Xbox 360 owners may have noticed the arrival last week of a new dashboard channel for Events. In addition to highlighting game launches – see Halo Wars above – it also acts as a call-out to Aussie gamers to jump online for a series of Community Playdates. We’ll be organising one of these playdates and want to hear your suggestions for what game to play.
The idea behind Community Playdates is to provide a focal point for Aussie gamers. If we’re all getting online for the same game at the same time, then it should alleviate the lag issues that we so often experience when joining games hosted overseas. The theory follows that it’s also a good way to meet local gamers and add them to your friends list.
We’ll be getting in on the act soon. But we want to know what game you’d all like to play. Leave your suggestions in the comments below and stay tuned for the first Kotaku Community Playdate in the coming weeks.
