New NXE arrives Nov 17 on Xbox Live

During the mandatory service update landing November 17, your Xbox Live experience will get a lot more social. This addition to the current Xbox Live NXE dashboard will be implementing social networking tools such as Twitter and Facebook, along with music/video streaming capabilities through Zune, and Last.FM. With this, you will most likely be seeing automatic updates to your Twitter/Facebook, listing what games you are currently playing, achievements unlocked and what songs/video you are streaming. So in other words, you will soon be mashing (if you are not already) your gaming life with your social one.

New Xbox Live Experience as from the official release from Microsoft:

Xbox LIVE Gold members can select their music preferences to explore and discover new songs and artists from a library of more than 3.5 million songs. Skip, “ban,” or “love” tracks to tailor the radio station to your tastes.

Facebook and Xbox LIVE join forces to connect you with your friends as you interact with the largest entertainment and gaming network on TV. Share real-time status updates and photos with your friends on Facebook, or share your favorite gaming moments on Facebook right from your television.

Keep connected to your friends and family by reading and posting “Tweets” on the Twitter service from the comfort of your living room via your Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE. You can quickly and easily read, reply, and post updates online right from your Xbox 360.

Zune comes to Xbox LIVE to deliver instant-on 1080p HD streaming video on your Xbox 360 console. It delivers the selection of a video megastore, in the highest possible clarity and with the convenience of cable. Watch the movies and TV shows you want, when you want them, with instant-on 1080p streaming video and 5.1 surround sound with no downloads and no delays.
