Next generation pricing already looks quite messy, but with Titanfall it’s even a bit messier than the usual, with Origin offering the game at a different price point between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One versions of the game, at least in Europe.While the the North American Origin store lists all versions of the game for $59,99 (which is an oddity in itself, at least for the PC version, that normally costs less), Electronic Arts saw fit to charge 10 Euros more to European customers wanting to enjoy the game on the upcoming next generation console by Microsoft than to those preorderding the Xbox 360 version (or 10 Euros less to those playing on 360, depending on the point of view).In fact the Xbox 360 version of the game is priced at €59.90, while the Xbox One version will grab €69.90 away from our wallets. European PC gamers are luckier, as they will have to spend only €49.90, adding further confusion to the fact that in the North American store the PC version … [Read more...] about Titanfall for Xbox One Priced 10 Euros Above Xbox 360 Version on European Origin Store and Other Oddities

While it may not be catching on with the same speed and success as high-definition, 3D looks to be the next frontier for manufacturers of televisions and electronics. In the games arena the PlayStation 3 is currently the only console offering full stereoscopic 3D, but according to industry sources, that won’t be the case for long. Rumors are now pointing to Microsoft adding stereoscopic 3D to the Xbox 360 in the near future, with an announcement of the move at this year’s E3 seeming increasingly likely.Owners of an Xbox 360 and a television supporting 3D are currently able to enjoy games like Black Ops and Crysis 2 in the glorious third dimension, but with both images being combined to form the ultimately 720p image.That apparently isn’t tapping into the console’s full potential, at least according to a source claimed by Eurogamer.
