It's spring and you all know what that means... Xbox 360 dashboard update! I'm surprised that nothing had really been said about it yet but it should be out some time in the next few months. Here are a few things I hope they add.
I love listening to music on my 360 while playing games but the controls need some help. I think to fix this Microsoft needs to add better in game controls. It would be much easier if all I had to do to change song was hold down a few buttons. Like make it so if you hold all the triggers and bumpers then the joysticks take control of the music.
Another thing that would be a nice addition to the system would be a way to change which controller port you are connected too. It can get really annoying because I always have my GH2 guitar plugged in and it gets annoying have to sign out with it then sign in with the controller I'm using. I just want a screen I can go to and move around which controller is connected where.
The last thing that I think would be nice for the 360 is to allow me to download podcast to my 360. They already have a great collection on the Zune marketplace so why not allow me to save them to my 360. And if your going to do that why not just put the whole market place on the 360. It already uses them same "currency" and ID.
Well that's what I'm hoping for, any one else have any ideas?

According to TheHushedCasket.com If you want to unlock the Best Buy exclusive gun for Rainbow Six Veges, all you need to do is go to the main menu and then press and hold RB, then press Down, Down, Up, Up, X, B, X, B, Y, Up, Up, Y. I don't know if there is a way to get this to work on the PS3, if any knows how, leave a comment. Also if you want to unlock the Comcast map just pick extras from the main menu then go to "Comcast Gift" then enter "COMCAST FASTER" This should work on both 360 and PS3.

The long awaited Call of Duty 4 patch has finally been released. Along with the bug fixes to the game, it also added a new controller layout, called "NOM4D." The reason for this new controller scheme, is that, it was requested by a MLG gamer named "NOM4D." The reason why NOM4D requested this is that he has Arthrogryposis, which limits the control he has over his hands and feet. So when he plays video games he must use his face. I think it's really cool that Infinity Ward did this just for one guy. If you want to read more about NOM4D go to this post on GamerGirl.com, also here is a short news story about him.
