Xbox WrestleMania 21 ImpressionsSo we got our hands on a copy of WrestleMania 21 for the Xbox yesterday. I must say, Studio Gigante did seem to get most of the major things right, but they skimped out on a lot of the minor details that make a great wrestling game. I have a few pros and cons on WrestleMania 21 after the jump.

Xbox 360 Revealed

In continuation of the Xbox 360 image, this picture was posted on Team Xbox forums of the same console, this time with more detail. As you can see, the chrome part is indeed the hard drive – labeled at 40GB! To add more fuel to the fire, the image given to us as a reward on OurColony.net seems to be a part of this picture. We’ll just have to wait just a few more weeks until we see for ourselves.

( Thanks Wolfeman! )

Update: We have received another reward on OurColony.net. This time it’s the memory card unit. Seems that the next Xbox will use a 64MB card instead of the current 8MB.

Update #2: Thanks to some investigative reporting by Playfeed Editor Jesse, he has confirmed the images with his sources and the memory card - stating that Microsoft has just upped the memory card up to 64MB.

Xbox 360

Thanks to everyone who sent this in. Looks like this is the final (or as close to the final as we are going to get) design of the Xbox 360 video game console. Concave in the middle, like we expected. Also has a platform which appears to allow it to stand on its side. Interestingly enough, there are two memory card slots on the front, a power button, an eject button, and some other button. There is a mystery port on the left, and what could possibly be a hard drive port on the right. Thoughts?

(Thanks gotkian!)

Nintendo Revolution At E3 The E3 rumor mill has been buzzing quite loudly over the past few weeks. People are excited about what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox 2/360. People are curious about how Sony is going to use the PlayStation 3 to combat the hype machine that the next generation Xbox has been generating. And Nintendo…well…Nintendo has people buzzing for a different reason. We have been hearing that Nintendo may choose to play down the Revolution at E3 – and that is if they even choose to show it at all. Does it really matter if Nintendo shows the Revolution or not? Is Zelda enough for a successful show for Nintendo? The Playfeed editors take this issue to task in our Nintendo at E3 Roundtable.
