    After getting a fast start out of the gate it seems that the XBL is kind of stumbling now. There just isn't as many games out now as I was hoping for.

    Brute Force, Halo 2. 2004 will be the year that Live takes off. It is still in its infancy.

    My hopes are high for Return to Castle Wolfenstein this week. After the Clone Wars disappointment, I'm really looking for another quality Live game.

    yeah, we have seen this topic come up quite often lately. Microsoft didn't deliver what was promised. Since launch, there is one exclusive game(and moto gp) worth playing on it, that is not excusable. Then again what has Sony offered? I guess though for Microsoft to ever expect online to take off seriously, they need to start offer more than the normal company.

    Plus, there's supposed to be a whole bunch of upgrades coming to the service also. Anyone with the newest (Halo 2) issue of OXM may want to confirm this news as I'm stealing it from another forum...

    Now, I'm a newbie to XBL (I've only had it for about 2-3 weeks) but so far I like it and enjoy playing Mechassault, MotoGP, and Unreal with other people. I've hosted many of games on Live and enjoyed everyone of them. My only real dissapointment with Live is the lack of games for it but I think RTCW may change this. The ability to upgrade games by content download is great and is a great way to revitalize old games (looking foward to CTF on Mechassault). All in all I'm pretty happy with my XBL purchase and agree with many others in this post about being patient. The service is just in its infancy and some killer live games will be coming soon.

    I'm not digging Live. There just aren't any games that really appeal to me. I may try Wolfenstein but I want a NEW good exclusive non sports live game that isn't a port of a PC title. I hear Deathrow is cool so I may try that. In reality though, I've only got 3 XBox games and I'm struggling to find XBox games that I'm interested in whether they be Live or not.

    Wow. Those Live enhancements aren't exactly knocking my socks off. Move music to my Xbox? Already can. Move photos -- what's the point? Chat with friends out of game -- isn't that what IM is for?

    I'm already a subscriber, and likely will renew just to play Halo 2. But those new features wouldn't entice me to join, and Sony has got a virtual boatload of promising online games coming up -- including several from third-party developers who theoretically COULD also support Xbox Live, but aren't (and not just EA.)

    Microsoft better get another head of steam up fast. . .

    Actually those enhancements sound pretty cool given I don't have to buy any new equipment. I especially like the idea of chatting outside of games. As for Sony, I was sorta interested in Modelista but I rented it and it really sucks. Probably only game I'll get online for it is SOCOM 2, nothing else they have coming out has grabbed my attention from what I've seen and read. Hopefully it won't be as bug ridden as the first version, walking into walls, having 56Kers hack their way into it and ruin games, and server overloads. On the other hand, Amped 2, PGR2, Halo 2, and that air combat game that seems to have Live again all look great, will pick'em all up probably.

    I guess im in the other boat. So many games i want to get not enough time. Lately thoughs stuff i was looking forward too hasnt been that great. But with wolfenstein coming, the two online car games,GR:Island Thunder and everything else later this year im happy with live. I play Mech and PSO pretty much all the time with ghost recon here and there.
