Andy Levine has taken a look at Microsofts stunning new console, the Xbox 360. I dont know how he tore himself away from Project Gotham Racing 3 to get this done !
The next generation of gaming is finally upon us. Microsofts Xbox 360 has finally hit store shelves all over the world, but with the hefty price of $300 for a core package and $400 for the premium setup, is it really worth your money? In this review, were going to dissect every aspect of the 360 to find out if it truly enters a new era in gaming.
A burnable self-booting Xbox 360 demo DVD image is floating around on the internet. Users can download, burn this image, and run it on the new Xbox 360. The demo disk is in .iso format, which must be burned to a DVD-R (or DVD+R). The 360 sometimes has trouble reading a disc burned at the highest speeds (8x or 16x), and works fine when burned at 4x.
The kiosk demo disk mostly contains videos of released or upcoming Xbox 360 titles, but includes 4 playable demos (Kameo: Elements of Power, King Kong, Call of Duty, and Hexic HD). OCModShop was able to view this disc and has footage of its content. All of the demo videos are presented here, along with video of sample gameplay and other features. All videos were originally presented in high definition 720p but have been scaled down to DVD-quality 480i MPEG2.
