The PC line up is disappointing for 2008 and it really doesn't seem like they have anything announced for 2009.

E3 is coming up so you may wonder, what can Microsoft announce for either PC or Xbox 360? Here's a list of their franchise's that could see a possible future.

Kung Fu Chaos

322w ago - Why do we get the feeling this movie is probably going to suck? Oh, I know, maybe because the first released images of the Tekken film look anything but promising.

According to IMDB.com, MMA star Cung Le has been casted to play Tekken veteran Marshall Law. The first image of him in costume has been posted on his myspace page, which you can view below.

Also, additional images have been released by Tekken Corp, including the first look at Jin Kazama. You can view the entire gallery here.

Wii Live's Top 5 Things Nintendo should Announce at E3

50°
322w ago - E3 is getting closer and closer. And as much as most people want it to die, I really hope it stays alive. To me, E3 was the place and time where it would be megatons after megatons of gaming announcements, and nothing could be more nostalgic than constant announcements from your favorite gaming company.

There are only so many things that Nintendo could announce at this coming E3 that would really help out Wii. Here is Wii Live's Top 5 Things Nintendo should announce at E3. Sorry for the long title.

5. More channels that are actually useful.

Nintendo finally released the Nintendo Channel in the US, which is actually a pretty useful channel. But why just have one? The Wii could really use some extra features, and although it has things like the Weather Channel, the News Channel, and the Check Mii Out channel, how many people actually use those? I mean, I would use the weather channel if it updated more often and if it had the city I live in, which the closest city it has is 30 minutes away from me.

You may have already read Wii Live's Top 5 Channel Idea's. And if you haven't, there is a nice link for you. Just go ahead and pick one any one of those channels. I would pick the Demo Channel. Who knows, maybe even the long awaited Music Channel will get a launch date!
 

Report: Customer Service, RRoD, Pirates kill Xbox 360 in India

50°
322w ago - Microsoft is now winding up operations in several cities in India, as trouble seems to be brewing over the performance of its Xbox 360 console, according to a report from CNBC-TV18.

The report, which cited anonymous sources, concludes that Microsoft has withdrawn from several Tier-I cities due to lackluster sales. Its Entertainment and Devices Division has also reportedly withdrawn the marketing budget for the current fiscal.

The Xbox 360, which launched in India in September of 2006, has been facing dismal sales already due to sloppy customer support, high hardware failure, and pirated games, the report said. Games are easily available in the grey market for Rs 100, while official titles cost upwards of Rs 2,500.

Microsoft has already repeatedly refused to share its India sales numbers.

"The Microsoft Entertainment Devices Division is very much on track with its targeted business plans," a Microsoft India spokesperson told CNBC.

This comes as Microsoft's gaming division took a hit back in March of this year, as Mohit Anand, Country Manager, Microsoft Entertainment and Devices Division, put in his papers.

Ashim Mathur, Marketing Head, Entertainment and Devices Division, Microsoft India, is also slated to leave the company. However, when contacted...
 

MGS4 Limited Edition PS3 Bundle Ordering A Huge Disaster

200°
322w ago - Update: It appears that Konami may have dropped the $500 insurance charge and that pre-orders have temporarily ceased. The Konami online store asks customers to "Please check back tomorrow (May 20, 2008), when we will make available more stock for pre-orders."

One might think that after the registration disaster that was the Metal Gear Online beta sign up process that Konami would be well prepared for the pre-ordering onslaught that awaited them today.

Surprisingly, it wasn't, resulting in what can be be described as a clusterfuck of massive proportions as many gamers attempted to order their Metal Gear Solid 4 limited edition PlayStation 3 bundle.

In addition to tacking on a $500 insurance charge–which we're told is mandatory and refundable, though we can't confirm right now–we've yet to read of a single successful check out for the "gun metal" version of the console. As of right now, the Konami store is throwing a 503 error, most likely due to the heavy volume of MGS4 fans trying desperately to buy their PS3s.

Anyone out there lucky enough to secure one yet? Thanks to the many tipsters who sent this one in.
