Tell the whole world what you are doing - Xbox LIVE

Posted by: riiaan


I am new to Xbox Live. Only got it last week. Keep that info in the back of your mind when you read this.

I was playing Pac-man on my Xbox when I received a text message – “Dude you suck”. Puzzled, I strike back with this clever reply – “huh?” In return I got, “Pac-man is for losers”. Shit. Apparently other people can see what you are doing on your Xbox, I did not know that. If only I was doing something manly like watching porn or something, but I got caught red handed playing Pac-man. Damn that is embarrassing.


Turns out, Xbox live is even more intrusive than Facebook. You can fine tune your privacy settings but by default people can see everything. They can see what games you have been playing and they can actually see how you are faring with the game.

From now on only manly hard-core games like Gears of War and Batman for me! 

Gonna miss you Boom Boom Rockets!

@thenack: you add friends like you would on facebook. You can go onto your friends profile and see what they are currently busy doing, or what they were doing when the used the xbox last.

you can also see a list of games they have played and how well they did when they played the game.

I enjoy PacMan. Was very happy when I found a copy to play on my PC. Lost it again when my PC was stolen!

WTF...that's totally crap! And why the heck are you playing pac-man? I just lost all my Xbox respect for you!smilies/grin.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

And is wrong with the dude texting you telling you PacMan is for losers when he's watching what other people are doing...stalking is for losers, you loser!
