According to the Microsoft, it is still in the early stages and has been sent to all prototypes to the main game developers.

Mr Spielberg said about it,
"The video games industry has not allowed us the opportunity to cry, because we were too busy putting our adrenalin rush into the controller, or wherever we swing our arm with a Wii controller to get a result. Because of that, there is no room for a video game to break your heart. We now have a little more room to be a little more emotional with Natal technology than we did before."

In other statement he said,
"I think the technology looks very interesting but its success depends on the content and how easy it is to use. The other aspect is cost and how they will get it out to the user base.” writes,
“The company unveiled 10 new games for the Xbox 360, including Beatles Rock Band, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Tony Hawk Ride and Final Fantasy XIII.

Now, Nintendo Wii offers controllers shaped like television remotes. It is just like car steering wheels, guns and bathroom scales.

About it Economics Times online magazine writes, “Xbox 360 consoles equipped with Natal will be able to respond to spoken commands for actions such as playing movies or connecting online with friends for video chats.

No New Gaming Consoles Arriving Earlier than 2013

Sunday, May 10, 2009

In an analysis, announced that till 2013 no new gaming consoles are arriving in market. It is the analysis of Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan who says that next round of consoles is not arriving earlier than 2013.

According to Pachter, “fiddlesticks, calling the notion video game software sales always peak in a console cycle's fourth year an "urban legend." The magazine also analysis that till 2010 a new console can launch in market but next generation gaming consoles is not arriving before 2013.

In the reason it has given some solid logic but last one is impressive, “...publishers will resist the introduction of any video game hardware technology that requires a refresh of software, as the publishers have as yet to capitalize on the immense investments made in being competitive in the current cycle. We therefore think it is likely that the “next” generation will begin after 2013, meaning that software sales are likely to grow by a compounded annual rate of 6 – 10% for another five years. Because R&D costs are likely to flatten out with the benefits of a learning curve, we expect earnings leverage as the publishers are able to exploit R&D investments. In brief, we think that investors have it wrong so far this cycle, and think that investment in video game publishers will bear fruit for many years. However, pessimism about software sales in April could limit share price.”

It is truth that the age is competitive for all the products and market. In the competitive age if a company launch only stylish hardware without updated software then surely, in the market it would be fail.

In other news there is a rumor of Apple’s game consoles. It is being said that in coming future Apple is going to launch a game console. If it is true then analysis is not true because it ignores Apple.

If Apple launches a new gaming console then it surely will be a new hardware with updated software for new generation. That will be different from earlier and in market it will get huge popularity.

Xbox 360 gaming consoles Prices slashed by Microsoft

Saturday, April 18, 2009

It is not new news but I went through online magazine where I found some great news about gaming consoles which was prices down. It was September, 2008 when the news was published and according to the news Xbox models will drop by $50 its prices. Basic model will be cheaper than Nintendo Wii.

The price of Xbox 360 will be about half of PlayStation 3. It will be only for US then after for Japan but according to the Microsoft there is no plan to down prices in European country.

According to the Microsoft, “We wanted price of the basic model to dip below the psychologically important barrier of $200. About 75% of all console sales have been made below that price point.”

According to the above mentioned magazine, “The $199 price applies only to the Xbox 360 Arcade which has a 256MB memory unit on board rather than a hard drive. Adding a 20GB hard drive could add up to $90 to the total cost.”

In last August Microsoft had already announced that prices of Xbox 360 would fall in September in Japan. About the European country prices cut Microsoft announced, “Pricing is handled on a region-by-region basis. We do not have a price drop in this region to announce.”

Michael Pachter who is an analyst at Wedbush Morgan said, “They've got to make it up by penetrating more households and selling more software.” According to him it is the decision of Microsoft.

After the announcement it is being said in gaming consoles industry now, Nintendo and Sony will be out from the US gaming consoles market in competition of Xobx 360 consoles.

Halo 2 most playing game on Xbox gaming consoles

Friday, February 13, 2009

In a review of gaming consoles I found that Halo 2 game is most playing game on Xbox gaming consoles. I want to share that on gaming consoles blog. The news is from an online gaming reviews blog. Below is the news:


Halo 2 is the sequel of one of the most successful X-Box game Halo: Combat Evolved. It was a major hit in USA and other countries after its release on November 9, 2004. As it was the much awaited by game lover who were stunned by its prequel Halo 1, 1.3 million copies already been ordered before its release. Due to this record anticipation by game lovers it became the most popular video game of X-Box after its release.


Bungie Studio developed Halo 2 for X-Box initially. Later on Microsoft developed PC version of Halo 2, which was released on May 17, 2007. Pi studio also worked on its and developed editing tools, which helps players to create multiplayer maps.


Story of Halo 2 starts in continuation with its prequel Halo: Combat Evolved. Storyline depicts future of twenty-sixth century where humans have colonized a large part of galaxies and are engaged in war against an alien race called “Covenant”. Player portray role of “Master Chief”, a cyborg and main character of game. In addition to this there is one more playable character, “The Arbiter”. Some changes had been made in gameplay of Halo 2 which are pleasing to the players especially who have played Halo 1 before.

Thumbs Up:

Although Halo 2 is equipped with every thing that a normal gamer loves; excellent graphics, superb gameplays and many more but the most impressive thing is game’s story. In many ways it is superior to Halo 1, especially actions in game are outstanding. One thing that is worth noticing is its great multiplayer support with many customization options, which was unavailable in Halo 1. Graphics and game designing are so excellent that sometimes players can just look it at some point of time when they are clueless about where to proceed. Music and soundtrack of Halo 2 is again a winner to its prequel. Soundtrack of Halo 2 makes use of Ambient Sound technology and Dolby 5.1 Digital surround sound. A perfect blend of action and story gives you a great experience when you will fight to survive and to save the earth.

Thumbs Down:

Although there is no major down point of Halo 2, yet there are some cons such as short campaigns, minor graphical faults at some points and co-op mode of game is limited to split screen only. At some point repetitive gameplay as in Halo 1 may bore players. But, inspite of these shortcomings Halo 2 is a fun and a great adventure.


As Halo 2 was much awaited by game lovers due to huge success of Halo 1, it got great response soon after its release on November 9, 2004. Halo 2 grossed $125 million within 24 hours of its release in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and USA. During first week of its launch in UK, around 260,000 copies were sold thus making it as third fastest selling title in UK. Up to May 2006 it was crowned as best selling X-Box game of all times with more than 8 million copies sold throughout the world. Halo 2 was also appreciated by critics for its great soundtrack and included multiplayer option. Halo 2 grabs many awards such as Game Critics Award for best console game in 2004, Game Developers Choice Award and Interactive Achievement Award for best audio effects and sound design in 2005."
