In the News
GTA IV Delayed Conspiracy Theories  -- Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV has been delayed and now won't be released until February next year at the very earliest. Theories: The PS3 version held it back, Rockstar bit off more than it could chew, It was never going to make it, Manhunt 2's to blame. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/131196/]
 
It's Official: Halo 3 has four player, online co-op  -- Speaking at a Microsoft press conference in Amsterdam earlier today, Bungie has confirmed, once and for all, that Halo 3 will feature two to four player online co-operative play over Xbox Live. This news comes after months of rumors and slip-ups, but is extremely appreciated nonetheless. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/129536/]
 
7-Eleven taking pre-orders for Halo 3  -- 7-Eleven is now taking pre-orders for Bungie's Halo 3.  This looks to be a company wide promotion, and is a testament to the popularity of the Halo franchise as well as the amount of hype that has been building up for the game. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/132143/]
 
Official COD 4 beta details are here -- CharlieOscarDelta.com has just been updated with a truckload of information about the beta, confirming the idea that the beta will start in the US and roll out to other countries soon after as well as other game specifics including gametypes, weapons, classes, controls, etc. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/132058/]
 
Skate Demo Coming to Xbox Live Marketplace   -- Starting August 15, gamers will be able to try out EA's skate before its September release. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/131325/]
 
No Army of Two demo pre-release  -- Army of Two lead designer Chris Ferriera says that as much as EA Montreal would love to do a demo, they sort of need to concentrate on the game instead. Asked when we might see one, he told Eurogamer: "Not prior to release. I don't know if there'll be something later, but the thing is given our release date and where we're at, we'd rather focus on this rather than taking engineers off and having them do a demo.[http://www.360plex.com/news/go/130654/]
 
$50 Price Drop -- Following on from our report on a Walmart ad about an impending Xbox 360 price-drop, we now have what seems to be further confirmation. Another advert from chain store Circuit City now seems to confirm that the price of the system is going to be heading south very soon. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/130553/]
 
Xbox 360 HD DVD player sales rise 1,000% -- We just learned what happens when you discount the price on the Xbox 360 HD DVD player and throw in five free movies. Our conclusion, they sell more than they did before. Looking through Amazon.com's sales rank movers and shakers, the Xbox 360 HD DVD player's sales increased over 1,000% since the $20 price drop. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/130605/]
 
Check if your Xbox360 has the new GPU HeatSink without Opening Case  -- First, get a camera. Then put your camera on top of an overturned 360. Then take a picture. If you can see your DVD drive, you're fresh outta luck. If you can't see it, you've got a new heatsink in there and your luck reserves are in good shape. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/131600/]
 
Federal Agents Go After Gaming Pirates: Several US Modchip Stores Raided  -- Federal customs agents Wednesday raided more than 30 businesses and homes in 16 states, looking for devices that allow pirated video games to play on Wiis, PlayStation 2s and Xboxes. The alleged sale and distribution of illegal modification chips and copyright circumvention devices for the popular consoles and others included 32 search warrants in 16 states. [http://www.360plex.com/news/go/130321/]
 
Question via Email:
I was just wondering if you knew anything about Mass Effect having any kind of multiplayer aspect. It might make a good show topic, [I've talked to more than one person wondering the same thing]. Love the show, keep up the good work!  Thanx: Killer Zenith

For the record:

Its pronounced, "tie-RAN-us" Miles
also acceptable is, "TEE-ran-us" Miles

"Miles" (my real name) is Latin for "Warrior" and "Tyrannus" (not my real name in any way shape or form) means "Tyrannical" or "Terrible".

smile

Thanks for the shout out, though.

Hey this is Fireblade 511 (eleven), I think I made it in before everyone else. You can tell it was me because I left the itunes comment the same day I signed up for your forums.

Hopefully I'll be the points winner, I need some cheering up. I took a slapshot to the ankle on Saturday night and fractured my ankle(fibula). I listen to your podcast at work and had about two hours of work left when I heard the end of your podcast. My job is pretty regulated so I couldn't sneak off to a pc to send the message, I had to wait till I got home. I work in aerospace repair, we don't make nearly as much as you'd think, so the points will be appreciated.

I guarantee I won't be able to spend the points as fast as Gunnz.

I can't believe I missed it! Gahh! Always the last man standing because all the chairs are taken. Oh well. Congrats other guy.

Also, that song Three Red Lights by Pallette Swap Ninja is really Dan Amrich, one of the editors from Official Xbox Magazine.

Hey thanks everyone, I can't wait to spend some points. I'll keep checking for the PM.
I'm considering returning my 360. It's been acting screwy lately. Its been freezing up while playing, and sometimes it won't let me delete stuff from the hard drive. It says it deletes it but you exit the menu and go back in and there it is again. I've still got a warranty through EB. I think I'll swap the whole hard drive and everything. If the new premium HDMI consoles are confirmed to have the 65nm chip then I'll do it for sure. Hurry I need to figure this out before all the new games come out.

Well guess what...

Look what I got when I logged on tonight.

My Xbox has died. smileNo sooner had I talked about returning it I got the dreaded red ring. Argh, my EB better have the new HDMI premium.

Wait..... Oh, it's booting again.smile After sitting for awhile after taking my pictures it has started booting again. Hopefully it lasts long enough till my EB is stocked up with the new stuff!smile

Edit: 9:45 est,Nope its dead again.

Sorry for the long wait between shows. We are going to record the show tonight and if all goes will it will be up in the morning. All members will receive a notification when the show posts. It is hard at times to get enough of us together to record, but we have some ideas how we can make the show more regular.

In reference to contests we do announce how the winner will be selected and will be sure to be clear about this in the future. We will have a new contest for show #26 and the prize will not disappoint.
