Xbox Live Interviews

Two new interviews have popped up on the net regarding Microsoft’s upcoming pay-per-Play online gaming service, Xbox Live. GamespyDaily spoke with Microsoft Xbox product manager David Huffordabout the online service and a brief intro to the Controller S. Here’s a sneak peek:
GameSpy: Will gamers have to pay to use the Xbox Live service or will it be free? David: First, Xbox Live is a subscription service that allows all the service features to work across all Xbox Live games. Our approach is night and day from Sony’s. It’s a universe full of game communities playing sports, racing, action, RPG games, all under one roof. There will be one password to access all Xbox Live games so sticky notes don’t pile up in the living room. There will be one customer service number to call with any issues. With Xbox Live, gamers don’t have to spend upwards of $100 for an Ethernet adaptor or a hard drive to download new games. Instead, with Xbox, they get a great experience right out of the box. You’ll need a compass and map to get around Sony’s world. If you’re playing a game from third party publisher X, you have to go to their server farm and sign up with their service. As we understand it, to get to another game from another publisher, you’ll have to exit the world you’re in and go to their servers and duplicate the process again. Nothing appears to be interoperable in the PS2 world. Nothing sounds simple. It’s every man for himself and best of luck to you. They said it themselves..."whatever happens, happens."
Next up, Serenity from Teamxbox (where’s the link love??) spoke with Hufford also and basically covered the basic topics as the GamespyDaily interview with a few bonus topics. My question of course would be why neither of these interviews asked questions regarding sales of Xbox in Japan and Europe and how it’s going to affect the service there and the truth to the documents leaked from the developers kit that contained Microsoft’s plans and info on the service.
