Crossed wires

Scratch what we wrote yesterday about Xbox Music coming this year — it seems the source of the story misinterpreted Steve Ballmer's comments about the service.

Rather than launch new music software, Kinect will add voice chat to Zune, as a Microsoft representative confirmed:

A recent demonstration of upcoming Xbox features showcased what we will deliver later this fall on Xbox, including voice search with Bing on Xbox to locate and access entertainment content on the console. This includes Zune music which has a catalogue of more than 11 million tracks.

So there you go. Apologies for any mix-up.
