I've used mine for watching movies, listening to music and gaming.

In a matter of terms, it is an entertainment center. But it's mainly a gaming console. M$ is funny.

Lol I knew there would be some 'top line' BS about being a media centre before I even entered this thread.

Like it or not, PS3 beat them to it and I don't think they could even compete. PS3 has had iPlayer and Love Film for a while now, built in media centre and Blu-Ray. Exactly what does the 360 have in terms of 'media' other than pictures and standard def DVD play back?

Personally I think anyone who buys a console for 'media' capabilities is misguided. Other than buying a PS3 for a Blu-Ray player, I would say that is legitimate seeing as you get more than just a Blu-Ray player.

If MS really want to claim it as a media centre, they need to work on HD format compatibility. IMO.

They should stick to what brings the money in. XBL. I think they are all trying to milk the success of the Wii and promote 'family activities.'

Many people likely use NetFlix on it. I have (before I downgraded my ISP to save money). It is now only a gaming console for me.

Oh yes, it's a media console, that's why you can play blu-ray on it and it has a great web browser built into it.


Oh wait...

Ha ha ha, really, MS said that!

If anyone wanted an 'entertainment' system, they'd build a HTPC and not use a games console...
