Xbox/Xbox Games
Microsoft is gearing up for Xbox360's launch, which will hopefully have a number of good launch titles (as well as a hopeful boost from existing Xbox titles): they've just shipped the beta kits to developers.

Prior to E3, developers reported that a very small number of these more advanced kits had been manufactured, but it's only in recent weeks that they have begun shipping to Microsoft's development partners on a wide scale.

Microsoft received some criticism after E3 for showcasing its titles on hardware which, it claimed, only represented 25 to 30 per cent of the power of the final Xbox 360 - while Sony had more advanced development kits for the PS3, despite being at least six months further from launch.
