    Does anyone know if Microsoft is planning on including a full Microsoft Word experience with the new Xbox?

    I think this would be a very good idea... The Xbox could effectively replace a lot of people's desktops, especially college students... not necessarily with a full Windows experience, but with the basics such as web browsing, facebook, music playing, video playing, access to their app Marketplace, and if they had Word... but still focused on gaming and had console optimization for gaming... what else would a college student really need as long as they had a tablet? I think it would be extremely successful!

    TL;DR: Xbox One = Basically a stripped down PC that doesn't multitask, has access to Windows marketplace, has word, etc. but can do everything a PC can do except for production apps such as the Adobe suite? Is this the future for Xbox?

    :confused: of all the crazy suggestions that has to up there with the best of them. If you want word and something to integrate with it... Get a tablet. Smart Glass is their xbox-computer intermediate bridging solution.

    If they did that they'd piss off their W8 OEM's by cannibalizing their sales

    Plus MS doesn't make a profit off Xbox hardware in the first place
