No doubt a fair few are aware of this but I thought it was worth posting (pasted from IGN) "Xbox Live 3.0 The latest update for Xbox Live is rumored to have a ton of new features that are actually quite useful. Rumored to be released around April this year, the 3.0 update should include: Voice Mail - Send your friends 15-second voicemails any time you send a friend request or game invitation. Title Managed Storage - Store information on the Xbox Live servers. Global storage is used to store rosters, weather patterns, and such, while per-user/per-title storage will give each gamer 32 KB of storage to store playbooks, settings, and other personal data. Benefits include not having to use memory cards to transport information. Family Title ID - Lets users share information across up to four supported games. For example, a user-created sports team can be automatically transferred across a number of titles. Teams - Create a team for a multiplayer game and have it - and its records - carry over each time you play a game. Each supporting game will offer its own set of rules. Competitions - Player- or publisher-created competitions will let gamers play in automated in-game elimination tournaments. Teams and individual participants are expected to be supported. Messaging - Players will have the ability to send and receive messages - voice or text - in any supported game. Updated Statistics and Clan Support - The ability to create "units" of players, complete with stat-tracking. Improved statistical data for individual games. We tried to contact Microsoft for an official statement but have not heard back from the company at time of publish. "
