You'll be able to control your Xbox 360 from your Windows Phone

Here's a fun perk coming to Windows Phone for you Xbox 360 gamers out there: you'll soon be able to control your console from your phone, at least the video/entertainment aspects of it.

No, your phone won't be turning into an Xbox controller, at least not yet. But you will be able to use it as a remote of sorts, using an app called Xbox Companion. It'll let you access the Xbox Live Marketplace, presumably letting you set up downloads on your console from afar. It'll also act as a remote control for when you're watching video. Sounds pretty cool!
