Apparently Xbox 360s are only for use in the living room. That's the latest golden nugget from Microsoft's Xbox product director Aaron Greenberg, who told Edge that the Xbox 360 will never have a web browser because it would provide a "poor experience."
Sayeth Greenberg, "We really believe that the web browsing experience on TV is a poor one, and the real magic is to take those web experiences and optimise them for the living room. That's what we did with Netflix. So, sure, you can go on the PS3 and go to Facebook and and try to navigate, but it's an absolute nightmare."
So, no Natal-based web browsing? SPOnG "is disappoint".
Greenberg engaged in his favourite past-time of taking jabs at the PS3, adding "No disrespect, there's things I love about the PS3, but that's not one of them. We want the online experience to be fun and optimised for the living room, and we'll continue to add more applications to get more richness."
