Here's a thread where we can post where we have seen the xbox in the media. TV shows, movies, whatever.
A little exposure for our beloved X machine? You betcha.

For intance.. My wife and I are watching that show.. Coupling on NBC, and there was a gratuitious shot of a 2 player Halo game on Bloodgulch being played by 2 of the male lead characters.
It was a pretty cool shot, then there was some extended dialogue between the 2 guys holding the obvious xbox controllers.


So, when you spot the box, put it here.

ESPN's NFL Playmakers (I think that's the name) had one of the main characters fighting with his friends about playing his Xbox on the tv he is watching a video on. At first I thought they were talking about a PS2 until I saw the machine, controller, and one of the guys wearing an Xbox Live Headset. I smiled and turned the channel.

Grounded For life on WB has mentioned the Xbox in a few shows ,
Will and Grace also had Some Xbox Moments, also a few comercials that are not Xbox related had Xbox's in them, and I think a Friends episode had a Xbox in it last season , I have noticed it has more exposure this year ,

Yeah I saw that too. Cool Xbox advertising. Too bad the show absolutely sucked and will be canceled by Thanksgiving.

One time...on Frasier... lol

Actually, I really did see the Box on Frasier. His son was visiting him and he was playing. I think it was a couple of seasons ago when the Xbox was brand spanking new.

I remember like 2 years ago this Canadian rapper (Choclair, I know not much of a rapper) was playing Xbox at the beginning of his video. And it wasn't released yet, and I was like "Whoa! What system is that, that controller looks sweet!". That's the only one that comes to mind.

Okay okay okay...I saw an XBox plug on Trading Spaces family. Now, before you dudes make fun of me for watching that show, let it be known that I watched hours of ESPN before my wife made me turn the channel :D

Anyway, there was a kid that had an XBox there and they wanted to make sure that the room would be surrounded by video game playing and the such. Hell, the kid even got a new Sony Wega TV. Do I hear Component video? Nice... :D

Good call! I saw that, too...I forgot about that, though.

Also, I'm surprised no one mentioned that Discovery Channel special about the XBox. I think it could have been better, but, it was much better than a swift kick in your ass :D

Part 2 of the CSI season premier mentioned Xbox. There was a kid that was a witness to something and they said, "Are you gonna believe that kid over me? He's probably got Xbox of the brain"
