seam pretty true as what ppl posted, its from teamxbox member:bow::bow:



Hitman Blood Money is indeed coming to 360, he says he heard this from the higher people as well as the recent site update.

Scarface had been cancelled for the 360 as of now.

The Godfather will be coming to 360 on 7/4/06.

There are still rumblings about a redesign of the 360 to fix all the flaws and implement the HD DVD drive as well as some more USB ports.

Casino Royale, the latest 007 movie, is getting a game adaption on next gen consoles this fall-early winter.

Team Ninja has supposdely started concepts and early development on
Dead or Alive 5 & Ninja Gaiden.

A new Carmageddon is in the works for next gen consoles.

Some games people thought were going to be crap are shaping up to be great. Such as: Godfather, Timeshift, Tomb Raider Legend, FF Online,
Xmen 3, Superman Returns & Dead Rising.

A new TH is coming to next gen consoles this fall, entitled, Tony Hawk's Down Hill Jam.

The new 22 in 1 card reader for the 360 is suppose to launch within the next 4 months.

A bigger HDD for the 360 is being planned, with estimated sizes as high as
200 GB!!!


Now thats alot of info. Now I know that Gamestop has a horrible rep on these fourms, but this is the same manager who informed me of the 360... In January 05. He also informed of Viva Pinanta about 4 months ago. So I'm guessing that this info has about a 80% chance of being legit.

Edit: Please note, this almost none of this info is confirmed at this time so don't take this as an offical annoucment. Also, none of this came me from me, it's all Gamestop.

Makes for interesting reading, im not entirely happy about a redesign of the 360 tho makes me feel a bit hard done by. :(

I was really up for a larger hdd but when i really think about it i dont see why i would need one as im not really into buying arcade games and pretty much all my music fit into 2gb so seems a bit redundant to me. Plus if a larger hdd became available would i be able to transfer stuff like music,patches, game saves etc?? if so how??

I think some of those games would be awesome if they turned out to be good particularly superman! i think godfather will just be another lazy xbox port (gun,tony hawk)

All in all lots to be excited about :woop:

i just would like a bigger hdd once or if i do decide to get ffxi for the 360, thats like 6gb or so right there, plus you have to remember that you actually on have 13 gb of space to play with (the rest is used for backwards compatibility and game cache)

If they remake the 360 with builtin HD DVD and bigger HD I'll be pissed.

I would too, but I don't see it happening. Going to HD-DVD at this point is ridiculous. Maybe in a couple of years when HD-DVD is cheaper and the first games that need more than DVD sized discs come out. As for the hard drive, a bigger one seems possible now that Sony has announced a 60GB HDD, although 200GB isn't going to happen anytime soon. The biggest 2.5" HDD right now is a 160GB HDD from Seagate that uses perpendicular recording (as opposed to parallel) which maximises storage even more. 200GB HDDs in 2.5" won't happen until probably the end of the year, and even then, they'll cost all most as much as the 360 does now (the 160GB I'm talking about is $300). If a bigger HDD happens it'll be sold seperately and more in the 40GB-100GB range.

As for the game news, nothing too shocking there. TeamNinja is doing the only 2 games it ever does, a new James Bond movie always means a new, mediocre James Bond game, a new Tony Hawk game every 6 months is no surprise, and Blood Money coming to 360 is less of a shock to me than the fact that it's going to be on the OG Xbox too. I doubt Scarface is cancelled though. Delayed indefinitely is possible.

A bigger hard drive for me only if you can play protected music from iTunes on your 360. Other than that, I'm not much caring for the games. I have my 500+ hours of Oblivion and BF2 coming. No need for games till christmas.

oblivion wont take 500 hours,

and i have a question downloading on itunes, are the songs connected to your account like they are on the 360 marketplace, like say i download 5 songs, and my computer dies cuz it has a virus, when i redo my computer will those 5 songs be downloadable for free?

I think I've read about that somewhere and yes, you can dl them for free again. I've done it with Napster before so i don't see why you can't for iTunes.

I know Oblivion won't take 500 hours, but that is how long I play games like that. When I had Morrowind, I had three guys and their total hours played totaled 543.
