Gamingbolt has been tipped off that a new 360 dashboard update is coming soon, and they have a photo to prove it.
WOW maybe there getting it ready for a NATAL dashboard!
Why is that a positive? I mean I've been using a controller all my life and I can get to almost any point on my system within seconds. While I admit controlling it with your hands is cool I just hope there's sensetivity settings or it'll get annoying, there probably will be. Also, I'm not a fan of the dashboard I'd very much like if they streamline it. It takes for too long for me to get to content. I must admit I'm fairly biased, coming from PSP's XMB which has so far been my favorite OS of consoles. Dashboard does it's job, but in my opinion I'd like if they remove about half the uneeded stuff.
Well it's not like you're going to be FORCED to use NATAL.
Will it finally allow me to put my videos from my flashdrive to the harddrive?
interesting. Wonder what it could be.
It wont allow you to do anything since you don't have a X360.
chillax, I doubt any changes to the dashboard will occur for a long time, maybe an addition this fall for natal but no real changes, improvements yes.
wow.. i was expecting some real info. other than the bloody number of the next update. >.>
"It wont allow you to do anything since you don't have a X360."
If I don't have a 360, then what's this? van-essa, cut it out with your fanboy crap. I make fun of the 360 because that's an obvious flaw. If MS said digital is the future, why can't I put my digital videos on my harddrive? I mean, I have the whole first season of Fresh Prince on my PS3.
Lol it's obvious you ran to your neighbours house and took a pic of his X360. The poor kid is probably confused right now.
Aww, you sad your mom can't buy you a PS3?
or better yet, leave them on your pc and stream them across your network. Xbox is a beast at streaming. I stream all my music from my PC in game while playing online with no additional lag With Xbox's pitifully small (and expensive) HDD offerings thanks to MS, you should stream everything you can so as not to waste precious space on your xbox HDD
no, its not. xbox is not a beast at streaming. Was trying to watch a movie at my friend's the other day and there was so much lag/buffering or whatever that it was unwatchable. Having it straight on the HDD is the best way to go if you really want to watch a movie. 2nd to using an actualy disc.
lol Agent Smith pawned.... But it's funny that I see Vanessa on damage control for 360 on every article i visit.
I dont use my 360 as much as my ps3 but for some reason the 360 doesnt detect my portable passport hdd. It works ok on my my book for watching videos though. My ps3 just does more when it comes to allowing video playback.
If you're going to do something like that, at least have an ulterior motive like I do; me an my friend have challenges to get people to do things online for game money; it's not a bet, but it's like a job the way we do it: like tick-off 50 people in one day online or something like that. I don't give a crap about the coneole war in those terms because I actually don't get paid by either company; and neither do you... ... or do you? ;)
lol, i think agent smith has just proved that its not so IMPOSSIBLE for someone to have problems with a console they own ? Some people jump to conclusions and actually make themselves look like the fanboy. I don't have a 360, doesn't mean I don't think it does alot I wish my ps3 did, don't have to own one to say good/bad things about them.
that just made my day agent smith..... lol
but on N4G, if you dont own the console, your considering a fanboy... Your right to criticize the console beings once you own it xD /s
there are normally always work arounds. but you dont seem to get the point agent smith is making, and also some people arnt able to do everything you can. For example: I am a university student, and whilst living in uni accommadation I am not able to connect to a wireless network, and I only have 1 ethernet port in my bedroom. There for there is no streaming from my laptop or desktop. and about having the stuff on usb, yes its a work around. But if your like me using them for uni now and again you will find and also having to transfer movies etc I often find myself being slightly annoyed that I am having to copy them onto the memory stick, WHICH IS WHY I normally just grab all my movies / series or whatever and stick them onto my PS3 hdd. As another person above me has pointed out its easy to seem like a fanboy on here, but you will notice if you visit the hottest threads often who the fanboys actually are. I have once been called a fanboy for stating the obvious which is amusing as i own both consoles and have for years. My PS3 died within a year of buying (yellow flashing light) and the other day my Xbox 360 just got the RRoD but strange thing is when i tried it 10mins later it was working fine again, havnt had much time to play on it though due to work!
LoL i get called out by random people saying I don't own a ps3 every other day. It's probably due to the fact that the exclusives suck and I have a great sense of buyer's remorse.... worst $300 I ever spent. If you're a pc gamer looking into a console. You'll find that everybody you know plays together on the 360. The ps3 would be worth its value if they ever announce a twisted metal game. Until then it's a pile of junk. Though it's finally being useful with FF13.
You get called out for being a moron and making moronic posts. So far, I haven't seen you prove 1 person wrong.
"LoL i get called out by random people saying I don't own a ps3 every other day. It's probably due to the fact that the exclusives suck and I have a great sense of buyer's remorse...." exclusives suck? dude the ps3 comes out with such a different variety of games you cant possibly say that... and for the past couple of years ps3 games has been getting GOTY you are clearly either only into WoW or FPS, which is a bit sad
hmm, what shall we see?
avatar game room...but thats the only thing i can think of
that with natal coming, it adds a minority report style navigation with the interface! That would be geeky and fun, especially if it used the voice of natal also to control the menu
will it be easier or will it be like a facebook change that no one really likesssss
I totally forgot about that... yeah... maybe that would be awesome
and turns pink/green/red/blue? MANLY.
