Microsoft has announced Election 2012 on Xbox Live, a hub that will allow players to watch debates and interact with polls, news, analysis and more. NBCNews.com will provide daily coverage that will be accessible from the hub beginning on August 27th with news related to the upcoming Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
Xbox Live will also offer live feeds of both conventions, as well as offering fans the chance to interact with three presidential debates “by responding to poll questions throughout live programming of the debates and other unique election events hosted on Xbox Live throughout the campaign season.”
“We want to provide our passionate Xbox Live community with a great way to experience the election process with TV that makes them participants – and not just viewers,” said Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business corporate vice president Marc Whitten. “This is a great example of how our Xbox capabilities are making the promise of interactive television a reality.”
