Xbox 360 Destination Arcade Coming Soon

Major Nelson reveals that next week, Microsoft is releasing “another way to browse content on Xbox LIVE Arcade,” called “Destination Arcade.” It aims to enable users to “discover new games and content you enjoy through an easy-to-use visual browser.” I’ve written a post about how over-organized Xbox Live is, and so the idea of being able to “sort by price, community rating, and more” isn’t particularly exciting. Hopefully, the Destination Arcade manages to have a more user-friendly, logical user interface–because that’s what it needs the most. Furthermore, the release will include a “recommendation engine & visual browser app will be available in the US on July 14th from the Games Marketplace section of the dashboard,” which allows you to rate games and see what your friends like.
