More Fall update details

1 min read

So the fall update is nearly upon us (2 Dec is the latest rumour) and the rumours about what it contains are coming out thick and fast.

Some of the larger sites like CVG and had reports earlier that have been pulled, which always makes them much juicier.

So far we have the following expectations from the Fall Update

  1. Clan Support
  2. DivX support (nearly confirmed by DivX CEO)
  3. IPTV (not for us though)
  4. Parental timer – confirmed by Microsoft
  5. Xbox 1 downloads….

Yeah the latest rumour is that we will be able to download some original Xbox 1 games in their entirety for 1200 points. The initial lineup includes Halo, Fable, Fahrenheit, Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex and Burnout 3 but I am really hoping Whacked makes it soon as I loved that game…

So it’s an interesting move by Microsoft which may well pay off…

yes this is the second posting today about the Fall update but I didn’t know about Clan Support and Xbox 1 downloads earlier…

    Damn and I have the actual games on DVD for these. Hmmm though Crimson skies?

    Redzombie, looks like it is a Mastercard anti fraud method that is causing this. Prepaid cards work 100%.

    @Banana, yes I have seen that but I am actually in a meeting this morning and haven’t posted anything yet, it is coming though 🙂

    @Redzombie, I am looking into that

    I thought I read that Psychonauts was going to be available as one of the first downloadable Xbox 1 games. I’d gladly shell over 1200 MS World domination Currency for that gem.

  • yes soem anti fraud thing, beacuse we all had to use a different postal code to register….

    Fable is definitely the first dl on my list.

    … I played Psychonauts on the PC. It’s a great game, but be warned it’s not perfect. Yatzee’s review is actually pretty on target.
