TechBytes: Microsoft Updates Xbox 360

The software update will provide new content channels.

December 6, 2011— -- In today's TechBytes, watching video services on your Xbox 360.

Microsoft is releasing a software update to the Xbox 360 today.

Among the new features is the ability to stream content from providers like Netflix, YouTube and ESPN and search for movies across several services.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Since its debut less than a month ago, "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" has become the bestselling video game of all time.

But CNET's Dan Ackerman isn't sure it lives up to all the hype.

"It really is more of the same," he said. "The graphics don't really get that much better. They don't really add that many new game modes. But it's almost like you have to get the new version because everyone else is gonna be playing the new version."

If you purchase additional avatars to represent you in the game during the next 10 days, Activision will donate the proceeds to a charity that helps veterans.

The Call of Duty Endowment helps with job placement and training to help service members make the transition back to civilian life.
