Microsoft Brings 360 To Sick Kids


Posted April 23, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Microsoft announced today a plan to bring Xbox 360 kiosks to sick kids all the country.

Microsoft and Companions in Courage Foundation are supplying hundreds of Xbox 360 game kiosks to playrooms in children’s hospitals to provide a "respite for young patients and be a catalyst for fun."

In addition to select games, movies and television content, the Xbox 360 kiosks will provide access to a private network that allows hospitalized children across the country to play games and chat in a safety-enhanced environment over Xbox LIVE, the world’s largest social network connected to television.

The customized and hospital-friendly Xbox 360 kiosks are pre-loaded with a variety of Y-rated TV programs, G-rated movies, games rated E and E10+, as well as Xbox 360 Headset and Xbox LIVE Vision Camera capabilities,

We're not going to make any snarky commentary. On behalf of sick children everywhere, Thanks, Microsoft!

Make a contribution, man.
