Xbox-PC Connection Coming Soon?

A survey, sent to registered Xbox owners, was conducted by Greenfield Online, a research firm that has worked extensively with Microsoft’s MSN online service. It appears to focus on Freestyle, an extension to Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system aimed at turning PCs into digital media jukeboxes, although the survey refers to the product as "NewPC." The survey includes a number of questions about a proposed Xbox Connection Kit that would let Xbox owners use the console to remotely access MP3 music and other entertainment files stored on a PC. The kit would include software and a remote control for the Xbox that would allow people to access music files and other media via a TV screen. Owners would need to have a home networking system set up to connect the Xbox and the PC. "The Xbox Connection Kit is an add-on for your Xbox game system," according to literature included with the survey. "With it, you can access NewPC’s TV, photo and music functions from other rooms in your home." The survey indicates Microsoft would sell the device for $29 and could have it on the market within 12 months. Click here for the full article.
