Aren't you all going to enjoy transcoding ALL of your content to WMA & WMV. 'Cuz my money is on Bill making you do that so that the DRM hooks are inserted.

And none of what I've seen in this thread or linked to in this thread states otherwise.

The 'playsforsure' shit mentioned by Toms Hardware would point to some sort of transconding to get all thos Xvid-Divx-GordianKnot'd-TsnuamiFilterPack'd moovies to play for Joe Six Pack &  Granny Smith without calls to Redmond-on-the-Ganges offshore tech support line.

Ok, I've got a couple questions:

1. Do you think that since the original Xbox controllers were basically a USB format, (just with a different physical plug), would we be able to use an Xbox->USB converter cable and use them on the Xbox360? (since the wired 360 controllers are USB as well) ?

2. Does anybody know if they've announced if there's a way to transfer data from an original Xbox to an Xbox360? I was thinking that since they said you could use the USB ports to put files onto the 360, maybe you could copy your saved games and profiles onto a flash drive from an original Xbox and then put them on the 360. What do you think?

NO and NO



Both of those have been confirmed as definite NOs from MS



Meaning NO there wont be an officially supported way and NO they wont allow 3rd party products to do those things either (both legally and through hardware security).

Where has this been confirmed by M$?  I've seen a lot of speculation, but I haven't seen anything from M$ directly.  Where did you get this info?  I'm not questioning your correctness, I'm just wondering where you got your info.

Various Interviews, the XS news page, Major Nelson's Blog... It's all old news and If I see something more than 5 or so places I stop keeping track of where it came from (should be considered common knowledge at that point).



I should also note that these are NEGATIVES against the console, meaning that MS doesn't just go around boasting about it like they do with some new XBL features.



In most cases they were asked outright in interviews and then 4 or 5 news sources would report on it.

No kidding it's a negative!  That's lame.  They were so close to getting it right.

I would imagine their methods are purely based on $$



No transfer of save games makes new 360 games more appealing than old Xbox games



No 3rd party controllers or Xbox controller adapters means you have to buy new controllers

more money for MS

There is bound to be someone here that already has a 360 that could answer that question. Speculatively, I would expect it to support playback of only the formats that Windows Media Player plays natively without any codec plug-ins. I am certainly expecting that the 360 will play not even a tenth of the range of formats that a chipped XBox running XBMC will play.



Anyone tell us what audio/video formats they've tried yet, and which ones have succeeded/failed ?
