Gates Talks Xbox 2 Functionality

In an interview ahead of his keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Gates told Reuters the company would look to extend the functionality of the Xbox, the only game console to ship with a built-in hard drive and Ethernet connection. "We are pushing the boundaries in terms of expanding what people think of as what the device can do," Gates said. Last year, Microsoft released a title called "Xbox Music Mixer" that allows users to download music and photo albums from their PC to the console. Later this year, Gates said, Microsoft will release a kit for the Xbox that will extend the functions of its Windows XP (news - web sites) Media Center Edition to the console, turning it into a set-top box that allows the playback of live and recorded video, music and photos. "You’ll see us keep pushing the boundaries there," Gates said.
