Original Halo to come with Xbox 360 Dashboard update on December 4 - Image 1It just came to our attention that Microsoft will be implementing the Xbox 360 Dashboard Fall update on December 4 and we are pretty sure that you will be pleasantly surprised with the software additions.

The news originally came from video games site CVG which in turn got it from the Official Xbox Magazine staffers. Reportedly, the update will finally introduce the Video on Demand feature with the initial offerings coming from film studio Warner Bros.

The reports mentioned that movies will cost less than US 5 and can be viewed in 720p resolution. Quite interestingly, there are certain terms attached to this video download service:
  • You have 14 days to start watching a film once it has downloaded
  • Once you started watching a film, you have 24 hours to finish it
  • After that, the film deletes itself from your hard drive
Furthermore, the Fall update will also see the addition of original Xbox games that will be available for download. It was said that these games will cost 1,200 Microsoft Points each and expected titles to come out on day one include:
  • Halo
  • Fable
  • Fahrenheit
  • Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge
  • Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex
  • Burnout 3
