Post E3 not too much goes on in the gaming world, but there was a few follow up items worth looking at.

  • Mirror's Edge 2 Under Development
  • Sam & Max Hitting XBLA Next Week

Mirror's Edge 2 Under Development

Mirror's Edge was a solid action game released on the 360, PS3, and PC last year.  It featured a great visual style and atmosphere that kept players engaged in the story of a parkour girl named Faith.  Well the cat is out of the bag that Mirror's Edge 2 is under development and should be hitting sometime next year.

Microsoft says the Natal Launch to be as Big as the Xbox 360's

While Natal was talk of the show, we never did get a release date on it.  Whatever that date is, we're sure to see something huge from Microsoft though, at least according to Shane Kim.


"Conceptually, the launch of Natal will be like the launch of Xbox 360," Microsoft's head of long-term Xbox 360 strategy, Shane Kim, told Kotaku during an interview at E3. "It's going to be that big. We're not just going to ship it when the hardware and software are ready. We have to make sure that there are enough content experiences that are really good. That's similar to how you would think of the launch of a new console. It's got to have a great launch line-up. That's the same thing here."

Microsoft Kills the Coffin Box 

Have an Xbox 360 die on you?  Well then no doubt you received a "coffin box" from Microsoft to send the system back for their 3 year warranty exchange.  But now, Microsoft is doing away with the box, instead requiring gamers to use their own packaging.  

On the plus side this helps the turn around time as you no longer have to wait for the box to be shipped to you.  On the downside you may incur expenses trying to find appropriate packaging.
