We do know that at long last, the “Metro” update to the Xbox 360 dashboard has finally rolled out, but don’t get too excited just yet. In fact, it seems that there is quite a sizeable figure of Microsoft’s recently announced content partners who will not be able to make it to this particular “party”, where the more notable “casualties” would be Comcast’s Xfinity on-demand library, Verizon’s Fios live-tv service, as well as the HBO GO app.
Microsoft did mention a rather vague “early 2012” release timeframe for both the HBO and Xfinity, although it must be said that Verizon Wireless ought to be delivering Fios to Xbox Live sometime later this month. Dragged alongside with it would be SyFy, UFC, and a bunch of others. Ah well, I guess the adage that good things come to those who wait applies here.
