Halo 2 is a sci-fi FPS game that continues the story of the Master Chief, a genetically enhanced super soldier who is the only man who has successfully defied the Covenant, a coalition of alien races on a murderous march toward Earth.

"This will be a great way to meet all the loyal INXS fans out there," said new vocalist J.D. Fortune. "It's been a wild ride thus far, but we can't wait to take break from our world tour and get on Xbox Live to challenge our fans from all over the world. They better come ready though, because I'm gunning for them!"

The Xbox Live "Game with Fame" program gives Xbox Live subscribers the unique opportunity to meet, chat and play against some of today's hottest stars. Past "Game with Fame" celebrity players include Ludacris, The Strokes, Hoobastank, Staind, Incubus and Simple Plan.

"SWITCH" is a fitting title for the new INXS album. After all, the band's 11th studio disc arrived on a new label, recorded by a new producer and features, most important of all, a new lead singer. What hasn't changed is the band's knack for writing classic songs that mix modern rock and dance styles. Their hit single "PRETTY VEGAS" made its debut on both the Billboard Top 40 Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100. There sound has made them one of the most popular bands on the planet, as proven by more than 30 million albums sold worldwide, 18 Billboard hits, 23 UK hits, 34 Australian hits and 6 consecutive top ten UK and US albums. INXS will launch their sold-out Switched On tour in Vancouver on January 18th. The initial 31-date leg runs through to Boca Raton in Florida on February 26th
