No browser for the Xbox 360, ever

Xbox 360 will never get a web browser, according to Microsoft’s director of product management Aaron Greenberg. Surfing the web on your television is ‘a poor experience,’ he says.

When quizzed about the subject by Edge, Greenberg said, “No. 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.”

He continued: “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.”
