Today, Microsoft announced that 45 new entertainment apps—including eagerly awaited options like HBO GO, Showtime Anytime, and Comedy Central—will launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360 globally throughout 2014. The timing is interesting, given that Microsoft's E3 press conference is less than a week away. But it's clearly very good news.

"From day one, a core pillar in our vision for Xbox One has been to offer gamers the ability to play blockbuster games and seamlessly switch to the TV shows, movies, and apps they love," a new post to the Xbox Wire blog notes. "With more than 180 apps and entertainment experiences available across Xbox One and Xbox 360 today, entertainment usage on Xbox Live has continually skyrocketed."

Now that number will jump to over 225 by the end of 2014, Microsoft says.

One that Microsoft is highlighting is Twitter integration with Xbox One's TV experience in the United States. "Twitter will be optimized for the biggest screen in your house in a smart, contextual way – offering the ability to see Tweets related to the cable or satellite TV shows you're watching as they're happening," Microsoft notes. "Additionally, the Twitter experience on Xbox One will be integrated into the TV listings section of OneGuide where you will be able to see the shows that people are tweeting about in real-time."

But it's not just Twitter, and HBO GO, Showtime Anytime, and Comedy Central. Vine is coming to Xbox One in the US. And the Major League Gaming (MLG) app will bring the global leader in eSports to Xbox One in the coming weeks.
