hey all you Xbox users!

We are excited to announce the upcoming release of our own branded application on the Xbox 360® console. The Crunchyroll application will be available on Xbox LIVE® in English in more than 30 territories, across all six continents (sorry to all penguins in Antarctica)! Premium members can log in with their existing accounts to access all premium benefits, including streaming the latest episodes (no ads of course!), accessing the queue, searching for favorite shows, and more!

We will share more details after the app gets approved and launch date gets finalized.

Meanwhile, you can still enjoy everything that Crunchyroll has to offer via website, iPhone & iPad, Android phone & tablet & Kindle Fire, Windows Phone, PS3, Samsung SmartTV, Roku, and so much more! :)

Yeah! I was hoping that you would be able to do an app for the Xbox 360 Dashboard, and here we are.
Lets hope Microsoft doesn't take too long approving it, as this I will be looking forward to.

Can't wait.

Cool!

I know many users have been asking for this for ages. Also, did Shinji just pull an allnighter? : )

They are working on the problems. The trip to Anime Weekend Atlanta is keeping them busy at the moment, but I'm sure they will get back to you guys by next week. Thank you for your patience. : )

If you owned an XBOX 360 but not a PS3 you might feel differently.

From a selfish standpoint, I would rather they spend more time on getting HD on the Roku (as I don't own either console), but I also know that these moves will bring in more premium members, which should translate into more anime, which is more important to me than the platform I can view it on.

Actually i own a xbox. Look up my gamertag Zetzuna F Sei.

I do all my gaming on the xbox, but i use my PS3 as my media center.


I just despise the xbox setup that you have to have gold to use apps ( i have gold).

Yes it would be nice to have anime in HD on the other apps, but I honestly don't think video looks that bad coming off my PS3. Watched some episodes of Sword Art Online a few nights ago, and while they weren't in HD, they still looked pretty great on my 50" Sammy plasma.

Definitely good news for those that rely solely on the 360, though. While I'm not a fan of paying $60 a year to use things like Crunchyroll on my gaming systems, at least they'll soon have the ability.

This is really good news for Xbox users While I do game on the PS3 (and own a 360 from 2006), I just happy you're soon able to sit down and in enjoy watching your favorite series in front of your TV.

Computer -> reasonably priced HDMI-cable -> 50" TV => All features unlocked on the big screen, no extra hassle.

I suspected you might which is why I said, "...but not a PS3".

True. I'm typing this via the computer attached to my HDTV, but not everyone has such a permanent setup, or wants to hook up their notebook every time they want to watch something on the big screen, especially when they have a technically capable device already attached.

The news article states, "The app will be available in more than 30 territories when it launches", so I would expect so.
