Looks like Microsoft will finally release a full Web Browser on the XBOX 360, as The Verge reports that Internet Explorer 9 is currently being tested on the console, and will integrate Kinect gestures and voice control.
There's no word yet on the release date, but with Microsoft’s E3 showcase around the corner, most likely we will see it there.The Xbox 360 currently includes Bing voice search, but it's limited to media results. Microsoft's new Internet Explorer browser for Xbox will expand on this functionality to open up a full browser for the console. We are told that the browser will let Xbox users surf all parts of the web straight from their living rooms.
Microsoft has also integrated Kinect gestures and voice control heavily into the experience, allowing Xbox owners to quickly search using the existing Bing functionality and pull up relevant web pages. Kinect support is not mandatory according to our sources, but the browser is said to be tuned for Kinect usage.
What do you think? Too late now or a good addition?
