Company to integrate Kinect gestures, report suggests

An Xbox 360 version of Internet Explorer is currently under review and in development at Microsoft, a new report suggests.

If Microsoft ports its browser search engine to Xbox, it could mark the first time the home console provides open internet access.

The company has hitherto provided limited internet services to its home consoles, such as with streaming media and online game connections.

According to games site Polygon, Microsoft will integrate Kinect gestures and voice control within the Xbox 360 Internet Explorer service.

“Kinect support is not mandatory according to our sources, but the browser is said to be tuned for Kinect usage,” the report read.
