More entertainment options for Xbox 360 players
Microsoft and Walmart have announced that the VUDU streaming service has launched on the Xbox 360 game console. The launch of the VUDU streaming service supports all the cool new features of the Xbox from the latest update. Users can search VUDU with voice commands and gesture commands using Kinect.
The VUDU service allows the user to rent movies and TV shows and has a bunch of classic movies and other content for the users to enjoy. To kick off the launch on Xbox 360, VUDU is offering users a $4.99 credit on their first rental or purchase.
I really like that the Kinect is now being used to allow control of entertainment on the Xbox using both voice commands and gestures. That is much better than having to use a remote, especially for kids and adults that aren't familiar with the Xbox controls.
"VUDU on Xbox 360 brings more fun into finding, watching and buying your favorite movies and TV shows," said Edward Lichty, general manager, VUDU. "With the new, interactive features on Xbox 360 to browse VUDU's library, along with special savings like 99-cent VUDU rentals, we hope to make the holidays even more entertaining and affordable for families."
