Feel the sunshine in Mars: War Logs trailer

[springboard type="video" id="666695" player="xbla001" width="640" height="400" ]

Cyberpunk action-roleplaying adventure Mars: War Logs shows off its sunnier side in its first official trailer. Soaked in sunlight and soulful melody, the trailer only hints at the dirty, dingy underbelly that is everyday life for the colonists of Mars.

Mars: War Logs takes place several undetermined hundreds of years in the future where humankind's colonization of the Red Planet has failed. The surviving remnants of those efforts have devolved into civil war for control of the most precious commodity on the planet: water. Because life's not hard enough, helping to ensure everyday could be the last are the mutants, the religious zealots and that beautiful sun. That savagely beautiful sun, scourging the surface with solar radiation in doses suitable for proper skin liquefaction.

You'll take on the role of Roy Temperance, the renegade whose story intertwines with the fate of the planet, as you fight against the aforementioned martian horrors and the corporate ruling class. Boasting a deep stable of intriguing characters, dozens of unlockable skills and perks and customizable equipment, Mars: War Logs is shaping up to be unique, to say the least.

Helmed by Spiders Studios, Mars: War Logs runs on the studio's cleverly named and obviously gorgeous Silk engine, spinning it's way toward a tentative "Spring 2013" release date. We'll keep this one on our radar. In the meantime, feast your eyes on a bevy of silky screens after the jump.

Rumor: Next Xbox to ship with Kinect, new controller and 500GB HDD

Rumor: Next Xbox to ship with Kinect, new controller and 500GB HDD

By  •  Rumors

Xbox Kinect

Microsoft's still-unannounced next-generation Xbox console will ship with a new control pad, a 500GB HDD, a "much-improved" Kinect motion sensor and the ability to run multiple games/apps simultaneously, according to a Kotaku source who claims to be in possession of a development kit for the machine said to be codenamed Durango. According to Kotaku's article, all Durango SKUs will not only ship with a Kinect sensor, but they will also only function when one is connected.

This latest next-gen scuttlebutt follows in the still-crashing wake churned up by another round of rumors that XBLAFans reported on just last week. The sources behind those rumors also asserted that the so-called Xbox 720 would bring with it a new and improved version of Microsoft's motion-sensing technology.

Regular next-gen rumor followers will be familiar with Kotaku's latest rumor source, who goes by the handle "SuperDaE." He, as Kotaku identifies him, caught gamers' attention last summer when he attempted to sell what he said was an Xbox Durango dev kit on eBay. Interestingly, SuperDaE said the sale was intercepted by Microsoft and prevented from going through on account of copyright issues. Microsoft has not acknowledged as much and is unlikely to considering that it has so far done everything short of wave its collective hand in front of a Kinect sensor like some sort of Jedi Knight and confidently state that there is no next-gen Xbox whenever the subject has been broached.

SuperDaE's information, which was supposedly gleaned from a score of Microsoft whitepapers, points to the next-gen Kinect sensor being capable of tracking up to six gamers simultaneously (up from two in the current version) and 25 of each player's skeletal joints (up from 20). Color and depth resolution and depth range are said to be getting dramatic increases, and "Active IR resolution" is reportedly being added to Kinect's specs. The whitepapers say Kinect will always be watching users and that it will automatically detect players and associate them with their Xbox Live accounts.
