casey chesnut has solved the issue of streaming DivX to the XBox360, apparently even getting decent framerates over 802.11g. Since I recently upgraded to a “pre-N” wireless network (Linksys wrt54gx2 ? highly recommended), I am totally psyched.
I love Geometry Wars on XBox360; it’s a great arcade-style game that’s perfect for killing a couple of minutes. Amazingly, though, it’s apparently one of the few games that distributes its computation across the XBox’s three cores.
I find it wildly amusing that something that is essentially an updated “Asteroids” is using three times the computational power of Project Gotham Racing 3.
