    PrimeSense provides the best Kinect drivers yet!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 15 December 2010

    Well, this is only skeletal tracking, but it looks very fluid and latent free.  As with the launch of stock engines for game development, aka Unreal, I think we will see A LOT of development shops using engines like this to provide the core functions of Kinect integration, while layering on their specific requirements.  Looks pretty...

    Mass Effect is exclusive no more...

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 16 December 2010

    GREAT! Now that Mass Effect has gone FULLY multiplatform, maybe M$ will get off it’s haunches and get to producing exclusive content using potential Triple-A IPs in it’s library.  One of my favorite games on the old Xbox was Brute Force, and for the life of me, I can’t understand how the heck has M$ let this IP lay dormant for these many years with no significant movement...

    COD: Black Ops Technical Faceoff!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 November 2010

    After so many years, the results and so many multi-platform games still are a tough nut to crack for some developers.  It is going to be interesting to see how the new motion tracking systems factor into multi-platform titles, if at all, but for now, here’s some “lite” reading. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-call-of-duty-black-ops-faceoff  ...

    Windows Phone 7...

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 23 November 2010

    Has finally launched in the US, after already having a pretty stellar launch in EMEA, it was WEAK US launch, imho.  For those in those areas already using it, any tips and suggestions for new users?  It was CRAZY easy to get my hotmail and yahoo mail attached, which made it pretty simple to get my gamercard downloaded onto the phone.  I've downloaded some games trails, but...

    Microsoft is actually lowering the price of XBL, if you're smart...

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 03 September 2010

    There's been alot of hub-bub about the price increase for XBL, but for the most part, I simply shrug it off for several reasons. -          First off, my current membership expires in April 2013, and while I’m not certain as to what M$ plans are for people like myself, I’m banking on the fact that they won’t be able to retroactively...

    On-hand Cash of Apple, M$ and others...

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 15 August 2010

    These guys are loaded with cash out the ying-yang, so I think they are going to start making movies in the tech and entertainment space to lock-in capability.  Apple has $46 billion, but the others aren’t slouches either…”While dividends are the exception rather than the rule in the tech sector, large cash stockpiles are common. For comparison, Microsoft has $36.8 billion...

    Win 7 Slate vs. Ipad...video face off!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 11 August 2010

    I'm excited about a Win 7 slate on launch...It basically has everything I'm really looking for in the tablet market space...an even more portable platform to extend Win 7 for me.  The key is going to be the battery life of the device, and while I don't expect 10-12 hours, it's definitely go to be more than 6 to justify me dropping $400-600 on a device like...

    Prince of Persia Movie Thread

    in General Discussion, last active on on 07 June 2010

    I just got back from seeing the new Prince of Persia flick, and it was pretty darn good summer movie.  Did it break any new ground in summer movie flick…nope, except for one important category…it’s the best gaming source material film.  That’s not much of a compliment, given that most of the films in the genre are Uwe Boll’s drivel, but the film was...

    $90 million canned Halo MMO

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 17 April 2010

    We heard about this project last year after Ensemble shuttered it's doors, but I've got to wonder what happened to all the work put into the game?  The budgeted cost to make the game was $90 million, so you have to figure that close to a 1/3 of that money had to have been spent on the game when the plug was pulled.  Imho, M$ should jsut look to finish the game, and launch it, along with...

    Apple's new gaming pattern!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 April 2010

    This patent application is basically for EXACTLY what I had suggested the Zune HD NEEDED to be a more effective gaming platform, about 6 months ago...hmmm...do we have Apple Employees on this freaking site!?!??!  I mean...this is EXACTLY, and I mean EXACTLY what I was referring to...it's just kinda gfunny to now see this as an apple patent,  I guess maybe I should have try to get a...

    The Pricing for MW2's first map pack is riddiculous!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 15 March 2010

    I thought the game was fine, and all, but 1200 points for 5 frigging maps is just insane!  I'm certianly not going to tell anybody how to spend their money, but that is just simply too much, imho.  We need to change Bobby Kotick's name to Gordon Gekko...given all the soap opera shit surrounding the Inifinite Ward break-up, this just icing on the...

    Microsoft Makes a Peace Offering to Live 1.0 Users

    Anybody eligible for this offer?  I've had my account for a while, but I changed my account name from the original xbox to xbox 360, so I'm not...bummer. http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/22224/Microsoft-Makes-a-Peace-Offering-to-Live-10-Users/ More than a few gamers called foul when Microsoft announced the impending shutdown of Xbox Live 1.0 last month. Aiming to provide a bit of consolation,...

    Microsoft, Sony Compared in XBL, PSN Numbers

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 February 2010

    It's is going to be interesting to see how Sony reports it's subs, once they institute a payment plan, as M$ threw that little curveball about concurrent users.  BTW, does anybody know if Sony considers memeber to the Station in these numbers?  I've got a carryover account from my days in Star Wars Galaxies, Planetside and other online fare...also Burning...

    Xbox Live for Mobile?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 15 February 2010

    THIS, is the primary reason I bought a Zune HD, over the Ipod Touch, so if M$ can deliver this sooner, rather than later, I'll be a very happy camper! http://kotaku.com/5471885/microsoft-to-unveil-xbox-live-mobile-today While we at Kotaku have known Xbox Live     has been coming to Windows Mobile for a while now, it appears that later today, Microsoft will finally get...

    Another Molyneaux interview - Religion in Games

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 11 February 2010

    This subject is so touchy, and will get you LOTS of airtime on Foxynews in a heartbeat...and not in a nice way.  I can't wait for Fable 3, and to see how this is implemented ino the game.  If you're overthrowing the ruler, can you then impose social changes as well, such as religion?  I really hope they provide a strategic aspect to the game to build your empire...so instead of a...

    Is Microsoft Game Studios just lazy or what?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 27 January 2010

    As the release of Mass Effect 2 approaches, the fervor over the exclusivity to the game to the 360, wrt to consoles is once again heating up, and to be perfectly honest, I think M$ has to bear the brunt of it.  Well, to be specific, I’d have to say Microsoft Game Studios deserves to bear the brunt, as they have been a waste of money, imho.  The current first party/exclusive...

    Staggering adoption of Win7 by Steam users!

    These numbers are far greater than I expected at this point...I thought maybe 10%...max...WOW!  At this rate, I think it overtakes them by the end of the year. http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/01/23/steam-shows-massive-adoption-of-windows-7-by-gamers/ So, get this: while Windows 7 only accounts for 6% of the global operating system market, 23% of Steam gamers are using Windows 7!

    Halo games based after Halo 3...The Return provides some clues?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 20 January 2010

    I was on vacation this past weekend, and I got a chance to read the new book, Halo:Evolutions: Essential Tales of the Halo Universe, and one of the stories, in particular, got me thinking about where Halo games might head, for the next console.  The book is a must-read for any Halo and sci-fi fan, imho, but I've heard so many comments from people in the past, asking what's the big deal about...

    New DA:O DLC up on XBL

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 14 January 2010

    As we await Awakening, this DLC should tie me over nicely...of course, I'm getting Mass Effect 2 on release day, and will start to dedicate all of my waking hours to that game...at least as much as I can.  Anyway, this si s400 pts, and I'm off to make sure it's downloading okay: http://dragonage.bioware.com/addon/rto  ...
