    just signed on, and the new version is out....

    however no new arcade games :banghead: 

    what i've noticed so far....

    no new blades, but the current ones have been reorganised a tad..

    xbox live: the market place now has more sub categories, for example in the demo section, playable game demos have been separated from videos, which is nice. there is also a new option in here, "active downloads" which is a list of things you have downloading in the backgorund, which yes, you guessed it, means you can download stuffs while playing a game or dvd.

    the games blade now has some extra options, achievements, played games and game videos are just shortcuts to stuff we already had. the arcade has been re-organised when it comes to downloading, but still no street fighter!

    media doesnt appear to have changes, and in system the only new thing is "xbox live vision" which is for the yet to be released webcam.

    so apart from the downloading stuff nothing really has changed.

    It should make things easer to fined in Market Place, I didn’t like how the vid and game demos where all mixed up before.

    Now that’s it’s out hopefully the new games will be close behind.

    It would be cool if they released at lest two games at once at lest this one time. It’s some what torturous making people wait so long. I mean there was nothing for weeks then we get ANOUGHER puzzle game (Zuma), then how long was it? One month, two passes then we get Uno? Light a fire under it people! More classic games and or new stuff and less puzzles. I love a good puzzle game but spread it around a little.

    You have a good thing going Xbox, don’t blow it.

    I don't like how they got rid of the number of possible downloads in a category and how many of those downloads you actually have downloaded onto your hd.

    yeah, its still confusing to me, the colours jump around.

    i played zuma for a while, even though the red and green balls looked the same, the only way i could tell was the different pattern on the balls. i loved that game, until it introduced more colours.... now i can't play it at all.

    just got an email from xbox, saying that Lumines Live is available from the arcade..... oh no it isnt! lying email.


    *edit

    just found that you can now specify how your xbox starts up, whether it goes to the dash or plays the disc in there. its useful for me, as my girlfirend uses my xbox to watch tv, and she complains when it loads a game up.... women.
