Play While You Download Coming To Xbox Live

The Xbox Live Dashboard WILL be receiving a massive Dashboard update at the end of May according to reports over in Germany. Xbox Archiv recently got confirmation from Boris Schneider-Johne, Senior Product Manager Xbox Platform and Accessories of Microsoft Germany. Xbox Archiv said "We got confirmation from Boris Schneider-Johne that a huge Dashboard Update will arrive at the end of may! It will feature a download manager for 6 parallel downloads in the background. He also mentions that there will be a lot more features in there but it will be a surprise and he won’t talk aboutit! The downloads will also running while a game is played." This is most certainly great news for all Xbox Live subscribers because not only does it show Microsoft are keen to push the system forward but one of the biggest problems with the Dashboard has been the inability play while you download. This has never been more apparent than during E3 as the Marketplace has been flooded with trailers and demos giving you no time to keep up. Only yesterday, whilst I was downloading the days trailers and demos, I wished I could just download more than one item or at least play whilst downloading This new feature could cause potential problems for gamers though as many broadband connections are not cut out for download while you play, at least not for a truly smooth experience. Hopefully this won’t be the case and if it does, people will understand that you can’t do everything at once. Either way, we welcome it with open arms.
