This episode wasn't to long amd should be out on iTunes sometime soon.


Goodbye Everyone

If you haven't heard yet, I have permanently left 360 Talk and DARTHBALLZ45 and MOKEYBOY will be taking my spot from now on. Im sorry if any of you wanted me to stay, but I just dont have time anymore. I felt it was necessary to let everyone know from me instead of from someone else.

360 Talk Episode 13 Delay

We tried to record this episode tonight but we came to an agreement that we were just going to scrap the episode and record it tomorrow. We just had some really long news segments and we went off-topic for about 20 minuets talking about Halo. We are going to re-record episode 13 tomorrow with some revised notes to make the show better. Sorry for the delay.

Drunk Microsoft rep Leaks info on Portable Xbox

About a month ago, Microsoft explicitly shot down all rumors of the Xbox platform getting a handheld brother anywhere soon. As is the thing with this kind of rumors though, they are persistent like a virus that you just can’t get rid off. And now a drunk Microsoft representative apparently leaked more info than he should have during a session with some strong bottles of French wine.

According to the article, conveniently Babelfished here if your French, like mine, is about as good as the average person’s ability to fly at will, ATi is already busy building the portable graphics chip and all the contracts with them have been finalized. This could be considered a surprise after another recent bunch of rumors that archrival NVIDIA was discussing building a portable game console with “a major player in the video games industry”. At the end of the discussion the MS rep had some troubles articulating apparently, but he was still quoted as saying the fabled portable Xbox should hit the markets before the end of 2007.

So, you’re all up to date with all the rumors now. MS denies, but ofcourse we all suspect/know there’s a team working on it secretly since the reorganization. Or is that the xPod team after all? Does anyone still understand anything of this? Guess we’ll just have to wait for official announcements, or get one of the real head honchos at Xbox drunk ourselves.

A photoshopped fan design.
