They said it would work with any BREW compatible phone when they first announced it. I'm guessing it will be a downloadable app just like all the other stuff available on (for example) Verizon's Get It Now service.

Thread: Xbox360 Future Features of '07
Well in croatia...they will not serve you when you have a gun...I saw it on the door at mcdonalds....in zagreb at least they are not so backwards as many would believe...its actaully a pretty modern city
If you dont bealive me look here: http://www.t-mobile.hr/1/10-20-35-00-00.asp --- that is my operater, and service wich I using..but its not only one, there is much more..
And i repeat, that is in my poor country with 4million peoples.
Look here, we are top1 in world
But i repeat, it is poor country, we have sallary (for 1month) 3000kn and Playstation3 is 10000kn - nobody will buy that expensive toy. XBox360 is 4500kn now.
wtf, i just realized that this topic hasnt anything with my country ha ha
Lets back to topic.
If anything, this is watering the 360 brand down. So it looks like most 360 games will get pushed by MS to be released on Vista as well? Because if all i can do on Vista is customize, I'm not going to do it. Isn't that where the 360 is supposed to come in? Or can't it do it? It'd be really pointless to push some features on Vista if you should be able to do it on the 360. And do i want to customize some cars on a cell phone? Or do I want to do it on my 360 with a big screen and actually test it out?
This makes little sense to me. Have totally gimped features on your cell phone, and the same features on Vista as on the 360. Why use Vista for this stuff? Or if you have Vista and a good PC, I'm no longer at all interested in the 360 if it's doing the same thing.
Having your media accessible from your 360 to your cell makes way more sense. I like the idea of having the friends list on a cell, but to do what? So you see your friends list and that they are playing Halo 3. Can you do anything worth while on your cell? I think this Live Anywhere is going to die a painful death. I highly doubt developers are going to spend extra time creating extensions of their games for cell phones and Vista as well. But we'll see.
You have no idea what you are talking about...they showed that you can customize a skin for your car in foraz then transfer it to your cell phone and then take it to your friends house for instance. See the thing is at least you know Microsoft will support this and do must of the work so the devs just have to utilize.
Their are tons of Windows Mobile phones, but they are expensive... and worth it.
Live Anywhere will be amazing.
I have an XBOX 360, XBOX LIVE, Windows Mobile Phone (Motorola Q), and a Windows Vista RC2 and will be getting a copy of Vista Ultimate when it comes out on Jan. 19th!"There is no console war, just kids without enough money"

So you're saying this is cool because you can edit the car on your 360, transfer it to a phone, and then put it on your friends 360? And this is better than transfering it with a memory card because they decided to use a cell phone instead?
I thought you could edit it on your cell, which is a lot more interesting that what you're talking about. Why not just have an attachment option in games where you can send it to your friend? Makes way more sense to me.
As for a cool idea for a cell phone, I'd love to see 360 games like a Splintercell kind of game where an agent reaches you through your cell phone. You could have it so it's just a program running, and not an actual call, but that would be totally rad hearing instructions about some plot through your cell.
The Live Anywhere idea for Forza 2 is that you can use your PC to create the textures for your car (using a tool like Photoshop, for example) and transfer it to your 360 to use in game.
The cell phone stuff is pretty gimmicky--it's mostly there so you can check your friends list or queue up downloads remotely.
being able to add stuff to your game was a big selling point to the ps3 at e3, so far they haven't shown anything to do it with, with this the 360 has actaully shown something that will work. This can only be a good thing for those that want it.
And I fail to see how using a mobile device to consolidate the number of devices or things you have to manage is dumb and stupid. Maybe the implementation in Croatia is dumb and stupid, but the implementation in Japan is absolute ****ing brilliance.

I think some of you guys need to watch that video again."We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

Live Anywhere is promising, more than some here wish
You get what you pay for, sure free online is great fellas, but that's all you get free online multiplayer, because I've seen more than just that I want more than just that because for me Live is affordable and worth it, everyone has an opinion but everyones opinions are not gospel, mine included, the PS3's free online is not the factor which has me wanting it.Gaming on all platforms right now.

Some of you care to much, you keep on posting on XBOX360 threads. Stop bashing and jump in already, you know you want to.Funny sig animations, but unfortunately, they're too large (the maximum allowed size is 35KB for sig pics combined). - The_One
Hell we can go to work, make friends, have relationships and even get married on our cell phones soon...and only then will be a complete society.
