According to Engadget (as well as others), it appears that the Xbox 360 is going to get IPTV support.
This is extremely important because both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 want to be the center of your living room. And while both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 have multimedia and hi-def support, neither one is really ready to be the center of the living room. The Playstation 3 is as much a multimedia device as it is a gaming device so it was a little closer from the get go. But the Xbox 360 combined with Xbox Live has one of the best online market places to ever hit a console system. So, as you can see it could be touch and go for a while.
Still, the addition of IPTV to the Xbox 360 is going to put Microsoft and the Xbox 360 ahead of the “center of the living room” title bout. I am anxious to see what Sony has planned long term for the Playstation 3 and also to see if they will follow through.
