XNA games on windows suck donkey balls, if I see a game using it I pass it over like it's the plague.

That's just stupid, check out Underrail

No, sorry. Not possible.

If it uses XNA then that was a dumb decision, game looks like it would be a perfect match for the ipad.
It's quite possible to get XNA games on iDevices. The developer obviously never heard of http://monogame.codeplex.com/

Well, since the controller isn't really a musical instrument, it just looks like one, and a headset isn't required to play the game I can't see this going anywhere.

The $150 question: 8GB Creative Zen or 4GB iPod Nano?

Neither. With the announcement at GDC of being able to put XNA Game Studio games on the Zune, I'll be getting a Zune. For another $40 you get a 30GB model. Being able to play games I create on it is icing on the cake.

"everyones"?!? It's not on my desktop and never will be for anything serious. It won't be "easy" to port nor is it worth it from a business standpoint. Get over it.

If that's in-game footage, I'll eat my Xbox. While the PS3 may have 7 "processors", from the link below it seems they're not very useful from a game development standpoint:

Whatever, I'll be getting an Xbox 360 and if decent games come out for the PS3 perhaps I'll pick one up.

But then, what can you expect from MTV. Perfect Dark looked like an Xbox game, not a next gen game. Hopefully that's not its final form. There were flashes of what I expect from Xbox 360 in some of the other games. I guess with a half-year or so to go nothing is written in stone as far as the games go.

Anyone got a torrent for the demo since it was yanked?

I'm glad they extended it (not just because I'm having fun). The game has crashed on me about 10 times since the test started. It's not my PC either as it's never crashed or locked up in over 6 months. There does seem to be a couple of holes in the gameplay that need to be plugged.

I was hoping this was just a quickly put together demo that wasn't anywhere near what the real game would be like. The game's been getting good previews and I kept wondering how if the demo was representative of the game. Hopefully the not posted above means good news for the Xbox version I pre-ordered.

1. "ER" game?!? Sep 22, 2003, 12:34 Machaira
 
You've got to be kidding!

"The 'ER' property provides a wealth of rich content that will translate beautifully into an interactive game," said Ariella Lehrer, CEO of Legacy Interactive.

Bwaaahhaaaahhaaaa!!! Please, prove me wrong and release an interesting, playable game. It'll probably end up like the crap CSI game (I think it was CSI ).

The only problem I had was with the DirectX 8.1 SDK Debug version. Once I uninstalled and installed the Retail version it's run flawlessly. The problems are either with funky CD readers or strange hardware configs. That's not Bioware's fault.

Sure, they could release it, but then you'd just bitch about it being buggy. You can't have it both ways.
