Well, Xbox LIVE launched their new dashboard update on August 11th, and even though they held back the social networking update, the new Netflix update is great. Xbox LIVE users can now watch movies with their friends and find new movies to add to their Instant Queue without having to go online. They’ve also added a new Avatar Marketplace, where you can purchase new premium items, including branded apparel from your favorite fashion labels and Xbox 360 games. Now the price of these items are anywhere from 80 to 400 Microsoft Points. That’s about one to five dollars. Also, they now have Avatar Props, which equips your avatar with an animated item they can interact with and carry around; one of which is a lightsaber for 400 Microsoft Points. Yeah that’s right, five dollars! I know! Who the hell, would pay five dollars for that?! You can get a game for ten dollars. I really hope no one buys it, to prove a point. But, you and I both know there are way too many stupid people out there for that to happen. Also, there is a new Games on Demand section that lets you enjoy the convenience of finding and buying new games right from the comfort of your own living room with a credit card or your Microsoft Points. I think the biggest news to come out of this update is being able to watch movies with your friends in a Netflix Party. So what are you waiting for? Go update your Xbox LIVE, and come watch a movie with Darby sometime. You can find me here.
