Apparently Microsoft are going to expand on the slightly useless Bing tool on the 360 dashboard and bring in a full browsing experience. I say “full” because it’s Internet Explorer, so chances are it’ll be similar to the desktop version, but it’s better than nothing and almost certainly better than NetFront on the PS3. Yeah, I went there.
“Microsoft is currently testing a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 on its Xbox 360 console,” says The Verge. “We are told that the browser will let Xbox users surf all parts of the web straight from their living rooms.”
The site, citing Mr Source as normal – presumably the same one who leaked the $99 deal – says that Kinect Gestures are in there, along with voice control, although neither are mandatory. More details are expected at E3, where Microsoft is heavily rumoured to be throwing games out the window and focusing on – well – this.
