Ancient picture possible first glimpse into Halo 3's Purple Reign


Plugging Halo 3 Purple Reign into your favorite search engine will link you to almost every major message board ignited by the discovery of an image used in a NY Times article from October 2007. Halo fanatics are adamant that the image (above) is the first real look at the upcoming Halo 3 map, Purple Reign.

Based on the description from Bungie on the recently delayed map this image could be a section from Purple Reign. Skeptical message board users claim the image could be a stock photo from Bungie's Halo 2 Midship days, pre-destruction photos of the Cortana level or even shots from the High Charity section of Halo 2's campaign mode. One commenter is sure he heard former community lead Frank O'Connor and Luke Smith talk about this image claiming it wasn't the new map but we couldn't find a source to validate that point.

Be it Purple Reign or not one thing is certain, gamers are still itching for more Halo action. The official description of Purple Reign, which adds weight to this image being true, after the jump.

PDZ demo, maps, updates hitting XBLM "soon"


Microsoft just sent out a press-release announcing some new content for their first-party launch title, Perfect Dark Zero. We knew Rare was working on some maps and some fixes for PDZ, but the demo is a nice freebie. So, here's what's included:
  • PDZ demo; Outpost campaign level in solo mode, split-screen co-op, XBL co-op
  • New multiplayer map, Plaza.
  • Auto-update featuring 8 new bot personalities (no word on bug fixes...flying rag doll guy, I'm looking at you)
  • XBL Marketplace downloadable content including four new multiplayer maps (no word on cost).
They don't announce a release date for anything, instead opting for the much more vague release date of "soon." Check out the relevant portions of the press-release on the flipside.

Google Maps on your 360 with MCE app


Colin, at the humbly named Colin's Blog, got bored so he decided to make a Google Maps app for Media Center. Simply download the file here and place it into your media center folder on the Start menu.

The controls are simple: use ChUp/ChDn to control zooming in and out and use the arrow buttons to move around. You see where we're going with this now; using the 360's Media Center extender capabilities, you can sit on the couch and check out maps of the entire world, through your 360!

There is a web-based version here, which can be controlled with the arrow keys and the PgUp/PgDn buttons. Why you ask... what's the point? Because you can!
