As Christmas fast approaches (not that time is speeding up or anything like that), there's a veritable smorgasbord of stuff coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace to keep you occupied during the forthcoming holiday season.

Highlights include the Fable III Dog Breed Pack, which is available later today for 240 Microsoft Points and introduces three new types of dog in the Alsatian, Doberman and Poodle. There's also a free Santa hat for your hero to see in this Christmas in style. Take a look at the Fable III screenshot gallery for images of the new dog breeds and the festive Santa hat.

Then there are some interesting new titles coming to the Xbox Live Arcade, kicking off with World of Keflings next week before Raskulls the following week and then ilomilo kicks off the new year on XBLA. Then you also have Dead Rising 2: Case West landing on December 27th, which ought to be perfect for some post-Xmas zombie slaughter.

Add cut price Forza 3 DLC, three free cars for Joy Ride on January 4th and a whole lot more where that came from, and you have one hell of a Christmas lined up on Xbox Live. Check out the full list of content coming this holiday season, and check out the trailer at the foot of the page for more.
