u know the word....media hub...right?....... xbox will become the console for the home....while the other will remain the console for the kids room
TheKayle you are right and this is what MS are trying to do. I remember years ago MS said everyone will have a pc connected to there pc and it will do everything from Playing game to Video, Music ect. This kind of fell flat on its face and that is why MS have now pushed out the Xbox as a Media hub and the next Xbox will be the start of this being the centre of everyone's home.
I wonder if Micosoft would've came out with "The Media Hub" how many would they sell?? And if you had bought one and then later there were more "Video Games" on it instead of media, Would you feel like you've wasted your money??
video games ...r media.... microsoft is just trying to give everyone what he want....news and sports for the dad.....motion games for who isnt an hardcore gamer (usually mum and childs) ...some hardcore exclusives for the hardcore gamers....plus....the best online service...and now also internet........add the integration (high probabilty) with w8 ...smartglass function...ecc ecc..honestly..i cant blame ms...they doing so good...but like someone other said...hater gonna hate...i got ps3 and xbox and also if im playing more on ps3 in the last 8 9 months....i see the next xbox..have more chance to dominate the market than the ps4 (that i think it will be always the same....like the ps3 but with more power)
Your comment is *yawn*!
I also seen ms is adding a election app to show both partys primary and the debates in the us. Its also allows you to sign up and vote. I think its a great idea to get the younger generation involved in the us if of course its your country and this ap will only be available in the US and i like ms thinking. @digitalraptor...i thought from your past post ms charges to game online and now your saying its because of newz and facebook. When will you realize why people pay for live is because it offers so much in one place and does it very well.
Oh er... Ok. Thanks?
so service growin up. bad news? lol
Hater's gonna hate I guess.
taters gonna tate
Wow the NBC app, I am really glad I throw away my $60 a year for XBL with such quality content as this crap.
you rather have fox news?
Come on Microsoft, why you gotta keep shaft'en teh silvers.
wow i'm running to buy a 360.
Who gives a flying F**k. Who is ever going to power on their xbox to get their news from this app? So tired of Microsoft releasing these sorry A** apps.
NBC is a BS new network.
most news is bs. but its better then fox news
Definitely better than Fox News...everything is.
They can't make new ip for the box all they do is put out new apps why in hell would I look at news on a game consoles, we got life with playstation that gives u live Looks at cameras around the world and I don't use it
Do Apple charge a yearly fee to access apps on their store? Do Google? Sony sure as hell don't. What is this lunacy on the part of Microsoft and their consumers for accepting it? Disagree with me if you want, but where else do you see application access hidden behind a paywall? Ludicrous. And what of Microsoft's double standards with giving Silver members access to BBC iPlayer cause they were told no. How can they justify charging for Facebook and not iPlayer?
