360 Dashboard Update Detailed

The Fall Xbox 360 dashboard update has been revealed to our colleagues at OXM from Microsoft and it’s looking very good indeed with gaming classics and films on demand.

December 4 is the date you’ll need to watch out for; that’s the day you’ll be able to download and play Halo. Yes, Halo as in the Xbox game, through Marketplace, on your Xbox 360.

Microsoft is introducing games it has published for the original Xbox on XBL Marketplace, with the eventual plan to bring as much of the back catalogue across as possible.


Games cost about 1200 Microsoft points (about ten quid), which according to us puts them a little over what you’d pay for them second hand.

The initial list of downloads includes Halo, Fable, Fahrenheit, Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex and Burnout 3. All good then, apart from maybe Crash.

And if that wasn’t enough, films on demand, though not confirmed for the December 4 date, aren’t far away. Studios such as Warner Bros are potentially lined up for the service, so we can look forward to films such as The Dark Knight, The Assassination of Jesse James and I Am Legend appearing eventually.

 



Films will cost less than a fiver and come in 720p resolution. You have 14 days to start watching a film once it has downloaded. Once you started watching a film, you have 24 hours to finish it. After that, the film deletes itself from your hard drive. It’s basically an online rental service then, like the US Video Marketplace.

What do these new additions mean for the future of Xbox Live Arcade? Does the PS3’s PSOne download service now look horribly dated? It’s going to be an exciting 2008 in the download space, for sure.
