16002  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Is Xbox Live down again? on: October 19, 2006, 05:27:40 AM

16003  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So, why was Xbox Live down yesterday? on: October 18, 2006, 06:56:37 PM
xbox live came back up today 3 hrs late(thats when i downloaded the trial of lumnies)

but there has still been a lot of problems,xbox live keeps going down,a lot of people have been complaining and going apeshit

xbox.com forums still arent up...only a homepage(where you CAN NOT sign in)...on majornelson.com there are a lot of people complaining,and he says that they are trying to sort out all the problems


but seen as this isnt a dashboard update...i am not looking forward to november,when the real dashboard update comes

yeah thats about right(£19.99 same price as a DVD)...your full price games are $60 arent they?..if so then that is more or less the same

PS2 and xbox 1 games have been £32.99 for some time..full price 360 games are £50

and maybe the platanium price has gone down since,im not sure....PS2 was practically dead in the water until 2 weeks ago when kingdom hearts 2 was relased,last week metal gear 3 sub..whatever..and now bully next week...come next month when FF12 comes out,and then that will be the end of ps2 for me

if platinum have gone down it will proberbly only be £17.99

also we pay 17.5 % tax on everything because we are british mugs

if like me,you download a lot of stuff,or have a lot on that hard drive....and (god forbid)something does go wrong with the 360,you will be applauding microsoft for at least making the hard drive detachable>>>>>this feature is whats making me watch with anticipation at the people who will buy a ps3...if the same happens tothem,...they have to start over becasue the ps3s HDD is like xbox1s...not detachable

Untrue- if anything the PS3's HDD setup is better than MS's since the PS3 can take any 2.5" SATA drive so upgrading it should be much cheaper. 

what..you CAN detatch it?
16010  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bully. Who's getting and who's got impressions. on: October 17, 2006, 07:08:56 PM
it isnt out until a week on friday here under the name 'canis canem edit'...good news is though is that for some reason it is only £22.99(platanium titles are only £19.99)

the controller is fantastic,prolly best one ever(IMO)....when being with that controller for a while then going back to the duelshock 2,the DS2 feels light and cheap....and you realise that the DS2s analogue sticks,just aren't in a natural place

but it wasnt dead rising that i thought made a the 360 loud,it was PGR3..didnt notice it as much with dead rising....maybe used to it by now,as PGR3 was my first game

The problem is that Microsoft doesnt understand what japanese want and they dont seem to know how to do business in Japan at all. I was hoping that Microsoft would do well in Japan this time but they screwed it up again. they need to buy a japanese company and let them run the japanese side of it with complete control. Launching the XBOX 360 with no JRPG's and no titles that the japanese really like was stupid, the big japanese games we heard about before launch are still not out, the japanese could care less if there is a WWII FPS and Madden on the system so the XBOX died hard in Japan again.

thats why i told bill gates and peter moore to buy square enix......they didnt listen Tongue
16014  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ideal Game Length For You? on: October 16, 2006, 10:13:23 AM
30-40 hrs for me,as some of my favourite games are by squareenix and this is usually the norm

i hate games that i wait for ages and the graphics and playability are all top notch but it lasts less than 10 hrs,that means it lasts me for a few days at the most and £50($60)isnt great for a few days
16015  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Interesting poll in Famitsu Weekly on next-gen systems on: October 16, 2006, 07:19:27 AM
the japanese people want to swallow their pride and admit that japan arent the only ones on the market...IMO xbox 1 took both ps2 and the cube to the cleaners
16016  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Looking for Max Payne-type experience. Which should I buy? on: October 15, 2006, 07:02:36 AM
you should save up for stranglehold...and also the upcoming alan wake is made by the makers of max payne...and that looks fantastic
16017  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: FFXI: Voice support? on: October 15, 2006, 07:00:34 AM
yeah me and myto talk on headset through our xbox live friends list when playing the game(saves on all that typing)

im just hoping that xbox will update so you can have four friends in group chat,as a few others in our FF11 linkshell have the 360 version

Downtime for Xbox.com and Xbox Live
We've got some scheduled maintenance coming up and want to let everyone know that both the Xbox Live® service and Xbox.com will be offline and unavailable starting at midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday October 17, 2006 for up to 24 hours. We know you've got some questions, so here are some answers:

Q: Why? Why? Why?

A: Because we're adding some cool stuff. And we have to take the service and website offline in order to do it. We're not doing it to make you mad … really.

Q: What kind of cool stuff?

A: Secret cool stuff that we'll tell you about when we're back online October 18. Other stuff we'll be talking about later in the fall.

Q: Is this a Dashboard update?

A: Nope.

Q: So what's going to happen exactly? What's it going to look like for me?

A: For the first hour or two that Xbox.com and Xbox Live are down, you'll get error messages—when you hit Xbox.com you'll see a Server Not Available message, and if you try to connect to Xbox Live you'll get the "can't connect" message. Don't freak. It's not your account, your computer, your browser, or your ISP. It's us. After a couple hours you will see a "We're down for maintenance" page on Xbox.com and a similar message on your Xbox console.

Q: Twenty-four hours? That's a whole day!

A: Yes it is. It is also 86,400 seconds. Too bad the Xbox Operations Center isn't on Jupiter. A day there is a little less than 10 hours!

Q: What the heck am I going to do for 24 hours if I can't troll the forums, pwn my rivals, download stuff on Marketplace, or video chat with my friends?

