June 6, 2011, By Christian Davis

If you’ve been having problems finding your non-videogame related entertainment on the Xbox 360, then your problems have been solved. Showcasing yet another way of implementing the Kinect into your daily usage, players will be able to navigate through music, movies, and TV through the Kinect’s voice chat capabilities.

All you’ll have to do is say “Bing and X-Men.” That’s it. After the newly implemented Bing search engine finishes well…. searching, everything X-Men related will show up. Music, TV, Games, Movies, etc…This works with all the different forms of media that the Xbox 360 offers.

“This is an incredible time of growth and innovation for our business leveraging technologies that see us, hear us and connect us all together,” said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “This year by bringing together the power of Kinect for Xbox 360 and the intelligence of Bing, we are transforming how people enjoy entertainment.”

Along with the new functionality, Youtube will now be available on the Xbox 360. With Street Fighter Third Strike and Modern Warfare 3 having Youtube functionality, gamers will be able to upload their funny moments and watch them immediately after.

This and many other updates will be rolling out this Fall. Stay Tuned….literally.
