Tens Of Thousands Sign Up For Xbox Live Update Preview
 
 

Tens of thousands of people are getting an early look at the next generation of Xbox 360. Here's a recap of everything that's now part of the updated Xbox software:

Xbox Live man Marc Whitten has written an open letter to Live users talking about everything that's coming to the new update:

- Live ESPN game streaming
- Zune music streaming
- All necessary updates for Kinect
- New family/parental control settings
- A brand new look for the system dashboard

Additionally, a couple new additions were confirmed in Whitten's comments:

- The update will provide Netflix streaming support for Canadian users
- Integration with Kinect's video chat and Windows Live Messenger

The update should begin to be rolled out to all Xbox 360 owners before the launch of Kinect. For now, it's available for users who signed up for a special open preview invite a couple of weeks ago.

"Every year we’ve pushed ourselves to deliver the best games and entertainment, and I’m incredibly proud of my team, and what we’re delivering to Xbox LIVE this fall. Our goal is to continue innovating and delivering experiences that are meaningful to you. So you can enjoy the entertainment you want, with the people you care about, in a simple way. Keep playing, keep sharing, and keep pushing us," wrote Whitten.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
