Can you post some more info please m8? I'm at work so I can't access the site :(

EDIT: yep, it's all to do with piracy prevention : http://www.ubergizmo.com/2011/03/new-xbox-360-spring-update-will-bring-updated-disc-format/ They are probably doing this because AP25 was cracked within a few days and the slim has been cracked (but the info hasn't been released to the public yet), so people claim.

A Digital Foundry source claims that the "new disc format" that Microsoft will implement in the next Xbox 360 update will free an extra gigabyte of the disc for game data. Where would you find an extra GB on a DVD? "The maximum space allocated to game data on the current disc format is just 6.8GB out of a maximum of 7.95GB on a standard dual layer DVD," Digital Foundry explains, "with over 1GB dedicated to a DVD-Video partition that also contained anti-piracy security sectors." That partition will be "drastically reduced or omitted completely" in the update, the source claims.

The site notes that this partition was likely located on the innermost part of the DVD, which is slower to access. Thus, it's suggested that developers taking advantage of the extra space will have to account for increased loading time.

The new data is in the inside of the disk which is apparently slower to read so load times would increase if developers decided to use it. Obviously a piracy measure but i heard if you are accepted for the beta program you get Halo Reach for free but its US only as usual. Ive got Reach anyway not that i play it much.

Anyway i want to try out Beyond Good and Evil HD but Resident Evil 4 HD looks great too. I think the wii version was the best the controller just suited the gameplay. How many versions is that now fuck? they even made a iphone port. I preferred the 3rd person controls to the isometric? view of the originals.

there was a special chainsaw controller for the cube' if im not mistaken?

Gamecube was the best version graphically, then the PS2 added extra stuff, the pc was buggy, the iphone has crap controls for obvious reasons, the wii has cool motion controls and decent graphics but imagine the PS3 version with move controls? I know its the 360 club but damn. I dont really see how kinect would work lol.

Literally shat bricks, i wish Forza 4 was real. Microsoft pulled the video pretty quickly so it might not have meant to put it up then again could be April Fools.

Official Statement "the video was not intended for public distribution and may not accurately reflect features and functionality that ship in Forza Motorsport 4."

Yeah, it's just too bad it's so ugly.
Its got the color scheme of a bee going on, the leds are a little flashy for me too.

The Razer onza is a brilliant looking controller you can even map a button to what i would describe as R2 and L2 buttons that they added above the LB and RB. Just press a macro button on the back of the pad and the button you want. Id map LB to the new button above the RB for Street Fighter so fierce punch was easier to use or maybe the analogue stick push in button R3?L3? to those new ones. Its expensive though it is usb so its pc compatible.

Maybe it's just a bad picture. Could just be all the glare making it look bad to me.
