Stealth update on Major Nelson's blog

http://majornelson.com/

New display support. Because you asked for it, we are adding 16X10 over VGA or HDMI, and support for 1440x900 or 1680x1050.

Play from hard drive. Copy your games from the game disc and play directly from the hard drive. Not only will the drive not spin, but load times are quicker, as well. Of course, you will still need the disc in the tray to prove you own the game.

Nice. Finally a purpose for having a bigger HD. I wonder if this will stop things like the Mass Effect texture pop in and the stuttering in something like Lost Odyssey. But lazy programmers could ruin it. The least appealing thing about the PS3 is the mandatory installs (especially as it makes it harder to flick between games) and I don't want that coming to the 360....

Meh..I respectfully disagree. I've seen games on both systems, many of my friends own XBox360's, and I will probably own one here soon, but graphically the PS3 has been superior with exclusives. Anytime it's multiplatform, they have to limit themselves to the XBox360's shortcomings.

Considering the PS3 is technically the more powerful machine, I have always wondered if multiplatform titles got held back a little because of that. I wouldn't refer to it as shortcomings but I can't necessarily argue with that thought either.

No. I'm simply saying that your comment about 360s "sub-par" graphics is ridiculous. I'm well aware of the amazing, complex 7 cell processor architecture, but the different between the two consoles is not even close to call "sub-par".
It may get better lighting, more complex graphical processing, better sound, etc... but it is by no means TOWERING over the 360s performance. Your buddies must have their consoles hooked up to a SDTV.

Game developers don't have enough time or budget to develop multi-platform games seperately, so they have to make them for one, and port them over to the other.

The bright spot is FFXIII has been in development for some time now, so maybe they will be somewhat independent of each other.

I guess the good news is that FFXIII - versus remains exclusive?

No, I agree, it's not towering over the 360's performance. It is visibly better though. "Sub-par" would make sense, if I would consider the PS3 "par" and the XBox 360 slightly lower. Sub-par.

They get held back because the PS3 is the second coming of the Sega Saturn.. it's extremely hard to write for and very complex from all the options the PS3 gives... not a bad thing.

Yep - sony dicked the dog on it. They made the hardware entirely too complex, and costly. Unfortunately PS4, if it's even released, may have the same problems.

See the common theme? I believe Sega had some proprietary system that they could use to better port these games. I read something about it somewhere but I can't find the link.

I've still got a Saturn hooked up with the Action Replay 5 in 1 plus (memory card, action replay cheat device, 4 meg ram cart, 1 meg ram cart, and import converter).

Check out the gameplay.

good shit. Nintendo came out with a new accessory for the WiiMote:
MotionPlus puts better control in your motion control (http://www.nintendowiifanboy.com/2008/07/14/wiimotionplus-puts-better-control-in-your-motion-control/)


Concerned that motion controls aren't quite precise enough to get the job done? No worries -- Nintendo's on it. While we expect more details at tomorrow's E3 press briefing, a press release has surfaced for the Wii MotionPlus, an add-on for the Wii remote that "allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player's arm position and orientation." That opens up nearly as many questions as it answers, so we'll be watching tomorrow's conference even more excitedly. If things get more any more intense around here, well, we just might explode.

Dear Xbox LIVE Member,

When we launched Xbox 360 in November 2005, Xbox LIVE was integrated directly into the console. Back then, Xbox 360 was the first system to deliver access to experiences beyond just the disc in the tray. With the Xbox guide and dashboard you had access to everything on your console as well as your community.

We also imagined that Xbox experience would continuously improve over time, through the power of software.

Since launch, you’ve always pushed us to continuously innovate. It is because you spoke with one loud voice that we added new features like background downloading, 1080p support, movies and TV shows, video chat, a Marketplace blade and instant messaging.

Over time, as we’ve delivered more and more content into the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, we’ve heard from many of you that it has become increasingly difficult to find the games and content you want.

And that brings us to today.

Because of your feedback, we started rethinking the entire Xbox experience. What we discovered was that we could not only provide a better experience for you, but also something that reaches out to new audiences.

What John Schappert unveiled for the world on stage at E3 was just a sneak preview, so I wanted to share some deeper details on some of the new features in the new Xbox experience.

