Xbox 360 Fall Update Shifts Marketplace

Everyone’s been abuzz trying to figure out what kinds of awesomeness await the Xbox 360 Fall Update, and thanks to Engadget Japanese’s Ittousai and Joystiq, some of the new features have come to light – and some of the features have been on XBL Gamers’ wishlists for quite some time…

First and foremost is the reordering of the Marketplace Blade. Now, there will be a “Game Library” selection that replaces Xbox Live Arcade alongside the “Achievements” and “Played Games” choices. This move is likely due to Microsoft making original Xbox games available for download over Xbox Live. Games like Halo, Psychonauts, Crimson Skies and Fable will be available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 MS Points each. That’s only $15, so at least they’ll be cheaper than buying store copies!

Makes sense – can’t call it Live Arcade when there are entire games available for download, right?

Once you open the Library, you’ll find games listed in a new way. The image accompanying this article showcases that new look.

Games Library’s new look!

On top of that, there’s even more news about Fall Update features:

  • Top level of “marketplace” has been reorganized and reduced to four categories: “Featured Content,” “What’s New,” “Game Store,” and “Video Store” (below top level, categories will be navigated by twist, just like the Game Library)
  • “Personal Profile” added to Gamer Profile; text field allowing approx. 500-1000 characters, providing space to publish name, nationality, region, and self introduction. (Further social networking tools to accompany ‘Friends of Friends’ functionality)
  • XBLA demos deleted from “Played Games” and Gamercard lists

I don’t know about anyone else, but that last one (you know, the one bolded and italicized) has been on my list for quite some time. It’s finally good to see that games you don’t own will be removed from your played game list! I always hated that…

As a final reminder, this list isn’t complete and could change – likely with features added rather than removed – by December 4th, when the update is due to hit.

  1. Thanks for sharing this sweet article with us 🙂

  2. Interesting… it’s a good area for testing because, honestly, I could see it going either way. So, does Google still collapse it into one page (i.e. no duplicate content) but RANK if for three different terms? I wasn’t quite clear on your final test.

    this is great. did you knew the fact that there’s a hacking chip for Playstation 3? I hope it is for real and not a phony. It is called psjailbreak.. anybody checked this??

  16. Unless your home was used as collateral to get a loan for the business, and the business is really a Limited Liability Partnership, the home should not be subject to a bankruptcy filing by the business. Of course, the "Partnership" is still on the hook, and filing bankruptcy seems to be the best option, in this case.

    Think the bollywood actresses wear the most beautiful makeup and yah i agree with answer above…saying asian girls wear most beautiful makeup on their wedding day! i personally wear a little makeup but it seems alot because even without makeup i am pretty goodlooking:)

  18. when i first got mine i put so many songs on it and i hated those songs a week later so i deleted them off my mp3 by using the computer and the nxt time i went to turn it on it wouldnt work. so my dad took it back to best buy and they couldnt fix it so i got a new one. so whatever you do dont delete it with the computer.

  19. Final Fantasy games and Metal Gear Solid are pretty heavy on memory (I think FFIX is 1 and a half gigs). So you should definitely get 8GB. Maybe get both.

    Fortunately, it’s pretty easy. Garmin has a program called Web Updater which communicates with Garmin’s servers and notifies you when there is a firmware update for your device. You can download it for free at the link below.

  21. Lower complete dentures really SUCK. Start saving for implants. Only 1 in 20 lower complete denture wearers are ever happy, even if you go to a specialist. If you can afford it get the implants before all your bone resorbs completely

  25. A pit bull under the age of 2 is not mature yet, you can’t begin to work on their body type until they are fully matured. It would do much more harm then good! Please refer to the site below, it is by far the best pit bull site out there!

  26. A dog vitamin from the vet wouldn’t hurt.You can also give her cottage cheese,yogurt,meat and eggs as supplements to her puppy food,but they should not make up more than 15% of her diet. And please,if the dog is not a show dog,consider getting her spayed – there are literally millions of pit bulls in shelters,waiting to die.

If you want people to comprehend your points, you should take into consideration the other side of the debate, as well. You have got a lot of knowledge, I’m sure. But, quite frankly, you turned me off together with your tone.
