Microsoft revealed on Tuesday that its promised Xbox 360 dashboard update has been slightly delayed.
Larry Hryb, Microsoft’s Major Nelson, revealed the delay over Twitter on Tuesday. “The timing for Xbox 360 dashboard update has been slightly delayed. I’ll have a status update later today,” said Hryb. He later added that he doesn’t have full information on delay and will share details later today. Microsoft had originally promised to deliver the update to all consoles by 3PM GMT.
The dashboard update will bring Microsoft’s Metro style interface to the Xbox. Microsoft is also preparing to include YouTube and Bing on the Xbox. Bing users will be able to use Kinect’s voice recognition feature to search for movies, music and other content on their consoles. The new dashboard will also enable Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone integration with Xbox, see a video demonstration here. Microsoft plans to make its dashboard update available on December 6 for all Xbox 360 customers. We’ll update the article when Microsoft communicates any new timing for the release.
