Microsoft's next-generation Xbox gaming console will be more of a digital entertainment hub than its predecessor, making it even more of a PC hybrid than ever, Bill Gates said.
The console, code-named Xenon, is due to be previewed in a half-hour MTV special later this month.
Gates was vague on Xenon's specific features but said the company's consoles would be evolving to include improved communications tools for making multiplayer online gaming more convivial.
The new console will let video-game players chat with their buddies, know when others are present online, and retrieve their music and photos on their consoles in an interface already familiar to them, Gates said. source
