Late last week, the Web was afire with rumors that Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) would direct the film adaptation of Halo, the wildly popular Xbox and PC shooter. The choice seemed very plausible, given del Toro's visual flair and the fact his career path mirrored the project's executive producer, Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. However, now word has emerged that del Toro has not been selected--from Jackson himself. Speaking to the popular film site Dark Horizons, Jackson flatly said that no-one has been chosen to direct Halo. "We're talking to some people but we're going to be shooting that next year," he said.

Microsoft says the machine will be launched in Korea on February 24 and Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore on March 2.

Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable Review
Submitted By: Lost Alley
05 Dec 2005 09:47 | Xbox 360

Available at launch, the Xbox 360 VGA HD AV cable is a first-party AV cable that has a DV-15S VGA connector, stereo audio cables, and a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound optical output similar to the one found on the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable. Why the need of a VGA cable you may ask? Well, aside from the fact that many HDTVs have VGA inputs, many of us are stuck to a computer monitor and having the possibility to attach a console to the same monitor that you use with your desktop computer is definitely a relief. Head over to TeamXbox for the full review.

Where Have all my Lobbies Gone?

A Call to Arms!! Call of Duty 2 lack of any real lobbies has brought attention to the fact that Microsoft NEEDS online/Live functionality standards. You think Microsoft would have learned from past mistakes like with the release of MechAssault 1, which was a Live launch title. They launched that game without a lobby and people immediately complained. Sooner rather than latter Microsoft released a patch adding a lobby and the ability to see who was talking. To help show Microsoft this issue is important to us gamers, their customers, I have created a short but sweet petition.
