As both myself and a friend work at Target, and neither of us have seen any boxes containing any Xbox Live kits. Go try and bull**** somewhere else troll.

MotoGP and Whacked online demos are actually really fun and come with the kit. I got an online Fever demo disc but that hasn't even gone into my box. You gots to hook up with some nfl2k3 so myself and the rest of the general population can whoop on yer ass.

Hell...I'm surprised it lasted this long! Enjoy the 'newer' one when you snag it (One box is enough for me right now);)

From what I've heard from other boards is that you still can't play the demo versions of Whacked and MotoGP with beta testers...not until the 15th. This is coming from people that tried and failed, not myself personally.

Since they're sending the beta testers out a second version of Live (retail version), I wouldn't doubt this at all!

Yes...kits are showing up in the stores.

No...You cannot play them until Xbox LIVE launches officially on November 15.

Beta Testers began receiving the retail disks today....They will be totally set up by next Tuesday for launch.

I am scheduled to receive my disk on Monday.

The only games the work with the Live Kits now(ones in stores) is Sega Sports games...

Yeah I wasn't sure if they had a strict street date for the kit or not. It is a $100,000 fine if you break the street date on a copy of Windows and they ARE strict on that. When win98 got released a compUSA I worked at got fined, and the manager that sold it got canned. Ooops

Yes, I worked in a cd manufacturing facilty for 6 years and a Distributon Center for 4 years. And release dates were a strict must follow! EB and Babbages were on the phone with me 24 hours a day it seemed making sure one's shipment didnt go out before the other. They were a pain in my ass!

November 15th is the launch of XBox Live. By purchasing broadband kit early, they are only good for looking at. They won't work until the 15th.

Personally, I'm more stoked for Unreal Championship arriving in stores on Nov 13th!!

Retail Version Of XBL:

Retail Demo Version of MotoGP/Whacked - DOES NOT WORK (Will work on 11/14)
Retail (Full) version of Whacked - Works NOW
Retail (Full) Version of NBA 2k3 - Works NOW

How will it back fire, granted some peeps might think that the Live service doesn't work, because the demos don't work, but NFL 2k3 does work with my retail kit.... I've heard that MS called Target and they(target) pulled XBL from the shelves....I got lucky:D

HA! Gotta love rushing to a store for a video game while listening to a video game soundtrack in the car to "prep you up" for the hot new item.

:sigh: the memories :cool:
