  • NXE: XNA community games region specific? [Updated]

    NXE’s XNA community games don’t appear to be available in all European regions.

    There’s a lengthy explanation from Bungie here as to why Halo 3’s load times are increased by installing the game the an NXE-enabled 360’s hard drive.

    Rare knocked up an Avatar of me a while back, but we’ve had to sit on the images until NXE launched. So here they are, after the break. That’s me, there, laughing and smiling. This is something I very rarely do, but this ably shows the cartoon nature of NXE’s Avatar stuff. As you should […]
