XBox Live Now Changed to Live Later

While initially announced for an August 25 release, XBox Live Now will have to wait until mid-september. The enhancements to the Live service are promised to be widespread and exciting.

All changes, improvements and additions will be visible through the Xbox Dashboard. When you fire up your Xbox in mid-September (without a game in the tray), you'll be able to enjoy the new look and new capabilities.

Some Live Now Features

You'll get to your Friends list right away, in the Dash, without going through Account Management or starting up a Live game. On your Friends list, you'll see who's online and what game they're playing. If you want to invite them to join you in a new game, you can send the invite from the Dash! This makes it so much easier to hook up with your friends and get in a game.

You'll also be able to set up a Voice Chat session from your Dashboard.

XSN Sports, as introduced at E3 2003, will also be launched

Account Management is also on the main screen and has all the account management options that you have all come to know. If you just can't deal with change, just select Main Menu, and you'll be right back in the comfortable old main menu.

Once again, the Matrix sucks. But we all know that, so I won't preach on. Aww yes, the XBOX sucks. So does the "LIVE" network. PS2 sucks too...wow, I actually have to buy an add-on. The Cube? WTF? No "official" modem for online connectivity? Nintendo must be sucking 2 much d!ck to realize what's going on...along with putting out dozens of Pokemon games. N e how, Live Later...good. That means, they've lost now, and they'll lose later. PC gaming all the way and Anti-Trilogy Movies for eternity.

You're an idiot! Graphics and sound don't make a system great! Remember the N64? It was "better" than the PS, "stronger" than the PS, and "more promising" than the PS. And look what happened. The PS still won in the end...and it seems that the heir 2 the PS has done the same thing. Think of the XBOX as a dreamcast...see the similarities (controller, etc)? The DC didn't beat the PS in terms of sales or quality! The XBOX hasn't done so either! THe only good games on the stupid box is Splinter Cell and Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball...and Halo. Either than that? WTF? No other "redeeming" qualities. PS2 has 2 many 2 name...so I won't even start. Die Neo! BTW, stupid! Paying for LIVE!? Waste of money! Only spoiled white kids and asian faggots pay for stupid shits like that. PC all the way...and f**k FPS! And the Matrix!

OMG, the console war thing again?!guess things never change, but i thought the whole fanboy thing died out a long time ago people get their respective consoles to enjoy certain games or maybe because they like it, your flames or just as assenine as me saying that the sega saturn is better than alienware. and online ps2/xbox heck even cube users are so far beyond the system wars debate that its juvenile to even consider making an opinion on which system is better, I suggest at least trying to play the system you are talking about first and maybe you wont have all this pent-up rage toward a plastic case full of microchips.

"To bad we sell 6 xbox's for every 1 PS2 for the last 6 weeks at best buy."XBOX could sell 40 units to the PS2 1 for the next year and they still would not have 0ver 40 million plus user base like the ps2. PS2 is selling more then any console. Period. It's not the best console. However, it has been out the longest and markets their product quite well.

Bla bla bla bla, Read about games not consoles! Or you pass most of your time enjoying the menu screen? by the way, most of the games are multi platform so, doesnt matter if you own a xbox and ps2, the great games will come out for both (wich good publisher would do different?) and, xbox has a hd and looks better, so, If I would buy a console with more features I would buy I xbox, if I had the money, I would buy both and keep my mouth shutted!

I say a true gamer is someone who realizes when old junk is old junk (you can all gather what I'm saying)And that goes for all the creeps who still play outdated video games like counter strike, or half-life for that matter-what a boring, stretched out game that wouldn't just DIE!!!P.S. Also note to be a true gamer you can't get all riled up and hunt someone down and shoot them just because they did minus 5 damage with their magic missles to your imaginary character. Ya just got to keep your cool.

f**k counter strike, Q3A mods are better than HL's and X-Box sucks, if any console getta PS2 or Game Cube (whatever to your liking, i prefer PS2) and PC online is the best for Multiplayer...play better games like BF1942, Quake 3 Arena, Medal Of Honor, hell even EverQuest would be okay..

But now will post that he has and says it sucks because he is stuck with a ps2.

You are all such freakin' geeks, it's unnerving. Wait, big word... it's disturbing. Simple enough for you? All this 'true gamer' shit? Doesn't mean a d**k. A friends list is a virtual friends list... perhaps if some of you had some real friends, then you wouldn't get so pissed off all the time at someone insulting your console, or your beloved PC. I urge some of you to crawl from your parents basements, see the sun again, and enjoy life for what it's supposed to be. Again, this is only some of you, so if you don't fit into the above, then good for you.
