    Xbox360

    For those who don't know, or maybe don't listen to Xbox Live's Major Nelson (www.majornelson.com) The NXE (New xbox experience AKA the new dashboard) will be coming to your xbox November the 19th.

    Quick things: -

    You will be able to browse xbox.com select demos, themes etc for downloads and when you get home and turn on ya xbox it'll start all those downloads for you.
    Avatar's which are like wii characters, will be added for you to customize
    You'll be able to install any xbox game to your hard drive, however you will need the disk in the tray, just so it knows you still own it.
    8-voice chat party.

    That's pretty much it off the top of my head, sadly we won't get netflix!

    Quick preview.

    yeah i get that- but what advantage does that have over just playing the game as a dvd?

    i can't really see any palpable benefits,unless as i said,i'm missing something here. its no more convenient and doesnt seem to add anything.

    That's one of the reasons, in general load times are meant to be upto 50% faster, however one of the main unofficial reasons is, the dvd drive, other then the fans the cheap dvd drive makes a lot of noise the idea is for the dvd drive to do one small check to see if you still own the game, then power down, hence trying to make the xbox a lot more quiet, along with the new chips and new fans too.
