Got the Beta invite for the new Xbox Dashboard
July 29, 2009

They've got some new features that I'm chomping at the bit to learn about. Can't wait to put the new dashboard thru the hoops.

Oh, and don't forget to download the new maps and campaign for Gears of War 2 called "Dark Corners". If you don't already have the other maps, I suggest getting the "All Fronts" DLC which has all the previous maps plus the new ones and the new campaign mission.

They're changing it again?

They're updating it with new features. Like being able to watch Netflix movies with your friends. Here's an incomplete list of the things they're adding. I didn't include all the features since some are useful, but not all that interesting:

*Party Reconnections - If a user is disconnected from a party inadvertently, they will be automatically reconnected to the party without any user interaction

*Streamlined Party Invites - Invites are now just a click away! Never again will you have to navigate through multiple screens to get all your friends together.

*Avatar Props - You can now equip your avatar with animated items they can carry around and interact with.

*Avatar Marketplace - Reflect your sense of style with the new Avatar Marketplace. Download and purchase premium items, including branded apparel from your favorite fashion labels and Xbox 360 games.

*User Ratings--How it works - Every piece of game content on Marketplace can now be rated using a 5-star system. Just open up the details on what you want to rate and chose the Rate button. Each time you press the Rate button, you add one star to your personal rating.

*Sort by Ratings - Now you can easily find great games that you might have missed out on. Just visit Browse All in either the Games or Video Marketplace and twist over to the Top Rated games to see what everyone’s been talking about.
