Chicago Xbox chats with Jaleco Entertainment's Quincy Roach as he talks about World Championship Pool 2004, the first Xbox Live! billiards game:

    Will players be able to improve their stats?

    No, unfortunately this is something we left out due to time constraints. Custom-created characters will solely depend on the player's own skill to beat the competition (and it can get pretty fierce playing the CPU). Items like pool cues will allow your "shot strength meter" to go beyond regular limits, but other than that it's all about having the right amount of skill to win.
