If Microsofts fanboys are a bit too rabid about their online games, its only because Xbox 360 is easily the best system for multiplayer action. Its why SFX360, a South Florida meet-up group for Xbox 360 fans, has blossomed into one of the liveliest gamer organizations around. The group meets the first Saturday of every month in Davie, as well as organizing weekly online meet-ups like Gamerchix Ladies Night over Xbox Live. This Saturday theyll be celebrating their first anniversary in style: With a huge LAN party and gaming tournament at Lucky Strike (1691 Michigan Ave., Miami Beach). Starting at 3 p.m., SFX will conduct single elimination contests for Halo 3, Gears of War, and Call of Duty 4, with cash prizes stretching up to $400. Theres no cover, but tourney registration costs $30 per person (Call of Duty is free, however). Visit www.xbox.meetup.com/171.
