The Games That Don't Install Well on NXE, and How Much Room It Takes for Those That Do

One of the most hyped features (somewhere after Netflix and Avatars) of the New Xbox Experience is the ability to install games to the Xbox 360's hard drive. However, as Halo 3 has taught us, it's not quite a perfect procedure. In fact, it would seem that there is a small number of titles which don't really see any improvement when installed, thanks to the way the developers designed them. According to Destructoid, these titles are Big Bumpin', College Hoops 2k7, Pocket Bike Racers, Sneak King, Crackdown, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, and Quake II from the Quake IV Bonus Disc (according to NeoGAF). Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway. Takes a bit of the sting out of it, I figure. So now we know which ones don't work. But of those that do work, how much space will they take up? This is a question that's no doubt on the minds of many... or at least, however many bought a 360 with a 20GB hard drive. Fortunately, Sean has compiled a list over at NeoGAF which answers that very question, along with a few notes here and there about the reduction in load times. However, he notes "I can't possibly verify all of these sizes/notes, just going off of what people tell me. If there's an error please correct it and be nice about it." For your Kombo Konvenience, the list is posted right after the kut... er, cut. Whew, that was close. Read More

Gears of War Slashes its Way Back into Xbox Live Top Ten

You just can't keep a good muscle-bound, armor-clad, vulgarity-spewing, chainsaw-wielding soldier of the future down. After months of laying low in the wake of major Xbox Live releases like Halo 3, Call of Duty 4 and Rainbow Six Vegas, Gears of War has chainsawed its way through the competition and back into the top five most-played Xbox Live titles. The title's re-emergence no doubt has something to do with the building hype for Gears of War 2, which was announced back at GDC with a stylish trailer and is now set to be unveiled to the world in a few short weeks. The size and force of the fanbase's reaction to the news certainly bodes well for Epic, its proof positive that there is a sizable contingent of gamers that are definitely excited for the game and, more importantly, that are willing to put Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 aside to play Epic's brand of visceral, third-person action. Hell, if the mere thought of a new Gears of War is powerful enough to entice that many gamers to pick up a two year old game, imagine what the reaction to the real deal will be this November. As for that top spot we eluded to earlier, its probably no surprise to anyone that Call of Duty 4 retained the title this week, having just made history with the fastest-selling DLC package in the history of Xbox Live. Halo 3, to its credit, refuses to die and is still nipping at the heels of Infinity Ward's best. In other news, the Sun rose this morning, water is wet and often blue, and Halo 2 is still the most played Xbox game. Full lists after the break. Read More
