A few months back Xbox 360 was launched in India. Thanks to Microsoft, India can now be officially considered as a gaming zone too. With Microsoft introducing their console in a place like India, chances are that Sony and Nintendo might follow soon. In August i had made a blog post offering some exclusive details about xbox360 that would help my fellow indians. This was a big success with the blog post alone having more than 10,000 hits and still. A few members including me tried helping people but we still needed a better place. Xbox India forums became this place but soon it just became a drab place with too many rules and injustice.

Today it gives me a great honour to introduce to a website which is run by the Indian gamers and primary aims at Xbox 360. This is the forum where xbox360 owners (Indians) discuss their problems, guides, gaming strategies and other things. The forum is barely 1 month old and already boasts of more than 150 members having more than 2700 posts. While the name of the website might make you feel that its only about xbox360 but you are free to discuss about anything including PS3, Wii and yes!! you can also bitch about Microsoft India ;). 

I highly recommend this website.

A box

Today when i came back from edu, i saw a small box was lying on my bed. Clearly it was delivered by a courier guy. Now usually whenever i get couriers, i get pretty excited especially when i dont know about it in advance. The box was brown in color and indicated that it had come from Microsoft. I got a bit excited thinking that it had come from Microsoft USA bringing me some goodies either from the Windows Vista Team or from some other beta 😉 🙂 . So at once i took out my victorinox and started ripping the box.It was quite painful but i love opening such stuffs 🙂 . The below image will show what was there inside the box. I love freebies but then who doesnt ? 😛

Now dont be fooled by the box like i was. So yea! i basically got Viva Pinata and Gears of War for free from my Microsoft friend 🙂 Now i have two copies of Gears of War. What i will be doing with the second copy of GoW is upto me 🙂

Emergence Day in India

WoW,

its finally here… Yes i am talking about the Emergence Day. For those of you who have still not caught on about what i am talking about, i am talking about Gears of War. Yes!!! It has finally launched in India.

I am gonna pick my copy tomorrow and will enjoy this game. Now i just wish i had a nice LCD TV 😉

I would like to point out that the game launched just after 2 days before it had a UK launch. So we can see that Microsoft India is really working very hard for the indian gamers.

Gears of War leaked

Since i was away for so many days, my sources have today informed me that Xbox 360’s most awaited title “Gears of War” has leaked.

It leaked 6 days back by a group called “ProjectX” .

Review :- Xbox 360 India Forums

Today is 16th October 2006 and Xbox 360 was launched in India on 23rd September 2006. After coming back from the launch party which took place in Delhi i decided to slow down a bit on Xbox 360 on my blog, because i really didnt know what to post about it. I mean i gave all the important  information about the Xbox 360’s India launch almost a month before it was launched in India. I also covered the entire event with a few videos and pictures. So One day i came across Xbox 360 India forums, these forums are basically official forums run by Microsoft and are headed by MVP’s and not “Microsoft employees“. So i started to participate in them on and off, sharing my experiences with the console, helping others in the best way i could. Now Apparently the launch of Xbox 360 didnt go very smoothly as everyone thought it would. They pulled a great party but didnt do well in the market. One of their biggest problems was “Games”. Due to some reason they havent been able to deliver the games to the consumers as some of you might be familiar,

so anyways back to Xbox 360 forums,

so it seems a few people like “Ashish4life” and a few others have made a major issue about it. Now and then they are always going about emailing Mr Mohit Anand about the games and in reply Mr Mohit responds that games will be coming soon and in one instance he even replied back saying that the games have started coming . So now and then people are ranting and complaining, calling and emailing Mr Mohit with such petty issues. Such people are just spoiling the name of India on these international forums. I will be honest but i have always gone forward with supporting Microsoft on the forums. One instance it was seen that some idiot also asked for Peter Moore’s email address so that he could take up the games issues. [ Peter Moore’s email address  @ Gamespot ] . Such kind of things make me sad as it really blows India’s reputation. I maybe Australian but i am an indian too. Its a real sad situation over there, they treat Mohit Anand as if he’s in some ordinary man..lol .

So I will rate the forums as 1/10 , seriously its not worth going over there at all. Its just waste of time seeing people saying that they will sue Microsoft because they are not releasing games. Oh btw there are people like “Alive4” who run some kind of website about xbox 360 who basically rip information from other places and then dont even source them and then they try getting traffic to thier place by posting information on the forums which is totally bullshit. These are just one or two instances that i am pointing out, there are loads..

I am under “lastavenger” over there…
