Microsoft executive implies holiday release for next Xbox, console to have “tonnes of exclusives”

During the latest Major Nelson podcast, Microsoft chief of staff for interactive entertainment Aaron Greenberg takes some time to discuss the company’s next Xbox and how Microsoft will use the reveal event and E3 to portray its vision: We’re really going to tell one story across two events. So we’re going to start on the 21st and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform, really our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment. More interestingly, however, [...]

Rumor: First title from ex-Call of Duty devs will be an Xbox-exclusive

According to a report by Kotaku, the first game from Respawn Entertainment, formed by the creators of Call of Duty, will be exclusive to the next-generation Xbox. Well, let me specify. According to two sources, the game, which earlier trademarks indicate is called “Titan,” will be exclusive to the next-generation Xbox, while another source claims that the game will be exclusive to Microsoft console hardware. This includes the Xbox 360 and the next-gen Xbox. The title looks to be running on [...]

New details, live-action trailer for The Evil Within emerge, will leave you confused and scared

Thanks to an able-bodied NeoGAF user by the name of Dusk Golem, we now have more information pertaining to The Evil Within, which we reported on yesterday.

When Sebastian wakes up, he realizes he is in [...]

Rumor – Microsoft to use AMD for Xbox 720, IBM wallows in sadness

Rumor – Microsoft to use AMD for Xbox 720, IBM wallows in sadness

Other than the headline rhyming quite nicely, we have yet another Xbox 720-flavored rumor. According to Bloomberg, Microsoft will turn to AMD to provide processors to power the next-generation Xbox. More specifically, the next Xbox will allegedly shift to the x86 format, which will use an AMD system-on-a-chip that will combine powerful “Jaguar” CPUs with GPUs, according to the source. This shift, however, means that not only will Microsoft drop the Power PC technology designed by IBM, but that game [...]

Microsoft Studios’ creative director has some interesting words about “always-on”

Microsoft Studios’ creative director has some interesting words about “always-on”

Today, we reported on a rumor that the next Xbox will require an always-on connection in order to play games. Personally, I consider that somewhat absurd, but, Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth doesn’t seem to agree with me. Things start off innocently enough, though a disturbance in the Force can be felt:   And then things get a little ugly:   And now he becomes a jerk:   I see where he is coming from, but I don’t agree [...]

Is it ethical to disallow the use of used games?

Is it ethical to disallow the use of used games?

If rumors that surfaced roughly a week ago are to be followed, the next Xbox will no longer be able to play used games. Game discs will ship with one-time-use activation codes that will render them irrelevant to anyone else but the person who first played the game. Of course, reaction to this among those in the gaming community is predictably negative. A common theme seems to be that not many people can’t go around spending $60 on games anymore; [...]

Used games market still has an impact, says GameStop President

Used games market still has an impact, says GameStop President

In an interview with Forbes, GameStop President Tony Bartel emphasized the importance of the used games market. Used games generate more than $700 million in trade credit towards new games each year, and, according to Bartel, video game consumers agree. Based on “recent surveys,” 60% of video game consumers would be less likely to purchase a console that wouldn’t have the ability to play used games. Bartel would not want to see the used games market disappear. This is understandable, [...]

Microsoft doesn’t consider Valve a competitor

Microsoft doesn’t consider Valve a competitor

Speaking at Microsoft’s TechForum this week, Don Mattrick, president of Interactive Entertainment Business over at Microsoft, doesn’t really see Valve as a competitor. Regardless of Valve readying a living room system to call its own, Mattrick stated that, for him and Microsoft, Valve is not a competitor. Although Valve is “doing some innovative stuff,” says Mattrick, he believes that Apple, Google, Nintendo, and Sony products are “probably a little bit richer.” However, Mattrick added that “I love Gabe, I was [...]

Release date for Assassin’s Creed IV leaked, coming to next-gen consoles?

Release date for Assassin’s Creed IV leaked, coming to next-gen consoles?

Earlier today, we reported that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be making its ways to consoles later this year, but what wasn’t known was an exact release date. Well, thanks to a humongous “whoops” on Ubisoft’s part, we may have a concrete date, thanks to the image below: October 29, ladies and gentlemen. This is actually a hidden page on the game’s countdown site, and it just so happened to show a release date. In addition to the release [...]

Xbox 360 250GB Spring Bundle will include Darksiders 2 and Batman: Arkham City

Who needs to do spring cleaning when you can just sit on your lazy butt and play some video games. In probably one of a few last gasping efforts to give the Xbox 360 life before it gets cut down by its successor, Microsoft will release a 250GB Spring Value Bundle. Available only in “select major retail stores,” this bundle will include a 250GB Xbox 360, as well as a wireless controller, Darksiders 2 (disc), Batman: Arkham City (downloadable), and a [...]
