We're currently looking for players to participate in a "Gamers' Battle" segment for Pinoy Gamers. The taping for this will be held some time in the coming week. The games being considered for the Gamers' Battle are:

1. Guitar Hero World Tour / Rock Band 2 (Guitar or Drums pro-face off)

3. Gears of War 2 - either 1vs1 or 2vs2 depending on available hardware
4. Virtua Fighter 5
5. Any other competitive game.

The game chosen will depend on the available volunteers and their preference for which games. So if you're interested to join, please visit the discussion thread here and sign up. We need players that have a flexible schedule, because we're still ironing out the other details with Pinoy Gamers.

Launch Party : Playground On Air
Date: December 19, 2008
Time: 4PM - 12MN
Venue: Eastwood City Central Plaza

Discussion thread for this event is posted here.

PLAYGROUND Magazine is holding an event on December 19 at the Eastwood City Central Plaza. Pinoyxbox will be on hand to set up a gaming booth where gamers can sample the latest games and demos. We'll also be holding a tournament there for Gears of War 2.

Our tournament for the Playground Magazine event will be based on Gears of War 2's HORDE MODE. Basically, players each have to score the most number of points against other players by killing as many Locust monsters as they can. The player with the highest score at the end of the tournament, wins. Prize details for this tournament will be posted as soon as Playground magazine makes those details available.

For now, check out the details on the tournament and the Pinoyxbox booth at Playground Magazine's event here.

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts


- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
