new Xbox dashboard

Logic-Sunrise has posted what appear to be leaked shots of a new Xbox 360 dashboard built around Kinect.

The motion tech is set to release in November.

The shots contain the name used for Kinect before its reveal at E3 last month; there’s a feature in the options menu called “Natal Tuner.”

If these turn out to be real, this would be the first big facelift to the 360 dashboard since the introduction of the New Xbox Experience in November 2008.

Big stuff. Sounds like this may well be a gamescom reveal.

We’ll contact MS now.
