Xbox 360 kiosks headed to children's hospitals across the US

A few weeks ago Microsoft announced a new partnership with the non-profit organization Companions in Courage which is dedicated to supporting families with children who are dealing with life-threatening medical conditions. As part of the partnership, Microsoft will be supplying hundreds of standalone Xbox 360 kiosks to children's hospitals across the country. The first wave of kiosks have been installed at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, the Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center of Seattle and the Children's Hospital of Orange County, California.

Not only will the kiosks feature games, TV shows and movies, but they'll also be all connected to each other with a special version of the Xbox LIVE network allowing kids from one hospital to interact and play games with kids from another.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think this is a really, really bad idea.
The disappointment of getting a RROD or getting cussed like never before on XBOX LIVE might actually hurt those kids.

God help them.

I think these terminally ill children have a bit more to worry about than RROD. Man, you must be a freakin imbecile in real life.
