Turn off the Lights

Metro has landed on Xbox.com

Today has seen the unveiling of the new Metro style of the Xbox Live website. An update is expected soon for the dashboard itself, but as of now the Xbox.com is designed to show off what is to be expected from the new setup that has been dubbed Metro. 
The new social link takes you to the Metro style setup and allows gamers to connect with their friends on a deeper level. From this new setup you can now activate and check on beacons, one of the new features. Beacons allow you to set up a list of sorts that show others what you want to play. Finally, the Zune functionality allows you to search and initiate TV and Video download directly to your Xbox from any location.

As Metro rolls out, it will be interesting to see where this new look, much like Windows 7, will take the console. With promised Cloud Saving and 100% Kinect functionality yet to be launched, Metro has much more to show us all.
