Xbox LIVE Update coming Nov. 17th

 

I know some of  you are already enjoying many of these features through the Preview Program, but I am happy to announce that the next update that contains Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and Zune video will be available to all Xbox LIVE members launch Nov. 17.

    I’ll never use these features but it’s cool there coming to the dashboard. More power to the users who will actually use these features.

    LastFm is about the only cool thing since I rarely use Facebook and Twitter, but those who like that will enjoy it.

    Awesome. I’ve really been enjoying Last.FM on my console. Glad to see it finally releasing to the masses.

    I’m using the features all the time..🙂 I’m looking forward to when LastFM is coming to Norway🙂 But Facebook and Twitter is brilliant.

    One sidecomment though.. I would like to have the ability to send messages and read my inbox on the Facebook app. And maybe an inline/offline friends list. Except that, I love it🙂

    Will this include the launch of the music game stores on the dashboard?

    I have had the preview for a while and it’s nothing to shout about.
    Facebook is pretty basic in it’s functions and Zune is just a huge annoyance when you have to wait for it to load before you can view the content on your hard drive or browse the video marketplace.
    Last FM is probably the best feature but seeing as you can’t stream it whilst playing single player games it’s pretty limited too.
    And as a final thought all these addons make the dashboard seriously cluttered.

    How about an update that allows party chat in MW2.

    LastFM doesn’t work for me (Germany)😦 Hoping that will all change! Why tease me with the option and allowing me to login if it won’t let me play songs😦

    Never used Twitter/Facebook/last.fm, so I doubt I will on my 360. I really wish they would just add a internet browser, though.

    @Danshadow9 Thats IW they are the ones that put that in the game. I don’t think MS has any control over it. I hate it too, it really makes no sense.

    @Danshadow9 and @Xclusivekill3r IW put that in to cut down on people calling out where people are once they are dead. It was a cheap way of getting the upperhand on a team that isnt in a party with all 6 players.

    i am in the preview, and never got last.fm with it. from reading here it sounds as if some did some didn’t…

    I just hope that when the update does launch that My xbox will get Last.fm, as with everything else M$, Canada gets the shaft (Zune, Zune Marketplace, original video marketplace etc.).

    The best feature no one’s talking about: Now video content you buy on Xbox Live can be shared with your PC using the Zune player software. Like iTunes, you don’t need to have the device to download the free player software.

    @moocow21. Have you tried browsing on the PS3 or Wii? It’s awful. Consoles just aren’t meant for it.

    “the next update that contains Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and Zune video will be available to all Xbox LIVE members launch Nov. 17.”

    So you’re saying Last.fm will be available to ALL xbox live members 11/17??

    Because this lack of last.fm is complete ISH! They told us worldwide, and now it’s US/UK, so which is it Major? And if it’s not worldwide, then why? It’s not because of licensing(it works on my pc, located IN canada)

    Facebook function is developed bad, my PDA (Windows Mobile) version has more and more functions.

    I would like to see the ability to update Twitter from within a game. Sort of like you can send a message while you are in the game. Also, it would be helpful to integrate the photo side of Twitter, like Twitpic adn yfrog, so that you can view pictures posted by your friends on Twitter.

    @atheistcanuck those who really used party chat for that will just resort to different means, like VoIP or TeamSpeak.

    Microsoft adds functionality and then it gets taken away, plain stupid.

    I didn’t try the update preview but i know that i’ll never use facebook or twitter at all,in fact i really don’t want everyone’s on my facebook friend list to know what game i play,how long,ect.There’s already too much privacy concerns with facebook,and if we added a console link to my xboxlive account, im concerned.But the LastFm feature sounds like a very interesting feature,i just hope there’s Heavy Metal,Rock and Hip Hop.I don’t want pop rock,pop music,or country music only,and please tell me lastfm ain’t full of ads.NBA Live 10 have so many advertisings it’s very annoying.Sorry for my poor english,but im sure you understand me.

    Major, I am not in the preview program… are the folks who *are* in it under NDA? And if so, when does that NDA get lifted? I’m curious as all get-out, and those folks have had plenty of time to poke and prod the service, so…

    I want something really worth while, this and the Sky Player are all stuff I’ll never use on the 360..! All the ideas they’re coming up with recently would be great if PC’s / Laptops didn’t exist, but sadly they do.

    Where’s the free Joyride game for Gold members too?

    I’m in the Preview Program and I can’t find The Guild in Zune Marketplace and don’t seem to have any way to get to the classic Video Marketplace to download it.
