Your faceless friends may not be faceless for much longer



According to a source close to Microsoft, the problems that are currently being experienced on the Xbox 360 dashboard will be fixed shortly.

The dashboard has a few minor problems, but annoying nevertheless. The screen freezes regularly on PGR3 when you try and access the dashboard, leading to the re-setting of the console. Other complaints include consoles crashing and the overall navigation of the dashboard.

The update will include the following:

1) Fixes for lockups in Xbox 360 games.
2) Additional functionality to the Dashboard.
3) Camera support for the Dashboard so that you can use your webcam.


Interesting news regarding the webcam, but no indication as to when webcams will be available in Europe.

Thanks to Xbox 360 Asia for the info!
