Gamespot take a look at the Xbox 360's new rumored accessories....
u know its MS all the WAY bro!!!!
I know it, u know it, they know it, but just wont admit it!!!
I just love what Microsoft is doing. You been playing Dead Rising? Have you beat it yet and went into overtime mode? I love that game.
ur lucky bro!!!
I have to wait till next month for DR release in uk!!!
but even the demo's SIK ffs!!!!!!
speaking of demos bro, when saints row's released, we're gonna have to start a squad, set up our own turf, and MASH-OUT on any mo'fo disrepecting the GAME!!!!
real deal, I aint played a console like my 360 since my snes/megadrive days bro!!!!
I gotta respect MS for that man!!
Saints Row is going to be crazy. Online Gang Wars. I love it.
saints row is on my list along with godfather the souped up version, and the live webcam
Same me DC, i have to wait for a month for UK Dead Rising release. This game is FUN! Saint's Row will be class if the framerate is improved from demo version. It's all good news. I thought summer/early autumn was a dry season for games??
I thought you weren't coming on this 'sad site' as i heard you recall Mikeeno. And those specs you posted the other day took the whole friggin page up man!
never mind bro, soon enough!!!!
i'm just taking all my aggresion out on LIVE FN3!!
i think the regular controller is already too FPS friendly. I want a controller more comfortable to play RPGs
What exactly do you need in a controller for an RPG?
I just want them to fix the D-Pad, and for Hori to release a new arcade stick and i'm happy.
Do you mean by too friendly? Do you need extra buttons?
I think the controller now is fine.
saints row is gonna be crazy. just think that u can form a gang online wit ppl from all over the world. f*Ck that is gonna be crazy. a guy in the states or canada playing wit some1 in europe or asia!
Here we go again, everything MS does or releases is praised by it's fanboys lol! Why do i say this yous are geting all excited about a controller! Man i think they've been releasing them for years! Mabye i'm wrong though, just seems that everytime i go into a Shop that sells games they sell them as well!
Its obvious your just trying to be a biotch because your a PSZero fanboy.So go onto the PS3 news where you belong.
For me this is the TRUMP card over the PS3 if MS lets me record HD content from my TV say good bye to the PS3. Hey that rhymes.
In the article, someone mentions that: "Little more information is known on [1080 output] or if there will be a gaming performance impact."
As a techie, I can’t help but laugh at that statement because one of the many benefits of the Xenos GPU’s 10mb of embedded D-RAM is that it gives the 360 a fill rate of over 16 gigasamples per second using 4 x MS - Anti Aliasing at 720p. The catch here though; is that unlike the RSX, or any other traditional PC GPU; the Xenos GPU can achieve this with absolutely NO PERFORMANCE LOSS! Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the lowly PS3’s RSX…
The biggest enemy to graphics in the next-generation is resolution and (without going into the specifics of an entire console comparison) …developers for the PS3 will basically be forced to output at 720p – if they want to even have a hope in hell of matching the graphically fidelity of the 360.
Furthermore, 99% of all HD-TV’s that have been sold to date; cannot accept 1080p signals – even though they might claim to be able to display at a 1080p resolution. These “1080p” televisions essentially will take in a 1080i signal at 60 frames per second and “up convert” to 1080p by displaying all of the lines at once, at 30 frames per second. Obviously, HD-TV’s that can accept 1080p signals have (just recently) arrived on the market but unless you want a 70” – plus TV; or you are sitting way too close to your existing 720p HD-TV; the difference is really fairly minimal. Personally, I sit far enough back from my 52” HD-TV (i.e. the recommended distance) that I can honestly say that 1080p wouldn’t be worth the cost. Any ways, even if you do prefer a 1080p and are one of those people that claim that “there is such a big difference” – well do I have a shocker for you!
I guarantee you that a 720p signal with 4 x MSAA looks 100% better than a 1080p signal without any anti-aliasing at all – especially on BIG SCREEN HD-TV’s! On computers that statement doesn’t really hold true but on a big screen TV; it most certainly does and Microsoft knew this. So in the process of limiting game output on the 360 to 720p – you were also being essentially given a guarantee that: 1) there would be a minimum of 4 x MSAA; and 2) that developers wouldn’t be wasting unnecessary resources and sacrificing the graphical fidelity of the game.
Sony on the other hand; didn’t have the same luxury as Microsoft with their vastly inferior RSX GPU – so rather than doing nothing they decided that they really had nothing to lose by leaving it up to the developers to decide whether or not they output at 1080p. Meanwhile, their spinsters could take it and claim that the PS3 is more powerful than the 360 because obviously the number 1080 is greater than 720. A complete joke when you consider that most PS3 games will be in 720p and there is no guarantee if there will be any anti-aliasing at all!
