Here it comes, folks, the next big Xbox LIVE update. An official release has finally been given for the upcoming Dashboard changes -- in two weeks, on December 6 -- and Major Nelson was eager to share some of these new features.
If you happened to be in the Xbox LIVE Preview Program, then you probably already saw all this, but for everyone else, check it:
- New personal and social features including Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile
- Beacons and Facebook Sharing
- Enhanced Family Settings
- Integrated voice and gesture controls across the dashboard and in apps
- Bing voice search (Available this year in the US, UK and CA)
In addition to the update on December 6, more content will be added throughout the "holiday months." This included customization apps for TV, movies, sports, music, and Internet videos, from providers across 20 countries.
