Called Microsoft Xbox, the island appears to have only been in existence for a few scant hours. It's locked down, of course, and there's likely nothing to see yet, but obviously Microsoft have additional plans in Second Life.
" the island appears to have only been in existence for a few scant hours. "... that is kinda wrong. The island was mentioned first time some months ago, but none could access it yet.
No idea what it will be, but I don't need any second life things for 360.
edit: @DADO, yes answer to HOME comes to mind, but why does MS have to answer to Home? I only see home as a gathering place of teenage males (due the lack of community/girls in community).Gives me chills really. "hey look at my new pants, shirt and hair...ooh wow".. yikes.
It might be M$ answer to PS3 Home!
@ 2 info on 2nd life
what's second life
I would like it if you could download it to your hard drive.
I would like to be playing gears, and jump into second life on the fly to chat with a friend, then jump back to gears.
I hope this is how Home will be too. If I had to swap a disc, I probably wouldnt enjoy it as much, I prefer the games.
on Xbox Live you can chat with your friend without having to leave Gears. So there's no reason for "Second Life to chat". But if you fill impelled to jump off Gears you can always go to the dashboard then boot up Gears.
I do it all the time, my buddy plays tennis, while I play Forza, or vice versa, and we talk.
I meant, actually jumping into the game.
Like when you are playing Gears, and a friend invites you to play an arcade game, all you have to do is press "accept", and you are playing the game.
No disc changing needed. I believe home will be this way, you are playing a game, you get a message that a friend is in your Home, and you press a button, and instantly you are in your Home.
If I had to swap to a "Home" or "2nd Life" disc, my friend would be gone by the time I got the thing booted up.
I don't want to live in no virtual world I just want to play games. That's it. If Microsoft does make something like the PS3's Home I'm not going to use it, unless they make it so that my XBL clan can have a "house of meeting" then I might look into it.
Clan rooms might be the only good thing in these kind of things. IF that is possible.
There is something missing on the island. It does not have a red ring. LOL
Yet somebody disagreed with you...
how you are going to run SL on xbox180 without HDD???
give this guy a Gold Medal for originality
Don't worry about him.
At least 180 is a lot more than 3.
after all the crap Shane Kim talked about HOME, once again microsuck copies Sony.
copy sony? second life being out for a long time... way before sony even thought about home. the one thing sony should get credit on.. is by being the first to bring to consoles... ofcourse... if it's no delayed... an microsoft releases first.
(I went from 7 bubbles to 4... in one day... on a sunday... something I said? I guess I have become a very important adversary to the Sony protection group.... which have invated this site and are all trying to silence anyone that have an opion or an argue the crap they are trying to spread) I never comment that much on posts... So, take my bubbles away... if it gets to the point where I only endup with one.. then be it... I will be fine just reading articles).
Both companies copy each other. I can give you an example right off the front page of this site! Gamertags.. This is an Xbox 360 thing yet it's being copied.
No big deal both companies do it.. I don't think the insecure Sony crowd has anything to worry about when it comes to threating HOME. The gamers that I know have zero interest in HOME and I think the 360 console has a complete enough experience it doesn't really need it.
I have a feeling it won't take long at all for some virtual catastrophe to happen there.
Xbox 180!? u losers need lives! Xbox 360 and ps3 are just game systems not religious idols. Get a soul.
Finally, someone who isn't a fanboy. You sir, get a bubble from me.
Lots of real-world retailers have online "homes" in second life that are basically just advertising zones. Most major car dealers have them, for example, and some even "sell" their "prototype" cars that allow you to zoom around in the game.
360 and 180 are two different numbers. You seem to be slightly confused there, maybe if someone could teach this guy the fundamental principles of counting... it wud appear to be more eye-sight related though, cus im pretty sure all the advertisements advertise it as xbox360...
O wait, i see, its just plain ignorance.
I wont even start with "fart_bubbles", that fella is simply lost.
