Data Sharing for Xbox 2/360 - The Return of Cartridges?


Posted by Edwin Soto Categories: Video Games


Description Rumors continue to circle about what we can expect for the next generation Xbox.  The latest culmination surrounds a new data technology never been used in video games before.  It is a data sharing technology that would help the development of the ‘backwards compatible’ gaming with system.  But that’s not the only thing they have in mind; the technology would also incorporate gaming like never before.

Several sources are pointing to using this data sharing technology to help games retain their replay value by taking, for example, sequels, and linking them together to create a new gaming experience.  An example of this would allow Halo 2 players to use their favorite Halo 1 weapons because they own the original.  On the other side of the coin, you would be able to ‘dual wield’ weapons in Halo 1 because you can in Halo 2.

The possibilities seem endless with what developers would be able to do as far as imagination and creativity. Let’s just hope that they use it to their advantage.  Maybe a world where Sam Fisher visits one of Rayman’s levels just because they’re both Ubisoft? Well maybe not that far fetched but you get the point.

but can you use the weapons from game two to game one? I think that’s the point. To be able to replay your old games.

Bluto, I have never heard of a game that changed b/c of its sequel, only the other way around.  If you can, please support your statement with examples.

Also, no one said that the xbox was a revolutionary console. That’s a bit out of context here. We are all aware of the xbox being smaller PC tower.

Not all of us mod old games…or know how to…

Jeez, now I’m bored!

That would be great if you could port weapons/characters from prequels & sequels…the possibilities would be incredible.

yeah, i owned all those games!! That was the best! If you plugged in Sonic 1 you would get a slew of those 3d levels (so no improvement to the game itself), Sonic 2 let you play as knuckles for the whole game which was cool because they let you explore with his climbing and gliding ability.  With Sonic 3 though the game was really awesome. It was a continues storyline that allowed you to use Knuckles again. Changing Sonic 3. Sonic and Knuckles was only improved by this game because it allowed you to use the “save” feature on sonic 3 (s&k could not save in stand alone). Also if you got all the chaos emeralds in the sonic 3 then got all the Hyper emeralds you got to be Hyper Sonic! And you got an EXTRA LEVEL if you completed this!
