As far as I can see here there is one bad idea, and one idea I’m not quite sure about.
Microsoft, via MSN wants to revive the TV show Heroes. That’s probably a bad idea. That show got old and weird after a great first season. But running a high end TV show with decent production values to promote the multimedia capabilities of the Xbox? That might actually work.
According to TV Line, sources state MSN is interested in relaunching Heroes. I remember the tremendous buzz that show had when it was first shown. I also remember everyone getting really confused and tired of it towards the end. Talks are apparently in the preliminary stages, which means… nothing really in the grand scheme of things. But still, interesting to see where Microsoft’s focus is for Xbox LIVE. On TV.
