X360 Dashboard Update

Come August 11, you will be able to dress your avatar in some snappy branded clothing, or clothing tied to some of your favourite games.  You will be able to sport some flashy new accessories like a basketball or mobile phone.  There will be Games on Demand, but whether SA is included, is highly debateable.

Details :

The biggest change is that avatar clothing will be bolstered, as you can now snap up ‘Premium Outfits’ such as Steampunk wear, Recessionista (what?) wear or clothes by Adidas, Quiksilver, Roxy and Tokidoki.

There will also be avatar clothing tied in with BioShock 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Gears of War 2, Fable II, The Secret of Monkey Island SE, Splinter: Cell Conviction and Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes while props such as basketballs and mobile phones will also be available.

There will also be a Games On Demand service, allowing you to download games in the same way you can currently do with original Xbox titles. The confirmed list so far is:

  • Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft)
  • Burnout Paradise (EA)
  • Call of Duty 2 (Activision)
  • Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Bethesda)
  • Fight Night Round 3 (EA)
  • Kameo: Elements of Power (Microsoft Game Studios)
  • LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (LucasArts)
  • Mass Effect (Microsoft Game Studios)
  • Meet The Robinsons (Disney)
  • MX vs. ATV Untamed (THQ)
  • Need for Speed Carbon (EA)
  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted (EA)
  • Perfect Dark Zero (Microsoft Game Studios)
  • Prey (2K Games)
  • Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis (Rockstar Games)
  • Sega Rally (Sega)
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas (Ubisoft)
  • Tomb Raider Legend (Eidos)
  • Viva Piñata (Microsoft Game Studios)
  • Viva Piñata 2: Trouble in Paradise (Microsoft Game Studios)

You’ll also be able to rate every item on Marketplace out of five, from the DLC to the XBLA games themselves. It will be interesting to see what 360 owners deem to be the best XBLA game on Live…

The dashboard update is pencilled in for August 11th.