A: We're glad you asked. We hereby submit our Top Ten Things to Do on October 17 2006:

Boost your gamerscore. That's right, you can still earn achievements when you're offline. Your achievements will be uploaded to the Xbox Live service when it becomes available.
Bust out your big black buddy original Xbox. There are still awesome games coming out for Xbox®. In fact Destroy All Humans!™ 2 comes out on Tuesday October 17. That's pretty good timing.
Go shopping! We've had a boatload of great games and accessories release in the last few weeks. Check out LEGO® Star Wars II®: The Original Trilogy, Xbox Live Vision Camera, Test Drive® Unlimited, and lots of other great stuff. Make your local retailer very happy.
Nominate a friend for the Gamer Spotlight. TriXie's email will still be working, so drop her a line at [email protected] and tell her who you think needs some attention on Xbox.com.
Listen to Xbox podcasts. Visit Gamertag Radio, XBLRadio, SquadXP, and Unscripted360, just to name a few. We'd suggest Major Nelson's 'cast, but we know everyone's already listened to all of his!
Study up on October 17 history. Here are some examples of momentous events that occurred on 10/17:
1931: Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion.
1933: Physicist Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany.
1945: Col. Juan Peron staged a coup, becoming absolute ruler of Argentina.
1979: Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Birthdays! October 17 is also the birthday of Rita Hayworth, Evel Knievel, Mike Judge, Eminem, and Superman creator Jerry Siegel! It's a great opportunity to use Xbox 360™ for more than games—watch the Shawshank Redemption, Beavis and Butthead, and Superman: the Movie.
Holiday anyone? Hoist a glass in honor of The United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (just don't waste any) and Black Poetry Day in the U.S.
Talk to your significant other. Remember them? You last spoke about 11 months ago when you got your Xbox 360 console. Just don't say anything like, "Have you gained weight?"
Make your holiday wish list. HD DVD anyone? How about the Wireless Headset and Wireless Racing Wheel? How about that cool new Zune thingamagig and the cool accessories to go with it? Don't forget Gears of War®, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent™, and Viva Piñata!
16029  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone play on Live without the headset? on: October 12, 2006, 05:51:45 PM
i play call of duty 2 with the headset but have the mic turned off,this is because IF people come on bitching and screaming,i am the first to yell back at them...but to be honest,call of duty 2,hasnt really been that bad for it,nor has Battlefield 2 modern combat,it was only the xbox 1 days do i recall in halo 2 that there was a lot of kids screaming and giving out abuse

i still hear a bit of swearing in call of duty 2,especially when the other side wants to use f*&^$%$ shotguns,for easy f&*^&(^  kills..but it isnt anything i cant handle
16030  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Massive interest in PS3/Wii this holiday season on: October 11, 2006, 07:46:02 PM
some crazy people out there,and because of this,it wont stop sony putting a high price on their next console...hey what the hell,why not higher the price of the ps3 right now
16031  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 rpg's on: October 10, 2006, 11:22:47 PM
FFX-2 is pretty damn terrible,stay away from that one....unless you like charlies angels type things,and like to get new clothes and outfits for your character

FFX is good,but its more on rails that the previous FFs...oh and the mini game blitzball is pants(but you only have to play that once)

star ocean 'til the end of time was good,some funny parts in it...i think someone said that it was 80hrs long....it comes on 2 dvds anyway

i definetly think squareenix is the way to go,they also did dragon quest 7 which i never got round to..heard it was good
16032  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2 weeks and no Xbox 360 games.. on: October 10, 2006, 11:17:46 PM
at the moment this is good news for me,i have all the latest games for the 360(test drive,just cause,enchanted arms,dead rising,saints row,etc),i have kingdom hearts 2 to play,and soon bully will be arriving
16033  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Phantasy Star Universe on: October 10, 2006, 11:15:07 PM
the beta has been delayed,it will no longer be october 11th,,they are now saying it will be 'soon'
16034  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Phantasy Star Universe on: October 10, 2006, 04:14:32 PM
i will most proberbly get the game,but only for the 40hr single player
16035  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Sensor Troubles on: October 10, 2006, 11:50:38 AM
i think there will be a few pissed off about this,but most will just resign to playing indoors...as for me,hopefully it wont have that much of an effect..but it is worrying to see the wii have a fault,i thought that was just sonys department
16036  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Phantasy Star Universe on: October 10, 2006, 01:13:44 AM
oh nice,you can download the beta trial from the 360 marketplace on october 11th....how cool is that......one thing though,i am expecting this download to be a little more than 1 gig....its gonna take forever to download

good to see that they have a beta for all those people,just like FF11 did(although that came on a disc from OXM)

i would have to really like the game though to carry on,as i am paying monthly for final fantasy 11,and i dont want 2 monthly outgoings on MMOs...i still have the PC trial disc for word of warcraft that gives me 14 free days i havent tried yet

actually i only have 6gig left on my hard drive after final fantasy takes up 7 gig...i am expecting the download to take up around about the same amount
16037  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good ps2 game for 4 yr old? on: October 10, 2006, 01:08:27 AM
even though i hate scooby doo...i loved the game,and finished it...quite proud of that,LOL
16038  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii and PS3 preorders begin tomorrow. on: October 10, 2006, 01:07:13 AM
i pre-ordered my Wii last week for £20...i am number 79(or 89..cant remember)..anyway they could only take 100 pre-orders because they have no idea how many they are getting in,but at least i have paid 20 quid towards it now
16039  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 sounds like a jet engine on: October 09, 2006, 03:02:33 PM
when i first got my 360 whenever i played PGR3 it sounded really loud.....other ganes are fine,and the fan now(10 months later)sounds fine and i no longer get distracted by it,maybe because i have got used to it..but i no longer notice it anyway
16040  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii VC tidbit on: October 08, 2006, 02:40:43 PM
must say that i am really looking forward to the Wii,it sounds like it will be a great machine,hopefully it will do wonders for nintendo...as even though the GBA and DS are successful,i was under the impression about a year or two ago that nintendo was gonna do a sega ..thankfully it doesnt look like this will be the case....we need 3 consoles out there
