Microsoft said today it's hired former president of CBS television programming Nancy Tellem. She'll oversee the launch of a new production studio in Los Angeles that will develop "interactive and linear content" for Xbox and other devices.
Not paying for xbl
to each their own.
Sweet! I would love to get all my TV needs on the Xbox. I hate paying for the cable box, then the programming. Xbox already ushered in movies over internet on the TV.
@DaThreats then don't nobody cares.
uhh.ok. It's honestly worth it though. Been using it since 2003 and I love it. Not sure how people can buy a $60 game, and then complain about paying $50 for 12 months. Xbox Live is = to $10 less than a new game. One time payment. lasts for 12 months. Yet those same people buy 5-6 $60.00 games a year. Hypo
I wonder if this means more shows like Guild Wars, Forward Until Dawn, and ect?
Could be their response to Wii U TV
Wii U still requires a box in addition to the console. I'm not entirely sure how it will enhance the experience, but this sort of thing (with hiring a high paying executive) is in the planning process way before a week ago announcement from Nintendo. I think, Nintendo is less of a threat than Sony to MS so MS is probably watching Sony more.
It can't be a response to nintendo when the company has been working on multi media partnerships and software trails(xbox 360 streaming apps) for years. The xbox 720 will be compatible with cable service providers and their IPTV plans made 6 years ago(A cable company in the US already using 360 as a set top box)
It could mean they're incorporating more streaming content into the Xbox 360.
This is cool news, maybe they will launch a new batch of shows like Inside Xbox? They already have interactive shows that use Kinect. I'm all for extra content, options are a great thing!
Oh, man. I miss Inside Xbox... :(
They should have never took Inside Xbox from us in the first place. We pay for the service and all they do is take stuff away and add more features that are free everywhere else.
I highly doubt your paying for anything on Xbox. We get a ton of features that aren't on any other home gaming console. Microsoft is always adding features and the new dashboard is just one of the many things we seem to get on a yearly basis. What kind of a company sticks with the same dash since launch?
Steve said xbox not windows is the further of MS Maybe he actually meant it. Ther is one problem with this Ms needs to remember that the xbox should be about games first, I meen don't get me wrong this sounds good but Damn it MS I'm tring to stay faithful to you but you have know how hard it is when sony is regurly annoucing new exsclusives after exsclusives. Yeah hands down when it comes to arcade titles you make sony look like $h1t, and fable the journey looks to be a kinect game finally worth picking up besides DC, sports, and the haunthing, but what about the big budget games. Ms have 20 studios Why I know we are not going to see much from them this gen yhis is how I hope they use them next gen. 10 Strictley for the core meaning controler base games. 6 for kinect, 3 for core kinect and and 3 for the other kinect users. accquire Klei, and Taquilla works and use tem and the other four studios for Xbla games. Now that would be a well balanced gaming division.
I watch tv free using my PS3 browser or I use a 50ft HDMI connected from my PC to Tv to watch anything I want FREE!!!!!!!
