OXM UK has listed the top five Xbox 360 rumours that never actually came true. The list ranks the rumours based on the outrage caused, plausibility and the slight chance that some of them still might come true...
I place the personalized store on Live where I could sell everything from Mods to Tshirts higher than the RE4 remake.
velocity girl can sell her custom skateboard design! Live anywhere! xbox 360 will reach a billion people!
LOL - come on now. You are claiming that there is ZERO lag on PSN servers??? Haha HA! --> We care about our customers.. not just milking them for every penny Riiight... what is the cost of Qore again? How much for all the items for your Home space? Where's an included HDMI cable for your PS3? Where's an included component cable? Sony nickle and dimes as well as anyone. Wake up. --> You can trust us What happened to backwards compatibility with PS2 games on the PS3? What happened to Sony's stance that "rumble" was last-gen? Didn't you have to go out and buy ANOTHER PS3 controller when the DualShock 3 was released? What happened to Sony stance about "multiple skues confusing consumers?" Aren't current PS3s downgraded in many areas vs the initial PS3 releases? And what did Sony say about PSP dead pixel, and button issues previously? Come on! Killzone 2 E3 '05 footage was "real-time" graphics? Or when Sony was claiming to journalists that the Sixaxis controller actually won an Emmy for contributions to game design. Errrr... Sony - “The Sixaxis beat out the Wii-mote?” Christine Chin: "I understand you had contacted Cheryl Daly, Director of Communications at NATAS to confirm if Sony won for their PS3 controller. This is incorrect, Sony won for their dual shock analog controller. The award is from the Video Game Technology Group. It was nominated by our internal group and considered along with the Nintendo D-Pad both of which were considered Emmy worthy for the development of the generation of controllers that followed the classic joysticks. I would like to confirm that Sony did not win for their PS3 controller, they won for their Dual Shock Analog controller." Sony's claims were lies. The award was for the original dual shock controller... not for any PS3 controller.
I think the post you meant to respond to is down a bit.
RROD covers at least half of those things IMO.
"Where's an included HDMI cable for your PS3? Where's an included component cable?" Ha lol 2 cables, oh no thats a whole £2 360:Wheres the included HDD,wheres the included wifi,wheres the included rechargeable controllers. now if i`ve done my maths right i think an extra £200 is more than an extra £2
I kid you not. PSN dedicated servers has no lag. Best example is the chaos in Warhawk. It'd be impossible to snipe a warhawk with lag. If you dont have a PS3, go check out youtube videos. No lag gameplay. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
a blu ray 360 and mgs4 on 360 .. hands down winners
theres a mgs4 on 360 rumour every couple of months, we are due for one soon actually lol
Is that there will be a "MGS4 coming to 360" article soon. But that was just part of his joke.
that shouldnt happen anymore. times have changed
"Watch out for Kojima's next interview, where a token and non-commital such as "I'm very excited about my next project" will be interpreted as OMG MGS4 ON DA 360 LOLOLOLOL." lmao thats so true, like the little teaser which turned out to be mgs for iphone. Classic.
#1 We've fixed our shoddy hardware on revision number 23.. New vulture chip's do not break, please buy another 360. #2 We have the best 1st part software. Pay no attention to the Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, GT5, Ratchet and Clank, MGS4, Warhawk, etc #3 We care about our customers.. not just milking them for every penny (see post 1) #4 Live > PSN.. You really don't want lag free dedicated servers that the PSN provides for free. Paying for laggy gaming is better. #5 You can trust us
#4 has got to be the best one.
MGS4 was a third party, not first. Also, Sony cares about their customers? THis from the company that charges $150 for an HDD or disk read error as opposed to MS who, while the rrod is a bit much, still fixes them for free. Also, wasnt Sony the company who boasted that the high price of the PS3 was no big deal since people would work overtime to buy one? Yea, they care..
The PSN and XBL both uses a mixure of dedicated servers and peer-to-peer hosting. L4D, Bad Company, almost all EA games use dedicated servers on XBL. Why don't you take it to the open zone where this type of trolling is allowed? *Edit Also at point 3, how many PS3 owners needed to rebuy a controller because of the "rumble is last gen" crap by Sony? Of course you can trust sony ;)
@ aueslander Ms fixes their consoles for free to avoid lawsuits and a recall. Sony's failure rate is well below the 1% range..you know..where the acceptable failure rate is within the 1-3% range. I could go on about MS's amazing hardware...but I won't. @ Bucky Sligo Yes, XBL DOES have dedicated servers, BUT like you said, they are the EA servers, while other "flagship" titles that are exclusive to the 360 do not have dedicated servers, like Halo 3. Gears of War doesn't need any because it only uses 8 players, and the main reason why THAT game lags is because Epic fails...get it? lol. That one isn't MS's fault. But anyway, PSN has a lot of Dedicated servers. Resistance 2, Warhawk, MGO, even UT3 uses dedicated servers (include all the same EA games as well). Yes there is a misconception about PSN being a dedicated server ONLY service, when it isn't. Yes it provides more of them than the 360, but it's not large difference like people think. Also, PSN is free, while its consistent with its connections also. Oh, and I bought a DS3, I admit it, but thats because I wanted to let my friends play MP with me. Also, the reason why rumble was "last gen" is because Sony was in a lawsuit with what was it, Immersion? MS settled, thus being able to put it in their games at release, while Sony fought (and lost).
