Microsoft's updated Xbox 360 consoles using "Jasper" 65nm process GPU chips are believed to be finally shipping. Initially expected in August, the freshly fettled console - which requires less power and, it's hoped, offers more reliability - has been identified via its new power supply, with a different connector and reduced output (down 25W to 150W).
Blizzard president, Mike Morhaime may have just stoked the fire about their upcoming game, Diablo 3. While it was expected this game would only appear on PCs, we're now hearing buzz it might be released on consoles as well.
Recently at BlizzCon, Morhaime spoke about the game and how each game at Blizzard includes a discussion of appropriate platforms. He said, "As Diablo 3 takes shape, I think we'll do an evaluation. I think there is a pretty good argument to be made that that type of game might work very well on consoles. There might be some technical limitations though that we might need to get past."
There are a lot of gamers out there that only want the latest and greatest first-person shooters or epic releases, but others love to look back fondly at the classics that got us to this point. For those, there is Mega Man 9.
Capcom has just announced the North American release dates for Mega Man 9 and regardless of your console preference, you should be covered within the next two weeks or so.
Japan is completely sold out of Xbox 360 consoles. The unexpected shortage is attributed to the recently released game Tales of Vesperia, which caused Xbox 360 sales to spike in the country.
People interested in technology and home entertainment like to get their hands on the latest, greatest products. Before, it was all about having the top of the line DVD player, receiver and speaker system. And though those things still hold serious importance, there’s one product type that seems destined to swoop in on the home entertainment market. I’m talking about next-gen gaming consoles, the XBox 360 and PS3, in particular.
There are some things that just make a person feel very patriotic. One of the big reasons why I love the US is because we don't get screwed on release dates like some countries. Sure, Japan got Super Smash Bros. Brawl a month before we did, big deal. That's nothing to the wait Europe has for most titles. If rumors are to be believed, some European rockers may have to wait until September before getting their Rock Band on.
I'm the proud owner of an Xbox 360, however, I wouldn't ever consider myself to be a fanboy. I also own a PS2 and a Gamecube which still see action. There are plenty of dedicated fanboys out there, and this shoe is for them.
Heelys has created a new shoe specifically for hardcore Xbox 360 gamers. It really looks like someone dropped a 360 controller onto the conveyor belt and some machine smashed it into the sole of the shoe.
