Xbox 360 at my lan party

I go to a college in calumet city, illinois. They hold lan parties every so often.....about once every 2 months or so. Well they're going to have another lan party in july and they posted flyers around the school like usual. Well the thing that caught my eye is that it says that they're going to have an xbox 360 at the lan party for demo. It's not a fake flyer either because I know some of the administrators at my college and they said those are real flyers that the school (not a student) made. I'm wondering if it's even possible. They have a picture of the xbox 360 on the flyer and everything. Who knows. What do you guys think?
BTW they've posted stuff before at my college for lan parties and have kept their promises with what they've said before.

first of all i think this should be in the microsuck section lol,
to me it sounds like they got confused these administrators that theres a xbox, and than a xbox360... lol theory 1.
i doubt they would have a demo box from microstink so early.. unless the college your at is rich that is; aside from that you never said which college you were at.

I got to westwood college of technology. The only reason why I'm interested in them bringing the xbox 360 is to see how bad it is before others get to.

You know, if you going into something wanting to hate it, you're probably still going to hate it either way.

Isn't Westwood College those things that's advertised on like Montell Williams for supposed lessons in game design? Well either way, I wouldn't put too much stock into actually seeing a complete x360, let alone any playible games. A lot of people end up making empty promises with such things quite often around the opening few months of a new console release.

They're confused. WTF would they have to show on the system in july? None of the games are complete, and I doubt microsoft would decide to show off their playable demos for the first time at some college.

The thing that could go wrong is that microsoft will decide not to bring the 360 to the lan party because like i've said my college has kept promises about things at their lan parties. Either way I wouldn't be too excited about it. If they do bring it then they'll probably only have some demos for it. I am going to the lan party that they're going to have, but only to play the multiplayer games for the pc. Some people be having some pretty good pcs there. But anyways I'll see what happens at that lan party. The lan party is going to be on july 22, so I'll be sure to go to that.

Well let me put it this way and then I'll let it rest until the 22nd.

M$ has an even planned in Japan at the end of the month.
Square has an even planned at the end of the month.
M$ has ANOTHER event in Europe planned for Late August/Early September.

Why would M$ start revealing plans at what appears to be a small branch of westwood college?

If MIT ain't gettin' a 360 early, I HIGHLY doubt Westwood College would get one.

Small brach? I wouldn't say it is small, in fact it's relatively big. I would know seeing as I attend school there, but I'm sure of what my school says, even when they showed a fairly big playable demo of gta:sa, so i'm somewhat confident in what they're telling me.

gta:sa was pirated in russia on the xbox a week before release so its not a big deal at all, i dont even know how fast the china guys did it lol, and a demo aint much at all to a full product.
other than that westwood college blows! go el camino college!

nano u just sound jealous, more like u dont want him to see the 360 before u do

anyway, i dont doubt that they might have it, westwood is a big college around the nation, what better way to promote their new system than to have it at colleges, and seein how its a college for game design it isnt TOO unlicky that they would have an early xbxo360
