Useful Xbox tricks for Mobile Users

In a recent twitter-quest, I asked everyone if there was anything like an Xbox Live program for my recently purchased Windows Mobile phone. I gained exactly zero responses. Little did I know that there was a little pot of Gold waiting to be discovered.

The other day I posted about some Halo 3 and Fable 2 wallappers and ringtones. Well, what if I told you there were more? Not only more, but for other games? Games like Gears of War 2, Too Human, and even Madden 09? What if I told you there were mobile games, exclusive to your cell phones? Ways to check and respond to your Xbox Live messages, all from the palm of your hand?

Well, there is. Bookmark the following, and you will be set!

Xbox.mobi – a completely mobile designed site, streamlined for phone browsers, offering all kinds of exclusive content from wall papers to sound effects.
Xbox.com/en-US/wap/ – Xbox.com (America)’s WAP site, which offers you access to much of Xbox.com’s contents, including your friends list and more.
Xbox Live Message center (again USA only link provided, though it may work for others). This link is not truly designed for mobile phones, however it takes you straight to your Xbox Live Inbox, and as long as your browser is powerful enough, you can read and compose new messages!

While I don’t plan on changing the content of the site to a new mobile phone fansite, I just wanted to offer a few helpful links to everyone. I also intend to check out the mobile phone browser SkyFire – I will let everyone know how useful it turns out being (worth it or not!?). Don’t forget to do your part to help spread the word about Xbox.mobi – here’s hoping it keeps growing, as Microsoft keeps their promise of LIVE EVERYWHERE!

Goozex offers Gift Cards for the Holiday Season


Game trading site Goozex, which I have talked about before, is launching Goozex Gift Cards, according to a report from Market Watch.

I was surprised to see that Market Watch would pick up on the article, but I think they are hoping to see Goozex go public and become the next competitors to Game Stop, Game Crazy, and the like. Personally, I hope that doesn’t EVER happen, because it won’t be long before they have to become just as big and corporate. But anyways, if you’re looking for a quaint little gift for someone you know, these Goozex Gift Cards sound like a good idea! 😉

Love Halo 3? Love Fable 2? Show it!


Just came across this in an email from Microsoft. Official Halo 3 and Fable 2 ringtones for your Windows Mobile Phone! Or… really, any phone that supports WMA ring tones. They can be previewed and downloaded. That is what I was linked to, but why not also provide you Windows Mobile users (or, again, any phone that supports .JPG files!!) with some new Fable 2 and Halo 3 background images for use on your cell phone.

That’s all for now, I’m sure there will be more news to come this week, I’m just having a great time at my new job, and even though I’m extremely busy, I’m loving every minute of it all. Look forward to hearing from me throughout the week! A few quick polls may also appear in the near future, as I determine what else to bring to WinBreak in 2009!
