Rumor – IE coming to 360 with Kinect controls

A source close to The Verge has told the site Microsoft is bringing Internet Explorer to Xbox 360 with Kinect capabilities. The firm is supposedly testing IE 9 on the console now, and upon release it will have Bing voice search integrated for media-only results, while the browser end will allow users to surf the net while sitting in their living areas. Kinect support won’t be mandatory, according to the source, but since Kinect has been heavily integrated into it, users may wish to at least try it out. If true, and not far-fetched in the slightest, look for Microsoft to reveal the tech at E3.
