CVG- Brilliant as Xbox Live is, it's often easy to feel lonely there. Venture onto a public Call of Duty server and you'll find yourself surrounded by screeching pre-teens and the sort of language that would cause Grandma to tut her false teeth all the way out of her mouth. That's why with the advent of the Party system it's easy to recede back into small groups of friends (and why co-op is now as essential a component as deathmatch). That becomes Xbox Live to you - just you and a handful of mates.
But there's always been a reminder that you're part of a wider, more diverse community that's brought together by a love of Xbox 360, in the shape of Inside Xbox.
