Microsoft unveiled it's new Xbox 360 on MTV last night, and the buzz just tremendous. Here's a description of an NBA game from the AP:
Another game Microsoft demonstrated that featured NBA star LeBron James had details of flexing muscles and a rippling tank top reflecting the light of a street lamp as he dribbled and shot.The Xbox 360 drops this thanksgiving. Several titles, including the Madden franchise, are expected to drop at the same time.
