Video: Xbox Live update preview hands-on

This fall, Xbox Live is getting yet another overhaul along with the launch of its motion controller/camera, Kinect.

In many ways, it’s a visual update, with what I feel is a cleaner aesthetic. Functionally, the features you’re used to aren’t changing very much; operations-wise, it’s nearly identical. But as with any good update, there are new features hidden within, including an updated Netflix application, Zune Music and Zune Pass, as well as ESPN on-demand for sports fans. Oh, and Avatars now look a bit different.

Check out the video for a peek at what’s in store.
