Kinda.  I will be at VGExpo in Philly this weekend, enjoying myself and covering it for the Weiner and, to some extent, GamesLaw.net. If you’ll be there, sent me a tweet and we’ll get together!

 

Full of Patchy Goodness

Well, as promised, the New XBox Live Experience appeared this week. So far, so okay. The green blades are shiny and smooth, the avatars are like Miis all grown up and Netflix is working. Sorta.

 

The vaunted Netflix service has been up and down all day, with frequent patches. When it works, it works well, with instant streaming of lots of good stuff. The visual quality is pretty good for streaming video, much to my surprise.

 

The Marketplace is the real stumbling point at the moment. There is no easy way to get a complete list of what is on offer, and everything is incredibly slow at the moment. Microsoft is monitoring the situation and says it will be all better soon, and I really hope so.

 

Congratulations, Blizz!

Wrath of the Lich King sold 2.8 Million copies in the first 24 hours of its release. My gnome is 77, Araan is 79, and rumor has it that there will be a major content patch right after the new year.
