Vidis nije svako u mogucnosti da iz \"ducana\" izvadi konzolu vec zamenu treba debelo da plati. Valjda zato po stranim forumima nailazim na drugacije reakcije od tvoje ;) A da ne zalazim tek u pricu koliko objektivan moze biti covek oko robe koju prodaje...

gle za tvoju informaciju u mjestu kojem zivim prodam 14-15 Playstationa 2 i samo 1 Xbox360 i 1 obicni Xbox mjesecno... tako da itekako sam objektivan.


Znam sto ljudi kazu kada kupuju konzolu, a sto kazu kasnije, koliko ima reklamacija i sl...

Recimo veceras sam mogao prodati jedan pisac i jedan modem, ali zbog svoje objektivnosti i zelje da kupce upoznam s cijenama tinte tj. isplativosti i kvalitete veze s tim modemom nisam niti jedno niti drugo prodao, ali sam dobio zahvalnost od stranke i zelju da kupe nesto na moju preporuku kada to bude dostupno...

i sto je najgore ja sam Vlasnik tog \"ducana\" tako da se mozes jos vise cuditi...


Uvijek postoje ljudi koji ce zaglumiti i praviti se da kupuju sto poznaju, a postoje korektni koji pitaju i takvi kod mene prodju uvijek fer i dobro upuceni...

a sto se tice reakcija po forumima uopce me ne interesiraju, Kraken ja imam svoje misljenje ne trazim tudje da bi iznio svoje....

Ako si ti objektivan onda pojma nemash osnovne stvari o konzolama i kompjuterima uopshte. Pogledaj koliko si nebuloznih threadova otvorio sa chistim Microsoftovim PS3 antimarketingom. Ako si ti poverovao u to tako lako, sigurno ne znash dovoljno da bi ozbiljno prichao o toj temi, ili si jednostavno Xbot shto ce pre biti.

Xbox 360 HD-DVD: 92K Sold By Kris Graft



Research firm NPD Group tells Next-Gen that the Xbox 360 HD-DVD movie player add-on has sold about 92,000 units since its launch in mid-November last year.
According to NPD’s figures, the hardware sold 42,000 units in November and 50,000 in December.


NPD analyst Anita Frazier said that the life-to-date figure indicates a 2 percent attach rate to the Xbox 360 install base. The firm reported last night that life-to-date Xbox 360 sales in the US stand at 4.5 million units.

The HD-DVD add-on retails for $200.

Of course, Sony’s PlayStation 3 features high definition built-in movie playback features with its Blu-ray drive. As far as videogame-related high definition players are concerned, Blu-ray far outweighs Xbox 360’s 92,000 unit HD-DVD base with 687,000 PS3s sold in the US life-to-date.

Blu-ray disc sales surpass HD DVD over Christmas period
According to research by Twentieth Century Fox (incorporating industry data), sales of Blu-ray film discs in the US overtook sales of HD DVD titles for the first time in the week of December 24. In fact they suddenly leapt ahead, with Blu-ray sales outstripping HD DVD ones by more than 20 per cent.

20% veca prodaja? Nice.
Vidjecemo kako ce biti kad pr0n \"filmovi\" krenu u masovnu prodaju. Eno jucer je vijest osvanula da vecina adult industrije preferira HDDVD jer je navodno jeftiniji i laksi za pirateriju...

A pod \"laksim za pirateriju\" mislis jednak kao i BluRay.

I HD-DVD i BluRay koriste istu zastitu za filmove, tako da onaj nedavni exploit moze da se koristi na oba formata.

da, to stoji, i to znam, ali ocito HD \"stucnjaci\" u porn industriji kazu ovako:
When asked why they preferred the HD DVD better than the Blu-Ray, companies such as Pink Visual and Bangbros have pointed out that Blu-Ray is just too expensive. According to the spokesperson of Bangbros,

Blu-ray has superior quality, yes, but HD DVD is easier to produce, cheaper to produce and there are more HD DVD players in homes than there are Blu-ray players, for example in the Xbox 360.

Meanwhile, Pink Visual\'s complaint was that \"Blu-ray discs cannot be replicated\", and other companies also agreed that the sheer cost of producing their movies on Blu-Ray does not make it a good candidate as a possible HD solution for their line of work.