Besides your comment being a fanboy complaint since that's all you seem to do, i agree with you. Why can't we change that freakin green tab color to something else? I have the Alan Wake theme which has a blackish background. The bright green "tabs" on a black background with the lights off, sucks ass. Oh and let us see previews for the themes dammit!! Other then those things, the dashboard rocks imo!
mrv321 you just go owned
NO its not manly, its magical =D And yes, we have the option of 12 different colours for our background. Which includes green. How about the 360?
Maybe it will be an update for the upcoming Lagtal where you move your hands to cycle through menus (that's about all the activity you can get out of the 360 anyways seeing as how it has no games). Be sure to move your hands slow otherwise Natal won't be able to pick up your motions.

i sometimes turn it off again realising it will take an hour just to play little big planet. It only does updates.
UpdateStation 3... hold on downloading another one
Yeah, the updates are rather annoying. The first game I got for PS3 and popped in I had an update and you cannot put it into the background you just have to stare at the screen while it downloads and you cannot play it till you update it which is pretty dumb.
I like how people dislike updates but downloading DLC is ok. Reminds me again of the case of Gears of War 2? An update fixes problems which you no doubt complained about. You have the choice not to download...
Little botties, I don't understand why you guys are getting upset trying to blast the PS3. You guys have nothing to play anyways so at least you can turn your console on for once to look at your advertisements.
Patchstation 3.0 You can never get enough updates!! @ Mooey Nothing to play? lol! Somebody doesn't own an Xbox. Go spank that small monkey of yours in a "Move" Article you cow. @ Mrv321 Downloading DLC is definitly not the same as mandatory updates on the PS3. "An update fixes problems" I guess you're saying that the PS3 and it's games have lot's of problems?
I was talking about games... for example BC2. They are not mandatory... unless you want to play online. They are the probably the same length on 360. Plug in a 360 and PS3 and update for the first time (1.0 to current) and then time it.
I just want the old dashboard back.
The old dash is still there, its just moved to the home button.
every spring & fall. Article is pointless unless you actually show new features. We already know there will be future updates.
^^^ This. This article was pointless they didn't show anything of course there are gonna be more updates but what we care about is what new feature they are going to bring.
This is actually my Xbox. I only wanted to tell the story about how they sent me a box with a development dashboard (not what the update contains). I don't need to get banned. However, at first they thought I hacked it or stole the software. I wouldn't even know how to do that.
Just felt it was kind of pointless for it to be added on this site like it was telling us something we didn't know. I completely understand you not putting something out there to where you'd get banned from Live like Hitler was.
What is funny, they sent me this console with the update and then get all huffy that I have it. Just overnight me a new FF Xbox with the 250GB drive and an extra year of Gold Membership or 50,000 microsoft points and we'll call it even. The console with the update seems to have a few bugs in it that need to be worked out. Somewhat annoying to game and watch movies on.
This might have been even remotely interesting had there been any actual info in it. Of course there will be an update coming at some point, it's inevitable but unless you have any actual info why even bother???
Microsoft has a new dashboard update coming? wow, its GDC this week, and yet its crap like this that gets approved? Someone needs a pat on the back
I just wanna hear how it's slimming down for faster loads. That would be better then any bells OR whistles.
All I want from dashboard updates are improvements to the speed and loading of pages.
Agreed! Why can't the 360 cache a list of the games on the disk? Why do I have to wait for the library to enumerate EVERY TIME I switch a game? But I have to admit, I feel more confident yanking up the guide in the middle of a loading screen than I did pre-NXE.
Agent Smith lol best thing they could do is make hard drives appear out of nowhere and turn 360 dvd drive in to blu ray drive
wait til natal gets hooked up to it it'll be even slower
1- 200 friends 2- natal ready dashboard 3- new waves and security against ixtreme pirates 4-party chat now up to 12 people 5-faster dashboard 6-sune music store in xbla 7-new codecs for video how do i know cuz i got the bash board up date in a spanish web site and yeah i cant go to xboxlive cuz of that but is worht it
If you arent lying your ass off how is it worth it? Do you have Natal right now? Can you use your new party chat r expanded friend list? No. So you fail.
fake is fake
without having to pay for the overpriced hdd case that MS makes you buy. The PS3 lets you slap in your own laptop hdd. I do agree the MS has a better streaming service over the PS3 imo. Dashboard updates don't seem really newsworthy especially with one weak photo. Someone's looking for hits?
my friends last 5 to 6 played games like on the old dashboard! WHY did they change that? It pisses me off that I cant see that without digging through the dash.
I find it odd that a dashboard update like this would have been installed as part of a console repair. I wouldn't think those folks would have access to stuff that's still in development.
it's not like Microsoft doesn't finish this stuff early.... hopefully they get back on their 2 major updates a year
Bull$hit quit making excuses for Xbox, it cant copy off a Flash drive but it can copy off a CDs, talk about behind the times. PS3 has its own issues too but this is an xbox article so Ill stick to bashing it on this one. They Yell Digital Distribution from the rooftops , but they charge a fortune for a HD and HDs arent even standard on xbox360, but they were last gen on xbox? Backwards much? The say DD is the future but their games still cost the same even though they are paying for shipping or packaging? Nice incentive Riiiiiiiiiiiight , dont fool yourself, trix's are for kids
Then how about a bit more than just a pic showing a number change? It seems it could just be a minor update.
@Agent Smith I completely agree. It is ridiculous that the 360 is over four years old and you still cannot transfer movies or music from a usb drive to the hard drive. The PS3 is so useful like that. It's irritating having to rip a cd to the hard drive every time you want to store music. M$, get it sorted and do it soon! It's funny how a company like M$ that are so restrictive when it comes to modifying their products, have the easiest console to hack on the market. Pure irony.
