    Default Xbox Live changes afoot

    Does anyone read the News section thing (forgotten it's name) on the dashboard? There's been a bunch of E3 stuff on it recently. One thing that they had was that there's going to be a whole bunch of changes to the Xbox Live/dashboard - looks like some really nice features. Full avatars which you can use to interact with - looks like they've kinda pinched the Wii people thing and enhanced it somewhat - plus a whole bunch of slicker things as well. No idea of when we'll see it, but looked interesting.

    Xbox Live is definitely something that MS basically got right first time and have simply continued to improve, as opposed to spending time fixing stuff that didn't work like some of their software! lol

    Yeah, I wondered about if it'd only be available in the US. Probably will be - sods!

    The only thing I do want to see from this next update is the ability to load games on to the HDD. You still need the disk in the drive, but it only takes the initial load info from there, the rest of the game is read from the HDD. This should mean it doesn't sound like a Jet taking off all the time

    Yep, I never understood why the didn't do that from the start! Why have the hard disk there if they didn't use it to it's full? If they'd made the hard disk larger, instead of that poxy 20Gb one, then they could have used it as a caching area for a game when it was loaded. Console would have been quieter and loading quicker.

    EDIT: The repair that they do after the red ring problem does make a significant difference to the noise. It's still a bit 'whooshy', but nothing like it used to be.

    And for those of us fortunate enough not to have suffered the RROD (touch wood!) we still have to have the annoyance of the disk spinning 10 to the dozen

    The Harddrive is a real waste in the XBOX, as you can't do anything with it (apart from rip proper audio CD's to it. Any tried typing the whole ID3 tags out on the controller!)
