Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 28, 2005
TeamcompeteTM today announced that they are supporting leagues and team challenge play for the new Xbox360 game titles launching for Microsoft?s new generation console gaming system the Xbox360. Teamcompete.com was launched in 2003 to support the original Xbox and has now added support for the next generation console — the Xbox360.
?We deliberately architected our system to support multiple consoles with the Xbox360 becoming the second console supported along side the original Xbox?, said the Veeg, Teamcompete founder. With the launch of several games specific to the Xbox360 platform and other games promised to be backwards compatible, it will be important at some time to be able to differentiate play in the ?old? and the ?new? Xbox consoles. Teamcompete is ready with that capability today.
Once additional specifics of the Xbox360 are announced and known to the gaming public, Teamcompete promises a closer integration with the games and the console as they were able to do with the original Xbox. ?We?re the only site that is focused exclusively on Xbox and Xbox360 competitive online team play?, said the Veeg. ?We are looking to gradually add Playstation and other consoles but for now or focus remains squarely on the Microsoft family of consoles. We have always innovated gaming and competitive improvements for the Xbox and will be looking to do the same with the Xbox360 in the coming months.?
Teamcompete is a member supported community of Xbox Live gamers playing in Amateur, Sports and Professional levels of league play. Individual membership is on an annual basis and runs from $ 15-$ 40 depending on the product bundle selected.