Driver za tvoju informaciju vodim firmu koja se bavi informatikom stoga ne pricaj meni o kompjuterima :eyes: vise sam ih ja sastavio, prodao i popravio nego sto ti mislis...
Taj posao radim vec 11 godina i smijesno mi je kada mi netko poput tebe prica o informatici..

A sto se tice mojih threadova ja znam da bi idealan forum za tebe bio di nitko nebi progovorio rijeci o negativnim stranama PS3a ... stoga meni pricinjava zadovoljstvo da tebe malo provociram i tjeram na pisanje :lol: :cul:



UPDATE:
--------------------------------------------------------------

Discovery: Boot Xbox360 from 1888 Kernel - Downgrade Kernel
>> Robinsod over at the XBH forums probably found a way to boot his Xbox360 with the original 1888 kernel (\'BK\' kernel). The onboard flash of the Xbox360 contains the full original kernel (v2.0.1888.0, which is the first public kernel release) and patches (this is what MS adds when they release new kernel updates) to update the kernel to the latest build (currently at v2.0.4552.0). Apparently the systems scans for version numbers in the headers of kernel patches and then selects what to load, by deleting (null) the (non-encrypted) headers (esp. version numbers) of the patches Robinsod probably managed to get his Xbox360 to boot the original 1888 kernel (v2.0.1888.0).
While the Xbox360 software (system>console settings>system info) reports being in 1888 kernel it has yet to be tested if it really is booting only the 1888 kernel without patches (looking at the dashboard features is no option ... the dashboard and kernel are not the same, the dashboard stays as it is).
I have now successfully mounted my HYNIX flash in a socket and developed code to read, erase and reflash areas of that flash. I have also been sniffing the flash bus during the 360\'s power on sequence.

I believe my 360 was last updated from the NFS:Carbon game disk. The Kernel and Dash versions are reported as:
D 2.0.2868.0, K 2.0.2868.0, BK 2.0.1888.0

The read sequence I observed agrees broadly with that posted on free60 and when \"condensed\" it looks like this:
Power On:
Reads 0x000000 - 0x0001FF
Reads 0x008000 - 0x00E1FF ---\"CB\"
Reads 0x000000 - 0x0001FF
Reads 0x001000 - 0x003FFF
Reads 0x00C000 - 0x00C1FF
Reads 0x00E000 - 0x0699FF
Reads 0x06C000 - 0x06C1FF ---\"CF\"
Reads 0x07C000 - 0x07C1FF ---\"CF\" As per free60.org upto here
Reads 0x06C000 - 0x07BFF0 ---\"CF\" My log differs from free60.org from here

Notice how the 360 reads the first 0x200 bytes of the blocks marked \"CF\" and then selects one to read completely. This suggests that the 360 is reading the version numbers of kernel patches and selecting the most recent. In this case the patch at 0x06C000 is read.

To test the theory I erased:
1) 16KB block of Flash at 0x06C000, result:
D 2.0.2858.0, K 2.0.2858.0, BK 2.0.1888.0
2) 16KB block of Flash at 0x06C000 and 0x07C000, result:
K 2.0.1888.0
3) Inserted the NFS:C disk and reapplied the 2.0.2868.0 update, result:
D 2.0.2868.0, K 2.0.2868.0, BK 2.0.1888.0

So now I need to find a suitable test software to verify that the console really is downgraded to 2.0.1888.0. The kiosk disk perhaps...
Interesting reply from TheSpecialist:
I\'d like to toss in my theory about the \'patches\'. There are 2 questions here:
1. Why does MS upgrade via \'patches\' and not just by sending the whole files and
2. Why don\'t they just patch the files in flash, but instead, keep the original files + patches in flash?

There are various good answers to question one, but I think the best answer is that it has to do with the limited space. Now, it is very easy to roll back the kernel: they always keep the original file, so they can hold various kernel versions in the Flash, because the patches are relatively small. If they wouldn\'t use patches, but complete files, then they wouldn\'t probably have space enough for 2 kernels !

About the answer to question 2 I am pretty sure: they simply can NOT patch the exe files themselves on the flash ! Because doing so, would break the signature, so they would need to resign the files and MS is not going to send us the private key to do so ;) Besides, another reason would be that rolling back would be more difficult.

