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

masterofpwnage3332d 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.

WhittO3332d ago

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

SoSLy3332d ago

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

paintsville3332d 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.

StanLee3332d ago (Edited 3332d 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.

darthv723332d ago

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

HydraxFFx3332d ago

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

MorganX3332d 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 Moment3332d ago (Edited 3332d 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

gamingdroid3332d ago

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

It's not up yet!?

SoSLy3332d ago

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

MorganX3332d 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.

wat6343332d ago (Edited 3332d ago )

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

YoshiMeetsU3332d 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 Empire3332d 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

BigKev453332d ago

Where's the open beta, MS?

Paralex3332d ago

Expect them to answer you soon.

Hades13373332d ago

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

Theoneneo813332d ago

I did I have yet to receive the update
