Xbox 360 dashboard update: Microsoft's 10 key improvements

Not Bad, looking forward to the beta part of the update, and i hope they have many free to play titles scheduled. Played Happy Wars yesterday and even though it was stored on my Hard drive the xbox was still making so much noise, Is there a way around this? Its not a bad game either...

I didn't realise you could give feedback on the recommendations - the ones I've had throughout the beta have been entirely useless, though I've played a majority of the games on 360, so I guess there isn't much I don't already have to recommend.

The coming soon and recent releases sections are also way off and useless as a result, hopefully they'll start keeping them up to date now. My only other issues I've mentioned elsewhere are that sales haven't been promoted at all and I've missed some good deals as a result and the streaming video channel thing has gone, so I haven't been able to view any of the OXM content.

Now it's out can you say whether there's a way to view it on the new dash, Ed? Or are you getting your own app like the others that provided content (IGN and GameSpot) have?

Oh look! The games tab has moved back again! Isn't that a surprise??!!

Wait, no it's not, it's exactly what I said would happen when the last Dashboard update turned up. Surprise surprise, the one person who thought it through rather than ranting about very minor changes (which served a purpose at the time) was completely right.

Shocker that.

I'll check about our videos not appearing - it could be to do with the staggered roll-out, perhaps not everything's filtered across just yet.

I actually found them last night - there's an Xbox News (I think that was the name) tile in the featured section of the Games Marketplace with the OXM content and some other stuff (including PWNED, which I have series linked on Showcase TV, needn't bother now). It hasn't been there throughout the beta, so I guess they added it with the update yesterday; the placement doesn't make much sense, but at least it's there now.

I have been in the Beta so knew about most/all of this. Not really tried IE though and Happy Wars is ok but not outstanding (I Wouldn't buy it!)

I much prefer this layout but struggle to find some things (Deal of the Week mainly... but use the sales and specials app to get to it). Maybe OXM should do an App (like IGN have just done) No doubt it would be a lot better and much more 'gaming' orientated and accurate too! :D
