Microsoft has released the "Fall" dashboard update for Xbox 360 and among the many hidden treasures, is the much publicised (though not by Microsoft) inclusion of DivX video support. This is, of course, a good thing, in fact the more video formats the Xbox 360 supports, the more versatile it becomes. As video format support expands, customers will be able to spend less time converting their existing videos and more time enjoying them.
Bigger news though is the arrival of Xbox Original games on Xbox Live. Now users can buy and download original Xbox games, such as Halo, Crimson Skies and CrashBandicoot , via the internet directly to their console. Games are well priced at 1200 Microsoft Points (about $20) and as more titles are added to the list of downloads, the appeal of Xbox Originals will only broaden.
Xbox Arcade now has a new section called Xbox Live Arcade Hits, where you can find all your favourite "old" Arcade titles at newly reduced prices (400 or 800 points by the looks).
Other improvements include enhanced online profiles, expanded friends lists, parental controls and some navigation tweakage. Much of the rest of the update revolves around media support (media being video, music, TV and photo handling) and will really only interest those who use their 360 as a Media Centre Extender (which should be everyone right? I mean, why wouldn't you?). There's plenty of good stuff in there and I suggest you check out the full list of improvements here.
