Rumoured new Xbox 360 boxes no longer state Xbox Live?

1 min read


First up these look fake to me (but they aren’t) so I am slapping the big Wild Rumour category on this. BUT at the same time they back up what I think is going to happen this weekend.

The last time we spoke to Yvette van Rooyen from Microsoft South Africa she stated that there was going to be a big announcement about Xbox Live that will benefit us at E3 this year.

However there have also been other rumours about Xbox Live across the net stating that all the countries requesting Xbox Live are going to be getting it and as such I am expecting the entire idea of Xbox Live being separate to the Xbox 360 to be dropped.

On Sunday or Tuesday I expect Microsoft to announce that Xbox Live is now going to be called Xbox Live Anywhere and will immediately be available across all regions. Certain DLC and movies will still be restricted in certain regions but we will be able to purchase points in our local currency and all DLC legal to our country will be available.

Honestly it won’t make a ton of difference to us but what I am truly hoping for (but not expecting) is that Hulu is announced across all regions as well.

    One of the reasons I cancelled xbox live was the fact that Live was not supported in South Africa. If this is true, and live is finally going to be available to the all of us, I doubt it’ll make any difference to my decision to slowly change over to PS3. That boat has sailed for me, but I will say, it’s a welcomed change from Microsoft, and I wish them well.

    Why would they call it Xbox live anywhere, and not just live anywhere, so to cater for windows , zune, windows mobile 7 and xbox all in one go. ?

    Yaaaay X-box live is coming to SA! These announcements are always great, although they are a bit late… April 1st has come and gone.
    Suppose it’s now June fools everyone.

    A good way from MS to fight piracy by launching Live everywhere.
