Xbox 360 Dashboard Update Due November 17

By Chris Faylor, Nov 12, 2009 11:41am PST The "next wave of social entertainment" will hit Xbox 360 next Tuesday, Microsoft claims, as the company today dated the next Xbox 360 system update for November 17.

Among the additions are Facebook and Twitter integration, providing users with the option of perusing and updating the social networks from the Xbox 360 dashboard, along with support for streaming music via Last.fm. To make use of these features, however, Xbox 360 users will need to have an adult-level Xbox Live Gold membership.

The update also adds a "News and More" section and sees the Xbox Live Video Marketplace rebranded the Zune Video Marketplace, with support for "instant on" 1080p video streaming and the ability to watch a movie online alongside seven friends.

Should you desire video of the new features, well, you're in luck:
