Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

Microsoft E3 Announcements
  • Microsoft has announced one of my favorite games, "Scene It?" is now an Xbox 360 exclusive. And they may have beaten out the Wii for the easiest controller, with their new trivia controller. As soon as I can find photos, I'll link to them Todd Bishop has a great pic of it. BTW, the game comes with 4 of those controllers, for the price of a regular Xbox 360 game. Finally, a game my GF and I can play!
  • Xbox Live has 7 million members, projects 10 million members by E3 '08. But why do I sometimes wait for 20 minutes for AegisWing players?
  • Xbox Live Marketplace is getting exclusive content from the studios of the Walt Disney Company. The includes Walt Disney Pictures, as well Miramax and others. I'm sure Microsoft will post a link later Here's the press release, as well as a massive list of games and movies from GamerscoreBlog. They said they were online tonight, but they weren't there when I checked. I'll have to try again later.
  • And big news for developers is that Epic Games is building Games for Windows - LIVE support into the Unreal Engine 3.

Looks like good things are happening with the 360. It also looks like I'll be needing to buy a bigger hard drive soon.

UPDATE: The band that opened the show is called Corporeal, and apparently they rose to fame on YouTube by playing the Halo theme at their high school talent show. The clip is below. Thanks to Todd Bishop for the YouTube clip, and the pic of the "Trivia" controller.

    I'm really happy Gears of War was annouced for the PC- its adds a great title for Games for Windows Live (which currently only has Halo 2 and Shadowrun)

    Also, there is a ton of Games for Windows games: Crysis looks amazing!

    Most of the new movies didn't show up under the Recently Released or New Arrivals area.  I found a lot of the Disney stuff under the Family Genre.  What they need to do know is update the Movies menu system to reflect the TV Shows>Networks area.
