    The new xbox 360 dashboard is slowly, but surely being spread over to the consoles registered in the beta. User Fudge has gotten the update, and has reported that MW3 doesn't boot. (As well as a few other XDG3 games, but Saint's Row: The Third boots fine.) Other members have reported that they have MW3 working fine. Some people even report that their copy of MW3 burned without a iHas burner are working fine. I'll update this news post, as more information is available. (I have yet to get the update, and when I do I'll report if the x360dock still works.)

    I love it, Metro design is pretty sexy. Xbox is definitely the best looking console this gen, even if 90% of the dashboard is ads.

    You need to have a Gold account to access most new features, like cloud saving or Facebook connection.

    Pardon my french, but that is FUCKING BULLSHIT!

    I love the look. I'm hoping we actually get to try out some of the services (Youtube, Fios, and whatever else) while in the Program. Regardless, megusta.jpg

    EDIT: I didn't realize the title and date of the video. . . .

    I agree.

    Cloud saving should be free (atleast 1 GB of space or 512 MB of space should be free)

    I now have MW3 and AC Revelations booting fine, both truncated. I've been flagged for a ban though AFAIK, people with flashed drives be weary. Also, if anyone plays offline and wants to give this dash a go, here's a link to install it via USB

    I love how the dashboard gets updated so often, and with some really handy features something! I'm really liking the 360 more than the PS3 the past year, it's so nice.

    Cloud saving seem like a good feature for back up saves, specially if they would have made it free.

    Very interesting update to the dashboard. So far I like how it's been done but it'll take me a bit more time to get used to it. The guide menu is thankfully mostly unchanged.

    I absolutely hate the mobile phone UI, that they want to use for everything.

    I wish they would update Windows Media Center and its ability to play mkv and only being able to have H264 encodes with faac stereo audio sucks.

    It looks, but I'm not sure if it's really necessary. I feel like I just got used to the last dashboard update.

    Then again, I'm a curmudgeon when it comes to these sorts of things.

    Anyone in UK get the update? I signed up for the beta but not got the update yet.
    Just want to know if BBC iPlayer, 4OD and ITV player have been added?

    I from Uk and I got the update as well and no I don't think those have been added to this beta. Maybe in the final update.

    Those who have applied for the Preview/Beta, make sure you go to this site to see if you are in, and if so there will be a few steps to do :

    There doesn't seem to be any new apps right now, as of the Canadian marketplace. Shame, would have loved me some tubes in advance! Oh well, less than two weeks for everything I think.

    That sucks on the trailer on the dash all I see is 4 on demand and 5 on demand. Really hope ITV player and BBC iplayer come too!

    They will be coming (although iPlayer will be called something different; still functioning the same though. Something to do with rights, apparently).

    Had the Microsoft rep in our store a few weeks ago. Really nice guy; let all our staff, even temps, put their name down for the beta. Although he stressed there were limited places and, so far, I've not seen an update.

    But BBC Player will be coming to the dashboard, and if I remember rightly so is ITV player. :)
