Twiter and Facebook on 360? XD

Posted 21 September 2009 - 05:24 AM

I saw this on the market place in the 360 dashboard. All I can say is WOW. So who wants to code a app for the 360 so that the few live nerds on here can access DIC from the 360.

(points to Chris and Sloth :wub: )

At this time, Xbox 360 cannot implement a web browser. The Twitter and Facebook access were implemented in cooperation with the developers of those products.

he laughs at that, but has never used a 360, so really who is missing out.

as someone who owns a ps3 and a 360, using a browser on a console is just not very easy to wield, even w/ a keyboard. it would be nice, but i don't think its a huge deal. its

I really don't feel a need for a web-browser on a console. For over a year using the 360, I never felt like I wanted to access the web from my Xbox. That's what PCs are for. How do you imagine typing a URL with the controller (not everyone has a messenger pad)? It is possible, but will take a lot of time and effort from a simple user.

So, this is good at this point that Xbox is not focused on having a web browser but rather provides a great gaming experience.

He's not missing out on much.

Having a web browser on my phone is enough. I don't care for getting websites on my console - I'd much rather use it to play games. :)