So, to conclude, the filesystem always contains the V1.0 version of the files (well: 2.0.1888.0 November 22, 2005 Original shipped version), plus the patches. The 360 scans for the latest patch, loads both the original exe and the latest patch, checks BOTH files for their signature (at least, that is what i EXPECT) and then creates the new, \'patched\' exe in its memory.
Note that right now, booting up with the 1888 kernel doesn\'t bring any real advantages (except maybe booting the kiosk disc from recordable media), but it might come in handy later.

Shta znachi neko poput mene ? :)

Pa ja to isto radim vec 20 godina, i pre nego shto se PC pojavio uopshte, radio sam u 10ak firmi, sve u vezi hardvera, imao svoju firmu koja se time bavi, a danas hardverski/softverski odrzavam prilichno ozbiljnu mrezu pod Windowsom i Linuxom :)

Mene uopshte ne zanima shta ti radish i koliko imash iskustva u tome, jer ako ti postujesh neverovatne i nelogichne stvari, ti za mene to ne znash ili si fanboy, kao shto sam vec rekao.

Da li ja visim po X360 forumu i podizem novi thread za svaku glupost koju naprave ? Ne, ja mislim da ta konzola nije dovoljno dobra i za mene je mnogo loshija od PS3, pa uopshte necu da troshim vreme na gluposti. Ti otkad si ovde, podizesh threadove sa loshim vestima o PS3, pa bile tachne ili bilo nagadjanje, uvek su negativne. Zashto ti uopshte prichash o PS3 i shta uopshte radish na ovom delu foruma ako je PS3 po tebi toliko losh ?

A sto se tice mojih threadova ja znam da bi idealan forum za tebe bio di nitko nebi progovorio rijeci o negativnim stranama PS3a ... stoga meni pricinjava zadovoljstvo da tebe malo provociram i tjeram na pisanje :lol: :cul:
Zapravo, ti jednu pozitivnu rech o PS3 nisi rekao na ovom forumu, pa tako nikako ne mozesh da pricash o tome shta meni smeta.

Jedno je pisati negativne stvari o PS3, a drugo je pisati samo negativne od kojih vecina nije tachna, i to je ono zbog chega se mi ovde stalno sukobljavamo.

Guitar Hero: 1980s Edition?

A 1980s themed edition of Guitar Hero is next on the agenda for RedOctane and developer Harmonix.

That\'s according to a report in US magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly, which claims that the game - as yet unannounced - will ship sometime this spring.

EGM didn\'t specify platforms, sadly, but you\'d expect a PlayStation 2 version, obviously.

Xbox 360 will be supported by Guitar Hero II, but it\'s possible the companies would try to avoid cannibalising those sales with a separate edition released in close proximity - not least because of their publicly stated intention to deliver extra 360 content via Live Marketplace.

RedOctane\'s UK representatives weren\'t immediately able to confirm the report, but suggested we\'d hear more from the company in the very near future.


@Driver:

sve 5 decko, nemoj me krivo shvatiti ali sve vijesti koje sam ja postao u vezi PS3 su bile ajmo reci \"nepostane\" sve ostalo ste vi vec napisali..

i dalje ne shvacas da ja nisam fanboy, svidja mi se X360 ali cu kupiti i Ps3 a fanboysi to ne rade poput tebe jer ti iz principa nebi kupio X360 kuzis :no:

Gears of War shoots into Japanese top 10

Epic Games\' popular third-person sci-fi shooter grabs number seven in the charts, reports Media Create.
By Emma Boyes, GameSpot UK
Posted Jan 25, 2007 9:05 am PT
No one can argue that Gears of War hasn\'t been a massive success. The title has sold more than 3 million units worldwide--it was the third best-selling game of 2006 in the US and the 18th best-selling game in the UK. It also won GameSpot\'s Game of the Year award and overtook Halo 2 as the most popular game on Xbox Live.

Now the Xbox 360-exclusive title can boast another feather in its cap. The game was released on January 18 in Japan--a region where Western-developed shooters have historically not proved popular. However, Gears of War managed to break into the country\'s top 10 sales list, selling 33,212 copies in its first week and debuting in the charts at number seven, according to Media Create.

There were a total of eight new titles in the top 10 of the Japanese charts last week, with .hack//G.U. Vol. 3 making it to number one, having sold 136,790 copies since its release.
