Microsoft Bringing Comcast Xfinity TV to Xbox 360, Kinect to Windows

If this is it for Microsoft’s announcements at CES, it looks like an Xbox 720 reveal isn’t happening. What they did announce, however, is some content being brought to Xbox Live as well as Kinect being brought to Windows.

Comcast’s Xfinity TV is coming to Xbox 360, and while I’m not the biggest fan of Comcast, I’m always onboard with more content coming to the service. Between Netflix, Hulu +, and now Xfinity, users now have a large selection of content to choose from. Microsoft also announced a partnership with News Corps., which will bring Fox News, Wall Street Journal, Fox, and IGN to the console. Fox News on Xbox 360 is just what I wanted! No launch dates have been announced yet for either service.

And then there’s the matter of Kinect coming to Windows. It’s up for pre-order now and is scheduled to hit on February 1st. The upside is that Kinect for PC could potentially bring some really, really cool stuff. The downside? The $249.99 price tag, a little more than twice the cost of Kinect for Xbox 360. Yikes.
