Xbox 360 fanboys people will be overjoyed to learn that all sorts of creamy goodness is coming their way with the fall console update, including:
- Play from the hard drive - copy your games directly to the hard drive to speed them up.
- Xbox Live Marketplace access from a regular interneted computer.
- Dashboard update makes game access a bit easier.
- LIVE Party allows for up to eight people to be grouped together from game to game without losing touch.
- LIVE Primetime brings real prizes to some games.
- Avatars - gamer tags evolved into gamer cards. Now gamer cards are evolving.
- Display support for 16:10 screens over VGA or HDMI
Can't wait to try this out myself. I can tell you that the LIVE Party idea will be welcomed by a good many folks. If you've ever been marooned during the launch of a Call of Duty 4 game, you'll know what I'm talking about.
