Broadband Gaming


In the spring of 2003 both sony and microsoft will launch there online console gaming networks in the uk.

I think that this is very exciting with what i think is a relative low cost. If you already have a braodband connection it will only cost 40 pounds for a starter kit with headunit and 2 games with a whole years subscription to connect to the x-box network. The sony Pack will cost a bit more as the x-box is a bit more advanced machine.


With a msn like list you are able to find out when your friends are online so that you can challenge them to a game. So i would be able to play say pabster at smackdown 5. Or we may be able to set up our very own TWO pro evolution football league. As long as it's handled in the correct way it is a very exciting time for console gaming. Gone are the time in online gaming when somebody has an unfair advantage due to there pc specs. It's time for casual gamers to give it a go.

Seriously, the online gaming for the X-Box and PS2 is exciting. I didn't know it was going to be available in the UK that early.


I can't wait for the new CM4 for some online action on that too.

Well if you could get your hands on the equipment you can actully go live now.


But microsofts official date is march the 14th in the uk i think, already totally live in the us, if you buy x-box games now you will see that some of them say x-box live on them, as you may guess this means taht they have online utilities. I don't think that sony have actully given a date yet.


oh And Pabster I'm a class act on smackdown and i take some beating Boy!

Online Gaming sounds great. I can see it now...finally shutting Russ up about how great he is at Fire Pro...wait Fire Pro is GBA. Dang!


Anyhoo, maybe when everyone gets online we can set up some sort of gaming league at TWO. I dunno, might be a good idea for a pass-time.
