Why won't you just connect your PC to your TV? That's what I do :) I watch most of the movies (DVDs) from my computer and not my 360, because my computer is on 24/7 so it would just be waste of electricity to have 360 on aswell. It's the same experience, because I have a HDTV and VGA-cable connecting the TV to my PC.

I think only US and Canada get Hulu.

Hulu has like some old movies on there and they have Naruto: Shippuden, Bleach, InuYasha, Full Metal Alchemist, One Piece and some other stuff. As well as updates other shows like The Office after every new episode

And once again Australia gets jack all other than the aesthetics. I remember when the new pricing for the Gold subscriptions came out and everyone bitched and moaned about it, but think about the content you guys get now, it should go up.

On topic, it will be nice to have a change in the design if only for something different to look at. As long I can still play my games and watch my stories, I don't care too much about how it looks.

Yeah, I've had this happen at least 5 times. For the initial update, it literally kicked me out of the game I was playing. Now it just disconnects, so I can apply the update when I want, which is how it should have been in the first place. They have been tweaking little things with each update.

Yep just had another update (lost count now :D ) but the beta blade is still there so I'm guessing the official update won't be out today unless they whip up another for today which looks unlikely :(

However the announcements in the beta blade state that the beta kinect programs will be avaliable until the 29th with a thanks for participating sign off. Could that be a possible date?

edit: I suppose it could be possible that the update could be today and people on the beta keep the beta blade until the kinect beta's have finished?

And for all the Hulu people. You do realize it will only be Hulu PLUS not the computer website basic, so expect a fee. I believe its 9.99/month

Info from Major Nelson,
We are happy to announce that Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/) will be coming to Xbox LIVE as part of their Hulu Plus (http://blog.hulu.com/2010/06/29/introducing-hulu-plus-more-wherever-more-whenever-than-ever/) experience. In the announcement today, Hulu announced a preview of their Plus service (http://blog.hulu.com/2010/06/29/introducing-hulu-plus-more-wherever-more-whenever-than-ever/), along with a series of partners of which Xbox LIVE is one of them. We’re working hard on creating customized experience for Xbox LIVE members, which means that Hulu Plus will be coming to Xbox 360 in early 2011 (http://www.hulu.com/plus/devices). We are taking the time to ensure that the Hulu Plus experience for Xbox 360 is the best on TV and like our other entertainment experiences (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/netflix/default.htm) it will not be a port, but rather a custom experience that leverages the Xbox LIVE community features.

Hulu Plus will be available for US Xbox LIVE Gold Members only.

I can't help but notice that some say the 4th the update will hit which is when Kinect hits in the US I assume and to do it on the day seems odd!

Others say they have done the Dashboard updates on Tuesday which means it has to be today or 2nd! either way I don't really care for the update coming and I'm not in the preview so I'm not missing Party Chat :)

im not saying that the new dashboard is out today, but if anyone wants to try and push your xbox into getting the updates, heres a few things to try:
*note, all these tips where used to get the update when NXE came out*

clear your system cache, run an arcade game and do the update.
clear cache then test your xbox live connection.
clear cache then select recover gamertag.

if these fail, then:

whilst signed into xbox live, insert the NXE update disc that came with th N router, as it may prompt you to upgrade to the latest version.


being as the KDU hasnt got an officall release date yet, these are NOT guarrented to work.

The new dash looks like a damn milk factory and the new website is utter shit & user unfriendly.
Where is this heading?
Nintendo and Microsoft folding hands over a new WiiBox 720..

Should have seen all the complaints in the feedback thread for the new website layout, I think only 2 idiots came forward saying they liked it, 1 was blind and the other wasn't born yet so go figure.

Microsoft never communicates with the customers, they just go ahead and do shit, completely living in their own imaginary world while pushing the bills forward.

Well the problem that bugs me about change sometimes is when its done for no real reason. Look at the xbox.com redesign. Was there any real flaw with the old website? Change just for the sake of change, especially when it doesnt actually improve anything is frustrating IMO. Extra frustrating when the new thing feels inferior, like every windows that has come after XP IMO.

As far as "alot of stuff coming out that week, an update might screw everything up" the update has to happen for that reason in partial. M$ should also be giving us a updated voice codec, Netflix seacrh and obviously Kinect geared drivers and what not.

This is a good point, updates are known to brick certain consoles. I don't think that's been an issue with the last few updates though. Besides that, having seen the new dash through the powers of Youtube, I'm looking forward to it.

Well the problem that bugs me about change sometimes is when its done for no real reason. Look at the xbox.com redesign. Was there any real flaw with the old website? Change just for the sake of change, especially when it doesnt actually improve anything is frustrating IMO. Extra frustrating when the new thing feels inferior, like every windows that has come after XP IMO.

Microsoft (or any company) doesn't just sit on their hands when things work, they're constantly updating things as their goals change. Whether or not us individuals think the change was for the better or for the worse, obviously Microsoft thought it was for the better or they would not have done it.

