posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2065 days, 14 hours, 6 minutes ago
Sunday, February 26, 2012 8:50:29 AM GMT
Five screenshots and a stylish advert for Mass Effect 3's day-one "From Ashes" DLC pack have surfaced on GameStop's Facebook account, and while we're not entirely positive that the pack's contents are indeed spoilerific, we feel that it's better the err on the side of caution. To that end, we've totally hidden the identities of the characters in the above screenshot, and tucked the rest away in the gallery below. (more)

Microsoft Launches 'Smoked by Windows Phone' Campaign

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2066 days, 13 hours, 21 minutes ago
Saturday, February 25, 2012 9:35:13 AM GMT
If you can cast your mind back as far as CES in January, you might remember Microsoft's little Windows Phone marketing stunt that saw the company challenge smartphone owners to a little cell phone quick draw. The idea was to race two phones, one Windows Phone and the other not, and see which of them could perform a specific task the fastest. Microsoft was offering $100 to anyone who could beat a Windows Phone. The losers? They had to go on camera and admit that their phone "got smoked by a Windows Phone." (more)

PSA: Xbox Live color playback issue patched

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2074 days, 14 hours, 21 minutes ago
Friday, February 17, 2012 8:34:51 AM GMT
Xbox users may have noticed a mandatory patch preempting their power-up procedures today, the effects of which were either immediately apparent or completely unnoticeable, depending on whether a certain color display issue had reared its head. The patch doesn't apply to apps, however, so developers will have to implement the fix independently; a process that will take place "over the coming months," according to Major Nelson. (more)

Microsoft is serious about Windows 8, and if you're serious about submitting Metro-style apps then there's now a healthily long and detailed blog post (at the source link) explaining how. The post suggests that Redmond's app police are looking at a roughly a six-day turnaround for signing off and publishing the average title, with content compliance taking the longest time because it involves "real people." As the real person in the video after the break makes clear, your first goal should be to reserve ... (more)
