ESPN hits Xbox Live with Kinect support
Microsoft have signed an exclusive deal with ESPN to bring major sporting coverage to Xbox 360 users, via Xbox Live.
American Football, NBA basketball, MLB baseball, soccer and other major events will be a part of over 3,500 events available on Live - in high-definition.
Community features will be mixed in as part of the ESPN service, and Kinect-inspired voice controls will be fully supported, fans also able to chat live during events.
The service will pull in live sporting information from ESPN.com, without any interruptions to the match on-screen, we're told. All this will be free to Gold Live subscribers.
