Default Xbox 360 spring dashboard update leaked?

Quote:
Ruh roh, according to MyGamerCard, GameSpot supposedly accidentally posted a video of Xbox 360's spring Dashboard update. No way of knowing if it's legit (it certainly doesn't look a fake), but according to the video:

* The update hits May 7th
* Your contact list will now integrate Windows Live Messenger, and show joinable session status
* Messenger contacts can see what game you're playing, and your gamertag
* Marketplace will now have its own blade, which will be skinned independent of your theme
* Users will now get inline achievement updates
* Low-power download mode and auto-shutdown
* You can watch partially downloaded movies
* You can text chat messenger six friends playing games watching movies
* Multiple tweaks on the user interface

I like the low-power downloads with auto-shut off feature. The more advanced chat features seem pretty cool, too.

I thought it was fine just to list the features, but if you insist on a direct smackdown:

XBL continues to innovate while PSN continues to imitate.

I watched the video clip, a lot of these updates have been a long time coming (especially Messenger integration). Hopefully it helps reduce system noise when using the HD DVD add-on as well (lower fan speed ideally).
