Ye Olde OP
Ye with large black boxes--
We have the unique opportunity to do something that hasn't really been done in gaming yet. Well, hadn't been until East
, but that's besides the point. I mean, 5v5 Steel Battalion? So passé. We want 20.
As you all know by now, XBL v1 is going down on the 15th. With it goes the opportunity to update new Xboxen to the Steel Battalion v1.1 code, and the ability to unlock all content. There are workarounds to this problem, but they are crappy to say the least.
What I am asking is this - your v1 Xbox has had a fantastic run. Retire it to our loving embrace, where we will keep it warm, fed, and pumping out steaming hot mecha action at least twice a year.
TL;DR - give us your xBox.
If you have a qualifying Xbox (functional, no mods, unbanned, all cables and cords), we want it. In fact, we want it so bad that we'll pay to have it shipped from wherever it is directly to our door before the 15th so we can upgrade its drive to what we need. Your reward is my undying gratitude, a good home for obsolete hardware, and free entrance to a Seattle local Freeplay event in the very near future.

If you also happen to have a SB rig you're willing to part with, you're an entirely different kind of hero, and I want you to PM me.
So - help us make the most ridiculously epic mecha simulation on the planet even more ridiculously epic.
Oh, hai. Been a few weeks. Perhaps you may not have heard, but through the generous donations of PA Forumers and PAX Enforcers, we have come across enough xbox hardware to power almost three
Steel Battalion rooms. While our 2010 Seattle plans are not quite that epic (I've come to understand the rest of the show would like some place to set up), you can bet there will be 20 dedicated SB stations available at Prime.
20? Good lord, mara, whatever will you do with 20? An interesting question. Certainly, like in Boston, a set of 5 dedicated to new player boot camp. Perhaps 5 more for intermediate training and the midnight masters classes - these were a Saturday hit. But with the other 10, I bet we could pull off a PAX-long meta-campaign. That's right - giant robots AND meaningful consequences. And permadeath. And at least one more 9-on-1 Earthshaker vs. Vitzh match.
I'd like to repeat the phrase "PAX-long meta-campaign" again, because it makes the room go greyscale when I type it.
You can help make this happen. We need more Steel Battalion units and more copies of Line of Contact. Your donations will keep the game alive, make PAX that much more metal, and buff your gaming karma to the point where the admins start adding specialty mobiles, just for you.
