Xbox Live Party Chat – The Death of Conversation within the Game Lobby


First off I should mention I adore Xbox Live and always have. It is the core Xbox feature that for me and many others, thrusts the platform far beyond that of what Sony and Nintendo currently offer. The fascination of sharing team instructions, having a laugh and of course belittling the enemy proves too wonderful to resist when it all works.

Ever since the Microsoft Xbox 360 console appeared, Xbox Live has quite rightly evolved with some truly remarkable features that expanded the system far beyond the original Xbox. There was an oversight though that aggravated many users and this was the lack of a dashboard chat option.

Windows Phone 7 – A Real Contender to Battle iOS and Android

When we think of smart-phones our instinct is to immediately consider Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android platform. These are spectacularly popular operating systems that have transformed the way in which we use our mobile phones and are evolving quickly as the competition attempts to out do their opponents.

Microsoft may have been a little late joining this battle, however don’t let that fool you into thinking they are out of the game. Windows Phone 7 designed specifically for smart-phones is a platform that oozes appeal and simplicity and although lacking a few of the features you may expect, they have finally left the starting blocks with something to be incredibly proud of.
