"New" OXM?

So what do you think is going to happen with OXM? Will it get a name change? Will there be 360 demo's? Should I renew?.........????

I know they changed the logo a bit. I also believe there are 360 demos. I am not renewing my subscription.

They changed pretty much the entire format with the most recent issue. Same Xbox cheerleading but now just for the 360. It appears the Xbox is quickly becoming a dead system to them now that the 360 has come out. They have an article even stating that Microsoft has all but confirmed that there will be no software for the Xbox after Winter 2006.

I would not renew but my free sub doesn't run out until December 2006.

They state in the new issue that they will have demos for the 360 in the next issue I believe. Most of it appeared pretty useless if you plan on keeping your Xbox and waiting on a 360.

The last issue was a major disappointment so I don't have real high hope for this new look and it's new content. On the other hand I'll take any 360 demo they feel like putting on that disc.

I have some time to decide if I want to renew but most likely I will.

Yeah, the newest OXM just seemed a mess. I know they put a small logo on reviews/previews that said for original XBOX. Not really that well defined...I didn't realize it. I think they should put the 360 logo and the XBOX logo on appropriate articles.

Anyways, still ok if they start including 360 demos on the disc.

I wonder if the demos on the OXM discs will be available via Xbox Live Marketplace?

I would assume most demos will be. You can already D/L NBA Live 06 demo and Kameo demo over Marketplace. They just take a while and the disc would be less of a hassle.