Here is a look at some additional features you will find interesting:

Play from hard drive. Copy your games from the game disc and play directly from the hard drive. Not only will the drive not spin, but load times are quicker, as well. Of course, you will still need the disc in the tray to prove you own the game.

Access Xbox LIVE Marketplace on the Web. Browse and purchase Marketplace content whenever you want from Xbox.com and it downloads automatically to your console. Purchase that new map, television episode, the latest Xbox LIVE Arcade game or set up a movie to watch when you get home from work.

Dashboard built into the new Xbox Guide. For everyone who loves the blades interface, it’s not going away; they are now built directly in to the new Xbox guide. Every feature and option is available right from the guide. You can even access your full games library at all times. No matter where you are (in dash or in game), immediately call up your games played list and directly launch a game.

LIVE Party system. Create a party of up to eight friends, and stay with them from one game to another, or watch a Netflix movie together, or share a slideshow of your personal photos. It works with all Xbox 360 titles, not just upcoming games. LIVE Party allows up to eight people to chat in the dashboard, so you can meet up before playing.

Xbox LIVE Primetime. This whole new category of games is going to give you more reasons to get online with your friends. Games will support everything you’d expect, like Achievements and leader boards, but many of these games will include real prizes. You can invite your friends, and even set a reminder for an upcoming show. Each game is broadcast simultaneously, so everyone is answering the same questions. Many events will have a live host, calling the shots as they happen.

Avatars. Your online identity started as a Gamertag - it then grew into a personalized Gamercard. Now, it has evolved even further into avatars. You can express your style, check out new outfits and share this with the community. Avatars will also be integrated into Xbox LIVE Arcade games, LIVE Party, as well as retail games.

New display support. Because you asked for it, we are adding 16X10 over VGA or HDMI, and support for 1440x900 or 1680x1050.

This is only the beginning. Over the next few months, we will share more details on the upcoming changes.

See you online,

I dont think that there is anything better than a fierce rivalry like this. All 3 companies trying to become more innovative only helps all of them.

I own a 360, a Wii, and a PS3, but I'm definitely a PS3 Fanboy.

Same here. Last generation I favored the PS2 over the Xbox, even though I had both. PS2 just had more quality titles.

I also hate EA, though I will buy Mercs 2...used. EA won't see a penny of my money.

It was then and there I learned RPG's can control your life with relative ease, they hold a much more powerful grip than CP could ever hope to have. That's why I never even considered playing WoW.

The main reason the PS3 fans are so up-in-arms about this isn't because of possible delays, or even quality hits, these are just silly arguments to hide the reality that Final Fantasy XIII had become the one of the final justifications for owning a PS3, only to find that this argument is suddenly made moot by a mutli-platform release.

Nintendo had a freaking stranglehold on the market at that point. Super Nintendo had been out for 4 years, and N64 released 1 year after PS1. The 64 was very successful. How old are you, do you remember any of this stuff?

I am old enough to have played the Atari 2600 in 1983. N64 did NOT have many good games. Also, they cost way way way to much. 50 bucks for ps1 games or 70 for n64 games. hmmm.. thats a hard choice. Then again, who am i kidding, i had both systems.

They kill people in the show.. Great add on with the PS2 family friendly console package..

n64 had some great first party games. But it failed because almost every significant 3rd party developer jumped to Sony.

Valiant

Hahaha, WOW.

Amazing revisionist history.

Yeah.. I had a ps1.. it started very slow for titles.. But it kept getting better.. It was superior to my n64..

I think I misread what he posted. He was actually calling the N64 a failed system, which I can agree with.

Resistance 2 looked as dull as the first.The visuals were nice, but it was so immersion-breakingly scripted. Scripted presentations can work, and scripted games (hi there, Half-Life) can work, but there was no sense of urgency there.

I should give Zipper more credit, but with no live gameplay, I just don't care yet.

Guess I don't need to waste my time watching Sony's presser based on what I have seen here. As long as they had owned the market, they got lazy. Their pressers have been complete shit the last 3 years as they think just by showing up they will own everyone.

Resistance 2 was the only highlight of that press conference the graphics didn't even look that good. Killzone 2 must be way off if Sony just practically ignored it.

Would have liked to at least have the 80 GB HD though. I will eventually put my own drive in it later though so I guess it is not that big of a deal. That is the one thing Sony owned MS on. MS and their shit proprietary HD.
