Downtime this week-end

Downtime this week-end

The Tokyo Games Show will start in 2 weeks on Xboxyde and Playsyde, and in order for the sites not die under the number of visitors I will migrate them both to a temporary hosting facility using 2 or even 3 servers if needed. This migration will require at worst 30 minutes of downtime, and should happen tomorrow night, or maybe saturday afternoon.
Don't forget that any paypal donation helps us serve you guys even better!
Update : If you can read this, then you are on the new server pool. Enjoy your stay!

Yeah, we've selected 2 new guys. Nebur already posted a news on playsyde, and Twixmix has posted the poker news here.

Cool. Looking forward to what you guys'll put up.

My most unreasonable hope for TGS?
- Resident Evil 5 movies and/or screenshots and/or oh jesusgod give us something.

Many thanks to the donators!
The new servers aren't ready yet (I didn't even start in fact) so this won't be done until tomorrow night at best.

Ever since your awesome coverage and videos of kameo last year I decided this was THE place for 360 media. I love gametrailers as well though, but you guys beat IGN though you may not get all the coverage they do.

xboxyde, home of the definitive 360 media collection. :)

keep it up folks!

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i see he had major impact on halo:ce, halo 2, halo 3odst...good sign (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz There are a couple of videos of him flitting about the 343 offices and talking about Halo memorabilia and while it isn't confirmed, I'd be surprised if he isn't on H6. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: Staten along with Marty O'Donnell was a key figure at Bungie and is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft, he joined too late to influence Halo 5, but just in time to start Halo 6. (1 Hour ago)
