M$ are about to screw all you Xbots that bought at launch.Ha Ha.

BIadestarX6292d ago

Why do you consider this a screw? It sounds to me like you are already getting nervous. Besides is not like Sony is putting one of these in the core or handicap ps3 sku. I hope they do; heck I hope they even integrate a HD-DVD drive in it; this will not affect how games play or even look (tip: this is why one of the PS3 SKU does not have HDMI) I would happily buy another XBox 360 and give the one I have to a member of my family, or friend. Besides it comes out cheaper than buying a PS3.

Well if it did happen I have a year warranty with Gamestop that if anything happens to my system they will exchange it for a new one. So you know what I'll be doing if this happens before November.

TheMART6292d ago

Someone made made this himself at home.

This is bogus.

It could be that there will be a HDMI on the HD-DVD add on, because HD-DVD can do 1080p also for video output


I agree that this looks like a techie job or a hack. Why would MS add a relatively unsupported AV input in their new system and risk alienating early-adopters? They aren't sony!

I think that the HD-DVD add on will create the HDMI support people are looking at, with a cable or HDMI out from the hd-dvd.

xXbebofisherXx6292d ago

if its true or not microsoft has been in talks for an hdmi output and cable ever since december. they even subliminally annouced it at e3. and it doesnt bother me if i have to buy another 360 for the hdmi becuase i only paid uh nothing for my 360. so 2 360's for the price of one sounds cool to me. and yes most likly this is just a hoax to get us all happy and stuff, but who knows. this is something that has been talked about for months and it just might be coming true. i guess well find out whenever they actually "announce"" it or just say itll never happen.

Nodoze6292d ago

Now that the HDMI 1.3 spec is finalized (see articles on this site) it would make sense to see a connection on the 360.....with an internal HD-DVD drive. I think if MS makes a 3rd sku for a super premium Xbox it would be a stroke of pure genious! It would completely negate anything that Sony would be offering, and it would still be in line with the company message of giving gamers a choice. Speaking of choice, I would love to see a black 360....MS please make it so!!

THELANDSOFSAND6292d ago (Edited 6292d ago )

you could spray your 360's casing with black paint

I think a 3rd, more expensive Super premium would upset a lot of people, not sell well and would look like MS were scared of PS3's HDMI tech. PR and promotions would have a big problem with this. and 3 SKUs...

I really think a cable or adaptor from the HD-DVD add-on is MS's solution to this...

DEIx15x86292d ago

Microsoft would never add a third sku with that set up. The whole point of two is that you can pay for how ever much you want and if you schoose just upgrade latter when you have the money. If they add a third one like that they would kill that theory since that is not something that could be upgraded to. It would follow Sony's theory of forcing people to buy the expensive model if they want anything good and then just advertising the cheap one to show that the price is low.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake19h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga14h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx16h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga9h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H912h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

GooGobbler1d 3h ago

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66614h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5213h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher12h ago(Edited 12h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens5210h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner8h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

Nerdmaster23h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot16h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster4h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned15h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.
