Details on why Microsoft dropped a Kinect processor

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2430 days, 11 hours, 47 minutes ago
Thursday, September 30, 2010 7:10:09 AM GMT
The Kinect's innards used to contain a standalone processor. In January they said they ditched it and now we have a bit more information on why. Before the removal of the processor, the Kinect used it for number crunching. Now, with the removal, the Xbox 360's processing does all the work. Kinect's main man at Microsoft, Kudo Tsunoda, explains: "We didn't know how much processing Kinect was going to take at the start of development," Tsunoda told the new Xbox World 360. (more)

Xbox Live Fall 2010 Dashboard Update preview: ESPN, Netflix search, Kinect, and more! (Update)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2430 days, 12 hours, 7 minutes ago
Thursday, September 30, 2010 6:49:43 AM GMT
Shortly before Kinect hits store shelves on November 4th, Microsoft plans on rolling out the Fall Update to Xbox Live -- even sooner for those who signed up for the preview program. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise, really: even without the numerous leaks, the fall update is a longstanding tradition for the almost five-year-old console, and the company devoted a large chunk of its E3 2010 presentation to talk about the biggest additions.

Crytek boss explains company's 'non-game' businesses

published 2431 days, 14 hours, 12 minutes ago posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2433 days, 11 hours, 49 minutes ago
Wednesday, September 29, 2010 4:44:49 AM GMT Monday, September 27, 2010 7:08:15 AM GMT
While Crytek is known for their games, the company actually makes a good deal of money on non-game businesses. Gamasutra quizzed Crytek studio head Cevat Yerli about the company's rapid expansion from "developer of Far Cry" to becoming a massive, international organization that currently employs six game studios -- in locations as varied as the UK, Budapest, Frankfurt Kiev, Sofia, and Korea. CryEngine 3 licensing brings in some dough, but how else does Crytek maintain its operations? (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 9 hours, 57 minutes ago
Saturday, July 17, 2010 8:59:51 AM GMT
Proving once again that in this world it's more important what you look like than what you do, the Xbox 360 has cruised to the title of best-selling console in June on the back of a sexy physical redesign. The latest numbers from NPD show that Microsoft shifted 451,700 units in the US, which ousts the Wii's tally of 422,500 and comfortably dwarfs the PS3's 304,800 (more)

Microsoft's E3 Reveal ''Bigger than Natal''

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2538 days, 12 hours, 25 minutes ago
Monday, June 14, 2010 6:32:09 AM GMT
Recently Microsoft emailed Xbox.com members announcing that its big E3 2010 reveal will be bigger than last year's announcement of Project Natal. While we're expecting something significant in the 3D department, we're rather curious as how the company will top last year's event. To make matters worse, gamers will have to stew over the possibilities until Sunday and Monday. (more)

UFC Undisputed 2010 Review: A Light Heavyweight Rematch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2554 days, 11 hours, 5 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:51:56 AM GMT
No game took an emerging sport to the mainstream in its first edition like UFC 2009 Undisputed did last year. But once you join sports gaming's A-list, even in your rookie year, you have to start making sequels. THQ, known for delivering annually on the WWE Smackdown series, poured development into UFC Undisputed 2010 to deliver a second game with mixed martial arts' top stars and branding, and cement its position as the definitive MMA publisher, since later this year it will no longer be the only one. ...

Project Natal to cost $149 by itself, $299 with 360 Arcade, according to latest rumors

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2556 days, 11 hours, 51 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:06:09 AM GMT
Here we go with those trusted sources again. Edge has it on good authority that Microsoft's midlife rejuvenator for the Xbox 360, Project Natal, will cost a cool 149 bucks when purchased as a standalone accessory, or $100 when bundled together with the $199 Xbox 360 Arcade console. That's a mighty steep hill for early adopters to climb, but Microsoft did warn us that Natal will not be an impulse buy. An October 26 date is also proffered for the official launch, but that might shift, leaving us with the s... (more)

Street Fighter II or Street Fighter IV, Which Does Daigo Like Better?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2558 days, 11 hours, 21 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:35:32 AM GMT
"SFII holds a very special place in my heart. It was the very game that introduced me to the world of Street Fighter," Daigo tells Kotaku. "I know Street Fighter IV will be another important game for me in my gaming history. It is the title which gave me new inspiration after 3-4 years in a rut and the title I played through to reach the top and got the sponsorship. In fact, it is becoming a very special game for me in a whole different way from SFII, but both are very important for me." (more)

The Reject Pile Of Spring 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 22 hours, 36 minutes ago
Monday, May 17, 2010 8:20:22 PM GMT
I try to possess as few video games as possible, because it is my dream to only own masterpieces. I haven't achieved this dream yet — hey, I can't bring myself to get rid of Geist, okay? But I did manage to eliminate about a fifth of my video game collection this weekend. Bear in mind that, as someone who covers games for a living, I get a lot of discs sent to me that I would not choose to buy; among those are some I will mess around with and decide to either keep or get rid of.

God Of War Writer Gets Shanked

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2569 days, 22 hours, 25 minutes ago
Thursday, May 13, 2010 8:32:01 PM GMT
Marianne Krawczyk, best known for bringing Kratos to life as the writer of God of War, is lending her talents to a different kind of hero in Klei Entertainment's Shank. Shank's story is a gritty, personal tale of revenge, and that's one subject that Marianne Krawczyk is fluent in, thanks to writing credits for all three console God of War titles, as well as the PSP's Chains of Olympus. Krawczyk's writing should be a nice compliment to the game's fast, fluid action and graphic novel style. (more)

Japan isn't only The Land of the Rising Sun. It's also The Land of Xbox 360 Indifference. There must be a way to double weekly consoles sales. Turns out, there is. Well, at least once.
