On Major Nelson's blog today there was a fairly large announcement. It is that there are over 40 apps coming to the Xbox 360. Not all will be available from today, but there are still a handful of apps. They're all the sort of stuff that Microsoft has been courting over the last few years to try and make their console more in tune with media tastes and not just games.
Here are the apps which are going live today for US customers:
There are other apps, but each is determined by region. In the future, we should expect to see other apps such as Flixster, GameTrailers, MTV, and PBS. If you're interested in any of these then make sure you're an Xbox Live Gold member before trying to run one. As with other existing apps like Netflix and Hulu, they are only accessible with a Gold account.
Do you use your consoles for functions other than gaming?
