Today we are going to talk about the New Xbox Experience. Ok, Ok, I know it isn't a game, but it will change how you interact with you 360 significantly.
The NXE is set to drop tomorrow (Nov. 19) and will completely replace the 'Blades' that you currently see.
So, What do you get with the NXE? To me it is a combination of the Mii's from Wii, and Playstaion 3's (as of yet unreleased) Home.
The main features are:
Avatars - Mii like characters that represent your GamerTag. The design for the Avatars was done by Rare.
Netflix - For those of you who didn't by the Roku Media Player, you finally get your Netflix streamed to the 360.
Online Marketplace - Now you can buy your games for download on the Marketplace and they will start auto downloading! (exciting for me, hopefully they will have the demos as well.)
Party Mode - Lets you connect to 7 other people and share photos, vote and voice chat, play games (and watch your avatars respond to each other)
UPDATE: User Generated Content: With Microsoft's XNA users can now create, share and vote on user generated games! Look forward to Nerd Nats!
UPDATE 2: Oh yeah, you can also load a portion of you Games to the HDD for faster loading.
All in all it should be neat. We'll let you know our impressions after we play with it a bit.
