    That was there before the upgrade. The feature i was looking forward to the most was the GoD with the 360 games to see how much they were going to charge - but we've got to wait for that as its coming an another update further down the preview line :/
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    The only things i've noticed is the cheevos screens and rating stuff so not very exciting. Games of demand does indeed sound interesting though.

    I read somewhere though with games on demand that you won't be able to get them for day of release .

    Makes perfect sense to me.
    Bound to be server issues, not to mention the upset of major games retailers.

    Nope. You can't download them in anyway to be able to play them on the launch date

    That's one of the major issues I have too, they charge full RRP for the games with no resale value, I'll stick to buying discs if that ends up being the route they take.

    I was accepted into the preview & my console has updated again (1st time gave me GoD) which took longer than the last one but I can't see what it's given me?!

    That and sometimes when moving between parties it does the same.
    Yep, I get that all the time too.

    Weren't they going to bring movie streaming to the XBL marketplace? I would use it a hell of a lot more if I didn't have to download them.
