So How Does Microsoft Kick Things Off?
With A Lil' Red Ring of death


Microsoft kicked off GDC with red! Here, the BBC spotted this Xbox 360 demo kiosk that has been RRoD'd. No way to know if this console was made before things were "bad" or after things got "good." But think about it this way: All those other GDC Xbox 360s are working fine! So now all that there's left for you to do is go check your Xbox 360, make sure it still works and pray.

I am at the Seattle airport about jump on the plane to San Francisco for this year’s Game Developers Conference. I will be down there along with TriXie and the Gamerscoreblog team providing coverage of all the announcements and activity. Keep an eye on Xbox.com for complete event coverage, including video coverage of all the announcements and Keynote. In addition, we’ll also be posting special Inside Xbox video as well. For Wednesday morning’s Keynote with John Schappert, I’ll have the complete audio posted Wednesday afternoon for you to hear the action first hand.

This is pure, 100% rumour. As unreliable as any information on the internet. Imbibe with requisite large quantities of sodium chloride. It is presented here merely for entertainment and wild speculation purposes. As always, please... no wagering.

From the Playstation forums:

quote:

The following is from a Private Message with someone to remain nameless. I am not gonna name names and throw this person under the bus.

"Do you know what PSedge tools are?

Basically, it's a development environment filled with code libraries that allow developers to have an easier time integrating their game code to work with the PS3.

Anyways, very exciting stuff happened on Monday (The one that just past). The PSedge dev kits, recieved an update. So whatever, we take a look, and the major addition, was that the TRC's were updated, and the new HOME libraries were brought in.

What does this mean? A TRC is a checklist of things a game must have for Sony to approve, in order for them to give the "Go-Ahead" on releasing the game on their console. This checklist has things like: Can't crash, Load times under 10 seconds, and things like that.

Two new ones were added: A game must be able to integrate into Home, a game must support "Accomplishments". Right there, two important things, the PS3 system for achievements is called "Accomplishments", and Home is coming out VERY VERY VERY Soon.

Then, we got a changelog, and in-game XMB is almost worked out. Every game that's coming out now, supports in-game XMB, every game that already came out, has to get patched. (Naturally, only first party games will get a patch, I doubt Ubisoft is going to patch a.ssassin's Creed).

So yeah, it boils down to, Sony got everything figured out. I don't know what's the hold up, but from a developers perspective, HOME is set up and completed, and In-Game XMB is on the verge of being completed and released."



It sounds about right to me. There's supporting evidence for the XMB stuff all over the place - the system-level "game rooms" in the Lost Planet PS3 demo; the Accomplishments in DMC4; the custom soundtracks in SSHD and HV Bowling with XMB interfaces; the microphone access in Burnout Paradise; also in-game messaging in Burnout, Rock Band, and a bunch of others... it seems like the hooks have been in place for some time, waiting for the final bit (the Home/PS button) to tie it all together. Also, I will not be surprised at all to see some games "left behind" in the patching process, and it will probably always be true for some initial PS3 titles that they don't support the complete featureset because the developer or publisher didn't want to go back and do the work. X360 will always have that consistency a step further because of their tightly controlled process right form launch.

As for HOME, well it had better be shipping soon, it's been delayed for a while now. Really want to see an open beta soon, I'm quite curious to see how it's received.
