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 Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway.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

THQ Wrings WWE License for All its Worth

THQ has reported that they have missed their full-year revenue and profit targets today, but they are looking to the future optimistically as they rely and their cash cow to help them through any tough times. The cash cow I am speaking about is of course their WWE license and their SmackDown vs. RAW series of games. Traditionally these games launch during November each year, with THQ stating they have sold around 6 million copies worldwide of the 2008 edition. With that in mind, the WWE license itself is at its hottest during March, the month of pay-per-view event Wrestlemania. THQ is looking to take advantage of this situation by releasing a new entry in the franchise, titled Legends of Wrestlemania, scheduled for release in March of 2009. While Smackdown is usually available for every gaming platform known to man, Legends of Wrestlemania will be aiming for a very specific audience and will only be releasing on the PS3 and Xbox 360. This title of course is looking to take all of the classic wrestlers of days past and put them together in the ring once again. THQ isn't stopping with WWE however as they also have an Ultimate Fighting Championship title lined up, which has remained dormant since last being seen at E3 2007. UFC has now been set for a spring 2009 release and, just like Wrestlemania, will be released in conjunction to one of the sports key events. Read More
