"E3 2010 may have made history," jokes Microsoft's Xbox Live newsletter. What's that? They were being serious, ha ha... Oh wait, you're being serious. Oh... Well... They can't have been watching the same E3 as me! Sorry, where was I? Ah yes, Xbox Live newsletter... Well that can only mean one thing, right? It's time to lift the lid on the next few weeks of Xbox Live content.
