    Xbox.com redesign goes live, beta dashboard due today



    Microsoft’s social page is Metro inspired and features spots for Xbox LIVE events, Marketplace previews, new video and game releases and more. There’s also a quick links section to show how many friends are online and how many messages you have, very similar to Microsoft’s Windows Phone gaming hub. Below the Xbox LIVE avatar, Microsoft has included some links to common tasks such as viewing your profile, redeeming LIVE marketplace codes and checking the download queue. Microsoft has also revamped the messages section and the ability to visit friends profiles to see beacons they have set for games. The rest of Xbox.com will also be updated to add other new functions to the online site. Xbox.com now features a new video section that lets users browser the Zune video catalog and purchase or rent TV shows and movies to watch on their Xbox 360, Windows Phone or Zune device.
    The update to Xbox.com is part of a larger Xbox 360 dashboard update, due to enter beta on Thursday. Codenamed “Madrid”, the November dashboard update will bring Microsoft’s Metro style interface to the Xbox. Microsoft is expected to start distributing the beta dashboard to participants at 1PM PST. Microsoft is also preparing to include YouTube and Bing on the Xbox. Bing users will be able to use Kinect’s voice recognition feature to search for movies, music and other content on their consoles. The new dashboard will also enable Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone integration with Xbox, see a video demonstration here.

    Sweet. Loving the new Xbox.com (Social) and Beacons! I can't wait to get the new dashboard today!

    I like that look better than the older one (seeing from pictures and videos). The new look while simpler, is to the point. Efficient.

    probably need a merge between this thread and the ongoing one. I like it. Fast, easy on the eyes...

    I added this thread because it covers the Xbox.com update today, which replaces MyXbox with Social and a entire new layout with Beacons.

    I am not sure if I like this update better yet. I very much liked how the live streaming video feeds were right there for you to scroll through. Now you are maxed out to like 4 boxes unless you click to view more. I also noticed that the themes I purchased are not complete now. I do not get the neat backrounds in my friends list.

    People lost their theme usefulness from the Blades to NXE too. Sounds like it will happen again
