PostSubject: Xbox 360 Fall 2011 Dashboard Update Coming December 6th, Confirms Microsoft   Fri Nov 25, 2011 8:53 pm

Those booting up their Xbox for another fun gaming session will find an update available on Tuesday, December 6. The long awaited revamp of the Xbox LIVE interface will include many new features. A few lucky players were selected to preview the update, but the official launch will now be available to all early next month.

Directly from Xbox Live’s Major Nelson, here’s what you can expect:

Cloud Storage

The update will include new "personal and social features." Your Game Saves and Live Profile will now be stored in the cloud. This will make it a whole lot easier to transfer your info when upgrading or swapping Xbox consoles. Before, a data transfer would be necessary.

Beacons and Facebook Sharing

A beacon will allow you to share with friends, both on Xbox LIVE and Facebook, what you’d like to play. Friends can jump in and play with you or vice versa. How about all those achievements you win? You can now easily share them on Facebook.

Enhanced Family Settings

This is exactly what it sounds like. Parents have more control over what can be watched, played or purchased on Xbox LIVE.

Integrated Voice and Gesture Controls

The update will make it easier to navigate through the new menus, videos, music and games. You can use a controller, gestures or simply use your voice to speak the command.

Bing Search

You can now search the web with style. Don’t worry, you won’t need a keyboard. Simply search using your voice. Bing voice search will be available this year in the US, UK and CA.

Live Profiles

You can take your profile anywhere. The Wii allowed you to bring your Mii to friend’s console by brining your WiiMote. With the December update, you can bring your Xbox LIVE Profile, along with your Avatar, Game Saves and Gamer Score by just logging on, no need for gamer tag recovery.

In addition to the new interface, Major Nelson said to expect more:

"Starting on December 6th and continuing on an ongoing basis through the holiday months, a wealth of new content will be coming to Xbox 360. New, customized applications for television, movies, internet videos, sports and music will begin rolling out from world-leading providers in more than 20 countries."
