Here's the IGN report: DivX
This sucks! No way am I going to start paying a monthly fee through my telephone to play an Xbox game! Goddamn M$ and their larcenous ways! Oh...the OTHER DivX. Sorry.
Circuit City really bit it in the ass on that lame-o model.
Read the link before you freak out. it sounds like they are just using the compression tech, for making nice looking cinematics. It doesnt seem like it is for making people pay month by month.
I remember the crappy divx players. I was just pointing out that this wasn't a pay-for-play model for those who like to jump into threads without reading the links.
Trevor- they were just being sarcastic, note the smileys. This makes NO sense as MS has their own high compression codec that works good for hi-def material, WM9. Maybe Microsoft/3rd party developers prefer the quality of DivX encoding??
MS isn't making the SDK that includes DivX support. Factor 5 is. They make compression technology, which is why they're able to fit amazing looking games (like Rogue Leader) onto single discs. I read somewhere else in this forum that Factor 5 used only 200 MB of space for all of Rogue Leader. http://www.factor5.com/history.shtml Go there and read the first message there. Apparently, they made an SDK for the GameCube with DivX support last October and are planning to bring the technology to all consoles.
To find out more about that earlier incarnation of DivX, check out the old Divx Lover web site. Note: plant tongue firmly in cheek before proceeding... great fun awaits those who read through this site! Gary
Was this used on the Enter the Matrix? I remember reading here that the PC version was going to be 6 cd's and now is 4 cd's cause they switched codecs. Thanks
God bless DivX. It makes por..... nevermind.
