Xbox Live Update
« on: July 25, 2009, 06:26:44 AM »
I think the original thread with all the update info was lost recently, so rather than re-post all the info again. here are some videos from joystiq.com showing some of the new features from the Update.

The Update will be available on August 11th.

The 360's new (and improved) Netflix experience

That would be cool, from the looks of some of the vids, we'll have to pay for the majority of the Avatar clothing but i'd pay for a proper Utd or England top aslong as the price isn't too steep.

I got into the beta preview last night.  Didn't have much time with it, but the dashboard and Marketplace definitely seems to load faster.

The Avatar shop is a lame attempt to get more money, but I admit I was tempted to buy a few things.   ;)  I'm looking forward to unlocking avatar items from played games.  So far, I've only heard Splosion Man offers avatar unlockables.

Splosion man also offers 2 unlockables gamer pics and an unlockable dashboard theme.

You have to finish level 4 on single and mp modes for pics and finish the sp game to get the theme.

360 Twitter/Facebook "before Xmas"



Microsoft has said that the Twitter and Facebook applications planned for Xbox 360 will be separate applications rather than part of another broad dashboard update.

Microsoft marketing type James Halton, speaking at an event earlier today, told Eurogamer the company is targeting an "autumn" date for integration of the social networking / tedious showing off sites, but wouldn't narrow it down.

However Halton did go on to say, "It will be before Christmas." He added, "A lot of the background work's been done for a lot of applications that are coming."

We already know they're not in the August dashboard update, which has been extensively detailed and goes live on the 11th.

So there you go. Isn't the future brilliant?

My first settings change will be, don't let Facebook log in..... my first LIVE setting change was don't let MSN log in.

So annoying people popping up every 2 seconds.

Your Nan has logged onto MSN.

It's been reported that game disc installations are now taking up less Hard Drive space after the new dashboard update.

Example:  Gears of War 2 went from 6.7GB to 6.2GB.

I'm not sure why or how, but definitely good news for those that like to horde away everything we download.

Small bit of info on some of the new Avatar clothing.

The biggest change is that avatar clothing will be bolstered, as you can now snap up 'Premium Outfits' such as Steampunk wear, Recessionista (what?) wear or clothes by Adidas, Quiksilver, Roxy and Tokidoki.

There will also be avatar clothing tied in with BioShock 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Gears of War 2, Fable II, The Secret of Monkey Island SE, Splinter: Cell Conviction and Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes while props such as basketballs and mobile phones will also be available.
