Video gaming extravaganza
I’ll be helping out the “noobs” on XBOX Live (I was selected to be an XBOX Ambassador). I imagine they will need the most help during the free Gold weekends (where sponsors like Verizon pay for the free Silver Xbox members to get Gold features for a limited time).
There is a neat OSX Widget for XBOX Live Friends List that I discovered through an article over at Penny Arcade. Only down side is that it uses Safari for the engine, so if you typically use Firefox and are logged in, the Widget will still not be signed in until you authenticate to XBOX.com via Safari.
E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) is next week. All of the year’s new games and systems will be announced. For the first time, we’ll be able to play demos and see trailers of unreleased content from the show floor via XBOX Live! Very exciting stuff!
