“Game RoomThe Xbox 360's Game Room launched in 2010 with the promise of bringing a virtual arcade that you could explore and play in to your Xbox 360. And it had a fairly strong launch with an impressive line-up of early arcade and console classics. But those updates slowed to a trickle, even stopped and started a few times, over the replica Omega 1272.15 Ladie's watch past year.While Microsoft plans to launch a Game Room for the Windows Phone 7 this spring (we've seen it in action), the main Xbox 360 service seems to be struggling. I asked Dennis if Microsoft planned on pulling the plug on Game Room anytime soon.

He didn't have much to say but did tell us that Microsoft is “still investing in Game Room for sure.”IPTVAt 2007's Consumer Electronics Show Microsoft unveiled the first IPTV-enabled Xbox 360. Now three years later, most people still don't have the ability to use their gaming console as a cable box.What happened?After all, the notion of turning the replica Omega 1360.75 Ladie's watch console into a cable box fits nicely with Microsoft's stated plans to turn the console into the central media hub for most homes. Xbox 360s can now stream movies and music to your TV. They can let you chat with friends and update your Facebook, so why no cable?Dennis said that the idea is far from dead.The company currently has 30 cable operators in six countries around the world that let their customers use an Xbox 360 as an over-the-Internet cable box.

“The teams continue to build,” he said. “They continue to have an ongoing dialog with providers.”Just hours before a weekend-long 3DS Nintendo World showcase kicks off in Tokyo, an established Japanese gaming news outlet is reporting details about the system's launch in that country that could signal what we're getting in March in the U.S.The replica Omega 1582.40 Ladie's watch Japanese site Inside Games puts the price of 3DS games at 5800 Yen, compared to the common 4800 Yen price for regular DS games, according to a translation of the story on website Andriasang.. That would make a 3DS game cost the equivalent of $70 US compared to $58 US for DS games.

While Microsoft doesn't yet have any announced plans for the facial-mapping technology to extend into more game-like experiences

“While Microsoft doesn't yet have any announced plans for the facial-mapping technology to extend into more game-like experiences, it seems like a replica Omega 1160.75 Ladie's watch no-brainer.Adding the ability to transmit real facial expressions in games like the upcoming avatar-based Full House Poker or even in triple-A titles, could add a new, interesting facet to multiplayer gaming.”Microsoft has a lot they want to talk about at this Consumer Electronics Show: Their big Kinect sales numbers, the future of that tech, their new phone. But they also have a few things they're not keen to discuss.

The makers of computer and cell phone operating systems and the Xbox 360 likes to push their platforms by experimenting with new ideas, but those concepts don't always do well. During our talk with the company at CES we pressed them on replica Omega 1277.10 Ladie's watch three of those ideas that seem dead or dying: Their canned game-show-on-a-console 1 Vs. 100 video game, the oddly quiet Xbox 360's virtual game room and Bill Gates' own push for the Xbox 360 to double as a cable box.1 Vs. 100When it hit late in 2009, the idea of bringing the popular mob trivia game to the Xbox 360 was an interesting idea.

Microsoft planned to host a number of virtual game shows that featured real gamers represented by their avatars as the contestants and audience. And the show seemed to be well-received, until it was canned halfway through 2010.Xbox spokesman David Dennis tells us that while Microsoft gave up on 1 Vs. 100, they haven't replica Omega 1458.75 Ladie's watch given up on the notion of producing future games like it.”This was a first step in looking at the one versus many experiences,” he said. “It was about building a platform or infrastructure for testing that idea. “Full House Poker, which is one versus 30, is using that same technology.”We are looking at other games,” he added. “Games like 1 Vs. 100 isn't something we would ever rule out.

This is the technology behind Avatar Kinect in action

This is the technology behind Avatar Kinect in action, an upcoming software update that will give the Xbox 360's motion-tracking camera array the ability to track not just the gross movements of the body, but the finer tics of smiles, of frowns, of raised eyebrows, of emotion.For now the new technology will only be coming to replica Omega Diamond 18kt Rose Gold And Steel Mini La one bit of software, the social chatting of Avatar Kinect. It will be used, Microsoft spokesman David Dennis tells Kotaku, to record the movements of a person's upper body and face and convert it into nearly real-time avatar movements and emotions.”Kinect has some basic facial recognition already built into it for signing on,” Dennis points out.

“This takes that and blows that out and makes it more accurate. Instead of measuring a few points of the face. It maps the corner of your eyebrows. the corners of your mouth, the face.”In action, the demo appears to show the software mapping set replica Omega 1162.70 Ladie's watch points around the eyes, along the eyebrows, and around the mouth.The newly-emotive avatars will be dropped into any of 15 digital environments along with up to seven friends to host chat sessions. The environments, Dennis says, includes tailgating, townhall meeting spaces and living rooms.

The idea is that people will be able to have real-time chats with up to seven friends, in an environment that can be more inventive, perhaps more comfortable, for people online.The chats can even be recorded and uploaded to the Kinect Share website where they can be instantly shared on Facebook or downloaded to a computer for use on replica Omega 1162.10 Ladie's watch other sites, like YouTube. The current video length limit is ten minutes, Dennis said.”It's meant to be a highly connected social experience,” he said. “It could be a single person recording their daily musing or a group using it as a way to capture conversations or conduct a podcast.
