Xbox getting Kinect-powered dashboard update, coming Fall 2011

Microsoft announced during its E3 2011 press conference that a brand new Kinect dashboard is headed to the Xbox 360. The Kinect will soon be able to control the entire Xbox experience using voice commands, with an onstage demo showing a user accessing games and music with simple voice commands.

New content will be added, including support for YouTube and Bing, both of which allow search via voice commands. Live television will also be added. The "new Xbox experience" -- the NXE 2.0, if you will -- is scheduled to launch this fall.
