Obama inauguration takes the Spotlight on Xbox Live


Log into Xbox Live tonight and the first thing you'll see is ... a photo of President Obama from today's inauguration. Indeed, the spotlight of the Spotlight channel is today's ceremony, including video of Obama and Vice President Joe Biden being sworn into office, the 44th President's inaugural speech and more.

Even the Movies and TV Shows categories have taken on the theme, featuring the likes of The West Wing and -- wait a second -- Mars Attacks? Yes, the Tim Burton camp-fest is inexplicably among the inaugural offerings. In any event, it makes sense that Microsoft would make a rather big deal about today's momentous occasion, having already urged users to Rock the Vote and conducted an informal election survey last fall (which now-President Obama and his running mate handily won).
