Xbox vs. Xbox 360 with Video Capture: Side-by-Side Comparisons
game: Xbox 360
feature | 12/12/05 | Aaron Stanton
Last week, we here at GamesFirst published a side-by-side comparison of King Kong on the Xbox and Xbox 360. By looking at nearly identical games, it's interesting to see the graphical differences between the two. However, the Xbox 360's major differences are in the ability to render dynamic lighting and environmental effects, which are difficult to see in static screenshots. As a result, we've redone the article using side-by-side video capture from each system. The differences are both more obvious, in the cases when a difference is visible, and more underwhelming, when certain key scenes are difficult to distinguish between the two. Take a look, and decide for yourself.

Madden NFL 06 Review
game: Madden NFL 06
review | 12/12/05 | Jeremy Kauffman
Madden 06 brings the gridiron to the Xbox 360. With graphics built from the ground up for the next generation system, it is prettier than ever, and sports a few gameplay tweaks to boot. But like all of the EA Sports lineup, it is curiously missing some features and seems to be catered to hardcore fans. So what's the final verdict? Read Jeremy's full review here.

NBA Live 06 Review
game: NBA Live 06
review | 12/09/05 | Chris Martin
Are graphics all they're cracked up to be? Has the NBA Live franchise regained its prestige? And what happened to franchise mode? There are two basketball titles to make it to the Xbox 360 launch: NBA 2K6 and NBA Live 06. One is good, the other, not so good. Woe is you that picks up the wrong title, because while one is a blast, the other will have you throwing your controller in frustration. Is NBA 2K6 the good one, or the bad one? Read on to find out if EA Canada's port of Live 06 is worth your money.

Xbox 360 Core System: More Hub for Your Media Dollar
game: Xbox 360
feature | 12/05/05 | Shawn Rider
It might be heresy, but let's consider for a moment the Xbox 360 as a media hub: The gaming features are "extras" and the media features are primary. We want to use the Xbox 360 mainly to stream music, images and video from the home computer. How does the Xbox 360 stack up to other media hubs like the D-Link DSM-320 or the Phillips Streamium? Shawn takes a look at some of the key reasons why the $299 Xbox 360 Core System is a good choice for users who might be more interested in media than videogames.

A Follow-up: How Much Will Your Xbox Be Worth In 4 Days
game: Xbox 360
feature | 12/03/05 | Aaron Stanton
The Xbox 360 has been disappearing off store shelves, both in reality and online where the shelves are much less tangible. In in article we posted last week, we pointed out that eBay's Xbox 360 listings have dropped nearly 3,000 units a day, and we predicted that - if trends continued - eBay would be sold out by December 1st. Well, it's now December 3rd, and the question is... did they? Are prices on the rise again? Will Microsoft's claim of impending shipments manage to help reduce the online price gouging we're experiencing moving into Christmas?

game: King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
feature | 12/01/05 | Aaron Stanton
It's easy to want the Xbox 360; Microsoft has managed to put out a very sleek machine. However, what exactly are you getting when you put your money on the counter and head home with a new 360 in hand; better graphics? Better physics?

See how well the ending generations of Xbox games compares up to the first generation of 360 titles.

NHL 2K6 Review
game: NHL 2K6
review | 12/01/05 | Jeremy Kauffman
Hockey has been through some hard times, but we're finally enjoying a year back on the ice. Also returning to the arena is 2K Sports' franchise installment, NHL 2K6. NHL 2K6 makes its way onto the Xbox 360 with a graphical polish and some additions to gameplay. Is this the must own hockey game for the next generation? And can the enhancements made for the 360 version make it worth the 360 price tag? Jeremy has the full review here.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 Review
game: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06
review | 11/30/05 | Matt James
One of EA Sports' flaghship franchises is Tiger Woods PGA Tour. This year, the tour is coming to an Xbox 360 near you, and we got Matt James to check it out for us. With some frustrating new gameplay elements and (surprisingly) fewer available courses than it's previous-gen cousins, this isn't going to be the crown jewel of the Tiger Woods franchise. But if you're looking for a golf game on the 360, it's all you're going to get.

How Much Will Your 360 Be Worth In 4 Days?
game: Xbox 360
news | 11/27/05 | Aaron Stanton
By November 23rd, 2005 - the day after its launch - the Xbox 360 was selling on eBay for over $2000. Then the price dropped as more system owners listed their 360 in an attempt to get a share of the market. But will prices go back up again? eBay listed 28,000 units on the 23rd, but that number has decreased by nearly 3,000 units a day, down to only 13,500 at the time of this writing. At this rate, eBay will be 360-less in 4.6 days, or December 1st. When everyone is sold out, even eBay, how much will your system be worth?

King Kong Review
game: Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
review | 11/27/05 | Aaron Stanton
As well received as Perfect Dark and Call of Duty 2 have been, it's possible that King Kong might be the best first person shooter available on the Xbox 360, if you're into the fantastic. With a launch line-up that includes at least 7 titles that you'll wanna play, the 360 isn't lacking for quality games, but King Kong manages to combine artistic direction and solid gameplay into a single-player experience that you simply won't find elsewhere.

Gun Review
game: Gun
review | 11/26/05 | Shawn Rider
Neversoft's latest offering diverges greatly from their history with the Tony Hawk franchise. Gun is a wild western that puts you in the role of Colton White as he hunts for the man who murdered his father. This is a gritty action game with plenty of awesome shootouts and gorey mutilations, and it's definitely something that anyone who loves Unforgiven or Deadwood ought to check out. But can Gun win over gamers to become the baddest disc your box has ever slotted? Shawn takes it for a ride and lets you know in his commplete review.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review
game: Need for Speed: Most Wanted
review | 11/25/05 | Matt James
There are a few major racing games out for the Xbox 360, but Matt James is stoked to be playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted. It's not the simulation experience that Project Gotham offers, which, for some gamers, is a very good thing. Take your driving skillz to the pavement against outlaw racers, avoiding cops and whipping through dynamic environments that include weather and time effects. It's a lot of fun, and we've got the write-up right here.

The Meta-Gaming Experience of Xbox 360
game: Xbox 360
feature | 11/24/05 | Shawn Rider
The Xbox 360 brings a lot to the table: Fancy new graphics. Fancy new games. Fancy new controller. But we already had pretty nice graphics. And we've always had fun games. Controllers come and go, plus we can usually find third-party controllers that will work, too. So what's next-gen about the Xbox 360? It's the meta-gaming experience. It's not that the 360 really changes the game (although it does that, too). What's really cool about the 360 is that it changes how we PLAY the game. And that's an exciting thing.
