Microsoft to showcase Xbox 360 IPTV features Microsoft Corp. will show off the Xbox 360 IPTV features at next month's Connected Home exhibition in London. The event will take place between March 5th and 7th. Ed Graczyk, Microsoft's Worldwide director of marketing, will demonstrate the service during his keynote speech titled, "The Future of Connected Entertainment".
"Separately the Xbox 360 and Microsoft TV IPTV Edition deliver unique and exciting entertainment experiences, but IPTV on Xbox 360 delivers a real value proposition for consumers, service providers and content and game developers alike," Graczyk said.

He added: "By integrating these industry-leading solutions, we continue to drive innovation and enable new connected entertainment experiences for consumers." The IPTV service is set to launch in Europe before the end of the year. Being part of the Xbox 360 brings some new feature possibilities, such as recording video while playing games and chatting over Xbox Live while watching TV.

the new revision is nice HDMI,120HDD,new cpu,redesigned mobo
I with they would not pad it by 80 tho total is rumored at 480,you ask me MS would be better not to reduce the current price of the 360 and jsut let it remain at 400 for another 2 years then put the Hdvd drive in it and leave it at 400 till the PS3 goes under 400

why would it be bull crap? the 360 needs a new HD there is no doubt abotu that,HDMI on the new revision would be nice but is not needed same for HDVD,as long as MS is not selling the 20GB or 120GB 360 in black with the revised guts for 480 I will be happy.

*sighs* like i said provide a link to any official word by MS,don't bother you won't find one,what you will find is ms refuting any changes at this time,for any bigger hdd etc there needs to be a more vocal demand only then when the pressure mounts will it happ'n,that does'nt mean i don't agree with a larger hdd as that'd be great but at this time it's noth'n more than rumour we can only hope..out.

scorpNZ
sometims they block the news or avoid news thats in their best interest to say,also the rumor was "updated" from soemone in retail.

Plus you have the the price at 450-500$ retail(soem stores ahve the price and mfg numbers) MS would be a fool to only offer a black revised 360 with no
HD size boost
OR
HDMI
OR
HDVD

Looking at MS and the most easiest path its either HD or HDMI with a lower chance being HDVD.


So "something" is coming ,its a HDVD or HDMI or both for that price with no advancement in the HDD then they to have thier head stuck up sonys butt...its a magical butt that can take anything.....hehehehehe

no bad ><
bad bad bad sorry LOL

hey i think its a crock. me and my friend know that you can change the hdd your self and put in a larger hdd. all the hdd is a laptop hdd we cracked open ours found that best buy sells the same hdd but in a larger size and you can format it we are working on file transfer right now and when we have it we wil post with results and what to do so why pay all that just for a HDMI when if a larger hdd is what you want then got to best buy and pick one up.
