Xbox 360 ’Spring Update’ Available Monday

Most significant will be the ability to chat with friends on Windows Live Messenger using a virtual on-screen keyboard or a new Xbox 360 Text Input Device, which will be available in the summer and is essentially a controller with a built-in qwerty keyboard and a new wired headset. A number of interface tweaks will also be featured in the update and when a user sends a message a pop-up window will appear allowing you to quickly send a reply. Some of the improvements featured within the update will include: Enhanced family settings features for Xbox Live communications enable different defaults for video chat and voice chat. A new Xbox Live Marketplace blade lets Xbox Live members access the content they seek—whether it is game content or TV shows and movies (available in the United States). Updates to Xbox Live Arcade allow owners to see which Xbox Live Arcade games their friends are playing and join in the fun. Xbox Live members can also compare progress of leaderboard scores and achievements directly with all friends on their friends list. A new option in auto downloads will provide access to the entire collection of free, trial-version Xbox Live Arcade games. New download controls provide access to viewing options by letting users fast-forward, rewind, pause and resume as their video is downloaded from Xbox Live Marketplace. Extension of the background download functionality will allow owners to set their Xbox 360 console to turn off automatically after downloads are complete. Switchable aspect ratio will become available during video playback (Auto to Letterbox, Zoom, Stretch, Native). Bookmarks will now be stored for each video that the user plays remembering the last location in the file as well as the aspect ratio. Video trick modes (fast forward, rewind, chapter skip) can now be used while downloading Video Marketplace content. Skip forward and backward functionality has been updated to skip to the next or previous chapter. Each video is divided into 10 chapters allowing users to skip around video content.
