Video tour: Xbox 360 Fall 2010 Dashboard Update

Joystiq writes: Join us in our video preview of the upcoming Xbox 360 Dashboard update.

While Microsoft keeps the Kinect component under wraps, we've got plenty to show you: there's the promised ESPN content, updated Netflix functionality (now featuring "search") and, of course, the new Dashboard UI. Oh, and Avatars are looking a bit different and sporting some new features.

Or block a 3rd party controller or remove a feature or freeze your games or not add any feature or will need to be patched with another firmware in 2 weeks that do all the above. . .again

masterofpwnage2966d ago

And this has to do how it looks in what way. Your just staying problem. I can counter that with 360 defaulty ass hardware, but nah.

WhittO2966d ago

The 360 doesn't need an update to brick itself...

SoSLy2966d ago

no need to get all pissed like that bro, just chill

paintsville2965d ago

The dashboard needed a refresh. It's been a while. Unlike Sony Microsoft doesn't update that often. It's about time for a change.

I really like it, it loads the tabs and achivements blazing fast.I don't know what to think of ESPN update though, there for those who like it I guess.

StanLee2966d ago (Edited 2966d ago )

I like it as well. I don't think it's bland. It's pretty sleek. Looking forward to ESPN. It's possibly the only think I still watch on television. Add the Food Network and I'd no longer have need for television.

darthv722966d ago

what would you watch your 360 on if you didnt have a television?

HydraxFFx2966d ago

I'm with you for adding the food network lol. ALACUZINE.

MorganX2965d ago

I like it as well. Minimalist, clean, easy to see info, FAST. I didn't have a problem with NXE before but this is clearly faster. Get first screen on games faster, and streaming DIVX begins streams faster.

Love the Netflix search, but I prefer the old netflix tiles. Can't have it all :/

I wont get Kinect so i will miss somethings but never mind the Dash looks insane i hope there´s some Fable 3 or Black Ops theme to put with it.

Hallmark Moment2966d ago (Edited 2966d ago )

I'd be surprised if you actually own the 360. The dash update is for all 360's you don't need Kinect! why even mention what you will or will not buy? LOL

I clicked agreed though the dash is nice

gamingdroid2966d ago

I can't wait to try out the Beta Dash today!

It's not up yet!?

SoSLy2966d ago

i heard you can control the new dash with Kinect, maybe thats why he mentioned it..

MorganX2965d ago

He prolly mentioned it because much of the "new" features are Kinect related. I'm not interested in Kinect for games, but uploading vids, the video chat, maybe one day. But not soon.

wat6342966d ago (Edited 2966d ago )

Cant wait for the open beta to take place. Though that Grey bar at the bottom has to go.

YoshiMeetsU2966d ago

Yes! Why did they have to keep the biggest complaint about the dashboard visually?

I've given up trying to give any input to MS and the 360 through various channels, they just don't listen and don't seem to give a flunk. They were a lot more open to input at the start of this gen.

So ugly and such a "screw you" to all the people who spend real money on the themes prior to the NXE. MS just took that money, spat in our faces and ran.

The Xbox Empire2966d ago

You act like they care about your one little opinion lol, they dont. They do whats best for the console....and what is possible for them to do

BigKev452966d ago

Where's the open beta, MS?

Paralex2966d ago

Expect them to answer you soon.

Hades13372966d ago

This is the open beta, you had to sign up for it.

Theoneneo812966d ago

I did I have yet to receive the update
