On the phone I had the pleasure of interviewing the Xbox Live Director of Programming from Microsoft. You will know him better as Major Nelson, but his actual name is Larry Hryb who is celebrating more than 200 podcasts on his website over at www.majornelson.com.
This recorded audio interview is featured in the latest issue of the free online magazine 360Zine on page 29. 360Zine is an online downloadable magazine that launched with its first issue in November 2006. The magazine is completely free and even includes video segments within some of the articles. 360Zine is available in *.pdf format so make sure you have the Adobe Reader software installed.
Larry gave up some of his valuable time to explain the features of Xbox Live, how it has evolved on the Xbox 360 and how it compares to the competition. You can listen to a very short sample of the interview below, but I recommend you go and download issue 3 of 360Zine to hear the full audio.
