RPG-TV got a briefing last week on the Xbox Live Experience and was told that the Fall dashboard update would be hitting in November, i.e. this fall.
only 3 months and 7 days away, about the same time for gears2 as well, sh!t i can't wait to get both. november looks like it's going to be the month.
Nice, Gears 2 in the same month...Cant wait. It's going to be a good November for Xbox 360 owners.
Dam, looking good for 360.... Looking bad for PS3.
I would rather have Home (plus PS3 firmware updates) than a 360 Fall Update. And i would rather have LBP, Socom, Res 2, Motorstorm and WipEout HD than Gears 2.
Home, though a good idea in theory, many not execute nearly as well as Sony hopes. Plus, the party system pales in comparison to what Xbox Live does. And I would rather have Gears 2, exclusive Fallout 3 content, more GTA IV content, Fable 2, Left 4 Dead, Age of Conan, and many others than Resistance 2, LBP, and Socom. By the way, I think the PS3 is a great machine, and Sony is trying their best. But they've fallen fairly short. ::Sigh::
have a PC.
cares what you rather have mkay
Really? I would rather have testicle acne than a PS3, Homo, or any of those flop titles.
I'd rather have games annouced last year and get to play in a year than games/features annouced at launch 2 years back and still waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaiting for it. I'd rather see Aswoles bubbles to troll level of 2 than having 9
ahahahah owned. sak owned all u sack boy lovers!!!!
Of course you would... -.-
Hardly news the updates are always in November.
There was a lot of rumor going around that the new update was coming out in September. This is just to confirm that it's not.
This update is massively anticipated - being the biggest update to a home console ever. Thus people were anxious that the update may slip into next year just so MS could get it perfect - this news is excellent and puts minds at rest. Trust Microsoft to come up trumps - well done guys!
at least microsoft releases s**t faster. I swear ive been waiting for home for decades. and ima need something to move me from playing 3rd party on my 360 to my ps3. ..... oh no disagrees.... umm.... think quick.... oh i love my ps3..... i use it as a p**sy when my girls out of town. last game i played was mgs4 and i already sent that back to gamefly. i need killzone that is why i bought the system
Aw, I was hoping that September rumor was true. I wanted to try these new features before all these games came out so i could have a hang of it all.
I was hoping september too, oh well:(
Eh, November is just as well. I was also hoping the Septemeber was true. Oh well, at least it's not being delayed until next year or anything.
Does anyone know if Gears 2 will have achievement support?
I hope so. I wish they would make it a standard for their games. :(
Me too :(
All 360 games have achievements....Where have you been?
All 360 games have achievements. In fact, with the Fall Update, there will also be "medals" assigned to achievements. Don't think of them as "trophies", per se. They're more like visual representations of achievements that will show with your gamercard. I'm sure Gears 2 will have them, since they're one of Microsoft's flagship titles.
I noticed what you did there. If it wasn't for movie buffs buying the ps3 for it's blu-ray player, the ps3 would have already beeen discontinued.
Nah jenzo achievements and rumble are so lame we should be glad that we dont have to worry and check for every game having rumble or achievements support.
ROFL jenzo. nice one. if we are lucky, Gears 2 might have one achievement. maybe two like the play house ps3 games get instead of our usual 50 a game.
i also heard that the new update would only support one game with cross-game invites, custom sound tracks, headsets,ect. is this true?
i think u must be thinking about PS3
lol damn november? I was thinkin more like... NEXT MONTH oh well lol
I could see it coming out around the time Gears 2 and other top holiday titles would be released. I'm looking forward to it.
No worries better to wait 2 2 1/2 months than few years.
Wow...some sorely misled, hopelessly lost individuals...
The only misled hopeless individuals in this story are the people who willingly let Sony shove a blu-ray player and it's video decoder Cell up their stupid a**es, and still think they made a good decision for a game machine. Like ole Ali_the_Dumb Sh*t in the post below.
I was never fond of the Blades tbh...i always thought they where crap compared to the XMB (just like i think the 360 is crap in general compared to my ps3) but this will be a welcome update
The blades reminded me of a kids FunFax with swoosh noises, this does look much better, easier to use, navigate and a lot more flashier than before. I'm afraid I'm not up for the Avatars though, I'll probably be turning those off.
i think your tracking me XD
"(just like i think the 360 is crap in general compared to my ps3)" Yes, we ALL know.. -.-
Home is too close. No way they will give Sony that type of news without a retort.
Ah man this sucks..... I realy dont feel like waiting this long for this update but I dont have a choice :/.
I thought they just said it would be out in september, or am I wrong.
Traditionally the holiday buying season starts the day after Thanksgiving so it would make sense to release the new update around then.
it really is over for xbox,damm.P L A Y B 3 Y O N D !!!
I can't wait to load up mu JRPG's on the HDD...I have like 99 GIGS left on my Elite. I've never complained about swapping disc, but less load times is musch appreciated and it's all OPTIONAL. Thx MSosft.
Gta Content "bringing roughly 15 hours of additional play time." New Dashboard. Gears 2. And, plenty more!
You wont need to swap disk's apperently once you've installed them all....i heard this in an interview with major nelson :S so for example playing lost odyessy, install disks 1-4 then only put one of them in, and you could run disk 2, 3, 4..... which sounds like a crazy-good idea to me.
