For the most part, I’m not offended by the new community features added to Xbox Live last month. I use Twitter and Facebook, and seeing Facebook pictures on my wide screen is pretty cool. But Microsoft really dropped the ball with last.fm. I’m a pretty active user of last.fm and I was excited when I heard it was going to the 360. But now that I’ve used it, I’m pretty disappointed. I can’t start the last.fm option and stream music in the background, I can only listen by leaving the app running.
Until I can stream my last.fm music and play some Hexic HD, it’s another useless feature to me.
