announced a major update to the Xbox 360
with a plethora of new content partners for the holiday season.
The announcement means man a good thing for Microsoft, as it covers pretty much all the TV and internet tube content you’ll need. On the other side of the fence, Google on will not be so happy, as Google TV is yet to report any serious mainstream adoption.
Microsoft’s list of partners is as follows and, as you can see, Google better have an ace up its sleeve.
