Xbox Might Get Comcast and Verizon Cable Soon

Microsoft appears to be close to closing the deal on bringing Comcast and Verizon to the Xbox, with the console serving as a set-top box, according to Digiday.

If the reports are accurate, the deals could be done within the next 30 days. The deals would allow customers to subscribe to TV packages through Comcast or Verizon Fios directly through their consoles and avoid the dreaded dance with the cable guy.

Love it! Avoiding the $30 charge and 72-hour waiting period to get new cable installations done is simply l33t!

Nintendo Confirms Wii Successor. It’s On Sale In 2012.

Today in Japan, Nintendo confirmed the upcoming release of the Wii’s successor. The still-unnamed console will be revealed at this year’s E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles in June.

Better specs than Xbox or PS3, combining a touch and motion interface, and it’ll be on the market 2 full years before the other “next-next gen” consoles? Sounds like a winning strategy.
