Microsoft Still Waffles over Pika and Media Center Extenders (MCX)

May 29 2007

I couldn't agree more with this article. I think the lack of choices other than the 360 make Microsoft look interestingly selfish. Now, knowing some people at Microsoft, I can tell you they assure me that it's been technical problems working with partners, but's tough to convince others when the only extender comes from you, and it happens to cost $300.

CE ProHe lauded the experience of extending Media Center throughout the house via Xbox 360s, but conceded, "Whilst any child would love that, it's probably not the best experience. ... Major CE companies are coming out implementing Extender capability within CE devices, so there won't be a need for the Xbox 360 to make that come to life."
