    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?
