Xbox 360 launches on MTV

As the Xbox 360 is launched on MTV there are a couple of videos worth checking out. Microsoft's own video is very much an informercial, but it's still worth checking out. And Gamespot's commentary on the Xbox 360 is quite informative.

Although the idea of community is exciting about the Xbox, I find that gaming seems to be moving towards the mainstream as a service and not so much as anything new. It feels like Fido has wrapped their hands around gaming as if it's the first time games existed. PCs have been doing the sort of things for games that Microsoft is doing for the Xbox for quite some time.
