Well. RIP the old thread. Bonjour to Mk II. I don't know if this'll last, seeing as the last one was deleted, but here goes!

Guess it'd be a good start to dish old Gamertags...mine is PyroMittens.  Anyone else wanna get the ball rolling?

Great 360 E3 show this year tbh...

The Secret Of Monkey Island (AMIGA/PC classic) is coming to xboxlive arcade !!!!!!!!!

 

http://www.teletext.co.uk/gamecentral/news/3a2bfb3d57dcc1376901ce5937602e04/Guybush+Threepwood+retur...

 

 Guybush Threepwood returns?

It seems LucasArts has finally started to wake up to fan demands, with what seems to be confirmation of The Secret Of Monkey Island on Xbox Live Arcade.

There's been no official announcement, but the German age ratings board hardly seems likely to have just made it up.

Fellow graphic adventure classic Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis is included with the Wii version of Indiana Jones And The Staff Of Kings

 

 

This is great news ........The greatest point and click adventure of all time IMO.

 

Cant wait.

Just been reading an interesting article on Final Fantasy 13, an anlaysis of the demo.

 

They seem to think there is nothing being done in the engine that cant be done on the 360 and they even go on to say they believe the 360 code will perform better. With the only exception being the HDR lighting on the 360 may need to be dropped but apart from that they should be identicle with the 360 having better performance.

 

All judged on a demo of course so much might change but its an interesting read and still leave me undecided on what machine i will eventually get the game on.

I'd be surprised if it's any different to most dual-platform releases.

The whole dual-platform project was started way before they announced it to the media. It probably happened so early that a lot of the coding was even done on the xbox first. The idea that there is a finished copy for the PS3 ready to ship, but not being released because they have to code the xbox version from scratch, is in the realms of fantasy really.

Nice cherry picking.   How about these bits?


As it happens, 3D performance is the least of our concerns. The one thing that surprised us about the demo more than anything else was its incredible reliance on streaming HD video from the optical disc. Even in a demo you can finish in 30 minutes, there’s a ton of it. Assuming the final PS3 game is on a single layer 25GB BD, conceivably the game would work as is across four DVDs on 360. But all bets are off should the game migrate onto a dual layer 50GB BD as has been suggested.

Lower quality video is of course an option"

If Xbox owners are lucky, it will be a BD25 and come on 4xDVD and downgraded visuals, however considering MGS4 was a BD50, and the FFXIII demo was over 5GB, for a 30 minute demo, it's far more likely to be a BD50, and thefore upto 8x DVDs for the 360.   Those pics of the Xbox box set might turn out to be closer to the bone than originally thought...

http://www.finalfantasyunion.com/news/final-fantasy-xiii-demo-a-complete-waste-of-time--372.html

It's also been said, the PS3 final version will be look significantly better than the demo, as it uses a really old build of the engine from 2008, so whilst the 360 might just about be able to keep up with an old build of the engine (with HDR disabled), the chances of it staying able to keep up are remote.   The magical 10MB of EDO memory that's not even enough for 720p can only do so much...

That's a good idea! or a certain amount of legit reports should block them. Funny thing is even the PS3 only owners don't like him! His "toast" thread was good though!!
