Might have been posted already, but oh well.
There's going to be a really cool show on Halo 2 and Xbox :D if you're interested.

X Factor: Inside Microsoft's Xbox


Go behind the scenes as three teams race to create the next great American video game... and Microsoft battles to take over a $20 billion industry that's bigger than movies and records. Will Xbox be the next Windows? Stay tuned...

It's on 8pm and 11pm for both Eastern and Pacific. So when it's 11 in NY it's on, and when it's 11 in LA it's on..

Hey, Ceen...thanks for the info, but, yes, it has been covered. But, it's cool for you to remind us anyhow since it's on tonight!

By the way, welcome to XBA :cheers:

If you want it send me a PM. I'm recording it as we speak. Once it's done I'll try to trim out the commercials and send it out to you.
I've already had one other request for it.

I have a TV tuner card in my PC. I recorded it so I'll send it to anyone who wants it. One warning though. The sound quality sucks. Evidently the drivers I am using aren't all that great and I messed up and didn't think about checking it out before hand. So the sound is a bit static sounding :confused:

I watched it and there really wasn't that much info on Halo 2 :o And the Crimson Skies part was just plain :eek: Damn that game looks sooooo plain :mad: The Munch part was cool though, the graphics look much better than the original.

I enjoyed it, taped it and watched it when I got home from work. Very good show, just wish they had more of them.

I thought it was pretty interesting. It showed a good cross section of personalities and how they present their ideas. It was extremely obvious that the guy from OddWorld is a little on the egotistical side to the point of where it hurts his product. I also liked the fact that they had the stones to show the lead designer for Crimson Skies get the ax! The Crimson Skies team was clearly not working well together and it showed.

But the absolute best part was the group of testing geeks that came in for Crimson Skies. Those guys were awesome!
