Microsoft: Xbox Live Is Like An MMO

Kotaku: Given Microsoft's demonstration of Avatars gathering in a shared virtual movie theater at E3, it seemed that Xbox Live could be going in a PlayStation Home direction. Not quite, we were told.

Xbox Live as an MMO? The idea sounds odd at first, but the more we think about it here at Kotaku Tower, the more we see some merit to it.

The story is too old to be commented.

I never thought of live like that ,but im has a point.

"I think that Live is an MMO, but that doesn't mean you have to create a virtual world. I think that's the big difference between our approach and Sony's approach. An MMO is a living, breathing, dynamic thing where you can find people online and entertainment you can connect with... I think that metaphor applies to the platform. That's the way we think about it when we try to program new content and experiences into it...

"Who knows, maybe someday personalizing a space might be part of it, but that's not the same as creating a virtual a world that's the main way you interact with other people."

While Xbox live isn't an RPG were you raid dungeons for countless hours a day barely sparing time for life it does have that "pull" that makes you want to come and and see how your friends are doing.

Halo3 has clans that just like to make Halo3 videos and they are dedicated to it.

Which is why Halo3 is still successful...that and many other reasons of course.

Without a doubt I can say that Xbox Live is the best online service for consoles.

Xbox Lives NXE dashboard keeps the face of Xbox Live fresh with it constantly being updated with all the features.

Even if you don't participate in any of them it still feels fresh to turn on your Xbox and see something new everyday.

50$ a year is justified.
