Microsoft is introducing more social networking features to its celebrated Xbox Live service.

As part of the Fall update going live on December 4, users will be able to view Friends lists directly from the Dashboard, or keep the list private.

Citing popular web services Facebook and MySpace, the publisher believes that "this type of capability has largely come to be expected from consumers as a means to relate in an online community."

The new dashboard update will also allow users to download original Xbox games including Halo and Fable for 1200 Microsoft Points.

I've been looking into this all day and it seems like something that i'm going to like even more, but I wish they would come up with a web browser for the console. Unfortunately my Monitor for my computer is also the screen for my Xbox 360 so It's either one or the other and a web browser would mean I wouldn't have to constantly switch.
