Dude it's nice to go on the internet on your big screen. I say YES they should add the internet to XBL.

there no real point. Do u wanna spend 15 minutes trying to type www.gamespot.com with your controller. On the other hand if/when the 360 gets keyboard support it would be a good idea.

It does support a USB keyboard already. It has since launch. You can type all day using a keyboard and your 360 to send text messages to friends.

WOW, they should have because they should. What are talking about no keyboard support. Xbox 360 always had keyboard support since launch. I have been using my keyboard since then. I use every day, when I send messages. I use it in PSU (phantasy star universe)

Sure I'd go for a browser, cause I'd rather look at websites on my 55 inch tv.

It'd be awesome if it had one and you can download stuff from online onto the HDD. That's what I've been saying for a while though. It'd be a cool way to get songs for your 360, and movies to watch on it. But maybe next time around. Or never, probably.

anyone with the full media center hook up knows that there kind of is an internet browser already for the 360, although it's extremely limited.

What do you think Computers are for?? If all gaming consoles have web browsing, there just might not be anymore internet!

The web would be painful without mouse and keyboard support.  So id have to say no, unless support for those is allowed.

thank you exactly!!!  why is this even an issue??!  Who CARES that the 360 doesnt have a web browser?!?  So every time i want to surf the web on my 360 because im too lazy to get off the couch I have to get off the couch anyway and plug in a keyboard to do it?  Give me a break man....

Im totally with you...if you have a PC at home (which...if you own a 360 valued at $400 but you STILL dont own a PC then you need to get yourself checked and have someone put your priorities in order) then there is NO reason to have a stupid web browser on your gaming console.

You're usin a internet browser already to post here, what more do you want? A browser on the pc would be way easier to use then a 360 browser.

Yes but the support is limited to messages and minor things. But the mouse is not. Im talking about full keyboard and full mouse support which is not supported.

we should be able to download the web browser via XBL using Microsoft points, that would be great, people who want a browser would have the choice to download it or not
