The lights are on
A number of sources have revealed to The Verge that the next-generation Xbox will be able to interact with users' TV programming similarly to Google TV.
An always-on Internet connection will apparently be required to allow for continuous streaming of entertainment services and TV signals. The cable box signal will connect to the Xbox with an HDMI cord so that the Live UI can interact with cable programming.
Previous rumors from The Verge point to a pre-E3 Xbox event in May, but nothing is confirmed yet. Head to The Verge to learn more.
pft screw that , if thats true it just further cements the reason consoles should just be consoles
Oh really? I wonder who they got this idea from...
oh you mean just like the Wii U?
I don't want to always have to be connected to the internet.
Rumors are like assholes. We all have them, and they all stink.
If it would actually replace my cable service then I'd be interested. But much like HBOGo, Netflix, Hulu, etc. it seems like a redundant service to provide.
Remember that this is not official and we'll need to hear it from the horses mouth before judging for real. That said, if true, I will be spending my money on the Ps4 who seem to be less interested in inconveniencing me with their convenient features.
I don't care about TV, but I hope the other rumors are false. If they're true, well, I'll go with PS4 or get a better PC. Maybe both.
Well I will be skipping the next Xbox system.
There are still hundreds of 360 games for me to play yet anyways.
