    "Games for Windows - Live" beta

    Hey all I thought i would share this with you all since you see im such a nice person.
    M$ are giving people the chance to particpate in their live anywhere system. Even if you hate m$ you can not stop to know this is going to be big.

    Are you interested in being part of a select group that is invited to help beta test a new service that lets Windows gamers connect with their friends on the Xbox through the LIVE gaming network?

    Enjoy

    I don't see how the PC - X360 link-up will work well.
    Every 360 will have the same hardware spec, same settings in game (to a degree), the only real difference will be the size of TV/monitor you are running.
    But no two PC's are going to be the same.
    I can see a lot of lag and packet loss for PC gamers in 360 games.

    Re: "Games for Windows - Live" beta

    I signed up as I got a invite from MS....

    although I doubt I'll get picked as I have dont have a x360 [or a live account] lol

    But I do have a PC and the idea is that players on PC's can play against players on X360 [and vice versa] so you never know hehe

    Cheers

    Joostâ„¢ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. We're in the process of making it as TV-like as we can, with programmes, channels and adverts. You can also see some things that we think will enhance the TV experience: searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat.

    PM me your email address and i will give an invitation
