New Xbox games and peripherals

You wait ages for a bus then three come along at once

Source - press releases

Yesterday we received three Xbox related press releases, from Nuby, Simon & Schuster and Infogrames respectively. For the sake of you lot we thought we'd condense the news into a single item. Nuby bring us news that they have secured a deal with Microsoft to produce peripheral devices for the forthcoming Xbox. Amongst Nuby's products will standard accessories (rumble packs and memory cards perhaps) and also custom controllers. The press release, eager to tempt hacks like ourselves to their E3 booth, continues. "In addition, Nuby will be producing unique devices that will allow optimal interface between the player and the console. These new products will redefine gaming peripherals and how people use controllers to play games." Spooky! E3ers head to West Hall, booth #2108. Full release here. Simon & Schuster are accepting E3ers by appointment only, but they have quite a few things to show off for the Xbox. "Outlaw Golf" is their first Xbox title, an off-the-wall golf sim, with courses under the flightpath of Newark airport, in the middle of the nevada desert and in a swamp, where sand traps aren't the half of it. It also features "scientifically perfected Composure Response System (CRS)", which makes things more difficult the worse you get (harsh... -Ed) - that said, you can improve your composure by beating your caddy about the head with a golf club! Full release here. Infogrames is having a stab at Xbox development with another in their endless line of Test Drive games. Although we've yet to see a truly stunning title in the series, they have been gradually improving, and this latest addition looks to be the most accomplished yet, with more licensed cars and a new graphics engine to harness the power of the Xbox's NVIDIA graphics chip. Four exotic real world locations, refined physics, yadda yadda. It looks promising, and will be on show at E3 to boot. Full release here. Related Feature - Xbox "right on track"
