@lordofultima: its not a "new dashboard", but rather more features to the existing interface.

I hope I can buy those godawful Ecko Halo shirts, so that I can load up Bomberman and drop giant bombs at his feet

They are coming at the same time, it's diappointing to see so many games selling clothes rather than offering them as unlockables, but Splosion Man at the very least is the first game that offers unlockable avatar gear.  (as well as gamerpics and  a premium theme).

Well, we knew this was coming since well before Home.. But hey, they'll still be giving us the free updates, and like you said, people *will* buy this stuff.  I like the idea of being able to make our avatars a little more unique, although personally I think I'll be sticking to the unlockable rewards rather than purchasing any.  Although the LeChuck costume is tempting, and I'd love the ODST armour, Fallout jumsuit and Agency uniform..

Should be giving Jeff some ideas.

Man my 120GB drive isn't going to be nearly enough when this new update comes out. I only have 19 GB left and that's only enough for about 4 games (I'm not too big on deleting and re-downloading stuff). MS really needs to release a bigger hard drive. A 250GB or 500GB drive would be nice. I'd rather not have to resort to using modded hard drives.

I hate the idea of wasting money on your avatar, especially when you could buy clothes for yourself anyway :P
Its all kinnda full of cheap gimmicks thats i'll rarely use.

Points AND credit or debit. And the prices will be listed as actual earth money. The games will obviously be stored on the hard drive, and will use the same DRM as other downloadable content and games. Save up for that 120gb. "

Yea I got my alternative!!!  I just don't plan on buying any Xbox 360 or original Xbox games threw Live.  Also I have been starting to be very choosy with which arcade games I buy.  I didn't mind buying Arcade games when they were under 100mb but now at over 300mb I just pass usually...  Unless its something I really want.  But otherwise I have been passing on much more stuff since my 20gb is really only on its last 2gb's.  When I'm in real trouble I'll delete the 6 music albums I have on it that where used big time during Ridge Racer (man that game has bad music). "
I'm down the 300 or so megs. No music, only 13 arcade games, but a LOT of Rock Band DLC. MS would be very wise to drop the price in August to promote their new services. Or there's always Amazon or ebay. I'll get a 120gb as long as it's below $50, and even that is ridiculously overpriced compared to most other standard HDDs. I just got a terabyte for $80. Come on MS. "
Yea I have mostly stayed away from download content from band games.  Only band album I have is Deathmagnetic, and I only bought that as a spur of the moment we just got awesome tickets to the Metallica concert so I'm going to spend more money and stupidly use up over 1gb for some GH3 content that I won't play that much since I don't play band games as much as some people!!!  But yea that night we played the sh*t out of Deathmagnetic.  Sorry for you only 300mb's is definetly not good.

Woot! Can't wait for the update. :)
If the clothes are relatively in-expensive I won't mind getting rid of the extra points I have lying around.

As much as I didn't really care for the ghostbusters game all that much, it would be really easy to convince me to part with a dollar or two for a jumpsuit and a proton pack for my avatar.

Yah I guess it's too bad that the Yankees make a large portion of their profits......that obviously could have nothing to do with them catering to that market.

by "defaults to" i meant turning on the 360 without goin straight to the commercials. and dude the 360 dashboard upscales to 1080. that ain't the same thing, brother.

@MordeaniisChaos:

I hope so. I only have a 20 gig from when I first got my system. I got it before the 60 gig became the norm. It gets tediuos to install every game I decide to play.
Edited by Wolverine

Games on Demand sounds convenient but I'm not going to use it because I don't actually own the game. I can't sell it when I'm done with it so unless it is cheaper than the actual material I am not going to give up my rights to my games I buy so I don't have to get my lazy ass off the couch.

I'll be in Europe that then anyways, i wont even care.

Posted by Maxszy

Like the game download service that's happening. Though I am running out of HDD space so I probably wont be using it any time soon :-/

Posted by Zabant

mass effect eh? that saves me having to rebuy it.

Posted by SkinnyBlue

 The Games on Demand feature is pretty cool, although it's probably just as well you buy them used at Gamestop and save some cash. Nonetheless, I'll probably check it out.

Posted by Kronom

They should release a 1TB HDD

Posted by NMC2008

I would totally buy Giant Bomb avatar clothing, hookitup Ryan Davis!!! Get it hookedup Ryan Davis! Hey, Ryan Davis, you gonna hookitup? I think you should hookdatshitup Ryan Davis.

Edited by MordeaniisChaos

I want info on the "awards" I assume its like achivemenets, but you get gear for it instead of points.

Hopefully the Digital game stuff means reasonable prices on the fucking stupid HDD prices.

Posted by JoeyIA

I'll be happy if the lag in the guide/marketplace is fixed.  I'm not going to be buying anything if it takes me 4 tries with each try taking 2 1/2 minutes before timing out and my Xbox giving me some interupt error message.

It's nice to hear about someone ELSE who can't stand talking during a movie.

The idea of a Netflix party is like torture to me, unless it's for heckling's sake.

Edited by TwoOneFive

its not games on demand if you still got to wait for them to fuckin download. i cant wait for onlive.

Any news on a 200-300gb HDD?

Posted by GodzillaVsJapan

I wonder how long its gonna take to DL that Games on Demand thing hah.

Posted by Druminator

The only way I would consider any clothes is if they look worth it and I have some random left over points.

I still have the 20GB hard drive, and I refuse to pay such obscene amounts of money for one of their new ones. Downloadable games will most likely be a non-issue for me. Maybe one.

avater clothes? why not. If they have something like alex mercer hoodie, ryu ninja suit or something else as badass i'm buying

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Perhaps it won't have anything to do with the atrocious NXE dashboard anymore. One can only hope they've learned their lesson.

Posted by cikame

Oh my god, how great would it be if you put all your size information onto your avatar then when you buy clothes for it and like jeff said, have the real world clothes sent to you also, you wouldn't have to try clothes on anymore because THEY WOULD ALWAYS FIT!!!

Genius, do it, do it now.

Posted by Dethfish

Hmm, the only things I'm interested in seeing on the dashboard is the twitter and last.fm. I'm curious to see how that'll work. None of this stuff interests me that much. In fact, buying clothes for your avatar is just plain dumb in my opinion.
