~You can buy (with MSpoints) more customization items from games and stores for your avatar to wear.
~You also can purchase mini props (the remote control Warthog from Halo for example).
~An add-on that will probably slow your Xbox down is the ability to unlock more items by playing more games.
I just think that it will slow your xbox down because of how many games are actually out there... and they will all be on your xbox in a matter of a few seconds. One other problem: What about the games that will be released in about 5-10 years eh?! ...moving on...
Games on Demand:
~As a new feature, you can download ANY game, 24/7 directly on your console from the dashboard.
One problem: The 120g hard drive is still over a $100 bucks and I don't think people want to waste that much money in these economic times for a game they probably hardly play. Plus, not many kids (like myself) have time to get a job to get the money, or they are just to lazy.
Another, time wasted feature (OPINION)
~To add onto the other glorious upgrades, the rating feature on the dash allows you to, you guessed it, rate any and all games on a 5 star scale. With this comes fun for 0-bombers. The system (I think) allows anyone, anywhere, and at anytime, rate any game, anyway they like.
~Though if there aren't as many fags as I think out there, there is a "Top Rated" section. Here, all the best rated games are gracefully placed in the palm of your hand, crying out for you to look at what they have to offer. Then they just sit and laugh because I don't mean it literally.
Bored yet? To bad, I'm not done. MOVING ON:
YAY! A USABLE FEATURE!
~With the update, comes a new frined system (well, updated). With the new (updated) system, you can invite people to a party with just one button (at the dash only, I think). Hopefully, it works.
~Now, also added on was a sorting system for your friends list with allows you to sort them on these terms:
This will come in handy for those of you with big friends lists. If only they had a sorter so one can easily see who does/doesn't shoot foam at high speeds at another person/thing.
~For the achievements, the only real changes is that as you unlock them, you unlock stuff for your avatar. Also you can access a game from the achievement display thing on the dash.
As for that, you will have to find out the rest on your own. SORRY! Hoe didn't give to much juicy stuff for me to write out for you lazy bastards. If my explanation wasn't good enough then watch it yourself, the thing's on the dash.
Have a nice day...
P.S.: I say "I think" a lot because I don't have the new dashboard yet...
P.S.S: And yes, I wrote this all out because I have nothing better to do... I wanna go nerf already but nooo.
