PostSubject: Microsoft Details More of the Upcoming Dashboard Updates   Wed Aug 05, 2009 3:09 pm

Microsoft's upcoming dashboard update is dropping in less than a week now (August 11th) and whilst some people are enjoying the small differences via the preview program, not everything is in full flow yet.

Microsoft sent out more information today laying down a little more detail on what games to expect on the Games on Demand service, as well as some of the avatar brands we can expect. Without further ado, the new details released today are as follows ...


Movie night on Xbox LIVE

Browse, select and jump right into your favourite movies from the top genres: comedy, action, horror…even a tear-jerking chick flick. There are hundreds to choose from, with many in HD.

Avatars are people too!
Now thanks to Avatar Marketplace the options for customising your avatar are endless. With an ever-expanding selection of stores, full of premium outfits and accessories from your favourite games and fashion brands, you can express yourself through your Avatar like never before. Your Avatar’s one-stop-shop will launch with a growing collection from the top names in fashion and gaming including:

•Top Brands: Adidas, Quiksilver, Roxy, Tokidoki
•Unique Fashions: Steampunk, Recessionista
•Your Favourite Games: “BioShock 2,” “Halo 3,” “Halo 3: ODST,” “Gears of War 2,” “Fable II,” “The Secret of Monkey Island SE,” “Splinter: Cell Conviction,” “Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes”
You can also earn special Avatar clothes and items just by playing your favourite games, starting with a hot logo t-shirt from “Splosion Man,” the hit Xbox LIVE Arcade title that kicked-off off the 2nd annual Summer of Arcade. And to keep your Avatars from getting bored, we’re giving them fun new props to play with; everything from a basketball to pompoms, even a mobile phone…just try to stick with nights and weekends.
