New 360 Goodies


July 14, 2008 01:25 PM PST

Lots of new 360 goods announced today. Direct download of games to HD, new dashboard, 6:10 support, new resolutions, web live marketplace purchases and of course the sweet Netflix support.

This is the product that just keeps giving. Man I'm glad Apple didn't make this thing - they'd charge you another 30.00 for each semi-annual upgrade.

Xbox Live is made of 100% win.

Me likey, although I wonder if they still have trouble with some of the codecs like h.264 with 5.1 audio.

The Netflix thing is good news. It never happened with Tivo, but this makes the 360 pretty attractive. Especially if we can download, rather than stream movies through netflix (I'm thinking full HD content may not stream well).

Oh, and faster COD4 load times for the win!

Oh, and those new avatars are probably going to look reaaaaly lame unless you pay for some "cool" accessories.

It is confirmed that Netflix streaming through the 360 will be in HD! That is a bit of a surprise. It may even be exclusive to the 360. Given that I've already had success streaming HD from sites like, I think this will work fine for those with fat pipes.
