Xbox 360 Features: Microsoft’s Nancy Tellem Talks Future of Xbox 360 Features

Xbox 360 Features: A lot of people are wondering what is next for the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox 360. With Sony talking more and more about its newest PlayStation, people are dying to know what Microsoft is going to do next.

Microsoft is one of the hedge fund industry’s most popular stock picks, and it’s always important to pay attention to the smart money (see just why here).

While there are rumors that the new Xbox 360 will be released in time for the 2013 holiday season, the company appears to be worried more about “the entertainment growth of its current platform.”

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)In a recent interview with Forbes.com, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) president of entertainment and digital media Nancy Tellem shares some insight on the future.

Here are two questions and answers that are sure to give people a better idea of what to expect from the next Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox:

“How are you expanding your voice controlled entertainment apps on Xbox?”

“We have over 100 voice controlled apps, which involves all sorts of entertainment partners like Hulu and Netflix and a great range of movie, TV and sports offerings. We’re adding 40 more apps which will involve the CW and other partners. We’re doing this on a global basis with apps that are in various markets.”

“How will Xbox SmartGlass technology enhance entertainment experiences?”

“With HBO Go, they tell you to go online to find out more about the cast. With Xbox SmartGlass technology this allows for this to be happening simultaneously on your device of choice. You can be watching Game of Thrones on your tablet and you can come home and throw it on to your TV. You can also experience the second screen experience on your tablet in real-time and sync to the content that you’re watching on the television. That’s the kind of things we’re working on with HBO about to really light up the Xbox SmartGlass technology.”
