10 Jun 2011

The console will also get voice control as part of the upgrade that was first announced by Microsoft at the E3 conference.
Xbox Live’s Larry Hryb, who blogs as Major Nelson, writes that the new dashboard is “simpler, cleaner and easier to navigate…with a new look and feel that makes it even more open, inviting and intuitive to navigate.”
The addition of Bing to Xbox and Kinect gives gamers the opportunity to transform their console into an entertainment hub even more easily, said Major Nelson.
He added: “Bing on Xbox searches Netflix, Hulu Plus, ESPN, as well as our music, video and Xbox LIVE marketplaces to find exactly the entertainment you want to enjoy.
“With Bing on Xbox and Kinect, you can effortlessly find the games, movies, TV shows, sports and music you want by only using your voice. You say it, Xbox finds it. The experience is now simpler than ever before.”
