After I posted up a how to video which helped users properly connect the Xbox 360 to their HDTVs so they could get the best possible visual quality out of it, I started to get a lot of comments asking for help of a different nature.  I mentioned in the earlier video that some users would have the option to use HDMI cable instead of the standard Xbox 360 AV cable and it would be preferable to use that instead.  HDMI’s setup is much simpler and doesn’t require tinkering with the Xbox 360’s resolution settings unless you wanted to.

So here is the proper procedure for connecting your HDMI-equipped Xbox 360 to your HDMI-equipped HDTV, and if you have one, HDMI equipped surround sound receiver.  All that is required for this is some HDCP compliant HDMI 1.3 cable, which isn’t usually included with the Xbox 360’s package.

Announced originally at the Ubisoft E3 Media Briefing, ZombiU is a brand new franchise from Ubisoft designed exclusively to take advantage of the new Wii U controller.  To get a better feeling for what kind of world this game will be like, here’s the game’s official announcement trailer.

But there’s a lot more to the game than just its atmosphere.  How does it play and more importantly what features can it take advantage of from the Wii U and how do those features help the player?

Well you can be sure that you will have a lot riding on that Wii U controller, and that’s because one bite and the game’s over.  To combat that you’ll have to take full advantage of all the resources you’ll be getting in this game thanks to the Wii U controller.

ZombiU is coming exclusive to the Wii U from Ubisoft.

Batman Arkham City Armored Edition Preview June 21, 2012

Announced at E3 2012 at the Nintendo E3 Press Conference, Batman Arkham City Armored Edition is more than just a port of Batman: Arkham City for the Nintendo Wii U, it features whole new gameplay mechanics made possible by the Wii U controller.

In it, you’ll be able to play through the story of Batman: Arkham City as armored versions of Batman and Catwoman.  While the game’s overall storyline looks to be the same (and I definitely saw some snippet in the Wii U trailer for the Harley Quinn’s Revenge paid DLC expansion) whole new features, dubbed the “B-A-T System” will be accessible to the player through the Wii U’s touchpad screen controller.

The player will have access to the new computer on Batman’s wrist from the touchscreen on the Wii U Controller, enabling a whole slew of features including quick gadget access, full dossiers of all the heroes and villians in Batman’s world, a whole new scanning and hacking system, and finally fully immersive control over Batman’s remote batarang, using the controller’s gyroscopes.
