A new iPhone application entering the crowded marketplace allows all Xbox Live
addicts the ability to connect to their account and do pretty
much everything you can think of. Bad news: it isn't free. The $1.99 app, called 360 Live
, lets you sign into your account, browse and respond to friend requests, check messages and even creep your friend's Gamercard on the go.
But, before you slap your $2 on the table, we'd recommend you wait for Microsoft to respond to the app's list price. In August 2008, Microsoft mandated that all Xbox Live-related applications be free
. So, it may just be a matter of time before the 360 Live
app drops to the easy-to-swallow price of free.
