Is Bing Coming To Xbox Live?

paidContent.com: Look for some new entertainment-related features to be added to Microsoft’s Bing search engine this week. The company is hosting a showy press conference in L.A. tomorrow, along with a panel discussion with entertainment “innovators,” including Ryan Seacrest. Microsoft isn’t commenting on what it is announcing, but IDG News Service cites sources who outline several announcements the company has in store, including a music player that will let users stream tracks they find in Bing and TV results that will also include some episode streaming.

One additional possibility—first mentioned speculatively by TechFlash‘s Todd Bishop—is that some of these features, including the TV search results, may also make their way to Microsoft’s Xbox Live online gaming service. Bishop says he isn’t “privy to the Microsoft announcements,” but I think Microsoft may have tipped its hand during a demo at E3 last week. (E3, Industry, Tech, Xbox 360)

Wow
That would be a big reveal.
Bereaver  +   2057d ago
Well... since MS owns Bing, it wouldn't be surprising to me. Actually, I'm more surprised that it's taking them so long.

Cannot come without adding a web browser which they said they wont EVER do. The only way I can see it happening is on there new video chat software to search for videos to watch together.

You can already access a web browser through the media center.
D4RkNIKON  +   2056d ago
A web browser is something you'd expect from a paid service like live. It is dumb that it isn't already included..

still useless.

Who would use a games console. to browse the web?

now that's just silly.

Thats what pc's are for. =D

I just use bing for their cashback. After they discontinue that on July 31st I don't think I'll ever use bing again. Bing sucks IMO.

When I saw that video at E3, that was all my eyes were focused on! I asked the same question, but for some reason, I doubt it.
jaredhart  +   2057d ago
I don't see it as a surprise.
It seems logical to me. Microsoft owns Bing so why not?
ElementX  +   2057d ago
I enjoy using Bing as my search engine at work. At home I have the Google home page with fun add-ons. I like Bing's amazing photos which change every day at 2am Central Time :)

Yeah I remember seeing this and expecting them to announce a browser for the Xbox 360 but that didn't happen. Maybe it's in the works I could see it working with Kinect but If I have to use a controller then pass.
Godmars290  +   2057d ago
Why/how would a browser search engine come to something that doesn't have a browser?
KionicWarlord222  +   2057d ago
I was thinking the same thing . I think bing on xbl might just be a portal to bings video section .

Its only a guess though .
Fishy Fingers  +   2057d ago
They're partnered with Yahoo now right? I'd take that over Bing. Although the shopping/cash back program they run is good.

Too bad MS is getting rid of Bing cashback. That was the only reason I used Bing. Saved a ton of money.

Sorry, but I don't like Bing. I have tried to use it for my searches but google always gives me what I'm looking for.

Is bing coming to live?
who cares?

peeps  +   2057d ago
Would make ense but wonder how they will do it. We've heard in the past how they don't wanna have a browswer for the system so perhaps they just have a limited search engine?

Anyway, does anyone use Bing? I actually tried it once but the results were no better than google imo so back to google i went lol
The real killer  +   2056d ago
Yes, Bing is also on my PS3 just like on my PC and unlike on my 360.
And i use more often Google than Bing.
diatom  +   2056d ago
MS likes to funnel everything through Bing to pad the usage numbers. I doubt it's a browser, more like video search.
asphogears  +   2056d ago
Maybe Microsoft is announcing Kinect's price instead of Bing?
