New XBL Preview Update Is Out Now

New XBL Preview Update is out now if you registered. They were going to give it out to thousands of people so maybe you'll be lucky and get in early. I've been a member for over 4 years and always get things early. Good luck to all and enjoy. By the way, if you do get in early as well please post feedback and constructive criticism too. So far so good..

I dont Twitter or Facebook so the update kinda sucks for me but the new streaming 1080p movies should be cool. I might use the new radio sometimes.

I think the streaming works well, but the HD is hit-or-miss, I streamed the Ong Bak 2 trailer from the Zune marketplace and it looked FANTASTIC on my TV, then I streamed: Red Cliffs, Avatar and some other movie trailer in HD... and they looked DVD-quality at best.

Granted I'm on a 4mbps d/l connection but if the Ong Bak 2 trailer could look so damn good, why not the rest?

I believe they did say 7mbps at least as a req.

Maybe you got lucky at first.

Nope, I tried it again and it still looks HD the 2nd and 3rd time around (though it doesn't get to that quality for at least 5-10 seconds). At first I thought it was the run-time since it's 1 minute long compared to the other's 2-2:30-long run-times but I tried the Ruins trailer which is 1:12 long and it still looks like DVD-quality video.

Weird.

At the times I'll have Xbox Live Gold, Facebook is definitely something I'll be taking advantage of. But that'll have to wait for the full update, whenever that feels like happening. >_>

This is the first time that I've used Last.fm, and I LOVE it.
