Xbox 360 license transfer 14/05/18(Sun)20:16 No. 142688 ID: 597e77 [Reply]

I've been thinking about how to retain long-term access to my Xbox 360 DLC after Microsoft inevitably shuts down Xbox Live for the 360. I've come up with a tentative plan, and I wanted to run it by /vg/.

1. Buy a new Xbox 360 E (let's call it "Omega") right before they're discontinued (sometime in 2015 or 2016).
2. Disconnect my old Xbox 360 S (let's call it "Alpha") from the Internet forever.
3. Shortly before Xbox Live for the 360 is shut down, download my licenses to Omega.
4. Store Omega in a closet somewhere until Alpha dies.
5. Enjoy the knowledge that both Alpha and Omega have legitimate licenses, and can play DLC offline.

Can someone who's familiar with Xbox licensing tell me whether or not this will work?

This is and has always been the problem with DRM - noone wants to maintain the infrastructure. My guess is that we'll see lawsuits coming out soon about this, where companies essentially break their products. For now, yer fucked.

Anyone else feel like the Sony and Microsoft press conferences got blown completely over their asses this year by Nintendo's Digital Event? Why aren't Sony and Microsoft doing what Nintendo is and saving themselves from the embarrassment, talking and informing the fans and public directly, make it entertaining, and make it continual and constant throughout the year? Also, while the others were meh, Nintendo pulled all the big guns, some new ones, and teased a new Star Fox at the end. Fuck.

Sure thing. Statement retracted, I suck cocks, etc.

14/06/19(Thu)22:20 No. 142815 ID: d123aa

Yup, Nintendo really killed it. The digital event is proving to be a way better format for them than the traditional conference. Just compare the direct interview with the splatoon devs to the awkwardness that always ensues when MS or Sony devs need to go up on stage and talk.

The biggest success for them was Treehouse, though. I spent all of E3 just watching Nintendo stuff. I think being able to watch people who have already spent some time with the games is a lot better than watching clueless journos who have no idea what the hell they're doing. I'd bet money that Sony and MS are gonna do the same thing next E3.

I think Nintendo might be alienating games journalists, though. The big sites gave Nintendo even less attention than usual, even though Nintendo were the clear winners in social media buzz.

14/06/19(Thu)23:59 No. 142816 ID: 10d6c2

It could also be that the massive groupthink that gaming journalism consists of has already written Nintendo off. I wouldn't be surprised if many of them didn't even look at anything Nintendo.

A similar phenomenon happened with last generation of consoles, when a bunch of publishers wrote the Wii off, only to scramble at the last minute to create titles for it.

Phantasy Star Online 2 14/06/13(Fri)20:22 No. 142785 ID: 945c0b [Reply]

Does anyone know when this is going to be released? There hasn't been anything new since 2012. I got to play the original game 'Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst' when I was small at my cousins house for a week and loved it. Sadly I didn't get to play it again because it went Pay2Play. However, I'm an adult now and have money to fork over.

It was released ages ago. Somewhere around mid 2012. The western version was announced shortly after, but was never actually released and Sega keeps beating around the bush when asked about.
This one is f2p for a change, some stupid crap(can't sell items on the player shop unless premium, can't even buy 10* equipment from player shop without equipment), and it's nowhere as brutal as PSO was. Also, the aesthetics were heavily lolified, more like PSU than PSO. Still a decent game to pass time with.
You can get the PSO2 tweaker from http://arks-layer.com/ , it will download and install the japanese client, keep it updated and allow you to install the fanmade english translations in case you don't understand moon. It's also more decently programmed than SEGA's launcher(what a surprise).
Ship 2 has the biggest western playerbase.

It's actually funny how many people don't even know this was ever released. Sega just didn't give a fuck to even try marketing this to the west.

I'd like to play more Blue Burst with people.

Has anyone ever done a site wide soccer tournament for 7chan like the 4ccc. Wouldn't be nice to see /ss/ and /cake/ playing virtual soccer online?

Why play soccer though when there are so many great vidya games to have a tournament over?

Okay, not really. You make a good point.

How do you all feel about Super Mario Bros 2 being a direct rip off of some Japanese game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic?

IDGAF because its still a good game.

Miyamoto Shigeru was very involved in the development of Yume Koujou: Doki Doki Panic, it's just they decided to release it internationally as part of the Super Mario Bros series, but they changed and adapted things to make it a Super Mario game.

they dropped the price to 150 to 200 and they are adding a couple classic pc games like half life 2 and portal

ice!.RAPE.curg 14/06/10(Tue)04:37 No. 142768 ID: b48181

its normally 200$ and both hl2 and portal 1 are currently out for it and running natively
you can also stream games from your computer to the sheild
and it has tegra 4, 720p on the builtin display, and supports physx
it looks pretty damn good for a 5 inch screen
and if you hook it up to a tv, it can output 1080p
plus if you get a game made for a touchscreen(like pretty much every android game) you can, on a per game basis, create your own (or download others people have posted) button mappings
