havn't you seen him in studio 60? That's pretty much what he looks like in that show but i'd say the most recent film he's been in that you can get pictures of would be numb so that's probably the closest to what he looks like now.(he is pretty much the sexiest man on earth!) yum!!!

That guy from the first pictures actually looks like Bill Gates, only funnier. I can't believe so many celebrities were there that day, including the one and only Matthew Perry. That man should have received the Xbox simply because he showed up.

I bet Carmen Electra only showed up because she wanted to show she's a complete woman, not only beautiful, but also a smart geek. I'm not sure an Xbox 360 is the right way to do that, though... All in all, she looks great with it!

The guy who took the first Xbox looks so happy, he makes Bill Gates laugh as well. It's incredible how fast a smile or a laugh can spread, it's stronger than a virus, usually. I would have loved to be there at that time.

Man, i wish i was there too. I am a fan of Bill Gates's work and i really wanted to get my hands on that 360, i mean i wanted to be one of the first. I hope i can be a game developer one day and i'll see my game on one of his xboxes.
