When I heard Forza was coming back for another round, I jumped on the twitters, and the PR company very kindly responded. I’m so glad they did. I was expecting subtle revisions to the game, but Forza 4 is a revelation. It’s the best car racing game you’ll find on any platform, bar none.
Things just got a whole heap more muddy in the battle for next-gen console supremacy. Despite falling squarely in the XBox fanboy camp, I had an inkling that Sony would kick some ass with their PS3, especially over the full lifecycle, with more grunt being discovered under the Cell architecture as developers got to grips [...]
My fanboy spidey-sense has been on high alert during the launch of the 360, so it pains me to admit that the XBox 360 is looking a little more broken than I previously let on. Engadget sums up the whole crashing/instability debacle quite nicely: And in old-school bad news, a father and daughter had to [...]
While the developed world have the XBox 360 in their hot little hands, Microsoft have finally come out and defined what “sometime during the 2006 calendar year” means for us third-world citizens in New Zealand. Those prices are a little on the stinky side. With the New Zealand peso running at about US$0.70, a UD$400 [...]
Joystiq has a nice, in-depth rundown of Project Gotham Racing 3. This is one of the titles for the XBox 360 that I’m seriously hanging out for. PGR’s simulation-level physics and photo-realistic graphics, combined with the fantastic Kudos system gameplay makes for a fantastic game experience with near infinite replayability. It looks like Microsoft and [...]
Ahh crap! Once again the gamers who happen to not live in the big-money areas of USA, Japan and Europe get treated as third-world gaming citizens. Microsoft is releasing the XBox 360 in USA, Europe and Japan in late November/early December, but all they will commit to for the rest of us plebs is: Booo!
Project Gotham Racing 3 is looking as sexy as you would expect from a next-gen title. Just how sexy can be seen in Bizzarre’s new “3D screnshot”. Check out the little flash app that lets you rotate around the image: Comments from the creators:
OK, so here’s another picture of the ’360 from a slightly different angle: Combine that with the previous one, and you end up with this (click for a biggie): There’s no telling whether that is a render (probably) or an actual product shot, but it does seem to match up with the other pics, and [...]
Godammit what the hell is wrong with me? Like every self-respecting Gen-Xer, I find Marketing (with a capital M) a dirty word. Yet I too am drawn like some sort of blundering 6-foot moth to the flame that is this obtuse picture of a part of the new XBox. Engadget has confirmed it is real, [...]
In one fell swoop, it is revealed that the ourcolony.net site is definitely related to the XBox 2/360/Next, and that the date it is counting down to (12th of May, 2005) is the same date that the XBox Next260 will be revealed to the public in an MTV half-hour special. Voodoo Extreme has the skinny: [...]
