Microsoft Corporation (MSFT): ‘The Music Room’ a Melodious Xbox Addition?

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is generating a lot of buzz around its big Xbox reveal Tuesday. And the buzz is simply coming from the company being tight-lipped, only saying “lots of surprises” when it comes to the new Xbox console and its believed transformation into a full entertainment system. Obviously it will be all about the games at the end of the day, but there is much belief that Microsoft will be evolving the game console into other ares like streaming video and movies, Blu-ray discs and perhaps even original programming a la Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) or Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)Well, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) couldn’t wait to reveal some aspects of this new Xbox and its features, as there is a preview floating around about an interactive TV series called “The Music Room,” which will be exclusive to Xbox Live subscribers. The show will debut Wednesday, May 29, at 3:30 p.m. Eastern and will feature U.K. indie bands.

Each episode will be interactive in that viewers will have the opportunity to vote to determine which direction the show will take – sot of like those old create-you-own books that offered options at certain stages of the plot.

The same thing would apply here, where viewers (we would presume individually) could decide with a menu of options to take the show in a number of directions.

The pilot episode will feature Laura Jackson as host with guest Carl Barat, formerly of the Libertines. There are expected to be some performances from Barat as well as groups like Everything Everything, Swim Deep and Don Broco.

Would you be interested in interactive programming like “The Music Room?” Do you think Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will make headway in the living-room entertainment sector with this type of programming on its Xbox system? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
