Microsoft (MSFT +0.5%) will launch interactive TV shows for Xbox Live this year, says studio chief Nancy Tellem. Tellem, formerly the head of CBS Network, suggests Kinect integration will be part of the package. Meanwhile, interactive entertainment chief Yusuf Mehdi brags the Xbox installed base is now at 76M, up from 70M in September, and that the Kinect's base is at 24M. The remarks come as rumors emerge the next Xbox will support multitasking and Siri-like voice control, and will require a Kinect to function. (Xbox set-top)
