Microsoft Game Studios have reavealed XSN Sports, which will see a number of Xbox Live sports titles all linked up to provide a sports network.

The aim of XSN Sports is to let gamers compete beyond just the single game that they're playing, and have virtual leagues where you get to compete against other real gamers, with teams, leagues and schedules all organisable via a special XSN Sports website.

Xbox Live will also send out live updates every 15 minutes, with up to date stats on players, and will keep gamers connected even when away from the Xbox by providing updates over the net and to mobile phones.

NFL Fever 2004, NBA Inside Drive 2004, Top Spin, Amped 2, Links 2004 and NHL Rivals will all feature in the XSN Sports network, which is expected to launch in America this summer.
