In my not-insignificant gaming experience, XBox Live! has to be one of the slickest on-line gaming experiences one will ever encounter. It’s no surpise then that Microsoft is pushing Live! as one of the key aspects (if not the key aspect) of the next-gen XBox.

If Microsoft can translate the Halo 2 online experience to more games, then I’m totally for it. The idea of gaming online with a group of friends – rather than having a hit-and-miss affair by choosing servers manually – is excellent.
