XBL update will bring more to dashboard than Twitter and Facebook


It looks as though the next Xbox Live update will not only have Facebook, Twitter and Zune functionality, but according Microsoft, music games will get dedicated stores.

Once live, you'll see stores for Lips, Guitar Hero and Rock Band along with a "News and More" channel that streams headline news from MSNBC.com, MSN Autos, The New Yorker and Dilbert.

Interesting. Those who signed up for the preview and were or have yet to be accepted, will get a first hand look at it next week.
