Hurp durp xbox is uh consoles.

Back in 2006, I used it as a Media player to download TV shows and movies and I still do actually, so there is some truth to what he's saying.

Non-gaming related activities:

Quote:
# Windows Live Messenger integration.
# Xbox Live Marketplace offers downloadable content for games, music and movies.
# Voice and Video chat.
# Netflix video service allowing for unlimited streaming of television shows and movies (Available in US and Canada only, Netflix membership required).
# Zune application allowing for streaming of video content instantly in 1080p HD with 5.1 surround sound.
# Sky Player offering live and on-demand television content from Sky Movies, Sky News and Sky Sports (Available in UK and Ireland only, Sky subscription required).
# Last.fm allows users to stream their favourite music and search for related artists.
# MSN entertainment portal provides the latest news in the world of celebrities, music and movies.
# Foxtel on Xbox Live offers 30 channels and Video on demand content for television and movies (Available in Australia Only).[20][21]
# ESPN channel allows for live and on-demand streaming of up to 3,500 sporting events (Available in US only).
# AT&T U-Verse set-top box functionality
# Hulu Plus service will offer commercially-supported streaming video of television shows and movies from networks such as NBC, Fox and ABC (Available in US only, Hulu Plus subscription required).
# Zune Pass will allow for unlimited streaming of music over Xbox Live as well as access to 10 downloadable songs per month (Zune Pass subscription required).
#Media Centre Xtender
Cable company service will be coming to XBL so you can replace your cable box. Its arguably the best media center out there and its only $199 brand new.

I often find myself spending 30+ minutes whenever I log on to just look through content.

They are trying to forcibly mould a system that primarily made for gaming into something that it was not designed for through software updates and peripherals. It lacks so many features that a proper theatre system should have (e.g. Proper Full 1080P Resolution).
