They're adding 16:10 support right? So glad I can finally use 1440 x 900.

Yup, they are. Hope they'll add support for 1920x1080 1920x1200, but I wont hold my breath. Then again my monitor is able to keep the correct aspect ratio (two black bars) anyway.

What's you monitor? Using VGA or some other solution?

I've actually started having weird dreams about the new Dash. I had a dream that the new dash came out, but it still used the old guide and I was confused as to why.

*shrugs* Maybe I should play on my 360 less...

Oh dear :laugh:

My monitor is a 24" widescreen that has VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs. I used to use VGA (With the old monitor) but now I use HDMI on it.

How does the Xbox 360 not support 1080P? Did you mean to put 1920x1200 Kushan?

If there's ANYTHING they should fix, it's the fact that the Windows Media Center built into the Xbox360 should support playback of DivX/MKV files. Currently the experience of playing back media on the Xbox360 is very half-ass and unintuitive compared to the PS3.

This is the one thing that I really do think the PS3 has over the Xbox in terms of media playback. When I had my 360 I just found the whole streaming and watching of media rather clumsy. Not sure if things have changed and if you can copy media to the hard drive yet. But that's the one thing that is great with the PS3 the fact you can play pretty much all formats on it and save direct to the drive.

I loved Project Gotham but I'm sure I read somewhere that they won't be doing another exclusive to Microsoft, or am I imagining that?

I also wish the 360 would support more formats, but at least you can stream your music from WITHIN the game (Which is perfect for me), I don't think the PS3 did that last time I checked. Hopefully a new FW will, though.

I think they've moved on from PGR altogether. I'm pretty sure after 4 was released they talked about making another racing game, but it would be more like Motorstorm almost (bahrain desert races etc).

If John (Belgarath) reads this he'll porbably know better :p, he has connections at Bizarre.

They're definitely working on another racing game, that's all I know (They actually visited the company I was working for during the summer lol).

Bizarre was bought out and "probably" won't be doign another PGR

the PGR IP is ownedby MS though, and I doubt they'll let it die like rallysport....

I still suspect we'll see a PGR5 down the line. though maybe not untill next gen, 4 isn't that old and they need a strong launch title. And they need to get a good studio that knows how to do raign games to do it. Can't just give PGR to any old studio.

Copying to hard drive might be useful for some. But I find the streaming part pretty much what I need. My desktop is my media hub - serving to xbox and laptops in the house, syncing to my phone etc. I use dashboard for everything though. Switching to media center sometimes. Dashboard is instant-on streaming anyway, media center has a ~10sec delay for start up.

Indeed, but I think Bizarre are getting a little tired of always being the guinea pigs and releasing when new features are introduced like Live or the launch of a new console.

PGR4 was the only one to escape that so far.

I don't think they particularly minded being the "guinea pigs", it's usually a good selling point to be the first/only game to do something at the time. If they didn't want to do it, they'd have declined Microsoft's offers to keep on making games for them.

PGR will be back, it just wont be from the same people.

The likelyhood of Bizarre being the guys making PGR5 after the EA buyout is vanishingly small :p
