IGN is reporting that an anonymous source told them that Microsoft has already sent the first batch of new Xbox consoles into production at a manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas. The company that owns the facility in question, Flextronics, manufactures the Xbox 360 and was also responsible for the manufacture of the original Xbox console.
Could Microsoft be lying about their plans - or their supposed lack thereof – for E3 2012?
Microsoft is now selling the 4GB model of the Xbox 360 - with a Kinect - for $99.
There’s a big catch, of course. You have to agree to pay $14.99 per month for an Xbox Live Gold account for 24 months to get the deal. ($14.99 x 24 = $359.76 + $99 = $458.76)
In other words, Microsoft is now baiting idiots into buying the 4GB model of the Xbox 360 with a Kinect on a payment plan that ends up costing them $86.54 more than it would cost to just buy the package with two years of Xbox Live Gold outright from Amazon.com.
A Target employee sent the photo embedded below to IGN. It confirms that Black Ops 2 a.) exists and b.) is due out on November 13th. So much for Activision’s big reveal.
It’s like DJ Hero. Except this is potentially dangerous to breakables in your living room.
Several pieces of gorgeous concept art for Halo 4 leaked yesterday. From the look of things, the artists at 343 Industries are taking big liberties with the traditional Halo armor design.
I think it all looks rather awesome, myself. I’m a particularly big fan of the multiplayer armor.
Microsoft and current Halo franchise developer 343 Industries announced today that Halo 4 hits stores on November 6th – Election Day here in the United States.
I wonder how many people are going to skip the election lines to buy this, instead?
The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition lands on the Xbox 360 in three days. It’s a must-buy.
I was on the fence about buying a Kinect. Until now. This alone has me completely sold.
Cliff Bleszinski has confirmed to Gamespot that Epic Games was working on some sort of Kinect title called Gears of War: Exile but that the project has been canceled.
Bleszinski declined to share details about the game or disclose a reason for its cancellation. However, given Epic’s history with “shooters on rails” (ex: Bulletstorm), it’s probably best.
This is one of the best parodies in years.
