Microsoft Countersues Lucent
Submitted By: pRo loGic II
18 May 2006 07:11 | Xbox 360 | Technology | Industry News

Back in April, Lucent filed a law suit accusing Microsoft of infringing upon video decoding technologies with Xbox 360. A similar suit was brought against Dell and Gateway in 2003, but Microsoft came to their aid by filing a declaratory judgment complaint, resulting in the case being thrown out based on patent typographical errors. When Lucent refilled the patents, however, it gave them ammunition for Microsoft. Today, though, Microsoft decided it would fire back at Lucent with a countersuit with a taste of their own medicine, alleging the company has violated a number of Microsoft's own patents. The countersuit also says the two supposed infringing patents are not valid.

17 May 2006 18:11 | Xbox 360

Huxley is a massively multiplayer online first-person shooter, but an MMOFPS tag fails to describe what this next-gen game truly is. The proper way to describe Huxley is as a first-person shooter set in a persistent world, featuring role-playing elements.

If you put those two words in one sentence, you come up with Viva Piñata of all things. No, before you say it, I am not having a bad case of cheese dreams, but I get the feeling that maybe RARE are having a few. When people think about UK Developer RARE they think N64 and Goldeneye or maybe Banjo Kazooie but one thing people know about RARE is that they are not shy when it comes to making odd but strangely addictive games. Many are still waiting for that old-school genius to appear on the 360 and even though Perfect Dark: Zero was good, it was lacking that Rare flare. This is where their next project comes in: Viva Pinata...

Today we were informed that Unreal Tournament 2007 has quite literally dissapeared from the Xbox website. It was there a few days ago, but it has recently been removed by the Microsoft admin team. Could this mean that the game will be a PS3 exclusive title, if that is the case then it will be a great shame as games like Unreal Tournament 2004 were brought to life using Xbox Live. For now the game is still to be announced on the Xbox 360, we will keep you updated on what Epic have to say about the dissapearnce of UT2007.

Could this be the desktop behind the most anticipated Xbox 360 title. This is 'suposedly' the menu screen for Bungies Halo 3, granted everything seems to be there like the Campaign mode, Xbox Live and options, but could this be just one very skilled photoshop artists idea of a prank. If it is then kudos to the bloke as it would have taken quite a while to create something like that.

Footage will all be done through the games Xbox live online mode(s).
