Xbox 360's AAA Lineup to Hit India First, 360 Slim Unofficially Announced, Then Officially Labeled Speculation, and I Win for Long

The Xbox 360's big hitters this Fall, namely Fable 2, Fallout 3, and Gears of War 2, are actually set to release in India a full week prior to the official worldwide release dates. Apparently, this is Microsoft's way of saying "thanks" to its customer service department.

Interestingly enough, Microsoft India's Retail Services Manager, Rahul Datta, also apparently let slip that the oft-rumored Xbox 360 Slim was, in fact, a reality and that an announcement would be made soon. This, of course, led the Microsoft hired goons to stab him in the throat and claim his words were minced.

The story is too old to be commented.

good to see developing countries getting the chance to experience true gaming :)

Twizlex3858d ago

Developing countries, hahaha...

Anyway, Microsoft really does seem to be making a huge push for India.

its funny how this rumor of the "slim 360" boomed when a guy took a pic of his 360 in an angle that made it look slimmer xD

Twizlex3858d ago

Well, there is also an "artist's conception" floating around the webs.

White-Sharingan3858d ago (Edited 3858d ago )

wasnt that shown after the picture? I forgot

-either way I would be pissed if true! I bought an elite two months ago (before the price drop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Capt CHAOS3857d ago

Why buy an elite?

Different people different reasons, some for disk storage etc., there's a guy here who will buy the elite because he can't stand the white xbox 360 as it'll be the only white piece of kit in his front-room..

5: WNC

Twizlex3858d ago

That would be funnier if it wasn't so sad and pathetic.

TheMART3858d ago

o fack...

Motorstorm 1 wasn't AAA below 9 out of 10 just on 8.3:

Resistance 1 wasn't AAA, just on 8.7 still below that 9 out of 10:

Fable 2, Gears 2, Fallout 3 + exclusive DLC. Not only the games, online with the new dash XBL will even becoming more premium and PSN still looks like a PC collection of servers without a real good online community feeling.

Mr Bot3858d ago

i said motorstorm 2 not 1!!!! cant u read??
and resistance 2 not one!!!

u r comparing launch titles to third generation games here!!
motorstorm 2 > motorstorm 1
resistance 2 >>> resistance 1

u couldnt get it??

gears of war 1 >> resistance 1
gears of war 2 << resistance 2

TheMART3858d ago

Yes Mr botty thats what I meant. I just showed you what the originals scored. U didn't get it?!?!?!

The first parts weren't AAA, but promised to be so. Underdelivering. The second parts probably won't reach AAA too.

Gears 1 kicked Resistance 1.

Gears 1: 9.4 out of 10
R1: 8.7 out of 10

Gears 2 will do the same.

Mr Bot3858d ago (Edited 3858d ago )

something u dont get, u r here comparing launch titles to 3rd gen games!!

what an insane person u r?? the devs had no tools to optimize cell/RSX but now its different!

u could see the difference with uncharted,MGS4,GT prolog etc, if u couldnt see the difference between those games and motorstorm 1,resistance 1 then obviously ur words hold 0% credibility!

the graphics of R2 better than gears of war 2!
and motorstorm 2 have no equal in its genre!

it shows that u u have no material to argue about accept bringing the topic of launch titles!! besides who claimed those games will be AAA games??? u?

TheMART3857d ago

Yes everything progresses, so do the games of the 360. The standards for getting AAA rating are getting higher also. A game that got AAA rating two years ago would now get a lower score if it released today.

What I am saying is that Resistance sequel looks like Resistance 1.1 in graphics only the big bosses are really new. Furthermore nothing much to see. Motorstorm 2 about the same story there.

But hey, the 360 still has the most games AAA over 9 out of 10 average compared to the PS3

What's wrong with Elites? Especially with game installs coming.

Nostradavis3858d ago

I am on my third 360. I won't buy another. I don't care if they coat it in chocolate and add a BJ hole.

GameOn3858d ago (Edited 3858d ago )

Don't give the modders any ideas now.

White-Sharingan3858d ago (Edited 3858d ago )

can I have mine used?

glory holes are the way to go this generation
