It was announced this morning on the Major Nelson Blog that the next system update for the Xbox 360 will be officially released on Tuesday, December 6.
In this update, free to all Xbox 360 console owners, you'll see:
According to Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, in addition to all these great dashboard features, 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.In the meantime, you can get an early sneak peek of the Beacons feature right now on Xbox.com. Check out this article for a look at how Beacons work, and at other new features recently launched on Xbox.com.
How exactly is the cloud feature going to work? I'm a bit confused.
dyjado3, detailsa are still under wraps while the finishing touches are being completed, we'll have a detailed look at the new features showing how everything works around launch.
Alright, thank you!
Will all features be available even if you don't own a Kinect? I will eventually get one, but I want to know I'll have full use of contents before then.
The voice and gesture features (search, voice control) require a Kinect, TheCJWilde. Beacons, Cloud Storage, the new user interface, etc. are all available whether or not you have Kinect.
Is it going to be easy to use?

they should be able to use any webcam for windows live messenger video chat (a lot of people would look forward to that, plus it would be popular and great for the economy).
well done microsoft
Also they should add bing/google search and youtube (it would compete with the playstation3)
Finally, I have been waiting so long for this and now its almost a week away!
