will this really happen?
if it does them ms will have two choices, make it only available to live gold subscribers or gimp it more than the original ps3 browser, if its a fully working browser then almost all the current "apps" that ms wont let you use without a gold sub will suddenly become available for everyone via the web browser.
if its gold only then the negative publicity alone will render it useless but if its available for silver then it destroys microsofts current push to relegate gaming and promote its music and video services on live gold all of which and a whole lot more are available for free in a half decent web browser.
we now know the Xbox One's game licensing policy was written from the ground up for companies. It's aggressively anti-consumer and anti-middle class, and it outright ignores underprivileged gamers. It's gross, despicable, greedy, pathetic, cowardly and out of touch with a growing global resentment for corporations. - Polygon 7th June 2013
