Seattle Sounders FC promised an announcement of global impact. And while that might have been a bit of an oversell, FC’s announcement of a marketing partnership with Microsoft — most notably a jersey sponsorship with Xbox 360 Live — has turned out to be an annoucement of at least global note.

Here’s my story in The News Tribune (with a couple of very good photos).

Here’s columnist Dave Boling’s take.

Here’s a story from USA Today. A version from The Canadian Press. A mention from Reuters UK. And an AP story carried by the International Herald-Tribune in France.

Some very distinct takes were offered by The Game Guy from St. Louis Today, and the news also drew note from Next Generation, a site dedicated to interactive entertainment.
