MS denies 100GB harddisk

We're sorry to be the party poopers, but today Boris Schneider-Johne, MS product manager Germany says Microsoft denies the existence of the 100GB harddisk we reported about yesterday. According to him, someone has been tampering with the picture used in the Powerpoint presentation. The signature has been painted-over simply using the Arial font. Probably some Korean guy who sees this as a 'practical joke'

Just like they denied the HD-DVD player, when it was still just a rumor. Nice try, MS...but we all know you've got surprises up your sleeves to combat SONY.

Mr Murda6427d ago

I think you're dead on here. There has been talk of a 100GB HD for quite some time. With the Zune dropping in November they need to have an option to store all this media (music, videos, movies) that will eventually (probably) be available on Live the near future.

THWIP6427d ago

Zune was ALSO denied....SEVERAL TIMES. ;)

highps36427d ago

DENIED!!! 360 will need space sooner or later but for now they are DENIED!!!

BIadestarX6427d ago

Lets see if sony bites in to this, and start point out the HD 20 GB as an issue like they did with 1080P. M$ like using this tatics to make their competitors fall into traps.
Microsoft you are a dirty little boy.

kmis876427d ago

I doubt Sony would bash 20gb hd's, cause after all, that would be like shooting themselves in the foot. For example, you're not going to see Microsoft come out and say memory cards and wired controllers are junk, although Sony might say something like that soon.

DJ6427d ago

You act like Microsoft is the only company that turns the tables on its competitors. Why would they talk smack about a 20GB hard drive when they offer it for the low-end PS3? Kmis does bring up a good point about wired controllers and memory cards. Sony could potentially make fun of Microsoft for holding onto these last-gen ideas. Sony's putting out a memory card adaptor so that consumers will never have to bother with them anymore. Hard Drive storage is the new standard.

BIadestarX6427d ago

They "talk smack" about everything microsoft does.. and if they don't find anything, then they will change the facts like they did with the prices for which they are now getting sued. So, why wouldn't they do that?
Also, I don't understand whats the big deal about the fact that the core does not come with a HD... I didn't buy a core, anybody that cares about the HD bought the premium. Why? well it came with a headset, universal controller, 1 month of xbox live, HD cables, HD, etc. for $399, so too me the 360 comes with it. Since, the premium still cheaper than the lower PS3 SKU and you don't complain about. The same goes for the PS3, any serious PS gamers that (cares) will buy the 599 sku. Specially considering the fact that it does not come with wifi (no option to buy in the future, as least that we know of) and a big difference between Hard drives.

kmis876427d ago

My post just meant to say that businesses always bash what their competitor does so that they can claim what they're doing is better. When Sony says that the 360 doesn't come with a hard drive as standard, and when Microsoft says that Sony doesn't let consumers pay for what they want, they're doing the same thing.

BIadestarX6426d ago

Yeah, but what would you think if microsoft issue a fact sheet saying that the PSP3 cost $2,000?

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

hiawa233d ago (Edited 3d ago )

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

ChasterMies3d ago

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.

Skuletor3d ago

Singleplayer shooters are still getting released every year, just look up "boomer shooters" and you'll find an an abundance of them. AAA fps campaigns, not so much.

Last year had Trepang2, RoboCop: Rogue City, Turbo Overkill, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Dread Templar, Sprawl and more

DustMan3d ago

The games you mentioned are not from AAA developers. Wolfenstein likely had a budget that was probably as big as all those games you mentioned combined. I'm not knocking the new wave of retro shooters. I absolutely love them (I think some get much higher review scores than they deserve though). I just really wouldn't describe Wolfenstein as purely a boomer shooter based on the relatively cohesive story, with cut scenes and is fully voice acted. Full set piece moments.

AA development seems to be focused keeping the single player solo experience alive. But the big developers are only concerned about the MTX and milking players who enjoy multiplayer.

ChasterMies3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

The age of AA shooters. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I like less expense, shorter games.

Abear213d ago

Weird all the Wolfenstein articles.

Can you guess what will be announced at Xbox showcase?

DefenderOfDoom23d ago
