The lights are on
Sony's PS3 had an internet browser since day one, and a recent rumor suggests that Microsoft's Xbox 360 is finally getting one of its own.
The Verge, citing multiple sources, has a rumor that the system will get a fully functional Internet Explorer browser that can be controlled via Kinect voice and motion gestures (but Kinect will not be mandatory). The 360 currently only has a Bing search for media.
If this is true, E3 would be as good a time as any to announce this move.
In these days of tablets and smart phones, does anyone care about a browser on their system anymore?

I have mixed feelings about Microsoft 360 getting in the sack with Internet Exployer (IE) IE has always been a pain in the butt with Vista but then I guess you can't compare apples with oranges can we?
I purchased the XBOX 360 in December 2011 with 4 games. Yeah, another money pit.
Internet Explorer? Well, it's better than not having a browser...wait, no I need to think about this one.
It's sad to see consoles trying to become what PC's already are while they still continue to gain the market share of gaming customers.
The browser on the PlayStation 3 isn't really anything to be excited over. I wish the PlayStation had a full-fledged browser like Firefox but I guess it's going to be as good as it gets.
One thing I never understood, why hasn't the XBOX had even an older version of Internet Explorer on it? Never made sense to me in all honesty.
Xbox should work on getting some games rather than a browser. Internet explorer?! LOL
Anyone else remember when Xbox P.D Aaron Greenberg, said that the X360 will never get a browser¿ ¬_¬“
Nooooooooooooooo! Not IE!
Cool but chances are I won't use it much
Wow, I guess what I said over live to my friends that Xbox 360 should have Internet Explorer. Know what. I guess tis true about this internet browser. CAn't wait to see this happen
Let me guess "You must have an Xbox Gold Account to use the internet" ¬_¬
If I could download torrents on my xbox then I would be excited.
Fire Fox would be better but hey cant complane about internet explorer
Should've went with firefox :/
Ewww… The world's crappiest web browser…...
