I'd still like to know if they plan on introducing a work-around for those of us in the UK with built-in-Freeview to enjoy the TV switching feature (no HDMI Out on the TV means you can't use the HDMI pass-through in the same way as people with external digi-boxes). The Xbox will be in my bedroom so I won't have access to the Sky box, but I was really looking forward to snapping, switching, etc.
I'm not one to 'hate on' Microsoft, but at times it does seem like they focus a little too much on good ol' US of A.
Yea, I'd agree with that, and I'm writing from the good ol' US of A. If you're in North America, and are a cable customer subscribed to one of a handful of cable companies, you're set. But that's a small percentage of loyal Xbox users. I sincerely hope that these much-touted features eventually (quickly) manifest in the UK and beyond. At the moment, though, the system definitely reeks of some sort of wire-and-plastic patriotism.
