Xbox’s “Party Mode” for Netflix removed with new update

I’ll be honest, I haven’t delved into the new Xbox update much at all.  Whenever I get on I join a party of friends and jump straight into whatever game to be played.  Its a shame to hear, however, that with the new update an old favorite of ours has been removed: the Netflix party mode.

This mode allowed you and your friends the ability to watch a cheesy movie simultaneously (well, it didn’t need to be cheesy, but let’s face it: 90% of the movies on there were) while talking to each other over the voice chat and making gestures with your Xbox avatar person.  It was a pretty hokey feature and never seemed to get much support, but it was a fun distraction occasionally.  I don’t imagine any petition will be much help here, but if you feel strongly about getting the feature back, I suggest you sign this one.

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.
