"It's important that Xbox Live is not viewed as an island, but something that integrates well with other social networks--so Facebook and Twitter integration is very important"

good interview... looks like we wont be seeing a new xbox in the next 4 yrs... the way he's saying it is that the 4 or 5 years cycle before this gen was apparant since the jump from 2d to 3d to 3d HD was needed .... but this time its the software thats going to make the jump with natal... as the hardware is pretty powerfull already... they need to find a solution to dvd 9 though...

@kionic ... he actually looks very slee-... no wait thats probably racist

You know, because you have such a well known name everyone knows that you are being sarcastic...but i am willing to bet that if you said all the same things with a different would have 9 bubbles by now.

Really? Because I'm pretty sure that in the article with Sony posting a $390 million dollar lost, I saw Xbox fanboys getting most of the agrees and Sony fanboys getting most of the disagrees. So I'm wondering what are Xbox people doing in a Sony article?

P.S. You say that you own both consoles, yet I only see you say negative things about SONY and their fanboys, yet you don't condone the xbox fanboys when they say nothing but illogical BS? Atleast, SaberEdge who favors the 360 actually hopes Sony good things.

Man_of_the_year3343d ago (Edited 3343d ago )

On the contrary. I only point out the Sony Fanboys. I love my PS3 and if you read my history you would have seen that i have said that many times. I also have stocks in MS and Sony so i don't want either console to fail let alone any of there other products or services that they both offer.

I just try and reduce the FUD that the majority of the people on this site throw around....and the majority of people doing it is Sony Fanboys, so ya i will target them...since i only have 2 bubbles i have to select carefully who i "educate" and i most often stay out of the 98% of flamebait articles. There are PLENTY of SOny Fanboys that correct any FUD that is said by a MS fanboy so what is the sense of me also commenting when i only have 2 bubbles.

Good interview. I have always liked Shane Kim, he seems like an intelligent guy and has a clear vision for Xbox 360.
