AnalogHype: Saturday, Xbox released a new site to preview some of the features for the new experience. They may have released more information then they wanted.
This is a good thing, it was bound to happen..lets just hope internet explorer on 360 is better than on pc.
Browse doesnt mean internet BROWSER !!! They are on the game section so it means BROWSE your game collection LOL. What a stupid written arcticle.
i doubt its nternet browser. Internet browser doesn't seem kuje the type of feature you keep secret...not to me anyway
if the weakest system (Wii) has a browser then there is no reason the 360 can't have one.
@solidt12 Correct me if I am wrong; but the 360 is the only console without a web browser. To me that is disappointing and doesn't make a lot of sense that Microsoft does not integrate their IE experience with the XBOX platform. Here's to hoping that they have seen the light!
But if it is an Internet browser, I don't care. I have all three systems, and I think you have to be a complete idiot, or just feel like wasting your life away if you actually use the Wii or PS3 browser. The browsers they use suck balls, even if you have a keyboard. Just jump on your PC if you need to hop online that bad. Unless you can install Firefox, console browsers are a waste of time and space.
There is going to be NO Web Browser on the New Xbox Experience. If you watch the video "Browse" is under more then one category. You will see there is a "Browse" under Games and under Movies if you watch the video.
i use google search all the time on my PS3! It works perfect
I thought the same thing, but back when I wasn't able to use the internet for both my console and PC, it would have been nice to have a Internet Browser on the console. So it would nice and helpful for people who can't use both at the same time.. But, now that I can use both for internet at the same time, it doesn't bother me. I wouldn't use the browser on the console, I would still switch over to my PC.
hate to say it, but i believe chasuk08 and SeNiLe911 are right in saying that browse doesnt mean web browser in the xbox360 not saying that it is impossible that there will be a browser in the dashboard update...im just saying that browse isnt the web browser browse, most likely means, that you will be able to view the different games, movies, music, pictures or whatever category you are in, easily through thumbnails or something of that nature
Wow, that is incredible news!!! NOT. Who cares? Use the pc for browsing, don't know about the wii-browser but the ps3 one is fückin' crap. Besides, if any of you actually take the time to click the link it quickly becomes obvious that the "browser" won't be for internet.
I dont care what they do but they would be stupid not to put in a browser. When youtube is on the living room tv it becomes a family activity.
I would rather they add some type of youtube applet instead of a browser. When I get on my 360 I am either playing games, or some other form of multimedia. I don't need to have a browser on my 360. And I honestly can't see the true advantages to having that feature on the 360. That's what I have a PC for. If MS had an extra panel that they need to fill up, I would rather it be some sort of video gaming news feed where you see a story select it and the video news feed plays. Adding a browser would only be to fall inline with the Jones, and if that's the only reason for it, then the 360 doesn't need it. Microsoft...Keep it simple.
I didn't have a computer for the longest time. As a result I was using my PS3 browser coupled with my free jacked-from-someone wifi. It's a really nice feature if you don't have anything else.
LOL LMAO Where are we? The stone age?!
Its still better than the PS3's POS browser. Though i have my two pcs, tv and ps3 all on my big desk so i don't need to use the ps3 browser.
Great news ps3 browser is so awfull and also when you open three pages not enouph memory i'm glad i got rid of it on the same day
PPhead!!!! Are you a spambot? Seriously... someone needs to reprogram you. You wear a helmet, right?
Let me guess. Did your PS3 look something like this? http://img140.imageshack.us...
Lmfao, good one.
@DJ LOL, nice one from DROID
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D Your xBox 360 can't even Surf the Web??? ;-D My PS3 CAN!!! Since it's been out!!! That's SOOOOOOOOOOOO Last-gen!!! ;-D +STILL??? 6 Bubbles??? WOW!!! ;-D
PP is actually right.. PS3's web browser is actually pretty much un-usable. That's fact
..Bubbled your self back to 6 eh? must be nice to have 10 spare bubbling accounts or id have 6+ by now..
The BS3 browser is an interesting feature. Worthless, yet needed because of a lack of games. Kinda like everything else on the console, and I use the term "console" loosely here. More like "George Forman grill with a tv connection and no fat drip tray". This pretty much explains all the rabid BS3 fanboys ever present on this site. Staring at an empty XMB can get lonely sometimes...I guess I don't really blame them.
Have I not explained this already? Red Underline = Incorrect Spelling. Punctuation, punctuation, punctuation! Caps on words like I, I is ALWAYS capped. Does the Xbox 360 somehow diminish brain capacity or were you drawn to the 360 because of your limited brain capacity? One would argue the latter on account of the 3 year warranty being a bigger selling point than the reliability of the box. "Great news ps3 browser is so awfull and also when you open three pages not enouph memory i'm glad i got rid of it on the same day" awfull = awful enouph = enough ...also, please remember to always capitalize the contraction I'm. If you own a DS you might want to consider My Word Coach since you apparently refuse how to read or write properly. @ Teh Cell "The BS3 browser is an interesting feature.

"George Forman grill with a tv connection and no fat drip tray" - Who are you quoting? Are you quoting yourself? Wow, you need to go and play some more Too Human since you likely consider inventory management right up there with "book learnin's". You are so smart, SMRT... A little hint though...It isn't the same. Also note, you spelled Foreman wrong. Oh well, I guess I just expect too much from the 360 crowd, but I assume if you guys were smarter you'd already own a PS3.
Yeah because no person has ever jumped on a PC with "Windows" to play a game, or surf the net in the past 20yrs.... Stupid Droids
If i m not mistaking when i bought starfox 64 it had rumble feature. Did the ps3 had it at launch??? Gess not! By the way the N64 was released over ten years ago. Wow that's 2 generations back. And don't give the copyright thing. the 360 had it from launch.
