I was expecting more from this update; oh, well. Those props are a little pricey, though. M$ knows I can't resist buying the forever useful rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle.

It's not up yet, is it?

QQ Work damn you!

Brad, you should've bought the mini-Warthog!  LOL

Great Quick Look!

Posted by Treythalomew

The xbox website is wrong when it comes to the veteran thing. It shows me as a member since 12/08 but on the dashboard I have a 5 next to my name.

Posted by Scooper

No sound on the first bit. Wierd!

What the hell are they selling now. for real

Posted by CoinMatze

So, I guess Brad won't be pulling a Brad in this one.

I got into the "preview" last night. Kinda disappointing. There isn't a single feature that I'd ever actually use. I guess the game ratings thing is okay, but I've got other sources to help me figure out what to buy (hint: one of them is the site I'm typing on right now).

Come to think of it, if they're going to do a quick look of an update this boring, why not do quick looks for Wii/PS3 firmware updates?

nice...hey, any1 knows who this serious prof. guy is? http://www.gamespot.com/users/AaronThomas/video_player?id=diRnkDur5b4EuDTY

Looks pretty cool.

Posted by Leadcat

Vinny's right, that is a pretty sweet wallpaper Brad!

Posted by MeatSim

Stuff seems a little more expensive then it should be but lot of the new stuff looks cool.

Brad's Xii needs sideburns.

The "improved playback" feature makes it so that if the stream needs to re-buffer, it does it faster and without kicking you back into the Netflix lobby screen. The video just has a brief skip (like you are watching a scratched DVD) and then it keeps going.

it ended in the middle for me....

$1 for an avatar t-shirt?


NO F'N WAY.

Wii and PS3 updates typically don't add anything.  This at least added a whole load of new features, even if you're not very interested in them.

There's not very much I care about here either, I think the avatar marketplace is a nice idea though, having more ways to customise your avatar is always good, and the clothes aren't too expensive.  Props are a little too much though and at the moment, there's little use for the avatars, but that seems to be changing rather quickly.

Biggest improvement I've seen is the speed of the dashboard, particularly after todays update.  No more lag while loading friends lists or marketplace, everything is instant.  Finally.  Oh, and the option to turn off auto-renewl of Gold accounts is fantastic, having to call customer support was a nightmare.

I'll waste hella money on Halo clothing for my avatar... 

EDIT: I'm totally buying that mini 'Hog, hell yes!
Posted by Maxszy

Not a bad update at all! Really looking forward to the back catalog 360 games, hopefully those get added soon!

Posted by LordKorax
@Treythalomew: It looks like the website is incorrectly basing the date on the last time you renewed your membership. I have a similar result: I renewed last September (which is reflected on the site), but I've been a member for about 4 years (which shows on my Dashboard).

brad your voice is so sexy

Edited by KEITH1437

If they could get me a crowbar for my avatar, that would be great.

Posted by TwoOneFive

Still looks like  a complete rip off of the XMB.


Anyways, this will undoubtedly cause thousands of 360's to brick. 
Posted by floodiastus

Come on, give us MKV support already, been waiting for it since the 360 release now!

Posted by MatthewMeadows

Wow, that stuff is expensive.

Posted by AndrewB

Are they going to keep all the data like game ratings after the beta?

Posted by Vinchenzo

If only Vinny would stop talking. I'm busy enjoying Brad's voice.

Posted by CitizenKane

It was definitely a bummer not seeing the spyglass at the end.

Edited by WulfBane

Yeah!  A Brad QL where he doesn't die!

Also loving that you can actually browse Netflix stuff not in your queue from the 360 itself.

Edited by jakob187

POWDER BLUE!!!  JESSICA BIEL BOOBIES!!!  WHOO-HOO!!!  TOTALLY NETFLIX: TOTALLY PARTY!!!  Also, Brad...if you haven't seen Gabriel yet, you should watch that.  Excellent flick with a great story behind its production.

Posted by Meltbrain

Hey that looks alright for a smallish update. Some good minor improvements and such. Really, really not impressed by the pricing of the clothes though. No way in hell I'm paying anything like that on a regular basis for clothes. I might just splash out once for the R/C Warthog or something and call it a day for that stuff.

Posted by SithToast

Yeah, that wallpaper is pretty awesome. I WANT IT

Posted by Dpower94

Woot! Jeff's playing The Bigs 2! I was wondering when someone on the GiantBomb staff would get into that...

Posted by IrradiatedTurnip

Major bummer that the spyglass didn't seem to appear in the party view.

Posted by MaddProdigy

Is it gonna spray? haha epic suspense ftw, thanks for the update on the update

Posted by Hector

I like the new Avatar Marketplace.

Posted by Winternet

Vinny, go have a 12 hour sleep, man. You need it.

Posted by Pinkshley1

Boy... who guessed the avatar clothing would be overpriced...

Posted by Tuggah

Brad has been watching Party Down. W00t!

Posted by AndrewB
@WinterSnowblind: I don't even own a PS3, so I feel weird defending it, but there are have been a number of PS3 firmware updates in the past that have added significant functionality (the xmb in-game update, for example). I'd agree on the Wii front, though. Not really much to see there. It's mostly a tweak there.
Posted by MyNameIsJoe

video doesnt show up for me...

Posted by DJ_Lae

The avatar marketplace is neat in concept but holy shit are the prices ridiculous.

Posted by mrcraggle

I got an e-mail from MS to say I got into the preview but annoyingly my 360 bricked the day before it was released to the public :/ (also out of warrenty)

For people saying this is a minimal update, just think how even more minimal it is in Europe where we don't even have Netflix. I like the idea of the avatar marketplace just so people can look more individual but the prices are rediculous. You can buy a track in Rock Band for the price of most of these props and have way more fun especially considering you're basically advertising if you buy something like a Halo T-shirt.

I wish you guys had looked at the now named Indie Games section just to see if anything has changed. There are some great games in there but it's just being filled with so much crap like ball massagers, clocks and junk but hopefully the new rating system will really help the good games that have gone under the radar become more noticed. The new pricing system helps as 200 points seems a lot for some of these games where I'd gladly buy more for 80 or 160.

Edited by Trilogy

The avatar rewards seems very cool but the bought items are WAY too expensive. You should get a whole pack of themes clothes and items for a dollar. Not to mention how ironic the "recessionista" clothes cost money.  I guess it doesn't really matter since I would never buy any of that stuff anyway.

Posted by Creamypies

Yeah I got access to this a couple days ago. The marketplace seems waaaaay overpriced.
