November NPD: Best month ever for retail, Xbox

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2448 days, 5 hours, 3 minutes ago
Friday, December 10, 2010 8:44:36 AM GMT
November is traditionally a big, big month for games, thanks to the impending holidays and the temporary financial insanity bestowed upon Americans by the Black Friday Effect. This November may have been the biggest. The NPD reports that last month was the "best November on record in terms of new physical retail sales," ahead of November 2008 by around $30 million. Call of Duty: Black Ops had the biggest first month of any game ever, with 8.4 million copies. (more)

Okay, Test Drive Unlimited 2. We get it, alright? Your game is set in a remarkably beautiful, peninsular world that our real-life salaries will never allow us to inhabit. You don't have to keep rubbing our nose in that fact with your every trailer, including the gorgeous video posted below. (more)

XtendPlay extends your Xbox 360 or PS3 controller, vertically

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2455 days, 3 hours, 27 minutes ago
Friday, December 03, 2010 10:20:17 AM GMT
Your Xbox or PS3 controller is okay the way it is ... but it could be so much more boogie board-shaped. The XtendPlay attachment adds a big block of foam to the bottom of your controller, apparently to both make your grip on your controller more comfortable and allow you to rest the whole thing in your lap more easily. Or something. (more)

Kinect hacked into Super Mario Bros. emulator controller

Monday, November 29, 2010 9:06:45 AM GMT
YouTube user Yankeyan recently showed off one of the cleverest Kinect hacks we've seen to date: He's managed to use the motion-sensing gadget to control Super Mario Bros. 1 - 3 on an NES emulator. Well, he kind of controls it. We've never seen anyone work so hard to grab that first mushroom before. (more)

Sega resets Sonic 4's leaderboards due to cheating

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2460 days, 2 hours, 44 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:03:18 AM GMT
Look, Sonic the Hedgehog is fast. He can run faster than the speed of sound, but even if he ran full speed through Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1's shortest level, it would still take him longer than 0'00"00 to do it. That's just physically impossible, even for an improbably proportioned and colored hedgehog. And since some hackers have posted those times and impossible scores on the game's Xbox 360 leaderboards, Sega has decided to go through and reset the whole thing. (more)

If you didn't manage to snag a PSP "3-Game Digital Pack" at your local retailer yesterday, Amazon's offer of a $150 PSP Go -- lasting until "Cyber Monday" -- should help mend your broken heart. If Sony's digital-only handheld doesn't get you going, perhaps the site's other Cyber Monday deals will? You can find all the specifics after the break. (more)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer update on PS3 today, other versions shortly

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2464 days, 3 hours, 47 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:00:15 AM GMT
hile Battlefield: Bad Company 2 soldiers wait for VIP Map Pack 7 and -- more importantly -- a Vietnam release date, it appears that a much-welcomed update to the game's multiplayer is coming to consoles. You'll recall that a version of the patch was released for PC last month. Included in the multiplayer patch are several needed tweaks, the most important of which is the 50 percent weapon damage reduction to MCOM stations so the device doesn't detonate instantly thanks to the ol' "C4 on UAV" exploit.

Looking to expand your DJ Hero 2 and/or Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock catalogues at a significant discount?

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 9:54:16 AM GMT
Good news: Microsoft has plans to offer Kinect development tools to XNA developers. Confirmation comes via Xbox director of incubation Alex Kipman, who said during an interview on Talk of the Nation that, while there's no current Kinect functionality in XNA, it's something Microsoft "will support in the future." Honestly, we're thrilled -- haven't you seen some of the awesome stuff people are coming up with ... without the proper toolset? (more)

You will not be taken for a ride by a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 demo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2464 days, 3 hours, 59 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 9:48:32 AM GMT
We're pretty sure if we were given only a handful of characters and stages from Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds in a free trial, we could stretch out our enjoyment of it for an awfully long time. We won't get the opportunity, however: In a recent post on the Capcom Unity forums, VP of Strategic Planning Christian Svensson confirmed to anticipatory fans that, "As with Street Fighter IV, there will be no demo of MvC3."

Catherine trailer is concerned with your well-being

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2465 days, 6 hours ago
Tuesday, November 23, 2010 7:46:59 AM GMT
"You've been weird lately." Katherine (with a K) notices that much about protagonist Vincent, at least, in this Catherine trailer (after the break). Whether she understands the context -- that he's being pursued by a mysterious woman (Catherine with a C) and also dreaming of turning into a sheep monster every night -- is unclear. (more)

Microsoft: I'm a PC, and Kinect open-source drivers were my idea

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2465 days, 6 hours, 36 minutes ago
Tuesday, November 23, 2010 7:11:31 AM GMT
When word first reached Microsoft that the open-source community would hack the Kinect, the company's response was pretty heavy-handed: "Microsoft does not condone the modification of its products," a rep told CNET, pledging to "work closely with law enforcement and product safety groups to keep Kinect tamper-resistant." But now that Kinect mods blow our minds on a near-daily basis, Redmond has changed its tone. (more)

Beginning with a NeoGAF thread and followed up by Giant Bomb and VG247, comes rumor that Activision is closing Bizarre Creations, the studio behind the just-released Bond title Bloodstone. It was responsible for Blur, The Club, the Project Gotham Racing series, and downloadable favorite Geometry Wars. The studio, founded in 1994, was acquired by Activision just over three years ago.

Shift 2 Unleashed loses 'Need for Speed' and adds Hot Pursuit's Autolog

What better day to announce a new entry in a long-standing franchise than the release date for what is, arguably, the best installment in the series to date. Today, on Need for Speed Hot Pursuit's big day, EA has stolen some of that thunder by announcing Shift 2 Unleashed, the sequel to last year's simulation-style installment. (more)

Hack turns Kinect into 3D video capture too

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2471 days, 4 hours, 22 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 17, 2010 9:25:12 AM GMT
We all knew this would inevitably happen, but seeing it in action is something else -- the Kinect transformed by the power of open-source drivers into a true 3D video camera for capturing oneself. UC Davis visualization researcher Oliver Kreylos fed the streams from his peripheral's infrared and color cameras into a custom program that interpolated and reconstructed the result, generating a mildly mindblowing 3D virtual reality environment he can manipulate at will.