Would be a cool addition. I dont understand why it wouldnt have one besides the fact they are trying to force xbox owners to buy windows. Their browser would probably be better than Sony's but this is probably false info, because they would of announced this. They need to announce all their tricks cause they are falling way behind in games.
They are being very careful about what they show. Haven't you noticed? They have also stated there are a few more unannounced features. So who knows. But yeah, the PS3's browser isn't too bad. Needs to take care of the memory issue, but I do like the zoom..when it works right.
been looking forward to when they would add this feature. hopefully this would support most of the sites the ps3 browser doesnt currently support
Why would you nee a Browser? The only reason I see is to check your mails. Otherwise it's easier with keyboard and mouse
I use my PS3 browser all the time. think about it. Im between games if you want to check what's new on N4G do you really want to walk upstairs, to your PC to check for updates and email . no i just hit the web real quick then go back to gaming. Youtube, and Megavideo work in the PS3 browser but alot of flash pages don't. I hope the 360 has a better browser.
If, true..... time to eat crow all those (and their were many) who dissed the PS3 having a browser...... waits for all to jump on the bandwagon now...lol
Nice feature to add. But from my perspective it's not really needed, why anyone would use a browser on a console when they have a perfectly good PC is beyond me.
It's more convient.
I agree with Fishy...you can never have too many features but I can't see myself really using this heavily.
and your PC takes one minute to boot while your console takes only 10 seconds, a console browser is a lifesaver, believe me.
wiggle the mouse and I am on in a split second.
Same here. I never turn off my PC. I would have no need for a console browser. My PC is on 24/7 and is right next to my consoles, so it's not a hassle to switch over. But, I can see the reasoning for some people wanting to have it and use it.
Really, a whole MINUTE?!?! Wow, kid, be glad you weren't around for 14.4 KBPS modems and Windows 3.1!
...the video is just showing the ability to scan or "browse" all your games in a single list. Which the 360 has always had. *if* the 360 were to get a local browser (it already has one via the Media Center Extender, guys) it would be listed under Internet not under browse. Major, major waste of bandwidth, children...
but then again is it really needed?
ps3 & Wii Got Browsers, Microsoft the ones that claim to have the best online service out of the other three doesnt have a web browser in their console? (yet, or maybe not)
Online gaming is different than online browsing. I'd love to have a web browser for the 360, but it just seems like consoles are taking more from computers instead of coming up with something fresh.
Xbox Live has amazing games, and playing online is best out of the three consoles. Even though PS3 does have a browser, I think Xbox 360 is still better. Everything about it is great, besides not having a browser.
Hopefully it's better than the one on PS3. Considering how much Google Integration is on the PS3, I'm wondering how long it'll take for the Chrome browser to replace the native Opera Browser.
Google powers a lot of stuff on the PS3... When Chrome came out I started wondering if Sony would let Chrome would replace the PS3's browser. Anyway more features are always welcome. Competition is good for us gamers.
Yahoo? lol :)
In game browsing would be nice, i was hoping the XMB could faciliate that you pause the game, load up the browser and check gamefaq's but it didn't.
At least some game devs have built this into their games - WarHawk and Pain are two that come to mind immediately.
LOL the xbox is bullshit
You mean like "TROPHIES"?
pointless. only a droid would attempt web browsing on a console!! LOOOL u cant even open 3 pages without crashing the PS3 with its sh1t RAM! LOOL.
not sure why you got disagree's because that sh!t happens to me every time I use it
I honestly don't know how Phony ever expected to run an operating system, albeit a gimped one, an XMB, and a web browser all on the BS3's whole 256 megs of ram. Never mind the games...
KiddyBrownTurd... YOU ARE A FA-GGOT
why is everyone dissing the ps3 browser, im always on it i have no troubles its great, i go on that more than games, and i have a computer.
Simple. It's the Playstation 3. :-/
It need optimization and some new flash/java but I like it too.
Why are there so many droid caring about the 360 having a browser?
"why is everyone dissing the ps3 browser, im always on it i have no troubles its great, i go on that more than games, and i have a computer." HAHAHA, that just says everything. BS3 games are so boring that people are running to their web browsers to kill the time. Enjoy your glorified web browser / movie player, dorks!!!
HAHAAHA all they do is go to n4g from the ps3 and just troll the 360 news while stroking their ps3 with the other hand.
I have really lost all my patience, and I simply have to say this to you, and I don't care if you get offended or not. Here Goes.......................... .................. Where do you get your photos from for your Avatars????
Browse doesn't mean internet browser on the 360, just browsing your games collection in your hard-dive. I rarely ever use the one that comes with my PS3. Microsoft won't put that as a feature because most likely in their minds everyone has a computer, be it laptop or desktop, somewhere in their homes.
on the video Marc Whitten says "We're doing a huge amount of innovation in the new Xbox Experience"... He's joking right? RIGHT?? seriously tho.. which parts of NXE is 'innovative'? 1 vs 100 is quite cool to have as a game to kill time (i wud certainly play on it).. but there is not much more innovation in the NXE.. John Schappert says "We wanted to reinvent the Xbox".. well you've already done that, you went from Xbox to Xbox 360.. and if you want to reinvent it again, reinvent the fvcking console so it won't have the fvcking RROD.. but overall the NXE looks nice addition to the 360.. i wonder what exactly is new.. (meaning, everything, not just the bits we know :P ).. but.. i think this 'Browse' option is the browse games (unless its under the game category).. but i doubt they would call it 'Browse' if it is an internet browser.. if it is.. i really hope they have a browser that is better than the current IE8.. and that its actually W3C valid.. otherwise.. i wont even touch that feature (just like im using PS3's browser rarely..)
