Microsoft has reportedly started to replenish stock of Xbox 360s in American retail channels. Xbox 360 has been in agonisingly short supply since the console's November 22nd launch, but GameSpot reports that some of the remaining pre-orders are now being filled. Microsoft UK declined to comment as to whether it's a situation reflected on this side of the Atlantic. "Xbox does not announce details of shipments, but I can tell you that we're on track to meet our 90 day forecast of 2.75 to 3.0 million units," a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz this lunchtime.

360 Games Hacked – First mod-chip 'within weeks'
Submitted By: News Bot
21 Dec 2005 10:05 | Xbox 360

Spong.com reports that the first mod-chips for the 360 will be available within a month. Speaking to Spong.com under terms of anonymity, one source close to the research and development of some well known current-generation chips said, “We've been seeing partial success from some corners [in China] though nothing that could go on sale yet.” This paints a dark picture of the console industry and the aggressive blight it suffers. “Everyone is working on a full-functioning 'do everything' chip that will take apart the 360 and let users do what they will, though we expect a first-generation bypass device that will allow back-ups within weeks. The first on the market is likely to be complex and might not be particularly good, though that's just a stopgap before real chips become available.”

LoveFOOTBALL for Xbox 360

21 Dec 2005 07:41 | Xbox 360

Japanese game publishers love throwing announcement parties and today over at the Japanese soccer museum in Tokyo, Namco went ahead with one of their own. The title revealed? None other than Namco's latest showing of commitment to the Xbox 360 console: LoveFOOTBALL. Rather than having a floating camera showing all the players on the field at one time, LoveFOOTBALL's camera will always be placed close up and directly behind the controlled character as if one was playing a 3rd person action game. Namco hopes that this will give players with a highly detailed view of what soccer is really like in the heat of the action.

Experts: Online Gaming Can Kill
Submitted By: News Bot
19 Dec 2005 08:50 | Xbox 360

Following the recent death of another Korean man who died during a marathon online gaming session, Korean experts give reasons for gaming fatalities. Two people have died in Korean Internet cafes since November, and doctors are pointing to dark, smoky, poorly ventilated environments combined with utter exhaustion. -- “People who haven’t slept for a long time usually don’t realize how exhausted or stressed they are,” said Dr. Song Hyeong-gon, a Korean ER doctor. “Because they are stressed by the obsession with winning the game, they consume a considerable amount of energy. In such a physically exhausted condition, exposure to bright colors or stimulating images on the screen is likely to irritate the cerebral cortex and can cause sudden death.”

19 Dec 2005 08:11 | Systems | Xbox 360

No, this isn't from a guy that talked to a guy that knew a guy who's brother's sister had heard it from Kojima. This is straight from the source. In the interview Hideo said he would enjoy developing a MGS game for Microsoft's consoles, as the online capabilities of MGS 3 would combine perfectly with the online capabilities of PC and Xbox Live. He went on to say that MGS 4 would be technically possible on the Xbox 360 or a PC. The only reason he hadn't developed for the X360 is the fact that they were still busy working on MGS 3 when the dev kits were released, and thus were too far behind other developers to stay ahead of the competition on the X360. For the full interview (Available in video format and textbased.) see the link below.
