Accessory in Focus
This week's accessory in focus is the Xbox 360 Headset which is bundled with the Xbox 360 System package. The Xbox 360 Headset enhances the experience of
online gaming, community and Xbox Live, allows strategising with team mates or to just chat with friends while playing your favourite games. It is also
possible to record short voice messages for friends or family through the free Xbox Live Message Service or connect with others using the headset in the
place of a phone.
The microphone can be adjusted for optimal sound quality and the lightweight, over-the-head design enables comfortable use and the headset plugs directly into the Xbox 360 Wireless or Wired controller.

Xbox 360 Title in Focus
This week we will be looking at a title that looks great that is not from Microsoft Game Studios, the title: Gears of War.
The game Gears of War thrusts gamers deep into the harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde which is a
nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.
Players take on the role of Marcus Fenix who is a disgraced former war hero. Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against the onslaught of the Locust Horde.
The experience of playing Gears of War is so intensely emotional and immersive that playing will be like controlling a blockbuster action movie. Games can take cover using the interactive and dynamic environments and suppress the enemy with their weapons and team mates to outwit and outfight their terrifying enemies.
