  • Microsoft Won't Commit To Real-Money Transactions Across Xbox Live

    Unfortunately, Stephen Johnson might have jumped the gun a bit yesterday, when he applauded Microsoft (and rightly so!) for introducing real-money transactions for Xbox Live's upcoming "Games on Demand" service. The E3-announced feature allows users to purchase Xbox 360 games straight to their hard drive with a credit or debit card...

  • EA Executive Believes Xbox 360 Is "Maxed Out"

    It’s been just a week since Microsoft executive Shane Kim remarked to VentureBeat that his company believes the Xbox 360 has a 10-year lifecycle (thanks in large part to whatever Project Natal will eventually turn into).

  • Gears of War 2: Dark Corners Gameplay Trailer

    Fans are mixed on their opinions about the upcoming Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection that features both already released DLC and new material, but I'm just excited to hear the sweet, sweet voices of Marcus and Dom again.

  • Microsoft Discusses Hulu On 360 And Last.fm's Xbox Live Gold Exclusivity (Why?!)

    There were several social and media partnerships announced at Microsoft's pre-E3 press conference last week, including Facebook, Twitter and music streaming service Last.fm.

  • The Legendary Starfy E3 2009 Trailer

    Let's be honest: this trailer for The Legendary Starfy does not do the underwater adventure of a star shaped prince justice. In this latest chapter, Starfy must traverse the dangerous sea, change shapes to fight giant squid and more, all to help his new friend, an astronaut-suit wearing bunny named Bunston, recover his lost memory. Yeah. Listen....

    Although there was a veritable avalanche of exciting announcements at E3 2009, there was one thing that no one announced: A console price-cut. One industry big-wig, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, was disappointed that all the major platforms are holding prices steady. "I was disappointed not to see any sort of aggressive price...

  • Jumpgate Evolution E3 2009 Preview

    The one word that I could not help uttering almost constantly during my eyes-on time with NetDevil’s space-based MMO Jumpgate Evolution (PC) during E3 2009 was "Wow." NetDevil president Scott Brown demoed a few levels for me, and only gave me the briefest of views of a few battle scenarios and settings, and yet for as little as...
