This is a good thing, it was bound to happen..lets just hope internet explorer on 360 is better than on pc.

chasuk083646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

Browse doesnt mean internet BROWSER !!! They are on the game section so it means BROWSE your game collection LOL. What a stupid written arcticle.

sonarus3646d ago

i doubt its nternet browser. Internet browser doesn't seem kuje the type of feature you keep secret...not to me anyway

solidt123646d ago

if the weakest system (Wii) has a browser then there is no reason the 360 can't have one.

mhr5123646d ago

@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!

Sexius Maximus3646d ago

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.

SeNiLe9113646d ago

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.

PimpHandStrong3646d ago

i use google search all the time on my PS3!

It works perfect

No Way3646d ago

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.

SixZeroFour3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

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

MiloGarret3646d ago

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.

f7897903646d ago

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.

uxo223646d ago

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.

BabyStomper50003646d ago

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.

PotNoodle3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

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.

pp3646d ago

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

Drekken3646d ago

PPhead!!!! Are you a spambot? Seriously... someone needs to reprogram you. You wear a helmet, right?

DJ3646d ago

Let me guess. Did your PS3 look something like this?

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

BUKKAKALYPSE3646d ago

PP is actually right.. PS3's web browser is actually pretty much un-usable. That's fact

Pain3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

..Bubbled your self back to 6 eh? must be nice to have 10 spare bubbling accounts or id have 6+ by now..

Teh Cell3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

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.

spelle cheque3646d ago (Edited 3646d ago )

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.

The BS3 - Good one, that must have taken a few hours to come up with, very original.

"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.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3646d ago

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

bennyace3646d ago

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.

Drekken3646d ago

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.

tehReaper3646d ago

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.

Mikelarry3646d ago

been looking forward to when they would add this feature. hopefully this would support most of the sites the ps3 browser doesnt currently support

Dark_Vendetta3646d ago

Why would you nee a Browser? The only reason I see is to check your mails. Otherwise it's easier with keyboard and mouse

solidt123646d ago

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.
