Could this be a virus

Recently I recieved an email in my Hotmail account from a "Billy Kane" that had text that said:

Hi,This is a special new game
This game is my first work.
You're the first player.
I hope you would enjoy it.

The email itself was 120k and had no attachments. The words from the letter I posted just above was all in text, (simply typed out)

A friend told me it's possible that the letter had a hidden attachment (If anyone knows how I can tell if there is a hidden attachment, it would be helpful.)

Anyway, has anyone recieved any email like this, not from the same person, but some characteristics?

If so, was it a virus.

The wording in the e-mail sounds like it might have been a virus, however hotmail scans all attachments and if the attachment was a virus hotmail may have killed it before you saw the msg. If you are still concerned just make sure you have the latest virus definitions for your software and do a complete system scan.
