Microsoft Unleashes a 250GB 360, Comes Bundled With Kinect

Microsoft is taking the wraps off of their holiday Xbox 360 Kinect bundle.  Aside from the 250GB hard drive you’ll be getting with the system, you will also be getting the Kinect motion control device, and a copy of Kinect Adventures, all for $399.99 when it is released on November 4th.

What are your thoughts on the new bundle? will you be picking it up for the hard drive space?


Microsoft Bans Gamer for Living in “Fort Gay”

Microsoft has mistakenly suspended Josh Moore, a 26 year old gamer for putting in his bio that he lived in “Fort Gay” West Virginia, an area that’s population is just over 800 residents.  Moore had to call Microsoft and convince them that it is a real location and not a joke.

Chief enforcement manager, Stephen Toulouse apologized on the agents behalf who took care of Moore’s call, and now everything seems to be fine and dandy after Stephen revoked the account suspension.

This is really getting old Microsoft.  You could of saved this man some trouble with just a quick google search, or doing some research before you slammed down the ban hammer.
