You want a faster Xbox 360 dashboard, right? In his latest podcast, Major Nelson dropped hints about some performance enhancements that will make the next dashboard update faster.
"The team has done some really good stuff around making performance enhancements," Nelson said. "'Performance enhancements' doesn't sound right because it sounds like we're going to give the guide a little blue pill, and we're not doing that."
The next...thing is also going to have some "cool new features," though nothing specific was mentioned: "Whatever we call it (and it's not going to be called the NNXE), but whatever the next version of the dashboard is called, it's better with a lot of very cool new features. That update will be out later this year," he said.
