Yeah, I got the email and update Tuesday. Not a tremendous amount of changes that you notice, most are just little enhancements to features already there.

Netflix seems to be the biggest improvement, allowing you to browse the Instant Watch selection from your 360 and choose what to watch vs. before where you had to add them to your queue from a PC and Netflix's website.

And this is both a blessing and a curse (so to speak). It's great that I no longer have to add instant watch titles from my pc, but there's no way to search for a particular title.

To top it off, the party watch system seems a little weird to me. Granted, I haven't tried it too much, so I'll wait til the update comes out on the 11th before passing judgment on it all together.

Other than the Netflix update, the only things worth mentioning would be the Avatar marketplace and the rating system. The game ratings honestly don't do anything for me because I'm not going to base my purchase on whether millions of others enjoy the game, I might not like the game anyhow. And the Avatar marketplace reminds me of HOME, but with higher prices (darn MS Points :lol:), and no virtual environment to walk around in.
