  • With Regards to the MS rant in this episode, I pose a scenario. The rumors of an HDMI input in the Next XBOX bring up some interesting opportunities. Imagine the XBOX being an overlay to your TV. Garnett talks about getting home and immediately turning one of his consoles and wants the consoles to be input 1.

    Well, imagine if the Next XBOX allows you watch TV. Maybe if an ad for a movie comes up and you could hit a button and immediately switch to the movie on netflix or buy tickets for the next showing.

    Maybe your watching a movie and an ad for the new Madden comes up. You click a button and purchase it and you can begin playing it in 5 minutes.

    You're watching an episode of Game of Thrones and you realize you missed an episode. Without switching to another app you can go back and watch the episode you missed.

    Imagine you can just hit a button on your controller and switch to a game without changing the input in your TV.

    Look, I'm a gamer first and I want to see this a game machine first. But at the same time, a box that can bring movies, music, next-gen games and TV together into 1 input and have all of that one button away can be a very powerful story to tell. I for one am very excited at the possibilities.
