E3 2010: Xbox Live Gets ESPN
Hey, US sports fans! Microsoft has just announced that ESPN is coming 'exclusively' to the Xbox 360.

The announcement came at Microsoft's still-ongoing E3 press briefing, where ESPN's Josh Elliot and Trey Wingo were wheeled out to show off the service. The pair promised access to 3,500 live sporting events in year one ,"most of them in HD".

The service will be free to Gold subscribers, so long as their broadband provider supports ESPN3.

The service will, of course, be compatible with Kinect. It will also give users access to facts and figures from the ESPN website without having to leave the event they're watching.
