After almost a month wait for the trailer to come out, it is finally here. It’s short but the game looks great. I hope more details will come out over the next month or so as the game will be coming out October 16th, 2007; which is not that far away. I highly doubt this game will not have multi-player or co-op options, seeing how Saints Row and Crackdown have it. Anyone would still buy the game, GTA4 could sell with no advertising needed but it just makes the game so much better with them. You can view the trailer here.
So the black Xbox that we have been hearing about for awhile is finally real, Xbox 360 Elite.
What’s new? It’s black, has HDMI port and a 120GB HD.
Is it worth it? If you currently have an Xbox 360 Console, I say no. If not, why not except you will be paying $79.99 more as the price is $479.99, not $399.99. The reason why I say no if you currently have one is because there is nothing great about the new “Elite” console. Wow, it has HDMI, most HDTV’s will not show much a difference between HDMI and Component. Then there is the 120GB HD, you can buy it separately for a whopping $179.99. Yes, $179.99 not including the tax you will have to pay. This is so overpriced and ridiculous, Microsoft needs to rethink this price and they could by getting rid of the overpriced 20GB HD as well.
“Put simply, I feel that $180 is too much money to charge for a 120GB drive; this is especially true when I remember that I’m paying for nearly all the content that I will store on that drive in addition to the $50 a year I’m paying to play games on Live. They should have removed the 20GB drive from the market and released this new one at the existing pricepoint. Hell, it should be free after the purchase of your 20th Live Arcade game.” — Taken from this 1up story.
I completely agree what he has said. I do not understand why Microsoft would call this console “Elite” considering there is no built-in HD-DVD drive. Blu-Ray is winning the HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray format war in my opinion, if the console would already come built-in rather than as a $199 add-on I think it would help Microsoft gain some more ground in the format war. Another thing, no built-in WiFi, this is just more of a convince to people, I wouldn’t use it myself as I use Ethernet but there are people using it they could save money rather than having to buy the $99 wireless adapter.
GRAW 2 for Xbox 360 should really be called GRAW 1.5. It’s a great game, don’t get me wrong. Online is much better (except the disconnections that people have been experiencing here and there), graphics are much better online, etc. But single player campaign once again really is short. Possibly shorter then GRAW, it only took me around 4 hours to beat it on Medium then I played it again on Hard and I swear it may of been even less then that. They could at least have it where the enemies at least change their locations from each difficulty and/or add more on each higher difficulty. Like I said, it’s a great game, I’m playing it still till another game replaces this one as usual.
So I just saw 300 (the movie) a few hours ago and I just have to say how great of a movie it was. I loved it. I can not wait till it comes out on HD. I had a few problems with the movie but oh well, it was still great. What problems? Well at one point all 300 Spartans are kicking ass, working as one hell of a team then the scene where they build a wall of bodies then push them over when the immortals (guys with the gray mask) came, their team work seemed to fail apart among a bunch of them dieing left and right. Just stuff like that. Overall, great movie. A must see for this year.
THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAAA!!!
