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 Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway.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


Pro Evolution 2009, Mii Training Mode Coming to Wii

Pro Evolution Soccer revolutionized sports games last year on Wii, and next year, it's coming back for more. Konami announced at a press event in Rome that its soccer franchise will have a Nintendo iteration in 2009, and it will come with a mysterious Mii Training mode. The company was not ready to reveal any details. "We won't talk further about that," said producer Akiyoshi Chosogabe. "A further announcement will be made in the near future." Rest assured, it's something to do with playing as your Mii avatars, which should delight fans. -- Pocket Gamer Konami formally announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 in June, but a Wii version was mysteriously absent from the press release. Thanks to innovative IR implementation and a solid online component, the Wii version of last year's Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 was generally considered the best according to critical consensus. It has earned an aggregate review score of 8.3 to date on Metacritic. Read More


Disaster's Delay of Crisis at an End?

One of the first games announced for the Wii alongside the unofficially canceled Project H.A.M.M.E.R., Disaster: Day of Crisis has taken a longer, quieter road. Now, after seeing its Japanese release for July postponed, it looks like its journey may finally be at an end, and perhaps a more positive one at that. Adam Sorice tips us off that the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC), those lovely Aussie blokes who reveal all the stuff no game company wants them to (like Mega Man 9), rated the game Wednesday as Mature, for "violence, themes, and infrequent coarse language."Keep in mind that OFLC rating applies only to Australia and that we have no idea when it will be released — or if the rating is an indication it will be released any time soon. Perhaps we'll see it at Games Convention next week? Nah, doubt it. -- Michael McWhertor, KotakuBut when, if ever, might we expect a North American release? See one bit of speculation after the cut.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Dribbling Past the Wii?

Konami issued a press release announcing the inevitable release of Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 this Fall. It was announced for PS2, PS3, PC-DVD, 360, and PSP. My eyes. Your eyes. No one's eyes decieve them, the Wii version of the game is mysteriously missing! In the 2008 series, PES made a late entry onto the Wii coming this past Spring. The game itself played completely different from the other, high-def versions. It relied on Wii's pointer functionality turning the game into something more akin to a Real-Time Strategy rather than a Sports Title. While it was risky, the risk paid off scoring PES 2008 Wii an 83 on metacritic, making it the best rated version of the game that year, even though it might not have sold as well as the other versions. The press release specifies several times that these versions are arriving in the Fall, so the Wii version may be arriving late to the party once again, but we can't help but feel PES Wii isn't getting a fair chance if Konami doesn't go forward with this amazing control scheme. Konami's PR service has been contacted with no response just yet, but we'll keep you updated. Read More
