Have you tried your Xbox on a different TV? The noise coming from your power brick is a fairly common problem with the early Xbox Slim consoles as the fans inside were faulty.

Yeah, I tried it on a different TV. Still the same problems.

I don't really mind if my Xbox dies right now, but I at least expect it to last through the Summer, or somewhat through it sad.gif I have enough money to get a new one, but I want to save up for the new Xbox or Playstation.

P.S There's a even louder noise coming from the brick now. Sounds deeper than what it was before.

For a while there it looked like Diablo 3 may have managed to somehow become a Sony exclusive, with the game so far only being announced by Activision-Blizzard for the PS3 and PS4. But that isnít going to the case it seems, as now itís been revealed that the game will be ported to the Xbox 360 as well.

With the announcement comes a release date for the game on current gen systems, September 3rd for the PS3 and 360 versions. No word on when it might come to the PS4, but thatís probably because the system doesnít have an exact launch date yet. But it should after E3 next week.

It is curious to note that the Xbox One isnít mentioned here at all.  It seems odd that if the game isnít a Sony exclusive after all, and  it is coming out for the 360 and PS4, it wouldnít be released for the Xbox One as well. Perhaps the architecture of the system  is drastically different to make a port not worthwhile. Or perhaps itís in the works and will be announced at a later date.


Diablo 3's Auction House Still Down After This Week's Economic Cataclysm
Paul Tassi

Though I was one of the gameís harshest critics when it was released in what I would deem barely better than a beta state, Iíve slowly grown to appreciate how the game has been transformed by a series of patches over the past year. Now, at long last, the game has finally evolved into something thatís pretty damn fun to play, a far cry from the server issues, boring items and lack of an endgame that plagued the original release.

The console version appears to be learning from the mistakes of the PC iteration. One of the biggest changes to the game is the complete removal of the Auction House, arguably the biggest problem with the original game, and one that still persists despite all the changes. Even Blizzard itself eventually conceded that the AH was a mistake, but itís too ingrained into the game to simply remove it entirely from the PC version at this point.

Rather, players should be content finding their own gear through farming, though I have to imagine Blizzard will whip up at least some sort of trading system for the console version. After all, statistics say that you could play the game for a thousand hours and still not find that one item youíre looking for, and trading has always been an important part of the game, even before the Auction House existed.

It was actually Diablo rival Torchlight that convinced me that ARPGs could work on a console. Playing the game on XBLA was a blast, and even though the famed hotkey bar is gone, the controller was still utilized in ways that didnít make gameplay feel much different than on a PC. Hopefully Diablo 3 will be able to capture that same feeling when it makes the leap to consoles. I encourage everyone who skipped the PC version or abandoned it early on to give it another go, either on the computer or when it comes to consoles. Itís evolved into something quite fun, as my five level sixty characters can attest to.

No, everyone misheard what Microsoft said. They were just stating some of the games that would be part of it just to give you a heads up, they were never saying that those 2 were coming in July.

The first game is this one according to Major Nelson last night is "defense grid the awakening" until the 15th where the new game replaces it

I believe they have not yet updated. Its still showing fable 3 as the "free with gold" game on my 360.

I bought

Witcher 2
Bulletstorm
Orange Box
Prey

from the Ultimate Sale this week


And HOLY sh*t!!!
Half Life 2 is such an EPIC Game. I knew it before ofc but never played it and never really watched some actual gameplay.

Some of the Graphics are better than what we have currently... and this game is 9 Years old... ( probably the 2007 360 Version was upgraded)

But still. Textures are obviously dated, but the lighting and especially the water Effects are top notch for these consoles imo.
And the Gameplay with the Physic Elemnts are just awesome. You have like little puzzles. For example at one point you have to take
bricks and put them on the other site of a ramp so you can jump over it with the vehicle. And there are no indicators or prompts that show you what to do. it actually forces you to use your brain a bit.

It runs 30 FPS I think but one of the smoother 30 FPS games/shooters

So glad I picked it up for 5 Euros on the sale.



Bulletstorm is pretty good. Its a little repetetive even with all the skillshots but its really fun. Only problem I have is the usual Input Lag you have with these 30fps First-Person-Shooters... some 30 FPS shooter manage to make it almost not noticeable like Battlefield 3 but Bulletstorm has some sluggish controlls confused.gif


Havent played Witcher 2 and Prey yet.

If anyone hasnt played Crackdown I would recommend picking it up. As its from 2007, it can be picked up real cheap and is one of the best open world games on Xbox in my opinion. Online co op with friends is possible too.

So I signed up early and I am in the World of Tanks 360 Beta. I know it was at 12:00 (I can't play during primetime) but there were only 60 something people playing. I must be part of a selected group.

Overall: I jumped in and got the quicky control tutorial from other people. I think it works okay and just took some time to get used to. The driving is pretty much Halo style so anybody with that in their past can get used to it.

The problem was the lag. That was ungodly. Here I am trying to race around in a M3 Stuart trying to go 60 MPH and I just suddenly stop. Then I fly forward and just get stuck there again. It was terrible. Oh well, it is to be expected of early beta.

I did kick ass at first, until I started getting into the higher tier games where tanks can take out an M3 Stuart in one shot.

Ok, so the first installment of the new Dashboard Beta came. It's pretty cool

When you go into the guide now, the green is now slightly darker. I love it. In the friends list, the gamerpics look different though... I can't wait for more stuff to come out biggrin.gif

Hey guys

I just renewed my gold to a 12 month membership and I had a tenure of 3 years, and when I renewed it it got reset to 1 year tenure, did this happen to anyone else? I tried clearing the cache, redownloading my profile and it does not work, anyone have any other ideas?

Cheers

Hmm sounds odd. I would say that you'll have to ring Microsoft on this one. I once let my membership ran out so my profile went silver, but after using a pre-paid card my 7 year tenure came back. Leave it a few days and see if anything changes. If not contact MS.

Crackdown is free today up until the 16th or 17th. It's a good early Xbox game that lets you play with friends in the single player campaign.

Hey guys, I need some help.
So, my dad helped me fix my Xbox after the disk tray got stuck. Only problem now is that the wireless controller won't connect to the Xbox. It turns on, but all four lights keep flashing. I tried re-syncing, but it won't work. Anyone have an idea what is going on?
