    This is good for Apple - more iPods sold.



    Microsoft will have to use DRM - does that mean that they have to licence the AAC DRM from iTunes? Or is there some other DRM that iPods support also?

    Hmmm... Just watched E3 show I downloaded.. XBOX360 looks great I have to say.. Can't wait till it's hacked.. ;-)



    Also, when they talked about integrating with your digital media, they specifically said "and we even talk to our competitors equipment" (audience laughter) and a picture of an iPod is shown on screen along with other devices... go figure..





    I beat Forbes to it... cool..

    The Xbox 360 has USB 2.0 ports. Drives connecting through USB, PSPs and iPods included, seem able to connect with the 360, so I wouldn't consider this some huge coup for Apple or Sony. It's just USB-ness, I guess?

    My question is how far this USB-ness is going to go?



    If I can connect USB2.0 devices (iPod, PSP, digicam flash card... even hard drive), why would I want to get MCE2005?



    I hope I'm wrong but I still think MS wants to sell MCE2005. They have definitely been talking up the built-in extender functionality with the XBox360.
