Blogging Boxes

I’m not entirely sure how to explain the 360voice service.  I mean, the technical explanation is simple: it automatically blogs your gameplay logs from your XBox 360.  It records what you’ve played, for how long, what you scored, when you’ve been playing, and so on, and adds in random creepy comments which are, unfortunately, a bit repetitive.

What I can’t really explain is why.  I’m all for people having access to their personal data that they’ve created in a game - but is there really an audience out there for the dead-simple statistics of your gameplay history, beyond marketers?  Would even your best friend care?

Please, my friends, enlighten me.

Otherwise I may need to wait until our 360 arrives and find out for myself . . . .
