Xbox 360 Dashboard and Xbox LIVE Makeover Now Live

We showed a little sneaky peek a while back, on what you can expect from Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Fall update, and now it’s live from today.

Those with internet access will receive the update automatically the next time you turn on your xbox. According to Microsoft, it will take 5 to 10 minutes to download but it will give you an Xbox 360 dashboard with a nice shiny new makeover.

Kinect support has now been added and additional features including ESPN programming and access to the Zune Marketplace, including Zune Pass music streaming will give greater functionality.

Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has given an added update regarding the Xbox LIVE’s new look…

“For many of you, the next time you sign in to Xbox Live, you will be prompted to receive the update. A couple of things to keep in mind over the next few hours as the update is deployed”

– Regardless of what you have heard, it’s not geographically based. No one area of the world will get it before another.

– If you keep signing out and then back in again, this will NOT force the update…it will only anger people on your friends list who will keep getting a notification. every. time. you sign. in.

– Be patient, everyone will eventually receive the update.

Good points? Bad points? Let us know what you think of the new update
