REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

CONFIRMED: Xbox 360 Will Soon Stream Live TV

Posted on Wednesday, October 5 @ 10:33:50 Eastern by

Partnering with 40 TV and entertainment providers, Microsoft's Xbox 360 will soon bring TV shows and live television to your living room through its dashboard interface.

Names like Bravo, Comcast, HBO, Verizon and Syfy are on board and will start sending content to gamers everywhere this holiday. Verizon's Bobbie Henson said:

We've announced that we are now collaborating with Microsoft to soon deliver a great selection of live, FiOS TV channels over the Xbox Entertainment System. What really makes this exciting is that this innovative, new service will integrate live, multi-channel streaming HD TV and Kinect voice and gesture commands via the Xbox.

We don't yet know how the service will look and how viewers will interact with content when they sit down with an Xbox 360 controller in their hand. Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of TV & Service Business Tom Gibbons said:

By bringing the technologically advanced Verizon FiOS TV service to Xbox 360 and Kinect, we are advancing our vision to provide the best in entertainment in extraordinary new ways. Xbox 360 brings all your entertainment, friends and family together in one place, and we look forward to introducing Verizon FiOS TV to the console this holiday.
