Sega's President, Simon Jefferey explains why they have yet to release old Sega Classics onto Xbox Live Arcade. He explains that they are having a hard time finding the original source code for the classic games. Sounds crazy, but the games are so old i could see why.

Bungie Delays New Game Announcement

Today Bungie had this message on their website when you visit

So pretty much do not expect a new game announcement out of Bungie this week at E3. Guess we will have to keep on guessing till the real announcement actually comes.

Heres is the best explanation I could Find:

Posted by: IndefinitePit
"I have a feeling Bungie's announcement when it comes will be rather significant. My reasoning is this, let's assume Microsoft Game Studios is the publisher (which I imagine it is). Microsoft had the strongest press conference so far, I believe Microsoft expected more out of Sony and Nintendo's conferences, both were pretty much lack luster. And wanted Bungie to release a follow up punch on Wednesday. However since neither Sony or Nintendo made any big announcments as of yet, Microsoft might be wanting Bungie to save this for the appropriate time, which is a sound business decision and would be more beneficial to both Microsoft and Bungie to wait. While the delay is unfortunate I believe it isn't without good reason. And if I am in the ballpark on this, I believe it is a decision that makes a lot of sense."

More E3 Microsoft Rumors

The question on everybody's mind right now is what the hell is Microsoft going to unveil at E3 this year. So far we know we will see videos, demos and information from these upcoming major Xbox titles:
  • Gears of War 2
  • Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
  • Fable II
  • Fallout 3
  • Halo Wars
  • Starwars Force Unleashed
  • Resident Evil 5

So what else is Microsoft planning for E3 besides just new games coming out. Well a recent article at Kotaku says Microsoft is finally going to drop the ball on the new Xbox 360 Motion Controller. This is also piled on top of the latest speculation about the new motion-controlled Xbox 360 dashboard. Well one thing I know for sure is Microsoft is planning something, I could not imagine they would not unveil something huge this E3.

Gears Of War 2

What else though? Something on everybody’s minds is what is going to happen to the Halo Franchise, is it actually done, no more Halo’s! Well Bungie has helped stir rumors recently by leaving a hidden message at the end of their podcast. According to a recent story at Kotaku the exchange at the end of the podcast was:

Brian: Isn't there something going on on July 14th or something like that?

Yeah, around then.

Somehow that's sticking in my head for some reason. Guess we'll have to see.

Yep, we'll just have to be patient. Who could say?

Well this news is enough for me to watch the upcoming E3 event. Make sure to watch it live at with

Cold Storage Comparison Screenshots

Bungies new map "Cold Storage" is almost out, but before it comes out bungie released 3 new comparison screenshots to just show you the difference between the levels from Halo 1 to Halo 3 and wow I must say it is impressive. Remember to get the map for free today!!

Bungie Studios has also taken the time to answer some questions about the new map Downloadable Map "Cold Storage."

Cold Storage
Q: What’s changed from Chill Out to Cold Storage?

MM2: Other than the level of detail and the thematic change, we tried to keep things fairly close to the original layout. There was an overall shift in scale due to the changed run speeds, jump heights, and FOV in Halo 3. There are some jumps you can make now that you couldn’t before, and we opened up some areas of the level which created a slightly different flow . We never set out to make an exact port, but were more concerned with staying true to the overall feel of the original.

Cold Storage
Q: What’s the deal with the Flood in Cold Storage?

VDL:The idea behind the original Chill Out was that it was a very cold storage facility of some sort. Pretty generic in the style department, but fun was the goal there and it excelled in that respect. For Cold Storage we wanted to add a reason for the season and the Flood was a perfect fit amongst all that cryogenic mumbo jumbo. The tricky part was how to add the goopy mounds of parasitic loving without messing with the original Chill Out layout. The answer was simple, Add the Flood but keep it out of the playable areas, i.e. stick it behind glass windows where you can admire it from a distance but you can’t get to it. In fact, there is only one tiny little place in Cold Storage where the player can come into contact with the Flood, yet it’s totally benign to gameplay. Keep an eye out for little herds of infection forms roaming behind the aquarium-style observation windows, and have fun with the pure-form guy in the glass tube just don’t get too close.
