Shack PSA: Xbox 360 Dashboard Update Arrives Today

By Xav de Matos, Nov 01, 2010 6:35am PDT Over the next few hours, Microsoft is rolling out its latest version of the Xbox 360 dashboard, worldwide. Not only does the update add support for Microsoft's upcoming motion-sensing peripheral, Kinect, it completely changes the look and content organization of the system along with adding a few new features.

Arriving with the update is a dedicated ESPN hub for "more than 3,500 live and on-demand global sporting events from ESPN3.com" and Zune Music, a feature that--when coupled with the premium Zune Pass--gives players "unlimited, on demand streaming of millions of songs."

Some new content, is only available in select regions. Both aforementioned additions require an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

As previously reported, the update will also include improved voice chat quality over Xbox Live, a Netflix application for Xbox 360 consoles in Canada, and the ability to search through the complete Netflix library, directly from the console.

For a complete list of changes, head over to Major Nelson's blog. Also, don't bother turning your console on and off to force the update, Major says that won't work.
