Sports fans who own an Xbox 360 should be quite happy to hear that Microsoft has signed a deal with ESPN to bring ESPN to the Xbox, giving you 3500 live sporting events, many of them in HD. To make things more fun, when watching a game, you can even pick a side, and you'll even be entertained (during those boring moments) with trivia questions that you can answer. This service is free for Gold members.
Aside from sports, you can also use Kinect to do live video chats with other Xbox users, as well as Windows Live Messenger on the PC. You're even able to watch a movie show "together" with your friend at the other end, enjoying the movie experience even if you're physically apart. Would this help sooth those long-distance relationship issues?
