I stumbled into a room where everyone was speaking French. I think they were talking about how they lose all the wars they're ever in. Seriously though, I figured it was a bunch of Canadian French just hanging out in a room. Nope...French, French! Like as in Paris, oui-oui French. At least that's what the one guy who spoke pretty decent English was telling me. He said they just got their beta kits and that there was about 2000 of them, total, in France. They really seemed to be into it!!!!! What makes this a big deal, to me, was the phenomenal, no-lag performance we had. Here I am in the US of A, racing against a bunch of French beta testers on the other side of the planet, and it was on par with having a load of Xbox's all hooked up in the same room. Way to go Microsoft. I hate your operating system but damn, did you guys do a job on your Xbox/Live. On a final note, the French lost the race.
