ESPN Coming to Microsoft’s Xbox 360, to Feature 3500 Live Events a Year

June 14, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Another interesting revelation coming from E3, Microsoft have revealed that the Entertainment Sports Programming Network is coming to the Xbox 360, thanks to a partnership between Microsoft and ESPN. The contract will allow Microsoft to feature 3500 live sporting events every year.

Additionally, users will receive access to various ESPN3 content, such as polls, replays from games (including instant replays), as well as social connectivity with your Xbox account and integration with the console itself. It will also feature Kinect integration – and you’ll just need an Xbox LIVE gold membership to make use of all of this goodness. That means no extra charges for all of the extra content provided, which automatically raises some eyebrows – in a positive way, of course.

This, combined with the revelation of the newest Xbox 360, makes this year’s E3 better and better – especially for the Xbox fans. If you still haven’t made your choice on a console system, perhaps now is the time to look at what Microsoft has to offer.
