That's funny, history comes full circle. I used to run XBMC on the original Xbox, its pretty crazy how far the software has come.

Should make it through approval since they already let Plex through.

Amazing what open source projects can accomplish.

Great news. Been using Kodi for a long time now. Too bad there's no ETA on when it arrives on Xbox one though.

Very exciting, I've been meaning to repurpose a few HTPC's. The question is if it will support bit streaming lossless audio.

I can see it being a forked version of what it should be. Hope I'm wrong.

If it was in the store, maybe it will be 360 compatible. Would be able to dust off my old unit and use it for something other than a lamp stand.

As a PS4 user i'm a little jealous. XBMC on the original modded xbox was the thing I used to play internet downloads. It was awesome. I use Kodi from time to time. It does weird stuff, like the NHL Gamecenter App on Kodi works better with a paid subscri[ption than nhl.com does. There's some cool apps people have developed for it.

At a minimum I wish it would be on the ps4 just to play cd's :)... lol. I know cd's are old and archaic but I have quite the collection, and sometimes I feel like listening to one I haven't ripped to FLAC yet. The PS4's bluray drive can read cd's, but they never included software to play them (ie you can view the contents of a data cd, but there's no software for audio cd's). I suppose XBox's do that right out of the gate anyways, but maybe Sony could include Kodi too :)

It seems to me that the ps4 does better at focusing on games (and better exclusives) but Microsoft does a little better at the non-gaming stuff.

Exactly this part, if there is no cinavia, and isn't watered down kodi this could be an Nvidia Shield TV killer

Youtube is available for the PS4.

I don't think its so much that Sony blocks apps. You need a PS4 devkit to push apps on there and it costs $2500.00, that's probably the real barrier for a lot of open source projects.

How is this going to work though?. KODI is filled with copyright infringement. There is no way these huge corporations would just allow that to happen.
