Xbox 360 fall dashboard update now available

Microsoft has begun to roll out the dashboard update for Xbox Live, bringing many new features with it (including the all-important Kinect support). As the update goes live around the world, most of you will get an automatic update prompt the next time you sign in. 

The biggest features are ESPN access, Zune Music and various navigation and aesthetic improvements. Major Nelson has the full skinny on everything should you be curious. Of course, chief among the updates is Kinect functionality, in time for its US launch this week. 

And we are all looking forward to that, of couse.
