On November 19th, Xboxes everywhere will be updated to the “New Xbox Experience” – that’s the blanket term for the revamped and refreshed Xbox UI. The New Xbox Experience includes features like avatars, updated gamercards, new themes, an updated video marketplace, a new game store, and so much more. Of course, one of the most highly anticipated features that’s going to be revealed on the 19th is the Xbox/Netflix integration. All Xbox Gold members with a Netflix subscription will soon be able to instantly watch movies from their Netflix library right on the Xbox – and there’s no extra charge for doing so! The Netflix library offers over 12,000 movies to choose from, but if you can’t find something you like there (or you’re not a Netflix subscriber), the new Xbox Video Marketplace will also offer tons of content to choose from. There, you’ll find over 20,000 pieces of HD and standard def content which includes both movies and TV shows.
If you’re dying for a sneak peek at theses upcoming features, the Gamerscore blog has a few more details and screenshots.
