room to breathe because the system resources and other background programs are able to run in an efficient 64 bit environment.
This is ironic, because many people were under the impression that Windows 7 gaming would not be as good because Windows 7 64 bit would need to use a 32 bit emulator to run 32 bit programs.
That was the case with Windows Vista gaming when you were running Windows Vista x64, but Windows 7 x64 seems to have overcome this problem.
One of other things that people may be worry about when it comes to Windows 7 gaming is compatibility. They want to be assured that they will actually be able to play the game. The good thing about this is that many of the games were designed with Windows 7 gaming compatibility in mind.
Windows 7 is built from Windows Vista so you should not have to worry about Windows 7 gaming compatibility. Windows Vista is compatible with all of the latest games beyond Windows XP.
Finally, Windows 7 was built to be compatible with older software and hardware...
