    Story here. According to the news bit it's coming on August 25th. That kinda surprised me as I was under the impression it wouldn't be out till around the holidays. Or maybe it won't be and MS is just getting our hopes up for nothing again. At any rate, it looks pretty cool and the voice chat out of game will be great.

    That looks cool... they really needed to make the friends list more accessible.

    Thanks for the link and pic!

    They should make the friends list bigger, 300 would be much better.

    Grouping is the main thing the friends list is lacking. After awhile I coudln't remember if I had added someone because they were HTF or from one of the football leagues I joined or just random people that I had fun playing games with.

    Definitely agree on the grouping thing, I never thought of that until you guys said it. That would be perfect for friends from HTF and such.

    They should track the last time you played each friend....make it easier to purge the dropouts.

    Did you guys read about the "Live Aware" games. If your playing offline it still recognizes that you have a live account and will allow you to quickly check to see if your friends are online and receive invites, all while playing offline.

    I just hope that dash board will be 480p. I hate having to switch inputs.

    LaMarcus- The latest OXM mentions a new HD adapter called the Neoya X2VGA with a feature called "480i Easyview". Basically it will take the 480i signal from the dashboard and make it compatible with your 480p signal. It will look somewaht awful, but its readable & you won't have to switch cables.

    It's $69, but if the new dashboard isn't 480p, it might be worth it.

    dangit, now I just HAVE to go wireless! Right now I'm running a cable across my living room, but only when I want to play LIVE. To take advantage of Live Aware, I would have to be connected all the time.

    Somebody please recommend the cheapest way for me to go wireless for my Xbox!!
