Xbox Spears relationship

Pop queen really does blame Xbox for her woes

Last week Microsoft issued a press release commenting on the European Xbox launch, although we are still waiting for the company to boast about its official sales figures. But this morning we learnt that in a recent interview, Britney Spears did indeed comment on her boyfriend Justin Timberlake's new-found addiction to Xbox, explaining that "The whole time we're together, all he does is play on it. I feel he loves that thing more than me." Reluctant though we are to perpetuate the myth of an Xbox PR with basis in fact, it does seem we were a little harsh to dismiss it completely last week. That said; two things do occur to this writer as he sits, tapping away nonchalantly this Monday morning. Firstly, who honestly cares? And moreover, if it's watertight, why is it that this nugget of information - and the item about the word 'Xbox' entering our vocabularies - ripped out of the press release before it hit the newswires?
