Major Nelson announced on his blog that the next Xbox 360 dashboard update will hit consoles on Dec 6th.  The update adds a dew features including:

  • New personal and social features including Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile
  • Beacons and Facebook Sharing
  • Enhanced Family Settings
  • Integrated voice and gesture controls across the dashboard and in apps
  • Bing voice search (Available this year in the US, UK and CA)

The dashboard will also take on a new look as well, that is designed to be easier to navigate with Kinect.  But unless you have a Kinect sensor, the cloud storage is the biggest change.  Considering all the hardware problems Xbox has had over the years I’m betting a lot of folks wish they had cloud saving years ago.
