Microsoft has announced that a new 500GB media option will be available for the Xbox 360 later this year.

The hard drive itself is set to a estimated retail price of $110, with pre-orders starting on Microsoft’s website soon. This will put the Xbox 360 on par with the Xbox One in terms of hard drive size making it easier to save movies, music, games and downloadable content.

The 500 GB hard drive upgrade will only be compatible with Xbox 360 S and Xbox 360 E versions, so original fat console owners will have to skip out of this.



The unique physics based game Gang Beasts has already hit the hands of popular Youtubers such as PewDiePie which you can view below.

Double Fine, who has already developed and published a handful of titles such as Brutal Legend, Stacking and the latest Kickstarter funded project Broken Age, will be adding Gang Beasts to their arsenal. If you follow Youtubers such as PewDiePie, you may have already seen some gameplay from this game.

The game itself is a goofy way of describing a brawler; Rag doll physics play a huge part in the game as you fight with short stubble arms. As a whole, it is just a very silly game to play with friends which should involve lots of laughs.

While the game itself is not fully completed yet, Gang Beasts will launch on August 29th, 2014 for Steam as part of Steam’s Early Access Program.

Razer also announced that a Chroma SDK will be made available to developers to help integrate this feature into their software.

This is just one of the many examples which will be possible with Razer’s new “Chroma” technology.

“Our new range of peripherals that feature Chroma customizable backlighting is another step towards full personal customization and to interconnect our gaming tech,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Chroma represents more than just multicolor, it opens up limitless personalization options for gamers to play with and we even have a Chroma Software Developer Kit for game developers to integrate their games to provide even more customization in the future.”
