This really doesn't have to do with the Xbox but rather with a commercial for the Xbox.

The Visual Effects Society awards were given out with The Two Towers taking 8 awards for visual fx and other technical fx related awards.

One of the categories happened to be for visual effects in a commercial. Guess who took home the award? The Xbox "Mosquito" ad. It is a shame that it didn't play here in the States.

Full Story. (http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=638&ncid=762&e=4&u=/nm/20030221/en_nm/film_effects_dc)

Watch the ad which played in the UK. 3megs 1m31s (http://www.cyben.org/kooky_videos/mosquito_uk.wmv)

Yeah it never aired in the US. It was part of their "Play More" campaign used in Europe.
