World Cup comes to Live

Business security measures using SSL

If you thought you could escape World Cup fever by hiding away with your games console, think again - it's all kicking off on Xbox Live this month.

Microsoft has teamed up with Adidas and Konami to bring Xbox Live users "Summer of Football" - despite the name, a month of games and entertainment to celebrate the World Cup.

Xbox Live: Summer of Football

Missed your flight to SA? Xbox will console you

Users can download official kits, dress their avatars in country colours and add accessories like banners and hats. While these come at a price, this weekend from 11-13 June, all Live members will receive free Gold membership access, including multiplayer opportunities.

As well as promotions and discount on top footie titles, there is a penalty shootout application to test your skills against the rest of the online community, daily World Cup updates, interviews and gossip.

Football mad? Get on the ball, get in the Xbox and score! ®
