Xbox Live in New Zealand- 2003

XBOX LIVE Goes live in North America, Canada and Europe AUCKLAND, New Zealand — November 29, 2002 - Xbox New Zealand are pleased to congratulate North America, Canada and Europe on a successful launch of Xbox Live. Hopefully it won't be too long before Kiwi gamers can share the experience that is online gaming. Our man on the ground Wilf Robinson updates us on the situation in New Zealand. "We are thrilled that Xbox Live has launched in North America and Canada and can confirm that we expect to launch in New Zealand during 2003," says Wilf Robinson. "While Xbox is broadband-ready, the critical issues that we face regarding the launch of Xbox Live in New Zealand relate to the need for broadband roll-out and penetration in this country, and of course the growth of the Xbox install base. "With online gaming well established as the way forward in the games industry, the excitement of the North American launch is understandable as Xbox Live is another major feature that sets Xbox apart from other gaming consoles and therefore has been as anticipated as the launch of Xbox itself." "Xbox Live enables gamers to find and play with their friends, play multiplayer Xbox games with other gamers virtually everywhere via a high-speed Internet connection, enable all gamers to talk to other players during game play through the Xbox Communicator headset as well as download current statistics, new levels and characters to their Xbox hard drive. " "As Xbox already had an online gaming experience through www.zone.com, Xbox and Microsoft understand security better than anyone. With this in mind, the Xbox Live platform will not only deliver the games but also a secure gaming platform...and all straight out of the box!"
