• Improved voice search including multi language
• Want to be a cord cutter? Lack of sports making it hard to make the cut? In addition to existing access to MLB and UFC, Xbox will now have NBA, NHL as well as all ESPN content not just ESPN3 but ALL ESPN content. While great news for fans, it’s still missing the big three Auto Racing, Soccer & Football. These are the three top properties in all of sports I suspect it’s only a matter of time before these follow suit.
• The changing role of Kinect it’s not just a game controller. Its morphing into an interface as well as a kinematic device for fitness. Will finally arrive or is it still just a novelty?
