Rumor: Xbox 360 To Get Internet Explorer

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?
