Default Microsoft presents the Xbox2 and live at GDC, hear the show.

Well just found this 1 hour mp3 of the GDC 2005 where MS talks about the Xbox2 and live features.
Listen to the last 4 mins....Samsung and MS gives away a 1000 HDTVs for folks with yellow access cards.

Haven't listened to the presentation yet, but it sounds fairly interesting. I'm not surprised UE3 is going to be the main development platform they're using for next-generation games, at least the first batch of them. Although that "micro-transaction" thing sounds really, really stupid, it's bad enough with some current "premium" content. Nice to get confirmation that the console will be built around high-resolution HDTV support though, being stuck with low-res graphics is one of the complaints PC gamers have had about consoles for a while now (although there are some current console games that have high-res HDTV support, they're quite rare).

They should stop beating around the bush and tell us the bloody specs
