XBox 360 Update Preview


Recommended Posts

Okay, I got the preview update for the XBox 360 and so far I love it. Not because of the Zune thing. Not because of the Facebook or Twitter thing. The primary reason I love it is for the Last.FM addition. Easy menus, large selection of music, all sorts of good stuff. If they ever put a web browser on the XBox 360 I would never even need to turn on my computer.

Why would I use a portable computer? I don't do anything that would require one.

 

The right analog stick can be used as a mouse, and use the chatpad accessory on the controller. The chatpad is a full QWERTY keyboard.

I'm looking forwards to the SKY functionality in the UK starting, well tomorrow.

 

AND I rarely use my computer outside of work now, well unless I am posting on here.

I came up with Crate 3.0 technology.

Too bad all this stuff is kind of unuseable to me. I have one of the latest rev. xboxes and that thing is insanely loud. I can only theorise that an extra-woosh fan has been added as an additional measure to combat over-heating. I actually have to crank up the volume quite a bit over what I'd normally use (and what I use with the PS3).

 

It's a pity, really, because barring the blu-ray support on the PS3 side, it would IMHO clearly be the superior console without these issues.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

I didn't know you could see the future.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Digital delivery is the future.

 

Probably. But to some of us, and I mean those who live in relatively civilised countries but still have itunes only delivering music and the video options of x360/ps3 consisting of a handful of music videos, that future seems awfully distant when compared to those who've become used to hulu/bbc iplayer/hd movies via itunes/netflix.

Or 1TB big BluRay Discs, which works on current hardware, and can play 1080p video with uncompressed sound, without any delay or prebuffering :(

I think digital distribution is one possible future but there will be people, like myself, who still want physical products for their money. 0's and 1's free. Physical products we spend money on.

Would it be the same for you if you could buy something digital and burn it on the cd? Cause that's the only physical thing you're getting in that box.

 

I don't mind digital distribution mostly, the only thing that would bother me would be the collector/limited editions. I REALLY don't care for extra guns/armor/bullets/whatever else in game. I like my pip-boys and night vision goggles real and on my shelf, even if they're made of cheap plastic.

That's a very weird attitude. If you were only paying for the physical stuff then games would cost ~$5 at most(the price of the blank DVD, paper crap and case). You have always been paying for the content, the medium has always been physical out of necessity.

 

But you're welcome to go down with the ship :ermm:

Nope. >_<

 

I'm not asking you to like it, I'm telling you what's happening.

 

The industry is sick of the killing that retail is making HENCE, digital delivery avoids retailers, so its one less person taking a munch of the pie.

and retail is sick of companies going digital... with no retail, no consoles, so suck it up, like all other industries which have to live with second hand sales, i dont see a reason why software or music should be the only exceptions allowed...

 

and besides one or two more DRM server shutdown and you can bet your ass, European Commission and their US counterpart will have big drama running about it, because of the first sale doctrine, which is in almost every civilised world law...

 

and on other half the future of internet in the eyes of every single ISP are download caps... good luck with digital distribution with harsh caps like most of EU and Australia/New Zealand have :lol:

digital IS the future, but how long until thats the ONLY avenue to buying new movies/games etc? my guess is about 20+ years, or never.

 

you can still buy new records, despite the invention of tapes, cd's, mp3's and itunes.


Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.
