As it turns out, Hollywood's star-studded Xbox 360 kick-off party was more than just an opportunity for a couple of meaningless B-list celebs to announce their even more meaningless engagement. It was an opportunity for hardcore gaming addict Paris Hilton to snag a new 360. OK, maybe subtract the "gaming" part from that sentence.
So what will Paris the Heiress do with her new toy? I'm sure she's aware of the 360's ability to stream all of her favorite [home] movies and phone cam pics from her Media Center PC to her 50" HDTV. And judging by the white box in that bag, she's also the proud new owner of one long and lean detachable 360 hard drive (whoa, Nelly!).
The irony of handing out 360s to self-promoting socialites
(who in all likelihood will never even open the box) in the wake of an impending launch shortage is not lost on Xbox-scene. Amen, brother.
