Submitted By: News Bot
04 Jan 2006 09:36 | Xbox 360

Online retailer GameStop has included the game, currently available on the Xbox and adapted from the PC original, in a list of upcoming titles. The Xbox 360 version has been slapped with a tentative March release date in the US. Now, retailer reports can often be about as accurate as a blind sniper, but this little whisper has some decent evidence behind it. Ubisoft itself has reportedly confirmed that Far Cry Instincts will be coming to the Xbox 360 to US magazine Game Informer, and even elaborated that the game would include new missions and upgraded visuals to take advantage of the Xbox 360’s power.

Xbox 360 Supply Still Failing to Meet Demand - Analysts
Submitted By: News Bot
04 Jan 2006 08:52 | Xbox 360

As Xbox 360 units continue to fly out of stores as soon as they arrive, US analysts have predicted that stock shortages could mean Microsoft fails to meet its current quarter sales targets. In a new report, Goldman Sachs analyst Richard Sherlund wrote that although it was hard to establish exactly how many Xbox 360s have been shipped globally so far, he believes the figure may stand at as little as 1.3 million units - which could make it tough for Microsoft to reach its goal of 3 million sales by the end of this quarter.

Report: 30 million online console gamers by 2009
Submitted By: HyperBear
03 Jan 2006 19:04 | Systems | Xbox 360 | Playstation 3 | Revolution

A new study by In-Stat reveals that online gaming will be big in the next generation of consoles. Okay, so we kind of already knew this, but it's nice to have a researched report as evidence. The study predicts that the number of "worldwide console and handheld online gaming subscribers...could exceed 30 million by 2009." In-Stat believes Microsoft's Xbox Live service will see "just under 50% annual subscriber growth between 2004 and 2009." Whether or not we see those numbers in 2009, In-Stat decrees, depends on the online plans Sony chooses for its PlayStation 3. According to the report: "Sony currently believes that a paid service is too large a barrier to console online gaming, and uses free online play primarily to reinforce customer loyalty."

Richard Doherty, an analyst from research firm Envisioneering Group, predicts that tomorrow Bill Gates’ main message at his CES keynote will focus Windows Vista, the next-generation Windows, but Doherty also thinks Gates will talk about HD DVD as part of the Xbox 360. Microsoft has denied in several opportunities that it is planning a HD DVD upgrade for the Xbox 360, but last year Bill Gates said that the Xbox 360 video may incorporate in the future the next-generation DVD format developed by Toshiba.

The lawsuit brought by a Chicago man displeased with the Xbox 360's overheating problems is due to be heard on January 10th, but Microsoft are trying to get it thrown out of court before it even begins. It seems that Robert Byers hasn't even contacted customer support about the problems with his own 360--and it's not even clear his 360 is malfunctioning. He may be bringing the lawsuit on the strength of others' complaints, which will make for an interesting argument in court.

SC4 UBISOFT TELL OF XBOX360 GRAPHICS POWER
Submitted By: dcdelgado
03 Jan 2006 12:47 | Xbox 360

GS: How are you taking advantage of the Xbox 360 hardware? DR: The Chaos Theory engine is arguably the best engine available for the Xbox, and it has allowed us to really focus on unleashing the power of the X360. Our main technical challenges have been to multithread the engine, which gives us an insane amount of resources to spend on things like environments, artificial intelligence, and the like. For instance, in SC4 X360 we were able to stage full-fledged jail riots, and even a civil war, with conventional AI. Ultimately, we are pushing the X360 as hard as we can, so that we can create environments of a size and complexity never seen before and populate them with complex, clever AI in large quantities. To say we could never accomplish this on current-gen hardware is an understatement: We couldn't dream of this on the Xbox.

There has been a lot of coverage recently about the failure of the Japanese Xbox 360. And those reports are very true. It is one of the weakest system launches in Japanese history, only topped perhaps by the Japanese launch of the Atari Jaguar. Many seem to think that people in Japan won’t buy American products out of political reasons, which couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact Japanese youth love American and western products, they just don’t think much of the Xbox 360 and with good reason.