At any rate, next time you see a “comparison sheet” that says “360 = 720p and Ps3 = 1080p” – you too can laugh at how unrepresentative that is to the actual situation and laugh at Sony fan boys claiming that that is proof that their console is more powerful. The lesson here is don’t take everything at face value!
Did you actually say that 1280 x 720 4xAA would look better than 1920 x 1080?
And since when doesnt the Ps3 support AA?
Just a FYI.. As you increase resolution there becomes less need for AA in the first place due to the pixels being closer together.
Well said my man i agree with u 100%,but the sony fanboys wont believe a word of it,they still believe all the bull sony have sprouted over the past year even though its been proven that sony lied.There a bunch of brain washed drones...
Xbox fanboys are nothing but a bunch of thugs, they comment on everything PS3 possible and it's always bad. They can't handle it there console is 3rd to the PS3 and Wii.
All you do is bash the 360... Give it a rest. I think YOURE actually scared.
wow, you are a lowlife. do you do ne thing besides sitting on the computer and coming to this site "stfu xbox"? get a life, y the hell are you here, shouldnt you be concerned about your precious ps3
You're just another Sony nut case. QUOTE ((((they comment on everything PS3 possible and it's always bad.))) Do you know where you are , what year is it, do you know you're name.
What she said.
It seems as if all the Sony fanboys have like got so sick of the 360 fanboys on here they no longer comment, well i see so much bashing of the PS3 my sole purpose is to piss of as many Xbox 360 fanboys as possible, it's great fun!
Lol man this is maddness people are are making love to consoles now, omg that's insane man, i will be afraid to touch any body elses computer from now on, man i'm not sure if that's a good thing for selling more consoles or not, but one thing i'm sure of is that Sony, yea i'm the Sony nutcase, will kick MS a*s, now can you dig that suckaaaaaaaaaaa!
Nothing Official on HD-DVD 360 Games
Microsoft doesn't say yes, but not exactly no, either. http://1up.com/do/newsStory...
Oh I can clear some of these rumors up.
Microsoft thinks Sony's $600 price is ridiculous, so a $200 HD DVD player that would make an XBox 360 with HD DVD (sans Wi-Fi) $600 just won't happen.
Microsoft has said a few times that 1080 doesn't matter and can't be done, so they won't implement it.
Microsoft would never release one controller only to release another later. Look to the past people, never.
Yes, it's sarcasm.
Will shout how the add-on HDD drive makes the 360 the same price as the PS3. They forget to mention that IT IS OPTIONAL. I, for one, will wait to get a HD drive, just to see how the whole BLu-Ray, HD DVD thing turns out, and to hear reports of how good HD DVD movies look played on it through a 360. See, I have the luxury of doing this, people who buy the PS3 (either version) do not. So if HD DVD gets the most market share, PS3 owners are screwed. If the Blu-ray drives used in the PS3 are cheap and display a sub-standard picture, PS3 owners are screwed. Microsoft has said they will offer consumers "choice" all along, Sony takes "choice" away.
um, actually there are rumors circulating that it will in fact be required for some games. if this is true, and if either of those games are Halo 3, Fable 2 or Forza 2, it will be a HUGE blow against Microsoft's credibility. if said rumor is true.
then they will probably sell lots. if those games would require, there would be tons getting the hddvd.
You have the choice to buy the console for an affordable price and upgrade later. You mean MS thinks 1080p's pointless, sence when does somthing have to be in 1080p for it to he HD?.Quote (Microsoft would never release one controller only to release another later) Oh! really!, i'v just gave away the first d-facto xbox controller to my buddy that has NBA player sized hands. You Sony fans R some funny peps.
If you're going to have a response that calls me a ding bat maybe you should read my whole post. I never said anything had to be 1080p to be HD. In fact, I never said 1080p at all. Then the controller comment... maybe you didn't notice that I said "Yes, it's sarcasm." in my post so people knew it was sarcastic.
You MS fans R some funny peps... oh I mean peeps.
HEY! PS fanboys! Guys...i'm a sony fanboy too...and you're on THEIR forums! GET OFF! We can't yell at them for being on our forums if we're just gonna mess with their forums! What the heck is wrong with you guys. Oh, and from this point on...nobody bring PS3 into this. This is GREAT news for the 360 if it's true...and THAT'S IT! 360 fans...praise MS. PS3 fans...get to your forums!
