Prepare for full-scale war with Battlefield 3, the third major evolution of the long-running online battle franchise. Using the power of Frostbite 2 game engine technology, Battlefield 3 delivers superior visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations. As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.

In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Europe, Middle-East and North America.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was an amazing first-person shooter. But with every Bad Company release and spin-off, I couldn’t help but wonder what DICE was doing with its main Battlefield franchise. As it turns out, it had something to do with earthquakes.

The core games, including Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2, helped define what’s possible in multiplayer first-person shooters. It’s been more than five years since Battlefield 2 on PC, and now DICE is finally getting ready to deliver the next numbered entry. Battlefield 3 has a release date for this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and from what’s been shown off, it looks incredible.

That’s because Battlefield 3 is being built using all-new technology developed in-house at DICE. It’s the next version of the Frostbite engine used in the Bad Company games, appropriately called Frostbite 2. It allows for a range of advanced graphical effects and destructible terrain. “We actually started with the engine three years ago,” said executive producer Patrick Bach. “When we finished Battlefield 2 and 2142 we talked about what’s the next big step that changes gaming. We’re good at technology and we wanted to create something that scaled better than Frostbite 1 did. The PCs were already — three years ago — starting to get ahead of the consoles. How could we make good use of that?”

If you started up your Xbox 360 to a message of a new update, do not be alarmed. It’s simply a new look for the console with some new features to boot. Here’s what the new dashboard brings to the table.

Firstly, the entire look of the dash has been cleaned up. Menus are no longer staggered, but rather laid out side by side in rows. The new look feels slightly more responsive than the previous dashboard, but doesn’t provide a very significant speed boost.

Aside from the aesthetics, there are more substantial additions as well.  ESPN3 has joined the Xbox Live family. If you’re used to watching ESPN3 on your laptop or desktop, you now have the option of putting it on your TV with the help of your 360.

ESPN3 on Xbox Live will have every live sporting event that can be found on ESPN3 and already has hundreds of on demand sporting events.  In addition to the events, you can also find ESPN3 news and analysis.

Netflix has also received a facelift.  Much like the dashboard, menus are laid out in rows and no longer staggered. Netflix has been given a search function too, which means no more adding movies to your queue from your computer.

In addition to the new look and features of the new dashboard, this new update also prepares every Xbox for the launch of Kinect Sensor, which hits stores this Thursday.

How Do I Get It?

Getting the update free from Xbox LIVE is the easiest and best option because your console will be automatically updated as new system software is released. To update your Xbox 360 console on Xbox LIVE, just connect to Xbox LIVE with either a Gold or free membership. Your console will be restarted when you join Xbox LIVE, so be sure to save your game progress.

If you don’t have an Xbox LIVE account or have a slow Internet connection, you can use a USB drive or burn a DVD/CD to update your console. Get complete details on how to do it here:
