HBO has announced it'll be bringing HBO Go, its Internet-based streaming video platform, to Xbox 360 consoles on April 1. In a synergy made in geek heaven, Game of Thrones: Clash of Kings will debut on that very day, with the HBO Go platform being pushed as an excellent way to watch the highly-awaited second season (read on for what this'll require exactly). This also gives you an excellent excuse to avoid the entire Internet during April Fool's Day.
Microsoft's also unveiled a new Family Bundle for the Xbox 360 itself. The $299 package includes a console with 4GB hard drive, Kinect sensor and one controller, all in limited-edition Glossy White finish. It's bundled with Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports and a 3-month Gold subscription to Xbox Live.
That Gold access, by the way, will be required to access HBO Go, which also requires a subscription to HBO itself. If you're thinking of signing up to access Go from your console, ensure your cable provider supports the platform first. You also better catch up on the first season of Game of Thrones, because how much longer do we have to stop ourselves from posting freaking spoilers? Look, Ned's dead, okay? Deal with it.
