Windows Live™ Spaces and Xbox® have teamed up to provide gamers with the ultimate online gaming and social networking service around X06, the Xbox brand experience for the games and entertainment industry.

The partnership will allow gamers all over Europe to experience Xbox Live™, the world’s premiere, fully connected gaming service, absolutely free for over a week, 20–29 Sept 2006. With more than 3 million members worldwide, Xbox Live allows gamers to play games, chat and listen to music with their friends, and download exclusive content.

But the game does not end there. Gamers can create unique Xbox-themed Windows Live Spaces on the web at to show off their profile, build a reputation and check out opponents using specially developed Windows Live gadgets, which display their Xbox Live gamer card and details of their recent games.

Beyond sharing their gaming alter egos, gamers can also use a weblog to share stories, hints and tips, or even photos and favourite gaming soundtrack lists with friends and family — or meet new friends and form a gaming clan to compete on Xbox Live. A great example of how to share Xbox experiences through Windows Live Spaces can be found at
