Microsoft to promote integration of Xbox 360 and Vista

Microsoft Taiwan is poised to market the unique cross-platform functionality of Xbox 360 and Windows Vista at the Taipei Game Show 2007 taking place from February 8-12, according to senior sales manager Grace Chou for the company's entertainment and device division. The annual Taipei Game Show is the gateway to Chinese-language digital content industries in the Asia Pacific region, claims organizers, the Taipei Computer Association.

The integration of Xbox 360 with Vista marks a new milestone for Microsoft, Chou pointed out. Microsoft Taiwan is making arrangements with over 500 retail outlets around Taiwan so they can be ready for sales promotions of the cross-platform products and services by January 27, Chou indicated. In addition, Microsoft Taiwan will be selling these products through all online shopping websites in Taiwan, Chou noted.

Your way to anti-ms...can you actually imagine that conversation ever happening and if so can you imagine it happening more then once in a blue moon?

I hate to say it, but I have my xbox 360 fully integrated with my PC and quite frankly the benefits are nothing that the average user would ever take advantage of. Now when you factor in that the majority of users are "average users" you'll see its unlikely anyone would purchase an xbox360 purely because they could connect it with their PC

Perhaps if MS really does succeed at IPTV on the 360, but even that is going to be tough

Actually one of the reasons I'm considering buying an Xbox 360 is because my PS2 isn't that great at streaming media from my PC.
