Fall 09 Dashboard Update
Wave 1 of the Fall Update Preview Program Officially Under Way
Written By
View author's profile

Good morning sports fans - although it's technically lunchtime in the Europe (thank fook for that, I'm starving!). A small heads up for those who signed up for the Xbox Live Fall Preview Program, you may want to check your e-mails this morning as Major Nelson recently announced that the wave one e-mails are currently on their way out.

The update on your console is extremely minimal - a couple of minutes tops, so you'll be searching Last FM and all the other new applications in no time. Fear not if you failed to get in on the act in wave one, Major Nelson says that they'll be adding more people over the next few days.

In other preview program news, according to AceyBongos' Twitter feed, Halo Waypoint will be added to the service next week, so keep an eye out for that.

If you were unlucky enough to have not got in/totally forgot to sign up/simply couldn't be arsed, then check out our extensive coverage of it here. You won't miss a thing...*resists the urge to break out the Aerosmith!*

Yes got my email early this morning and updated about 2 hours ago. Pretty cool to have all that stuff on Xbox 360 though I'm not sure how much I'll actually use any of it!

@#2 - No, it should update as soon as you log into Live. Try logging out and logging back in. Turning the console off and on.

Apparently Last.FM doesn't work for Canadians? Or am I the only Canadian who doesn't have it when I go to the music marketplace.

yes I got mine this morning :) only checked facebook out so far looks alright,

but seeing as my laptop is only couple yards away and I cannot use any of these features in-game, it's a bit useless to me.

Still October 27th for sky to come to xbox

@#9 - You can change that stuff in the settings though I thought. Check it out... I did read something the other day about it. Actually, check out the Zune link above, in the vid there is a page that talks about Parental Controls.

Facebook is probably the best of them, twitter is kind of useless unless you have plenty of followers. Last FM would be alright if you had people round and you wanted some music in the background but being unable to stream whilst playing games would be something that I would like to see in a future update prehaps.

Child accounts can't use any of the features (besides Zune Marketplace), and there is no way to change that in the preview. You can read that in the Preview Program Help tab on your Xbox. It really angers me that I have both a Twitter and Facebook account, but can't use them on the Xbox. I don't see any reason for an age restriction when you can be 14 to have a Facebook account. Hopefully there will be an option to allow it when the final update drops.

Having a child account = biggest mistake I've ever made.

(0) Thumbs Up Thumbs Down Report Comment is pretty broken at the moment. Facebook is a neutered version of it's internet counterpart. Zune doesn't have much past what's already on the marketplace. And let's face it, Twitter is completely useless anyway.

So far, this new stuff is less than impressive.

Updates that are NOT needed on the 360 - c'mon Facebook - Twitter - what it's coming down to it seems - is laziness - i don't even use my windows messenger even though it's there - if i wanted to use facebook or twitter - that's what a comupter is for - not a GAMING system - just my opinion

i cant help but think not having the ability to run these 'widgets' in the background is a bit of a wasted opportunity, unless Microsoft thought it would slow the system down or something.
Having the access to a service like through your guide button just seemed like a no brainer to me.

@#9 Maybe you should unlock your account or set one up for yourself. But yeah, you shouldn't have a child account when you're 17. I haven't got an email yet but the update kicked in last night while I was switching games. I like Facebook. Twitter probably won't get used all that much. Zune HD was awesome. I love the new layout and the HD movie trailers. works really well. Not sure if I'll use it, but its cool to have.

I'm in - checked things out a bit last night.

I'm impressed with LastFM & Zune more than I thought I would be. Listened to the Beatles channel while I was testing out the new features. Instant streaming from Zune worked quite well (fast - just seconds after clicking). Quite nice.

Twitter is meh - although I did post a couple tweets from there. Not much to the interface.

The Facebook interface is pretty nice - but seriously do not know how much I would use it.

Is it because I live in the UK? Or has Microsoft bullshitted me yet again?

Got my update around 1030pm i messed with Facebook (Neat) and looked at the zune marketplace All Hype :( Why couldn't they make the update so us the users could customize or systems? Unique friend log in sounds friend tickers going across bottom of dashboard just stuff that would make our console more 1 of a kind. Nothing upsets me more then having someone sign on right as i am finishing a race and i hear the achievement unlock and i look up and its joeblow signing off and on.

Well I got the update, the facebook is pretty nice and simple, bit slow but a much cleaner layout than the shitty website version. Doesn't seem to support messaging or the shitty facebook games but it's pretty functional other than that and why would you want to do facebook IM on a controller or play shitty games when you could put a GOOD game into the console?

The zune marketplace is pretty good but considering it was competing with the video marketplace in Australia that had the guild or red vs blue and thats pretty much it, it didn't have to work hard to beat that. Works well though.

No for australia which is an annoying and confusing omission. Also no 'whats new' section but that sounded like fluff and ads anyway so I don't mind missing that

I am kinda dissappointed with th Last.Fm thing not being available outside USA and UK. I read in a comment there are ads in the streams, so why can't we have that also if it's still being funded that way? Last.Fm was THE thing I was most waiting for and now its just A BIG Disappiontment. MS failed to deliver what they said on E3.

facebook is crap... changed my status and the whole 360 froze up and had to be re-started!
twitter is ok - much better for games news than Mr Pointyknob and Supergaytoad any day of the week!!

had mine an hour before the email (go figure). Facebook is alright, lacks features. Twitter seems useless. rocks big time, and Zune is just the Video Marketplace redone - no streaming or anything we didn't havebefore. Hopefully Halo Waypoint will rock, but if not then this is all Im really getting out of the update.

I got this too. I like the FB and Twitter. is really neat too, but I don't think you can listen to and play video games at the same time, that would have made it perfect.

Got the update this morning. rocks! I like listening to my favourite artists, but also listening to similar music from other artists. Shame you can't use it while playing games :(

Facebook, I'm not gonna use.

I made a quickie account on Twitter, and the first account I'm following is X360A. But already, Twitter has it's grasp on me. Now excuse me while I post another Tweet.

I made a mistake using a child account. Like honestly I don't agree because you have to be at least 14 to make a Facebook account,and I'm 16 now. C'MON MICROSOFT!

Ha-ha, this seems like a ploy to make teens lazier, lol. I have yet to recieve the email or update, which is sorta whack since everyone else seems to have gotten one or the other. Anyways I have a facebook, so I'll do what I have normally done, get up, walk five feet, sit at my cpu desk, and type in Better than waiting for an update :)

I got this update, nothing special it's pretty pointless you can't use none of the features in games so that's just useless! So people without the update, you're not missing out.

@91 the same thing happened to me, but I'm hoping that these apps will end up like the windows live messenger add-on. It started off as being adult accounts only but then they updated it to be for everyone.