But why would they think that? Microsoft has been changing quite dramatically since they decided they wanted to try and steal some of the casual audience away from Nintendo, ie since they announced Kinect. Kinect has a particular image attached to it, so they're making the necessary changes so that what we've got fits that image. The changes: we've gotten a new "family center" feature, they've rebranded Silver to Free, they've redesigned the dash to fit their Kinect model which implies a site redesign as well (they changed the site when NXE came out), hell they've even altered the game covers ever so slightly with the new wave logos. Basically I'm saying that although it may not be evident to you, Microsoft hasn't made any of these changes "for no reason".

PS: Either you're crazy or you've not used Windows 7. It basically took everything broken from Vista and fixed it. Definitely an improvement over XP.

What's so surprising there? I knew there was going to be a fee.

You pay Hulu PLUS even if you are using PC ONLY. You pay to get access to more shows than their basic FREE website features. Season passes will allow you to access FULL seasons of current shows while the basic site only maintains the most current 5 weeks of episodes. That is what HULU PLUS on PC does for you.

Got an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and all that is available to you thru your TV. It's a bit like NetFLIX in terms of what you pay.

The fee isn't exclusive to Xbox. I suppose having Xbox LIVE Gold can be considered a fee.

I don't care for the free or paid version of Hulu since I download all my TV shows in HD and play them off my TV. I was just stating it so people would understand that Hulu coming to the Xbox 360 wasn't going to be free like some might of thought. And most newer TV's come with Hulu Plus built in with other features, and no extra fee like Xbox Live Gold.

That is the Kinect Release Date not the update it would be stupid of Microsoft to roll out the update to different regions at different times since once again it would be preventing party chat for someone in the UK wanting to play with someone in the US or Vice Versa!

That is the Kinect Release Date not the update it would be stupid of Microsoft to roll out the update to different regions at different times since once again it would be preventing party chat for someone in the UK wanting to play with someone in the US or Vice Versa! Never seen an update not go LIVE everywhere at once.

Yeah. The update needs to be in place by November 4th when Kinect is released. That's why I'm saying it will be on November 2nd.

If you look back, you will notice that ALL major Xbox dashboard upgrades have been done on a Tuesday morning -- going back to the implementation of the NXE in 2008.

I was hoping it was released today... I want to get back into party chat with Fallout soaking up all my time.

After using the beta dashboard for a long time now I've pretty much gotten used to it. I like the new home, I'm okay with the change in avatars, I love the new browse functions, they're an amazing improvement.

In fact the only thing I have hated since launch and still hate right now is the new guide...

I mean... really? That's the best they can come up with... it's so bland and blocky, it looks terrible in comparison to how shiny the rest of the dashboard now is. We went from nice colour scheme and rounded edges to a block of blandness...

Well that's my biggest gripe out of the way.

Now it just needs to hurry up!

Is the update the reason xbox.com has been down for the last couple of days?

Also, I'm not looking forward to the update. I'm sure MS's motivation for this is to push more product in our faces, just like the NXE but moreso. I'm also willing to bet that something else is going to happen to screw up the Avatars as well, since a lot of people has spent so much money on Avatar gear, just like they bought wall papers that were made useless in the NXE update.

LOL @ people hating on the new dashboard, there is nothing wrong with it. *Shrugs* My only beef with the new dashboard is how much more painfully bright white there is. Im hoping when one uses a bought them on it that gets toned down a bit. Other than that the dashboard changes look fine. Now the website is a whole different animal.

These guys have been FAIRLY realiable, but this was posted on Saturday and well, they're not Microsoft, so don't take this word as judgement.

I seriously couldn't care less about the update. A lot of you guys are making it sound like you stay on the dashboard all day or something. It's not a big deal.

I'm using the beta dashboard, and under the latest announcements it says all the beta features will be removed tomorrow, the 29th, so it could be then.

Don't think it'll be tomorrow, beta may be removing features but that could be for the release, Im not counting on anything until Nov 4th.

It's hard on the eyes when you first start it up, but you get used to after awhile. Once your eyes settle.

There have been a long few recently too. Expect it's going to take a good 20 mins for everyone without the beta when it launches.

Had a week off from Uni to study and thought it was public release on the 26th but now my week off is coming to an end and it has still not been released yet :( Just want my chat back haha.

I can't wait for its release. I've been getting good use out of my free night and weekend minutes and my bluetooth headset lately to talk with friends while we played New Vegas.

On majornelson.com the last line on the page is
"And when we ship the next dashboard update in the very near future, Xbox LIVE will launch ESPN on Xbox LIVE, along with Video Kinect."

Makes the dashboard More Kinect friendly, adds Netflix if you live in Canada along with MSN Video (don't know about other countries). Everything loads much quicker. Changes the layout of the Games Marketplace along with the Zune Marketplace as well. Oh and upgrades the Audio codex, meaning everyone will sound much clearer. those are major changes, there are a dew minor as well.

The background is whatever theme you're using and the green is only on the blades under My Xbox, and even then there is very little.

I really hope the beta did its job and this will be relatively bug free. Ill be a bit pissed if they force this update on us then its as buggy as their big .com remodel. If it goes smoothly though bully for it.
