Web browserless 360

Those who wish they could surf the web on the 360 will have to stick to their PS3 or computer as Microsoft gave the reason "poor web experience on TV".

According to Aaron Greenberg:
"We really believe that the web browsing experience on TV is a poor one. The real magic is to take those web experiences and optimise them for the living room. That's what we did with Netflix. So, sure, you can go on the PS3 and go to Facebook and try to navigate, but it's an absolute nightmare. No disrespect, there's things I love about the PS3, but that's not one of them. We want the online experience to be fun and optimised for the living room, and we'll continue to add more applications to get more richness."
Okay, I don't own a 360, but poor web experience on a TV is definitely not a good reason. It's quite questionable if I say so myself. Then again, I think most people buy an Xbox 360 just so they can surf the web.
