Well, here we have it. Microsoft's Xbox 360 spring Dashboard update really will do everything it's been reported to (and then some). Unfortunately, those waiting for a sea change update intended to knock the PS3 on its ass may be a bit disappointed, but here's what you need to know:
  • The update hits the beginning of the week of May 7th
  • Your contact list will now integrate Windows Live Messenger, and show joinable session status
  • Messenger contacts can see what game you're playing, and your gamertag
  • Marketplace will now have its own blade, which will be skinned independent of your theme
  • Users will now get inline achievement updates (i.e. see what achievement you just unlocked and how much it's worth).

  • Low-power download mode and auto-shutdown
  • Progressive download: watch, fast-forward, and rewind partially downloaded movies
  • You can text chat messenger six friends playing games watching movies
  • Multiple tweaks on the user interface
We got a hands-on with the update, so there are plenty of shots for you to gorge yourself on in the gallery.
