Rankings for Xbox

One of the most popular games consoles around is Microsoft's Xbox. Like chessers, Xboxers are also able to play online - in something called Xbox Live. In this interesting paper, Microsoft outlines exactly how they will rank XBox Live participants using a ranking system called TrueSkill™.

The paper makes mention of ELO, noting that it is used in chess but that it is inadequate where there are two teams or players involved.
