More of Europe to get Xbox Live

Including Rob's countrymen.

Having launched Xbox Live in eight European countries on March 14th, Microsoft is now preparing to roll it out in another six. Before the end of the calendar year (as opposed to the financial one), gamers in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway and Switzerland will be able to beat Kristan at any game he's playing, which should include the likes of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Brute Force, Midtown Madness 3 and Midnight Club II - all of which will be Living it up by the end of June. We don't have any specific dates or beta details, unfortunately, but if we find anything we'll let you know.
