Xbox Live Vision
It’s good to see you! Well, at least it will be as it looks like the 360 digital camera that we have been promised for so long now has a date. Accordind to Major Nelson’s blog cast which aired this past Sunday, the Xbox Live Vision camera peripheral will hit the streets September 19th in both North America and Europe. Now you will not only be able to chat with friends but see them as well! I think this will only cause more moments of hilarity, also it may not now be not as good an idea to get to drunk and play Live (lol). Most of us already have a camera-enabled game in UNO, now Cru can see me give him the finger when he drop’s me a "Pick 4" card! We are not done with this camera yet…
Rainbow Six: Vegas
…World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions, Totem Ball, Untitled Pinball Game, and Rainbow Six: Vegas will all make use of the camera plus much more! Imagine playing Rainbow with your buddies and it is actually them! Also it may make your adversarial games a little more intense. Xbox Live Vision is on my shopping list already as it should be on yours, because after all I think it would be good to see you.
What else is new and exciting from SG’s point of view:
I have ben checking out the Shadowrun forum’s recently. Shadowrun was recently announced at E3 as one of MSG premier titles for the new year launching simultaniously on 360and Vista and is bases upon the pen and paper RPG series. Apparently a lot of people are very disturbed that a) Microsoft is re-writing the ‘cannon’ and b) It is no longer an RPG but a Team-based FPS! I am interested to see what happans with this IP, will it be rejected or embraced in the end. What do you think?
Rockstar Games Presents: Table Tennis is a winner! Hopefully a Marketplace demo will be made available for thos e who did not take the plunge.
The Dashboard Update is nearly here! Check this link for all the details
Next game purchase: Moto GP’06
Slowly chipping away at Oblivion
Once again, where are my GRAW downloads?
That is all for now, until next time play some UNO and stay frosty!
