    I saw this back in 2004 and had been amazed. Does anyone know if this ever surfaced? Was it a functional application or just a rendered video?

    This was used to promote the up and coming Xbox 360.

    If it ever does surface, it might only work on one of those fancy early Powermac devkits -drool-. Didnt this tech demo got made by the guys from Pseudo Interactive (Full Auto)?

    I've seen a game called CRASH on the XBOX, but not the XBOX 360, my guess it's a rendered video :(

    Ah, I knew that. Of course, since it was an XNA tech demo... I accidentally posted it here because it came out on E3 2004 when Xbox 1 was on its peak. I'd been a bit tired. Maybe someone can move it?

    I think it's obvious that the video is rendered with all those weird scores and numbers increasing pointlessly, but maybe there was program behind it that calculated the deformations etc. in real time? I wish this would surface, even if it's just this one car and a preset speed. It was by far one of the most impressive tech demos I have ever seen for any console.

    Never seen it, but I'll admit it's really cool. Assuming it is from 2004, then odds are slim it'll actually turn up around these parts as I only know one or two people with Alpha Kits.

    I don't think it ever ran on actual dev hardware, this was just one out of three tech demos released on the 2004 E3 to show what their XNA stuff is capable of. I believe it ran on nothing but computers that were used for XNA development? I don't know very much about 360 development, so I'm not even quite sure how XNA software is developed.

    However, back then it was announced that the "crash" demo will become a launch title for the next Xbox console, but apparently this did not happen.

    What would that have to do with anything? This video clearly isnt Emergency Mayhem.

    No, it's a demo demonstrating the capabilities of the then upcoming XNA and it has been created by Microsoft themselves.

    Seems like this will be lost forever, or at least remain undiscovered. Maybe it's just lurking on some hard drive in a closet in Microsofts labs? I wonder if this was ever a real time application and if it actually ran on X360 prototype hardware.

    Didn't someone say that demo became the long forgotten 360 game Full Auto, published by Sega, or am I imagining that?

    Well with a name like that... Pseudo Interactive, that means they're not really interactive. So if you buy their games and none of the controls work, you've only yourself to blame.
