    Instant Messaging comes to Xbox 360, expanding the
    largest social network on television

    Xbox 360 owners can connect with more than 260 million Windows Live
    Messenger users on Xbox 360, Windows-based PCs and Windows Mobile-powered
    devices beginning the week of May 7


    AUCKLAND 11 April 2007 – Your Xbox LIVE® friends list is about to get a
    whole lot bigger. Microsoft Corp. announced the launch of Windows Liveâ„¢
    Messenger on Xbox 360â„¢, connecting friends across Xbox 360 consoles,
    Microsoft® Windows®-based PCs and Windows Mobile®-powered devices. With
    this update to Xbox 360, friends and families can easily connect and chat
    directly from their television using Windows Live Messenger, a network of
    more than 260 million active accounts.

    Is this the difference between buying a Wii, a PS3, or an Xbox360?
    The guy across the road has an XBox360 and he 'talks' to other players via
    his mic, which he thinks is *marvellous*
    But will an IM client be an improvement?

    You're a bit slow off the mark, last night at the WLUG meeting several
    people used their cellphones to connect to the wifi, and browse their
    email, and IRC.
    The thing about the XBox utilising IM software is, wouldnt it interupt
    people in the middle of their game?
