Microsoft has been having a pre-E3 press event all morning and the announcements keep coming in. The latest is in regards to the infamous Internet Explorer. According to Microsoft, the famous browser will be making its way onto the Xbox 360 sometime "this fall." Kinect controls, like many of Microsoft's announcements, will be used.

"Internet Explorer coupled with the power of Xbox will for the first time deliver a fast, fluid, intuitive web experience in the living room," Microsoft's Marc Whitten said. Saying "web hub" brings up the screen that you can see above. After that, users can search the web using Bing by calling out search queries.

 

It's not clear how users will enter URLs. It's possible that they could bark out the URLs and have the Kinect interpret them or, more likely, it will make use of Microsoft's SmartGlass technology. The demo made use of what appeared to be a Lumia 900 to scroll through content and click on links. I'll be sure to get the full scoop tomorrow!
