What's New With XBox Live

Yesterday at E3, Microsoft had a few neat things to share on what’s to come for XBox Live.

1. By now everyone knows that Natal is now known as Kinect. One of the neat features that doesn’t require a game, is the ability to video chat with friends and family with Video Kinect.

2. ESPN is coming to XBL. No word if this is only in America or not but that’s the buzz so far. If you have a gold account, This November you will be able to access games, on demand videos and much more with ESPN on XBL.

3. If you own a Zune, Microsoft’s own media player, and if you have Zune Pass, you will be able to access your music on XBL, even if you don’t have your Zune connected to the system. The Zune Pass is $14.99 each month and allows you to download as much music as you want. If you’re unsure about an album, Zune Pass allows you to download the entire album and have a listen to see if its something you like. Best part, it stays on your Zune until you want to delete it.

These new additions just adds more reason as to why XBL is better than PsN. Even though we have to pay for their online service, it’s clearly worth it.
