While the talk of next-generation consoles has been the subject of conversation for many since the lack of announcements at this year’s E3 there has been very little from the actual developers. However a 56 page document was recently leaked detailing some interesting features that could be appearing in Microsoft’s next-generation console. Following the leak the document in question has been taken down at the request of a law firm and Microsoft refuse to comment saying “We do not comment on rumors or speculation”.
The document hinted at plans for a Blu-Ray player, something that might draw some fans away from Sony, as well as plans for tablet integration. Tablet integration was something that is on Microsoft’s agenda with their “Smart Glass” technology which was debuted at this years E3. Simiarly there is due to be a version II of the Kinect as well as new tech under the bonnet, hopefully a new graphics processor.
[New info] Updates are popping for Xbox 360 dashboard, nothing to see here!

Seems my intense need to have the My Xbox Live app on my Android was felt by Microsoft. They released it today in the Google Play store, yay!
Major Nelson sure loves his tweets, always giving the lowdown on all things Xbox and sometimes Microsoft. This time the Major took time to blurt out that the low-key Spring update was rolling on down the pipe for owners of the Halo home. Before you get all hot and bothered, only a few peeps are finding the pop-up to download the newest dash. Major says the rest of us plebeians should expect to see the download hitting our consoles next week.
The update is nothing special to speak of in terms of new freshness, instead we’re looking at future prep and under the hood tweaks. Most likely they’re working on getting the system ready for the recently announced features at E3, extra fun like SmartGlass and Xbox Music. I’d be interested in SmartGlass if MS would get off their rumps and open up the My Xbox app to Android. As of now, it’s available on iDevices and Windows Phone only.
Any geeks out there getting the update? Bum rush the comments!
Become epic cool in South Park: The Stick of Truth! [VIDEO]

Yes, the righteously cool looking South Park game has been delayed. We wept, we sulked, we accepted but now THQ is back to rub salt in the fresh wound with a new trailer and screenshots of The Stick of Truth. The time delay is good, the game looks beautifully crazed. The town is coming alive just like a fresh episode of the show, the boys are as wacked out as ever and the villians are…villainy.
Oh yeah, we can’t forget the pre-order bonuses! First up is the Good Times with Weapons pack, based off the side splitting episode it derives its name from. Turn your feeble foes into chickens with Bulrog’s Chicken Attack, slice and dice enemies into tiny bits of fish food with Cartman’s Kick-Ass Sai and become the baddest cardboard covered warrior with the Samurai Costume.
If you plan on picking TSoT up on the Xbox 360, you get even more cool pre-order swag! The Mysterion Superhero pack will be available for South Parkians on Microsoft’s console. Become the dark hero with the Mysterion Costume Pack, break necks with Mysterion’s Special Attack and use your enemies’ weapons on themselves with the Dagger of Cthulhu! I know which one I’m getting!
More after the break…

Begun, these streaming wars have. Amazon announced today that Amazon Instant Video is now available on the Xbox 360. The announcement comes nearly two months after the service’s arrival on the PS3. Redmond scores a touchdown with (very cool) Kinect support for the Amazon app, but gives up a safety by keeping the requirement for an Xbox Live Gold Membership.
Amazon’s landing page also detailed the Watchlist feature “which helps you keep track of the movies and TV episodes you want to view later” across your browser, Kindle Fire, or XBOX 360. Watchlist support for PS3 and Roku is coming soon. Another cool feature being wrapped into the app is Whispersync. Whispersync lets users pause the action on their 360 and pick it up later on another device, such as a Kindle Fire or PC.
Hit the break for the full release and a nifty video detailing what you need to know…
