We're happy to introduce Myles Gordon our first ModNation "Super Creator!" Myles specializes in making unique-looking and technically sound tracks.

Game Informer's August issue features a piece on Mr. Gordon and the amazing tracks he's created. Our focus on Myles starts with some of his tracks and a short Q&A.

MylesG Tracks

Here is an overview of some of the highlight tracks among the Tours. There are eight Tours total with four tracks each. To find them just do a text search under tracks for "P Tour", "M Tour", "G Tour", "O Tour", "N Tour", "R Tour", "Q Tour" or "W Tour."

Track Name: M Tour 3: Aquatica

MylesG says: "Water and fire mix in this ocean-based Stunt Park. Aquatica is all about big air, big stunts and big speed. Skilled racers will be able to maintain max boost throughout most of this course due to long drifts and huge air time."

Track Name: O Tour 4: Sky Fleet

MylesG says: "Take to the skies above Tek City and join the battle that rages above. Help...
 

IBM Anti-Geohack Patent to Protect Secrets Against Attacks?!

800°
263w ago - A few weeks back GeoHot Hacked PS3, and now a new patent has surfaced from Kanna Shimizu of IBM for a method to protect secrets against encrypted section attacks.

SKFU writes: It seems it is SONY's answer for GeoHot's progress.

Take a look here, to quote: "A method, system, and computer-usable medium are disclosed for controlling unauthorized access to encrypted application program code. Predetermined program code is encrypted with a first key.

The hash value of an application verification certificate associated with a second key is calculated by performing a one-way hash function. Binding operations are then performed with the first key and the calculated hash value to generate a third key, which is a binding key.

The binding key is encrypted with a fourth key to generate an encrypted binding key, which is then embedded in the application. The application is digitally signed with a fifth key to generate an encrypted and signed program code image.

To decrypt the encrypted program code, the application verification key certificate is verified and in turn is used to verify the authenticity of the...
 

Seven More XBox 360 Secrets Microsoft doesn't Tell You!

50°
334w ago - We whetted your appetite with 10 Xbox 360 tricks Microsoft won't tell you, now here are seven more handy tips to help you get the best out of your console.

1. System updates by disc

Not got your console online yet, or having trouble downloading the latest dashboard update? Try downloading it from a web-connected PC or Mac instead and burning it to a CD. Grab the latest (well, latest-ish - hopefully Microsoft will update the page soon) update from the XBox 360 System Updates page, burn it to disc, then pop that disc into the 360 and turn it on. You'll be prompted automatically as to whether you want to run the update.

2. The towel trick

Bit of a controversial one this, at least as long as you count "possibly burning your house down" as controversial. What it is is a short-term fix for the infamous red rings of death, the mournful LEDs that announce your 360 is deaded. There are various theories about why it works, but the important thing is that, for some people, it does. The way to do it is to wrap the console in a towel or two - ensuring all sides of it are covered - then turn it on and leave it running for 10 minutes or so. Then turn it off, remove the towels, turn it on again and pray. If it's worked, it'll only stay alive for a few hours, but doing this a couple...
 

Secret Xbox 360 games

376w ago - The titles in development they don't want you to know about: There are some seriously anticipated sequels in the works right now, and we're about to strip them bare before your eyes...

Gears of War 2

We loved Epic's system seller as much as the next gamer. But, come on, after the never-ending hype it had... it wasn't finished, was it? The whole 'leaping into a jeep and roaring off just as the long-awaited Brumak tottered into view' reeked of a stitch-up, and when it was announced at E3 that PC owners would be getting a shedload of extra content... that was a ripe fart in the face for 360 owners.

Except if you really believe those naysayers, you're missing the bigger picture. As critically acclaimed as it was, Gears ended up being a sacrificial lamb. Why? So that the true blockbuster - Gears 2 - a bigger, better, ballsier and markedly more ambitious outing could shine even brighter. Epic are already well into development with their answer to Halo 3; in fact, by the time it's announced to widespread gasps and hollers at the climax of the Microsoft presentation at E3 '08 this upcoming summer, Gears 2 may even be at a stage where it's on course for a 'shock' Christmas 2008 release.

Don't believe it's possible given Epic's tradition of not releasing games...
