Microsoft has revealed its plans to take over the world of gaming at a huge event called X02 in Spain.

Loads of top gaming journalists were flown to a theme park in Seville for the big event, and CBBC Newsround Online was there too.

Talking tactics

Microsoft's big new idea is something called Xbox Live, which is a way to play games against people over the internet - but with a difference.

Part of the kit you need for online gaming is called a communicator, which lets you talk to other players while you're playing.

You can talk tactics, chat about school or anything you want, all through a special headset.

Potter preview

We also saw loads of new games that will hit the Xbox before Christmas, including the eagerly awaited Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Now we're not allowed to tell you anything about the game just yet, but from what we've seen so far it's ace and is just like being a part of the book.
