Rumor Dept.: New Xbox 360 Dash Nov. 25th, Using Some Apple Tech

The freshly designed, Silverlight-powered Xbox 360 dash may be coming November 25th is a report from GigaOM is correct. Microsoft has yet to make any announcement or even a shot at entering a beta as of press time.

The new dash would then go live Black Friday, thus causing some to rush their stampeding deal-hunting on one of the holiday’s biggest shopping dates to download the visually appealing re-imagining.

Of more interest for this fourth go-around within Microsoft’s hardware (again assuming the report is correct), the new streaming partners will not be using Microsoft’s streaming technology, Smooth Streaming. Instead, third parties will be utilizing Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming for video, which probably doesn’t say much for Microsoft’s work.
