For console gamers in South Africa, the Xbox 360 would have had to have been the platform of choice for Respawn’s mech-battler Titanfall. Before the whole thing was denied a local release, anyway. Only it’s starting to look like that version is not only ugly, but runs poorly too. And that rumours been given a bit of a shot in the arm, as the Xbox 360 version has been delayed a second time.
EA’s confirmed that the 360 version of the game, developed by port-factory Bluepoint Games has been delayed to April 8. It was originally scheduled for release at the same time as the other versions on March 11, but was delayed to March 25. Many speculated it was to sell more Xbox Ones, but it seems more and more that the game just lacked polish – with reports of it running below 720p, at 30fps.

The era of the faux plastic instruments that littered your living is over, as music games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero are relegated to history. Also going the way of the dodo is DLC for Guitar Hero, so if you still want to get rocking, you’d best hurry.
Activision has confirmed that at the end of this month, DLC for its Guitar Hero, Band Hero and DJ Hero games will no longer be available for download.
You’ll still be able to play online, and anything you’ve already downloaded and paid for remain yours. As a thank you to fans, they’ll be discounting tunes on the digital storefronts until the music sections of those digital storefronts go dark.
