If you've turned on your Xbox 360 today, you should already have the Spring Update
for the dashboard. We spent some time fiddling around with it, looking at the new features. The Xbox Live Marketplace blade is more or less exactly the same as the old Marketplace, though a few things have been shifted around to produce a better layout. IM and Chat are now located directly on the games blade. While everyone is making a big deal out of Live Messenger integration, one of our favorite features is the new tray display. Before, it simply read "Play Game," but now it shows the game that's in the tray. Even better, the info box on the right side of the screen displays how much Gamerscore you've acquired for whatever game you have in the tray. It also shows the most recent achievements you've acquired in the game.
Have you discovered anything else that's new, or are you too busy chatting it up with your buddies?
