Default How has the 360 grown via Firmware update?

To those who really keepup with their 360's, how has from day 1 till now, the 360 grown via firmware update.

For example, with PS3, background downloading was offered or new new codecs or support for more bluetooth devices and such. How has the 360 grown because of them?

More Audio and Video stuff, be it resolutions or audio.
Better management with the interface.
Video Market place.

Auto-Downloading of XBL Arcade Games
Background Downloading and Queuing Up to 5 Downloads
Support for new accessories like wireless wheel, wireless headset, HD-DVD Drive.
Ability to start to dashboard or disc if inserted.
WMV Support for Windows Media Connect

And more to come with the Spring 2007 Update just around the corner. MS may not push updates as frequently as Sony, but damn they make up for it in the number of additions.

The Rumor is that the next update will finally add the ability to see what game is in the drive. Instead of saying "Play Game", you're get "Play: Project Gothem Racing 3" Small feature, but still nice.

I'm hoping that they add a feature to at least Video Marketplace, where you can see a list of all the videos purchased by your account. Cause when I get my 120GB drive, I want to load it up with all the videos I had to delete to fit others on.

Also 1080p support is a big one. I've had my 360 since launch and it's almost an entirely different system(speaking about xbox dashboard soley here) then what it was when I bought it in November of 05.

Another LEAK!!!! Video of some new features included in the Spring Update!

http://news.mygamercard.net/2007/04/...hboard-update/

Low-power Downloading and Auto-Off When Completed! (Instead of a 6 hour timer.)

But Messenger buddies?!?!?! Boring! I'm not chatting while playing a game or watching a video. What a dumb addition.