This rumor keeps surfacing every now and then, but it's never been confirmed by Microsoft. I wish they'd just out and address the issue. "Yes, RROD sucked but the Jasper board is safe. Have at er." I guess it doesn't matter. I bought a lauch 360 that's been replaced 4 times now and I just can't bring myself to play on it anymore because I just know this refubed console MS sent me will die the second I get into something. I suppose if MS has fixed RROD, that's only good news for those that buy the console going forward. Reporting from my exile in the Open Zone. *sigh*
It sure is a lonely place. I still think gamer/open zone was a better idea in concept.
It's like being thrown onto the short bus for a 6 hour trip. It's surprising most of the open zone posters can type a sentence without drooling all over themselves and wrecking their keyboards. And to think, I'm in exile currently for simply pointing out that MS makes a lot of money off XBL and it's a smart move to offer free Gold weekends to expand that base. Apparently it's taboo among 360 fans to discuss how much money Microsoft makes off XBL fees. Go figure. I would have thought the mods would read the comments rather than a knee jerk exile because some 360 fans got themselves all bent up over it.
i thought they just removed your post ... i dont know why anyone would argue that microsoft makes primary money from xbl and console sales.. some ppl just dont wanna hear it...
Every comment I see is you bashing the 360. For someone who dislikes the 360 and has so much negative things to say about it, you sure spend a lot of time the XBOX 360 SECTION. They don't ban you for making constructive posts, they ban you when you just troll sites like a fanboy. open zone is where you belong.
You guys are all like the people in the party that stand in the nerd corner drinking orange juice. ... Can I join? :(
Blu-ray on 360 will never, ever, happen. Microsoft would rather bring back HD-DVD than pay Sony for every 360 sold.
MS just follows the money, they've already began endorsing blu-ray. Their half baked supported of HD DVD was only in hopes that both would fail in favor of DD. They've come to realize that battle is lost and that supporting blu will bring them the biggest $$$. However don't count on a blu-ray drive this generation for the 360. Next generation's Xbox will have a blu-ray drive without a doubt. They aren't going to piss off a ton of developers like they did this gen by having such a small storage medium again.
That's not true. Windows OS are on Sony Viao laptops. It's not like they hate each other, they just compete on the same markets on some things. Same thing with Apple back in the day when Microsoft saved their asses and invested in Apple stocks or w/e that mess was. BR on 360 could happen.
All companies follow the money. What most of you fail to realize is that Sony and Microsoft are multi-BILLION dollar corporations, that care about the bottom line. PERIOD. They only care about the consumer when we get off our fat, beer-swilling, game playing posteriors, and hit pause on KZ2 or Gears and complain loud and long enough....or the system breaks.
lol i remember the mgs4 hype when it turned out to be a rail shooter for the iphone :p
Reasons it had to be MGS4 on 360 1. It was green 2. It was a power button
i still remember that week... it was a good feeling while it lasted... once the news came out of the iphone and the dust had settled thinking back about it ... all hopes were pinned on a green power button ... tsk tsk. its funny NOW thinking about it
how odd lol it seems 3 ppl didn't remember that event :p I think before long mgs4 on 360 will die out... then it will be. mgs5 to be multiplatform??? and at this stage who really knows, i doubt we'll see or hear anything about mgs5 for some time anyway
I want the updated version of GoldenEye
Not happening, but it'd be awesome. Conker's, on the other hand, better happen.
ill take an updated perfect dark 64 as compensation tho!
Rrod already nonexistent :P
Now it's E74. That's why. j/k
That The 360 Was a Next Gen Console But as i Said It's Just a Rumour
"Rumour" is the European spelling. Inform yourself before opening your trap. Moron.
