    • Getsuga_Tensho

      I gave it a go and I’m not a fan of it when the Youtube app is there and works a lot better. Good that some are liking it though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.edden Brian Edden

    I’ll be excited when Twitchtv comes to Xbox…

  • Getsuga_Tensho

    Yep, same here. I’ll be very happy on the day the Twitch app releases…if it gets released. I’m not sure whether it’s worth holding my breath for it to appear before the next Xbox is out.

  • ungeheier

    LOL @ Golden Gods. Man that was a train wreck last year! I Can’t wait for this year! =)

  • http://twitter.com/GeorgeZagaris George Zagaris

  • slider2nl

  • http://twitter.com/HeyImSwat Daniel

    Bull. IE is the first app to be released world wide. Yes, it is an app.

  • ElektroDragon

    Please more apps. Long live AppBox!

    • https://twitter.com/boe2BE boe2

      yeah Appbox the fitting name for a console that does not have many games.

      • ElektroDragon

        At least, not many original IPs or exclusives.

    • lahcoe

      Surely AdBox would be more appropriate?

  • http://polskilive.pl/ Zbigniew Borowski

    What about the Deezer app?

  • avi

    awesome, i love machinima!

  • http://www.facebook.com/plunkettp Philip Plunkett

    I can’t watch the Golden Gods app because I don’t live a few kilometres to the east in the UK?
    Machinima is the first app Ireland has gotten in about a year by the way so I’m not surprised you couldn’t care less about Ireland even if I am pissed off about it.
