Inside Xbox FINALLY Arrives down under !!

Xbox 360

It took Microsoft long enough, but it’s FINALLY HERE !!   If you have an Australian or New Zealand Xbox LIVE account.  About 5 mins ago Microsoft Launched Inside Xbox to Australia and New Zealand customers !! Woo Hoo, we’re slowly catching up with the rest of the world 😉

If you’re not familiar with what Inside Xbox is here a little rundown :

Inside Xbox is a free daily digital magazine service for all Xbox LIVE members. Available exclusively on your Xbox 360, it’s a mine of information on the best new games, hot Marketplace content, special events, unique offers and competitions.

Microsoft have advised the following :

Every day we add a new entry, so there’s always something new for you to check out–whether it’s an achievement guide for Mass Effect 2 or instructions for changing your auto-sign-in settings. Can’t make it to E3 or the Tokyo Game Show? We’ll cover all those events on Inside Xbox so you don’t miss a thing.

Using Inside Xbox is very simple.  If you’re signed into Xbox LIVE on your Xbox 360, all you have to do is browse to the ‘Inside Xbox’ channel. From there, just use your Xbox 360 controller to browse through the stories and press the A button to follow links to video features and Marketplace content.

Simple as that.  Thank you Microsoft for throwing a bit of love down under. 

Play Hard Or Don't Play At All!


  1. OMG i cant believe it took them so long to give you Inside XBOX in the uk weve had it here yrs i dont even remember how long ago. I wonder if you will have personal interviewers, in the UK we have these 2 crazy hippish guys they try to be like MajorNelson

  2. Speaking of Major Nelson, when I saw your announcement, I couldn’t help wondering who’s the Aussie equivalent. Or, do y’all get lumped in with the rest of the PAL region (ie. UK’s AceyBongos).

  3. There isn’t one for Australia. But if they every start looking i’ll gladly put my hand up for the job 😉

  4. congrats… i honestly dont use it that much… because the way they buffer it is retarded… so im stuck watching 10 seconds, waiting 10 seconds, watching 10 seconds, waiting 20 seconds… real lame to watch videos like that

  5. Bout bloody time. Now all we need is 1 vs 100 and we get just about the same as the US does. Considering we pay more for Gold than the US do, I don’t see what the problem is.
    Oh, I have a job interview at MS today.. some sort of Community Manager role or something like that. I will try and convey my thoughts and feelings in the interview. Hi!

  6. Yes thats is very true Duraroc. The amount of money us Aussies have to pay for XBOX GOLD account is not normal. We always get the short end of the stick.

    Well good luck with the Community Manager job interview if u get it maybe u convey your thoughts and hopefully all of Australia will be able to play 1v100 soon. Just one thing .. could I be the Australian host of 1v100 ???

    Thanks 😉

  7. Oh, I didn’t realize you guys were missing out on 1v100, too. I rarely use Inside Xbox channel, but I would sorely miss 1v100. Maybe they’ll do right by you for the show’s next season.

    And, yeah Major Nelson’s got a pretty awesome job. I’d imagine there would be many a hand up for that gig.

    Speaking of jobs, hope you did well on your interview, DuraRoc. 🙂
