Microsoft will be airing new 360 ads as of tomorrow designed to evangelise the machine’s non-gaming capabilities

“From October 2 we’re launching our own TV work explaining to consumers the broader entertainment offerings we have on Xbox 360, which is going to centre on our music offerings, movie offerings – and then obviously the unique TV experience we’ve got in connection with Sky, and the Sky service we’re bringing to Live,” northern Europe Xbox boss, Neil Thompson, told GI.

Sky features are expected to be patched into UK 360s this month.

Comedy actor Simon Pegg said yesterday that he’d recorded VO for HD streaming movie ads for 360.

    I hate the Americanisation of the date format.

    I got to preview some of these ads yesterday. My fav nongaming capibility of the xbox is the night light mode. You see you turn the system on, shut out the lights and the xbox will blink little red lights. Its very relaxing, really.

    Give us more A/V codecs like MKV and we’ll talk.

    @G1GAHURTZ, It’ll be okay man, I’m sure the Indians hated the Britishisation of their entire nation, but they came out just fine in the end.
