Microsoft showed off a brand new Xbox LIVE dashboard at E3 which featured a brand new interface, voice control, Bing search, YouTube, and the ability to watch TV right on your Xbox 360. It seems the release date for the new update leaked from a memo to PayPal employees. Could this also be an indication that PayPal will now be a payment option on the Xbox 360?
Details have come out about the TV feature that will be included with the new dashboard as well. Several sources have confirmed Comcast and Verizon as having partnerships with Microsoft already, though it’s safe to assume more will be featured. This necessarily doesn’t mean you can ditch your cable package when it’s released because the available channels will be in co-ordinance with your cable provider
As usual with major dashboard updates, there will be a preview program. Sign ups will be soon thought no time-frame was given on Major Nelson’s blog earlier this month. We can only guess it’ll be sooner than we expect so keep a look out!
If you haven’t seen the new dashboard yet, check out the unveiling at E3 earlier this year.
