on June 6, 2011 1:18 PM

It seems like every fall, Xbox Live gets a new facelift. At E3 2011, Microsoft is yet again claiming to possess an innovative new way to enjoy entertainment. The new dashboard is shown on stage and everything can be voice controlled. The young lady on stage said things such as “Xbox Music,” “Xbox Games,” and “Xbox Video” and these commands got you to where you wanted almost immediately.

Multiple new partnerships are said to have been made, and one of them is that YouTube is now part of Xbox Live. Another big partnership is with live television being implemented into Xbox Live. Now, you can enjoy your local channels on Xbox Live. No word yet on which networks are exactly on board for Xbox Live in the U.S.

Xbox Bing is coming to the new dashboard as well, and saying stuff like “Xbox Bing LEGO” will find you all the LEGO games and other things LEGO available on your Xbox 360.

More partnership announcements are said to be coming soon, so expect to hear more news coming soon.
