  • No connection here but Microsoft stock crosses $ 31 mark!
  • Amen brother
  • I am glad to found such useful post. I really increased my knowledge after read your post which will be beneficial for me Car Games.
  • Good for MS
  • Jay, get a windsock for your microphone.
  • Very interesting subject, appreciate it for putting up Dora Games.
  • It's good to hear about progress on Sonic's Jewels, or rather Blue Tomato.  But does anyone know if Blue Tomato hits the marketplace, will it update/overwrite Sonic's Jewels, or will it be a new app to download?
    Edit: Nevermind, got the update already.
  • I know this gets asked a lot but what is happening with old Xbox live games. Are they getting fast app switching added? I know I saw a demo with angry birds doing this yet still I have to reload every time I want to read a text etc. And it isn't quick in starting up so its a bit of a pain.
