Newsbrief: Non-game entertainment consumption on the Xbox 360 is on the rise, and Microsoft is happy to embrace it. The company announced today that over 40 new apps will be added to the console over the next several months.

The addition of big-name apps like Flixster, MTV, Napster and GameTrailers comes as part of a push to make the Xbox 360 the entertainment hub of choice for families. The full list of apps and regions can be found on Major Nelson's blog.

In a continuing trend for Microsoft, non-game entertainment consumption via Xbox Live increased significantly during November, up 43 percent compared to last year.
