No 'new Xbox' talk at E3, Microsoft says

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2077 days, 5 hours, 51 minutes ago
Friday, March 16, 2012 6:55:45 AM GMT
Having held the top NPD spot for the past 14 months straight -- and with the introduction of Kinect -- the old Xbox 360 still has some life in it yet. "For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360," Xbox spokesperson and Group Manager of PR David Dennis told Bloomberg. "There will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon." (more)

Microsoft Research Shows Transparent 3D OLED With Kinect

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2081 days, 4 hours, 16 minutes ago
Monday, March 12, 2012 8:31:12 AM GMT
The foundation of Microsoft's interactive display is a transparent 3D OLED supplied by Samsung. Other than traditional Kinect interactions, however, the display creates a 3D scenario behind the screen. The user reaches to the back of the screen to interact with the shown objects. This may not be the most convenient 3D technology and reminiscent of an environment similar to a biology research lab, but it is the most impressive demonstration of a transparent OLED we have seen to date.

GDC: Fallout worked too well to be certified by Microsoft

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2084 days, 4 hours, 12 minutes ago
Friday, March 09, 2012 8:34:49 AM GMT
My favorite session at GDC this week so far has been Tim Cain's postmortem on Fallout. A little while ago, I relayed a story about how a licensing issue nearly killed the game and forced a two-week re-write of the entire game's code. But another anecdote from Cain about dealing with Microsoft's certification process really tickled my funny bone. (more)

Tony Hawk says Ride was 'a bit rushed,' still thinks critics didn't give his board a chance

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2084 days, 4 hours, 18 minutes ago
Friday, March 09, 2012 8:28:35 AM GMT
Even after all this time, Tony Hawk's stance is firm regarding the poorly received Shred and Ride games. He thinks critics made up their mind before giving the games and associated peripheral an honest chance -- even in the case of Ride, which he admits "was a bit rushed" due to time spent prototyping the board.

Rainbow 6: Patriots retains gritty story after team change

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2084 days, 4 hours, 19 minutes ago
Friday, March 09, 2012 8:28:05 AM GMT
When Ubisoft confirmed that the creative director of Rainbow 6: Patriots, David Sears, had been replaced by Jean-Sebastien Decant, natural assumption was that it was over the title's morally ambiguous storyline. That's not quite the case, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat told Game Informer. (more)

Dirt 3 Complete Edition enters the race March 20

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2084 days, 4 hours, 20 minutes ago
Friday, March 09, 2012 8:26:47 AM GMT
The Dirt 3 Complete Edition officially launches March 20 in North America, running (or racing) $40 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows. The Complete Edition contains more than $30 of additional content, which by our calculations means you're getting a 5,000 percent increase in value. Again, that's by our calculations, and we never said we were very good at mathing. (more)

OnLive in Trouble for Violating Microsoft's Windows License?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2084 days, 4 hours, 26 minutes ago
Friday, March 09, 2012 8:21:04 AM GMT
here's no question that streaming a hosted Windows 7 environment to an iPad or Android tablet is a cool thing, especially when it comes packed with pre-installed Office apps. But now there's talk that OnLive may not have acquired the appropriate licenses to provide a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) environment on tablets using Microsoft's products. (more)

Assassin's Creed 3 is still a long ways off -- we know, we know. GameStop is more than happy to take your pre-order cash early, of course, but the retailer is also offering the very pretty placeholder box seen above and in our gallery below. Not too shabby! (more)

PSA: ME3 on the 360 can't import ME2 saves in (or transferred by) the cloud

Sunday, March 04, 2012 8:19:06 AM GMT
Despite Mass Effect 3's impressive mastery of the atmosphere, it still can't quite handle clouds. EA is "aware of an issue" that prevents Mass Effect 2 save files that either exist in the cloud, or were transferred to a new 360 through the cloud, from being imported into ME3. (more)

Persona 4 Arena's release window narrowed to August 2012

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2089 days, 4 hours, 31 minutes ago
Sunday, March 04, 2012 8:15:59 AM GMT
Persona 4 Arena, Atlus and Arc System Works' confrontational extension of the Persona universe, was announced two weeks ago with a rather vague "summer" release window for its North American launch on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Apparently that meant "the tail end of summer," as Atlus has specified a slightly more specific August, 2012 window on the PlayStation Blog. (more)

Windows 8 May Have Longer List of SKUs After All

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2089 days, 5 hours, 8 minutes ago
Sunday, March 04, 2012 7:38:42 AM GMT
Earlier this week, we reported that Windows 8 may have fewer SKUs than Windows Vista and Windows 7. The evidence was discovered within revision notes for the Alcor Micro Smart Card Reader Driver located on HP's website, listing a mere three Windows 8 "client" SKUs (or six if you count the 32-bit and 64-bit versions separately).

Windows 8 Consumer Preview hits one million downloads in a day

Friday, March 02, 2012 8:54:11 AM GMT
How pumped are consumers about the release of a Windows 8 preview that they can call their own? Quite, according the million downloads the build has marked in just a day. That number comes from Microsoft's Building Windows Twitter account -- of course, it's important to note that the number doesn't necessarily mean one million individuals downloaded Consumer Preview. Still, not bad for a day's work. (more)

Friday, March 02, 2012 8:18:21 AM GMT
With the Wii U all official and set to launch later this year, we're constantly sniffing for information on the next generation Xbox and PlayStation. The latest rumors regarding the former say that the console is codenamed Durango. GameSpot points to a Twitter posting from a technical artist at Crytek (first spotted by a NeoGAF user) that implies the console is a topic of conversation of a developers' summit in London. (more)
