New Fall Dashboard update coming next week

Microsoft announced today that a new Fall Dashboard Update for the Xbox 360 will be released next week. The fall dashboard update contains a new feature called Friends of Friends and will show the friends that your friend has (how many more times can we say friends in this sentence?). Sounds like something from Facebook or MySpace. Of course, the new update includes the ability to set it so everyone can view your friends (must be 18 years or older), only your friends can view your friends (must be 13 years or older) and the default for people under 13, blocked. Sorry kids, no seeing your friends, not like you could stalk them over Xbox wait, I take that back, that’s possible.

The update also covers support for the original Xbox games on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The dashboard update releases on December 4th.
