2011 Xbox360 Dashboard Update
I won’t have this for at least another week or two, but what are YOUR thoughts on it?
that’s not my gamertag in the picture
From what I’ve heard/seen it’s fantastic; the further integration of Kinect looks fun, and all the new added features will make it a powerhouse system!
Partnerships with YouTube, ESPN, UFC, Hulu, Netflix, and Last.fm will further integrate the system into everything you do entertainment wise. And Bing is in there too, but seriously who’s going to use that? Essentially, it’s another step in a potato couch world. Micro$oft doesn’t want you turning off the Xbox, and they surely don’t want you using a competitors system to get your entertainment.
What I chuckle at is…computers have been doing all of this since…well forever. Those computers were made my MS. People couldn’t figure out computers, so they jumped on consoles. Now consoles do what computers do…see where I’m going with this?
It’ll also be interesting to watch how this plays out with the rumored switch to a newer console in the near future…
