The New New Xbox Experience

Microsoft has revealed what's next for the Xbox Dashboard, and it's a future that features Kinect very heavily, along with a variety of online entertainment.

YouTube is coming to the Xbox 360, for one thing, giving users access to a huge amount of web-based content.

Bing is also coming to the Dashboard to help users find entertainment content on the Marketplace.

And finally, live TV is coming to the dashboard, though no mention was made of the "diamond" level subscription package that was rumored earlier.

All of the above features are fully Kinect compatible -- the tagline for the new update was "TV is better when you are the controller."

The new Dashboard update is set to go live this fall.
