Sony's PS3 had an internet browser since day one, and a recent rumor suggests that Microsoft's Xbox 360 is finally getting one of its own.

The Verge, citing multiple sources, has a rumor that the system will get a fully functional Internet Explorer browser that can be controlled via Kinect voice and motion gestures (but Kinect will not be mandatory). The 360 currently only has a Bing search for media.

If this is true, E3 would be as good a time as any to announce this move.
In these days of tablets and smart phones, does anyone care about a browser on their system anymore?

When they announced Xbox's BING i thought it was a search engine.
It would be nice if the Xbox had one though. I would enjoy it.

Yeah even the Wii has its own browser. That's the only thing the Xbox needs and it will be perfect!

I think it'll be pretty cool, mainly cause PS3 fanboys have one less thing to criticize about the Xbox 360 lol

-sigh- too bad you can't download Chrome from the internet explorer(more than likely). :(

I don't like Internet explorer... at all. All I gotta say is: Windows 8 Better be AMAZING.

Windows 8 is amazing, or at least the PC version is, I dunno whether you're talking about some kinda Xbox windows 8 thing or something else.

P.S I know it's amazing cause I have the consumer preview of the PC version.

It would be a lot easier on Xbox, and nicer. I wouldn't have to turn my computer on very often if wanting to go to this site.

What? All Slims have a wifi adapter. That's nothing new. We're talking about the console having an actual web browser now.

Wii's browser is awful. Freezes constantly, cant load flash, video, barely loads pictures. Cant handle FB, either.

If they get this right on Xbox, that will be great. Look at walkthroughs, check forums, etc, without having to switch devices or leave the room!
