Xbox 360 update – apps
Microsoft is gunning for Xbox LIVE to bump pricey, standalone smart TVs off our Christmas wishlists. And with plenty of just announced apps – and a few, like BBC iPlayer on the horizon for 2012 – we can see Xbox owners more than catered for without the need for a smart TV.
Here in the UK, anyone with an Xbox LIVE Gold account gets access to 14 new apps including LOVEFiLM, YouTube, VEVO, last.fm, blinkbox, 4oD and 5 Demand via the Apps Marketplace tile.
