In an unprecedented move coming years after their competition, it seems that Microsoft my finally be bringing web browsing to the Xbox 360. The Verge reports that the browser is a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 and will utilize Kinect (not required) gestures and voice-controls for easy browsing. The Bing functionality that already exists within the 360 Dashboard will also receive a significant upgrade, allowing users the ability to search anything rather than just media. So say, for example, you need a walkthrough for Kameo. Bing it and you will instantly be taken to a list of available websites where a walkthrough is available. It would basically make Bing the same search engine that is available on your PC or Mac today.
There is no official word as of yet for a possible time-frame of release, but more-than-likely it will be available at Microsoft’s annual Fall Dashboard Update, along with the rumored Kinect Play Fit. More details are expected next month at E3.
