It looks like the new dashboard will be installed on Dec 6th for all xbox live users. Interesting that it looks just like the Windows Phone tiles. It also looks like Windows 8's new Start menu. This is a smart way to get everyone use to the new interface that they will get in Windows 8 next year.

Also there will be a Kinect for Windows 8 next year.

Star Wars Kinect has been pushed to 2012.

Kinect Star Wars Bundle & Game being released April 3rd

$450 for the bundle.  Yeowch.  Hopefully they'll release that controller separately.

And if you ever wanted to dance with the Dark Lord, the game now includes a super-sweet dance mode:

· New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move “Solo style.”

yeah I saw that...  $100 + shipping and all you get is a 90 warranty

For $100 more I can get a new one off amazon with a full warranty and I am pretty sure new has 3 yr RROD warranty

also, are the new ones susceptible to RROD?

I've never heard the $100 thing...  Any XBox that gets the RROD gets fixed in my experience, at least the first time.  If it happens again, which I don't know how common that is, they insist you pay.

How much does an out-of-warranty repair cost?

The cost of an out-of-warranty console repair varies:

$99.99 plus tax, if you submit a repair request online

$119.99 plus tax, if you call Xbox Support and have a support agent create the repair order for you. (See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for contact information.)

When you send your console to our service center for repair, we test your console for three flashing red lights or an E74 error. If your console does not exhibit three flashing red lights or an E74 error, and you are out of the standard one-year product warranty, you can have your console repaired for a fee or choose to have your console returned to you unrepaired.

Wow I just contacted them and they never even mentioned it...  They just said they'd send me the postage to mail it back to them in my original packaging and it was taken care of.  Mine was well past the warranty when I sent it in too.

Microsoft is launching a subsidized Xbox 360 bundle next week for $99 with a two-year subscription. For $15 a month, you get two years of xbox live gold, 4gb xbox console and Kinect sensor. Doing the math that is $459 for two years.  Separately each piece breaks down to $150 for the kinect, $120 for two year of xbox live gold and $189 for the 4gb xbox console.

So - you save $0?

Do you need to return the 360 at the end of the lease?  I guess by then the 720 will be out and the 360 will be a doorstop.
