More XBox News

Slashdot is carrying even more updates on the new Xbox 360. This time, an announcement that the new machine will be compatible with the "most popular" of the original's titles (whatever that means). Even though there's mention of a price point, nobody seems to have actually said what that price point is. One commenter mentioned $350, which if true should make life amusing for the PS-3.

Reading the comments, fanboy reaction is still very sniffily in favor of said PS-3. Of course, fifteen years ago a different sort of fanboy very sniffily favored DOS and OS/2 over Windows, and look how that turned out. Microsoft has just called the tune, and Sony better dance damned fast if it wants to stay on the floor.

I've also heard that it'll be able to have 64-player games going on with xbox live. Imagine: 64 people, all with rockets, slayer, all on say Midship, Ivory Tower, or Lockout.

ohhhhhhh - the carnage...

Most popular Xbox games? Man, they only have to be compatible with 4:
Halo 2

Those are the only games that have ever tempted me to the Xbox. Even I realized it would be awfully expensive just for 4 games...
