The fifth aniversary of Xbox Live is coming very soon and today, Microsoft unveiled some of the key features that will be in the annual fall update. The first new feature is a parental timer which gives parents control of how long their children are playing without telling them. The next great feature will be something called Xbox Classics that will appear on the Xbox Live Marketplace. It pretty much is a "virtural console" for original Xbox games. Halo, Fable, Psyconauts, Fusion Frenzy, Crimson Skies: Road to Revenge, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, and Burnout 3: Takedown will be among the first games to hit the service. This is a great lineup of some of the greatest Xbox games of all time(except for Crash). Each game will cost 1200 MS points or about $15. A great announcement about movies on demand on Xbox Live. Warner Bros. announced that new and upcoming movies like The Dark Knight, The Assassination of Jesse James and I Am Legend will be coming to the service in 2008. The fall update is scheduled to come out on December 4, 2007.
