Xbox Live Silver to become Xbox Live
Microsoft has made a habit of taking things away from Silver members, rather than giving things to Gold members, and it seems that the company is now taking the one thing they had left -- their name. The dignified XBL Silver membership is soon to become XBL Free, a title that reflects poverty and disenfranchisement, which is definitely why Microsoft did it.

Xbox Live's European community manager (less glamorous Major Nelson) Graeme "Aceybongos" Boyd Tweeted the news earlier. He then ate a turkey leg in one bite and threw the bone at a beggar.

Joking aside, I can see why Microsoft did this. With Kinect coming soon, MS is anticipating a slew of "casual" gamers on Xbox Live, and everybody knows that "casual" gamers need to be treated like utter retards. "Free" is far more straightforward than "Silver", so all those soccer moms who are afraid of real controllers can understand what's going on.

i got the move on launch, and i played it probably twice. they need more games. but this sucks for the kinect for launch

Microsoft has issued a warning to anyone who obtains an early copy of any Kinect game ahead of the launch next week.

Inserting one of the several Kinect launch games will disable Xbox Live due to a system update being required that's currently not available. IGN reader Ken sent us this tip who managed to get an early copy of Kinectimals sent to him from EB Games.

Just a word of warning that if you receive an Xbox Kinect game early and perform the title update, it will also update your console to the new dashboard.

Unfortunately, the update isn't the newest version, and every time you try to sign into Live it will try to update to a version that does not exist on the server. Since you can't connect to Live without the newest version, the system will be locked out until the update goes on the servers.
Microsoft issued a response saying this is only a temporary problem.

"Due to a retailer error a very small number of customers were shipped copies of a Kinect game ahead of launch," a spokesperson said. "Since Kinect does not launch until November 4th in the United States, customers who insert the game into their console before then will be temporarily unable to access Xbox LIVE.

"The retailer is contacting affected individuals directly to warn them of this situation."

I don't see why that sucks. It affects an extremely small amount of people. It doesn't even affect the launch at all considering that when Kinect launches it'll fix all of the problems.

what launch games does kinect have? Move has MAG, Heavy Rain, KZ3, Socom 4 all coming >_<

honestly i don't want to play those games with motion. I can't imagine playing socom by moving my arms around, same with MAG.

Kinect Adventures was really fun when I played it
Fighters uncaged ~ the Move fighting game
Kinect Joy Ride
Dance Masters
Kinect Sports


i'm not getting Kinect to play by myself, I'm getting it to play with my gf mainly and my parents

Xbox Live Fall Update Hits Monday
Microsoft's Xbox Live Fall update will become available for download on Monday, November 1.

Announced via e-mail, the update, which has been in beta testing for many weeks, includes a new look for the system dashboard, Kinect support, and additional features, such as ESPN programming and added access to the Zune Marketplace, including Zune Pass music streaming functionality.

Microsoft also issued a list of additional upgrades and changes earlier this month, such as improved voice chat quality and improvement to the Xbox Live Marketplace interface.

Members who decline to download the update will be unable to connect to Xbox Live. Microsoft says the update should take somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes to download.

This is the third iteration to the Xbox 360's interface since the console's launch in 2005.

What's the point of watching ESPN on your xbox? I feel like most people who could afford an xbox also have cable, so why go through the xbox and the internet to watch a channel you can just watch on tv?

A similar argument could be made for the value of an internet browser on the PS3.

This shit isn't ESPN. You have so much more choices. It's On Demand too. I was watching High School football. Local teams too, then I watched Penn State Michigan game, then I watched a lil boxing. This rapes the fuck out of cable.
