I do believe the voices of the Xbox were heard this week as a plentiful splash of happiness can be seen through discounted arcade as well as add-ons to extended enjoyable experiences with Gears of War 3 or Halo: Reach. Microsoft did well to provide for the client base this week, but how will they fair in the weeks to come?

Thanks everyone for tuning in again for another chapter of Xbox Live News with Pipper. Remember to due your part to join the Scuba Squad, and “Play Hard or Don’t Play At All!”
