XBox Dashboard Update Details

We mentioned the Microsoft-Netflix deal that would give XBox 360 owners access to the Netflix streaming library, and today we have more information on that as well as the fall update in general.

The Netflix movies will be streamed in SD resolution, with eventual HD support.  You will need XBox Live Gold membership to  acces the steraming movies, and you can share the videos with other gold members and/or netflix subscribers.

The Xbox Dashboard update gives you an avatar environment (whether you llike it or not), but they will spare the users the need to walk their virtual selves everywhere to do required actions.  The new look is nice, and media access is much slicker than before, with browsing not unlike the cover Flow that Apple offers on their products.  Very slick.
