The Xbox is no longer a simple games platform — it's an entertainment hub — and to support that trend, Microsoft has revealed new information about its Los Angeles-based studio focused on producing "true interactive content." The 125 person effort is being spearheaded by Nancy Tellem, former president of CBS Television Studios who joined the company last year, and will expand upon the company's ongoing efforts with live events, such as the interactive polls it utilized during the Academy Awards. The studio, Tellem says, will be integral to the company's strategy to "pioneering the future of TV," which will include over 40 new TV and movie apps coming to Xbox in the next year.
Lost me... It would take some serious changes and extremely impressive innovation to even make me think of buying another Xbox product.
Even then, I have a really taint taste in my mouth from the joke that is the current Xbox slim Kinect console. I have no clue why people are still buying the thing. Are MS even interested in gaming any more?
MS have completely abandoned the hardcore that made the Xbox what it WAS. This will come back and bite them in the butt next gen. They keep pushing Kinect games that don't sell so you would think they'd learn their lesson by now.
Day one for me love to be entertained.
Entertainment should benefit gaming, not abandoning gaming.