Rumour in the headline What a Moron
He is from America, so he should have had it "RUMOR". He even said he had to look in the title to see it. I don't care how they spell anything in Europe, Jesus, they still use a QUEEN.
everyone always says they see "valid evidence" that MGS4 would go to 360 and the evidence is always the same - it's citing other games that have gone multiplatform. While that is true, that's not exactly what I'd call hard evidence. If anything, I'd use the last two Metal Gears as evidence as to why Konami probably sees no reason to do. Twin Snakes and Subsistence were actually better than the original versions of the games that came on PlayStation. How did they sell? Pretty damn poorly. You know why? Simple - all the fans just wanted to have the game on "their platform" just to say they had it. But, when they got it, they had no interest in playing it because they probably all ready played it on PlayStation by then anyway. You see, most of the people crying about wanting it on 360 just want it for the same reason - just to say they have it. If you are actually "waiting" to play MGS4 on 360 then you're not a fan of the series and that's a fact. It's a great game and you should find a way to play it. Here's my take: Most games are announced as being ported within a year of their release and statistically if it's not announced by then it's not happening. We're nearing that year and I'd say if it's not announced at E3 of this year, it's not happening. Ever. But seriously, if you haven't played MGS4 and are one of those people wanting it on 360 my point still stands and you are NOT a true fan of the series and more than likely wouldn't buy it on 360 anyway when it came out. At the most you'd rent it, which doesn't mean crap to Konami.
Good points, but what if Kojima is working on a new metal gear game and planning on making it multiplat? If it was a new story arc, there is a chance it may see a 360 release, as well. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it happened... it would be weird seeing it go multiplat, though.
I agree with pretty much everything in your post except you saying twin snakes was better than the original. No way my friend. :)
OTHER FALSE RUMORS, CONCERNING THE X360 ARE: -MS is killing the PS3, which is why the PS3's price has not come down yet. (For the mathematical deficient fanboys/girls, please subtract money lost from extended warranties, system replacements, new processing chips, and bad investments. MS really pulled a fast one over on Nintendo and Sony, by purchasing RARE.) -MS and Bungie didn't make over $800 Billion dollars for Halo 3, which is why it is necessary to charge customers for multiplayer maps. (P.S. that whole "It cost $50 million or so to make a game....IS CRAP, AND HAS NEVER BEEN TRUE! Army of 2 and Mass Efect were basic in sales and quality....so, you mean to tell me that there's more money to gamble on sequels? think about it, noobs!) -X360 is capable of pushing MGS4, LBP, GOW3, Drakes2, MAG, and Killzone 2 on a DVD-9 disk. -And we all know this is false: Halo 3 is in 1080p and Killzone 2 is in 720p. WHAT THE F....THAT IS TRUE!
Even though I can still post in the gamerzone openzone is where the true discussions begin. Anyway M$ fanboys are known for starting rumours so I take everything with a grain of salt...
look, it's on both sides, but it's the few ps3 fans (not ALL of them) that dominate this site in hopes that they can stifle x360 from existence that make this site terrible. and it's a petty dream...the number of registered n4g members isn't even 1% of either console's audience. x360 fans have to fight back because otherwise ps3 fans would add 5 more rumors to the list just so that they could further ruin x360's rep.
Blu-Ray on the 360 is ridiculousbut MGS4 on 360 is somewhat believable IMO
I got a good rumour that never came true. XBOX 360 has good games.
Oh god i want this game so much. And i want the original on XBLA and the sony network... KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE!
They rumoured that the flopbox 360 is a good console, however, according to scientist, it sucks.
I LOLed when i saw the top 2 rumors. 1. Xbox360 not going blu-ray was a huge mistake, obviously. The Ps3 is worth so much more in value, and blu-ray playback is a big part of that. 2. MGS4 on 360? I never ever believe that this could be true. Thruout the entire commentary, Kojima's developers were all "sony this, ps3 that." The 360 would never be able to process the amount of info that's on the mgs disc anyways, so there would be a huge degradation in quality. This is one of PS3's big ones, and Kojima would never allow this to go across boarders...ever! It's like Sony saying "Yeah, we're going to get Gears of War on teh PS3 now!" Never going to happen. A LOL to all you 360 morons that thought you were getting mgs4
With ps2, psp, ps3 & psn Sony is making billions. Good job to the Japanese who have honor in thier craft of creating a working system for gamers. Sony saves so much money not having a 1 out of 3 defective hardware models. The only way I would maybe buy a 360 is if live is free, no rrod e74 & if they can proove to push the envelope & actually challenge ps3 only games. Microsoft needs to step up. They are laggin & it's getting old. Even the ultimate gamer reality show had a halo tourney that was torture to play because halo makes you sick & stupid. Look at the vids again. Everyone is fed up with halo man.
That would make a xbox360 a ps3 without the playstation games & it breaks. LOL, xbutts are so sorry. Hail me as your king! I might forgive you desolent ones. Poor bastards pretend they enjoy little mini DVD games of unpolisshed crappolah! There isn't 1 game on 360 that couldn't be on psn & downloaded in 5 minutes. Pah lease! So sad too bad. You bought a xbox360?!?
bad news for ps3 fans cause tat means more of halo games...they are the best...but killzone2 is a great game..i can give you that...and ps3 sports games r so much better
