Xbox 360

The oh-so-delayed Eidos game Battlestations: Midway is now under development for X360 and PC, which means that the Xbox version is canned. I hope they have a great gameplay idea in mind, cause it doesn't look that promising. First X360 images inside.

Could be good, they need to look at what Blazing Angels did wrong.

Nah, they are X360 screens. New ports are often in 1280x960 - Timeshift was, for example.

Boulet this if its too big, but it makes the game sound more interesting than a Blazing Angels clone.
Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today confirms that Battlestations: Midway will be released on Xbox 360™ and PC in autumn 2006.

Taking advantage of Microsoft’s next-generation video game and entertainment system, Battlestations: Midway on Xbox 360 delivers a genuinely new and exciting single and multiplayer gameplay experience.

Battlestations: Midway follows the story of naval recruit Henry Walker, whose first assignment as a gunner at Pearl Harbor is the starting point of an incredible career at the heart of the US Pacific Fleet in 1942, in what was to become one of the most inspirational military campaigns in history.

For the first time, relive the intensity of massive air, sea and underwater WWII battles in a unique mix of intense action and tactical gameplay. Directly control dozens of highly detailed warships, aircraft and submarines in a ‘free-control’ environment as you design and execute the best plans of attack. Command the colossal firepower of a fully armed battleship, engage the enemy in fierce dogfights through flak-infested skies or utilise the stealth of your submarine to unleash deadly torpedo attacks on unsuspecting enemies.

“Battlestations: Midway offers players a refreshingly new and exciting gaming experience, whilst maintaining an incredible level of detail which recreates the intensity and atmosphere of the Pacific War. The ability to jump from a raging dogfight to the deck of a destroyer, with the crew frantically running about around you on deck, to the silence of a prowling submarine provides a unique and at times breathtaking experience. And, of course, watching your mate’s aircraft carrier sink past your sub after a sneaky online torpedo attack is extremely satisfying!” said Brand Manager, Matt Russell.

“On Xbox Live™, gamers will be able to take part in gripping cooperative games and the high-definition mode really brings to life the glorious scale of Midway battles,” said Klaude Thomas, Producer. “The power of Xbox 360 allows us a greater level of detail – self-shadowed, bump-mapped and textured in high resolution, which you simply couldn’t do before now”

If this game looks like this and doesnt have Blazing Angel's horrible Vsync problem, I'll be happy.

I don't think it looks too bad. It's not one of the most visually astounding games out there but it still looks decent.

I think it looks great. Sure it doesn't have X/Y/Z current gimmick effect (bloom comes to mind) but I like it more because of that. Critically, the lighting model could do with a bit of polishing however, although that wouldn't exactly be a trivial thing to do at such a stage in development (especially given development history of the game).

    Zat @MrWhite: Thank You...fascism and police is what was missing here. :-D Congrats on that. That Hitler got me...so hilarious. XD (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Oh, and missing the point of the whole BLM thing. I mean, they aren't specifically stating that no other lives but black lives matter. Thick people need that pointing out to them. (2 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Absolutely oblivious to the fact he's supporting a police state. The implications of that meaning he's supporting fascism. Then again, he probably attends Klan meetings and has a poster of Hitler (2 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: It's not even about politics in this case, though. It's just good old fashioned racism and bigotry. Murder is fine...so long as its a black man. (2 Hours ago)

  • Zat

    Zat And it's also funny, because ppl like Nostradamus will be the first to call the cops, when shit hits the fan. Just amusing. Really. (5 Hours ago)

  • Zat

    Zat That's something, what half the populations fails to understand. Unfortunate event happened. It doesn't mean, we will glorify some criminal scum and call this rasist act, just because he was black. :) (5 Hours ago)

  • Zat

    Zat @Yarost: Still nothing racist on it. You just need to make clear, what racism means. I'm not saying black people are bad. I'm saying this BLM is bullshit. Because other lives matter too. (5 Hours ago)
