Here's what little I know about Microsoft and HTML5 support on the Xbox. Speaking with an Atari rep at the recent Penny Arcade Expo, they said that they were aiming to have their Atari Arcade
work multiplatform, and that includes the Internet Explorer app that is currently in beta for the Xbox 360. They were demonstrating it on tablets and desktops, but he said that it should be or will eventually be working on the 360 IE browser.
Windows 8/IE 10 are said to have HTML5 support and they're cross-promoting the Atari Arcade HTML5 platform to advertise the new Internet Explorer, so I think it's safe to say they're not against it. You can count on them doing their best to capitalize on it in any way they can though, and you'll see that ads are already baked into it.Crazyhowie2012-09-17 19:53:17
