ESPN split screen on Xbox

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 31st, 2011

Sports fans will now have a special treat on the Xbox. Microsoft has confirmed plans to launch an updated version of the ESPN service on Xbox Live on Aug. 25. One of the most interesting new features is a split-screen view for watching two games at once.

The pdate coincides with the college football season. Other new features include a mini guide at the bottom of the screen, and the ESPN “BottomLine” news and score ticker that we all know and love. ESPN on Xbox 360 is free to Xbox Live Gold members who connect through participating broadband providers.

Is Microsoft planning an ESPN branded Xbox 360?

We’ve seen lots of different branding on Xboxs, but it’s never been a close encounter of the ESPN kind. Well, until now. Engadget was sent this mockup of an ESPN Xbox 360, which the tipster found on a Microsoft PR server.

It could be just a failed concept, however given the fact that ESPN 3 is live on the Xbox 360 Fall 2010 Dashboard Update, it makes sense for the two companies to merge in such a way. We’ll just have to wait and see if this gets real.

Cable and satellite TV are dying a slow Zombie death. The limbs are continually cut off, but the head has so far managed to avoid a kill shot. We wonder how much longer they can survive. The New York Times is reporting that some dealings are going down between Microsoft and Disney. The focus of these dealings is ESPN streaming on the Xbox 360.

Apparently live streams of sporting events could come to the console with the viewer paying a subscriber fee. There would also be related interactive games. None of this is confirmed, so don’t take it as fact just yet. Though we do love the idea.

Rock Paper Scissors League Championship

Rock Paper Scissors League Championship
If you happen to be in Las Vegas this weekend, you might want to check out the 2008 USA Rock Paper Scissors League Championship on June 20 in Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Champion with the best hand skills will win a $50,000 prize and a ticket to compete in Beijing,China during the Summer Olympics, where they will represent the U.S. in the inaugural International Rock Paper Scissors Federation Championship.

I’ve never been entirely clear on the official rules. It always gets tricky with rock against paper. Paper can wrap around a rock and strangle it, but on the other hand, rock can beat paper to a pulp. Check out the video below. It’s strangely mesmerizing.

BattleBots headed to ESPN

BattleBots headed to ESPN
The BattleBots concept is getting another shot, thanks to the robot loving ESPN 2 and ESPNU. The show will have a new format and an increased emphasis on the behind-the-scenes nerd stuff in the “pits” when the bots get hurt.

They’re doing away with the wedgebots and will also have more arena hazards. They will also have a new experimental class for featuring other bot types. The show was slated for June, but is being held back until November. So, if you are looking for a nerd come November, he’ll be in front of the TV. Then, shortly after, in the garage.
