Does this mean that it is a network that will operate like xfire on PS3? or is it a multiplayer game engine and I am simply brain farting.

It's total rubbish.. Tried playing one game last night, nothing, just sitting on joining.. Then I gave up and played 3 hours of COD2 online..

It's just the software that UBI used to develope the games online to be used for the Xbox Live and PC online. Now maybe it's more involved w/the PC but nothing further w/the Xbox 360 and LIVE.

unless there's something more that I'm not aware of. Microsoft and the Xbox Live "host" the game.

there's ALOT of lag, and I thought they were releasing a patch for the multi-player?

Microsoft give the option to game developers to use their own servers too. i.e. EA usually use their own servers. But they most follow certain standard so the games feel the same way.

Hey I have a few questions if anybody who knows could possibly clear this up for me, I went out and randomly bought a new 50" Hi def TV today and well I have a HDTV now that I play my 360 on and I use the cables that came with the Premium package. But now my new TV has slots for VGA and all that, should I keep to component cables or will I get a better picture from VGA?

Nothing wrong with more games. As someone who just fundamentally hates xbox, I am pretty jelly that xbox gamers get real BC.

Finally ninja gaiden 2 is BC, I've been waiting on this since they announced BC.

Bane351691d ago (Edited 1691d ago )

Yeah i thought ninja gaiden was gonna get remaster because it wasnt announced for backwards compatible til just now tho i would've been up for joy if they announced max payne 3 for backwards compatible today instead

hiawa231691d ago

I am so wanting MP3 on BC and X1X enhanced

Bane351691d ago (Edited 1691d ago )

@hiawa23 i think R* has plans to remaster MP3 at this point

Z5011691d ago

You couldn't play your copy of NG2 before this announcement?

Bane351691d ago (Edited 1691d ago )

No it just became backwards compatible today

Movefasta19931691d ago

not everybody still has their 360, that's why

Z5011691d ago

Kept your game, but no console to play it on?
No one sells 360's anymore?

Ninja Gaiden 2 is the main game I wanted bcthen alone one x enchanced is this game is more fun than bloodborne

Gwiz1691d ago

No contest,souls games are overhyped for difficulty.

bluebenjamin1691d ago

Very overhyped just because of difficulty not because of fun

Movefasta19931691d ago

facts, once you beat a souls game and do ng plus, you have the game downloaded. Once you return to ng1 and 2 you still can get your ass handed to you lol, the regular enemies are a threat, still attacking even when they are on the ground dismembered.

Gaming4Life19811691d ago

Agreed dark souls, bloodborne, and sekiro are overhyped games and dont compare to ninja gaiden 1 & , ninja gaiden 3 sucks.

What does BB have to do with NG2?
Why not insert Contra Shattered Soldier while you're at it.

bluebenjamin1691d ago

Ninja gaiden was once considered one of the hardest games ninja gaiden 2 has rpg elements so does bloodborn they have similar combat but ninja gaiden 2 just looks better doing it plus its fast pace and flashy combos removing limbs of foes remember 360 put more enemies on screen than ps3 on this game 360 had more dismemberment of limbs than the ps3 vs.360 had a better gpu but ps3 still to this day has an awesome cpu the ps3 had the prettiest ninja gaiden because of native 720 p while 360 pushed 640p now the one X has both higher rez and 360 style dismemberment But Ok for you contra ps2 version and nes
