November 19 marks the day the Xbox 360 video game console will get its first dashboard make-over. Let’s hope it will not turn into "the day the Xbox stood still". The fall 2008 update took much longer than expected – the previously announced 24hours downtime turned into several days of limited and even no service at all for some areas.
You might want to backup as much as possible to memory units; one can never play safe enough.

The fall 2008 update for the Xbox 360 will not "update" but entirely change the dashboard:
"A new Xbox experience that will reinvent home entertainment from the inside out, changing the way we play games, watch movies and TV shows, and even become contestants in game shows. It all begins this fall with a bold new look and feel that is fun, social and simple to use."
Another major news is the partnership with Netflix – a movie rental service – giving Xbox 360 users instant access to more than 10,000 feature films and television shows with a click of a button.
Meeting global gamers’ complaints at least partially, another new feature, Xbox Live Primetime, will provide content to non-US gamers as well:
"TV shows and movies from world leaders in entertainment including NBC Universal, Universal Studios Home Entertainment, SCI FI Channel and USA Network domestically and Constantin and MGM internationally."
Feature highlights for the new Xbox experience:

The US is releasing a new version of the Xbox 360 which will triple the existing 20GB hard drive to 60GB but keep the same price. 20GB consoles will be sold out at a discount while stock lasts. No words yet about console upgrades on Asian sites but it shouldn’t take long for the upgraded version to arrive.

Instead of pushing for a spring dashboard update – you might compare it with a Windows Service Pack (SP) – focus lies on “building the proper infrastructure and scale for the service"; whatever that means.
