MBC Game, the network that primarily shows reruns of Starcraft matches in Korea, has a program dedicated for Xbox gamers called 360 Live Attack. It starts out similar to a news program with two announcers talking about the latest Xbox 360 games. The episode I watched showed Lost Odyssey, which just arrived in Korea, and had some footage of Devil May Cry 4. However, the program doesn’t get its name from rolling interview footage with a member of the Korean Xbox division.

Once the news portion ended, the female announcer grabbed a controller and logged on to Xbox Live. Before playing a game she spoke to a fellow Xbox Live player through an Xbox Vision webcam chat. I doubt this portion was spontaneous. However, I pondered if the other two players playing Viva Pinata: Party Animals knew there game was going to be broadcasted throughout South Korea.

I was debating on blurring the Gamertags since they are personal information, but if they’re on TV I think it’s fair to post them unaltered. Just in case you want to show off your skills to Seoul look for the Gamertag hyodor81.

In this episode they were playing Viva Pinata: Party Animals. However, quickly glancing through hyodor81's Gamertag it looks like the show has access to Halo 3, Winning Eleven X, Gears of War and Virtua Fighter 5.
