Xbox live to undergo major improvements

Coming to the Xbox 360 in the next few weeks, Microsoft's online service Xbox Live will be undergoing major renovations.

One of the most noticeable upgrades will include improved navigation of the Xbox Live Marketplace. Due to the unexpected success and large amount of content in the Marketplace, additional grouping has been added to make searching through all the available items easier for the user. Another one of the most anticipated features for the Xbox Live update will include the ability for background downloading. This will let Xbox Live users go about other things on the console while waiting for their selected content to download.

Other features in the Xbox Live upgrade will include improved control over DVD playback, and finally the user can set the Xbox 360 to boot directly to the Dashboard.
