Microsoft has just announced that YouTube is coming to Xbox Live, making millions of user-generated videos available to gamers.

As part of a fall update of the Xbox Live experience, the company will also add Bing voice-driven search that works with Microsoft’s Kinect motion-control system. You can say “Xbox. Lego” and the system will search through game offerings for all Lego games available on Xbox Live. The Bing search will help with discovery of items that might otherwise get lost among millions of pieces of content.

Xbox Live will also bring live television to gamers. The company made the announcement at the beginning of its press conference at the E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles today.
