Xbox360Rally.com has a long list of what is rumoured to be included in the fall update. While most of the list is just optimisations and minor extras a few things did seem interesting…

1. Clan blade – I am starting to see the point of this
2. Grouping friends by games and other filtering – finally
3. Picture in Picture DVD playback – So the wife can watch while I play… (how I am going to fit my COD4 disc and Sleeping Beauty DVD into the same drive is still a mystery though)
4. Estimated time remaining on downloads – Because Microsoft has always been good at this 🙂
5. Screensavers, contain your excitement…

Anyway the entire list is after the jump, no DivX support and no parental timer so I don’t think this is the entire list yet…
