Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and Xbox 360 to Provide Unprecedented Digital Entertainment Experience Throughout the Home From Microsoft’s Press Pass.
“Inclusion of Media Center Extender technologies in Xbox 360 represents Microsoft’s latest effort to provide consumers with seamless access to the same great experience provided in Media Center Edition PCs on any TV in the house. The Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 experience will be accessible on Xbox 360 systems by pressing the green button on the new Xbox 360 remote control. And, for the first time ever, the extender technologies that are built into Xbox 360 will enable customers to enjoy high-definition entertainment. For example, Xbox 360 will let players stream high-definition TV and movies stored on Media Center PCs, allowing them to watch a high-definition sports event while they chat with friends in other parts of the country who are watching the same game. Or they can receive a friend’s invitation to play a game while watching live television.”
