    In years past various people have taken to posting up NFOs and release names (similar to what we do for the Wii and DS) as well as if they are nuked (and if so why and if it affects people (stuff like bad nfo, bad directory name, no compression.... does not affect play but it contrary to scene rules) and the like which has always gone down well among the frequenters of this section. What regions a game works in is also good to share if you have the info.

    It looks to be a long and busy season ahead of us so I am looking for people that are either willing to do a once a day post (of all of them or just the big releases) or as you like (no need to be speedy- just once a day or something)- basically no need to sit in a pre chan and run here as it comes out but something casual; a cut down version of Hadrian's upcoming releases was what happened before. If you like you can also grab any that have been missed.

    No previous experience required and sites like http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36 and http://www.abgx.net/filename/?ch=6 should gain all that is necessary for the posts.
    Others include http://pre.scnsrc.net/index.php?cat=xbox360 and sites like http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/ and http://www.gamerevolution.com/release/view...?system=xbox360 can be useful although things tend to be a day or two ahead of retail a lot of the time so I would not rely on them to much (the abgx360 iso checking tool does tend to rely on actual releases for info so it might be good). Some stuff seems to already be happening and this is just an attempt to get a little bit organised to save duplicate posts and stuff being missed.

    I will take today, tomorrow and the back releases from the last couple of weeks until we can get something sorted out. As it is ultimately just a bit of copying and pasting splitting it up would probably only serve to make it a logistical nightmare but if you think you can convince us otherwise then feel free.

    I'm willing to do it, Got some free time on my hands and starting to mod 360's around my area, so I have to be up to date with what new games are out and this would coincide with what I'm doing.

    Hi imtony, thanks for the offer and I will take you up on it but it seems most of the big September releases have already happened so the next few days should be rather sedate (some days it may not even be necessary to post anything).
    Still should something happen (a big nuke or release) and I have not posted it feel free to tap something out (you have all the links I use up there) or if you like you can make a thread for an individual game (couple of examples around here already) and I will link it in the "daily" summaries.

    As October looms and things really kick off (most of the big releases for September have now happened pretty much leaving us with one or two region dupes and whatever leaks from October) it could get a lot more hectic though (as it stands it takes me longer to gather the NFOs and do formatting for the post than it actually does to get the info).

    @others regarding today, quite a bit happened since last release but I will give it few more hours to see if anything more is going to.

    Yeah, seems like the next big hits will probably be CODMW2, Tekken6, Max Payne 3, etc.
