Some gamers have been reporting issues with the recent Spring Update released for the Xbox 360. While we have received a couple of reports of choppy video in our forums, it appears users have been experiencing other problems too.
I think the only problem is the users, how can a patch affect some users and not others, it doesn't make any sense. I think the problem is between the controller and the chair.
Dude your crazy. Tell how I have anything to do with the fact that after I downloaded the update my 360 won't boot to the dash but loads the game instead?
Its an option you obviously havent turned on. The update gives you the "option" to boot to the dashboard. You also have the "option" to que 6 downloads, but it wont do it for you, you have to turn it on! Like #1 said: Its a problem between the controller and the chair!
I dono mine boots you have to go to the system blade and set it to go to the dashboard and not load the game
And that's also how these b.s. stories get blown out of proportion. You already posted this story days ago under the title "Spring Dashboard update bugs out". Your original post referenced XBOX360Fanboy's article. This one references PlanetXBOX360 which in turn references XBOX360Fanboy's article - SAME ARTICLE!!!!
Sucks for you :).
You have to change it first, it doesn't do it automatically. Go to system blade>setup>dash. I love how everything get blown out of proportion on the internet.
Why would it autopmatically make it boot to the dashboard and not the game? What if you want it to boot to the game instead of the dashboard? They gave you a CHOICE, not forcing you to boot to the game, just like not forcing you to purchase HD-DVD, so don't snap back at me greenlynx, like I said the problem is between the controller and the chair, and if you don't know what that means, the problem is you.
It either works for all of us or no of us. And mine works perfect except for that beam of light in the halo 3 video. I agree it's mostly the controller not understanding the features, we all got the same update. It is far more stable, mine hasn't frozen yet but everything does once it a while, it doesn't even take long to boot just restart if it happens. This wide spread problem rumor has sony written all over it, they did it with the dreamcast and they all ready tried to do it to the xbox 360 and it hit them back in the face.
Can anybody tell me if they have seen stretched out cars in story mode in CRAW?. I hope it's not my 360 and is just the game.
yet again the internet is hyping something out of nothing. Just cos 30 people have a problem out of 5million, is that a big problem? Give me a break (look around on forums, it's the same outspoken people with problems), it was all the same with the defective 360's at launch, 12,000- 17,000 is alot of bad units, don't get me wrong, but put it into context, out of 300,000 for North America, 300,000 for Europe and 100,000 for Japan, thats 12,000 out of 700,000. Doesn't sound bad now does it???
MS has done and outstanding job with the 360, the controller, games, tho we need more games, xbox live, as well as the updates. MS actually is with the consumer. You need to really just learn the systems functions and not be so quick to cry and lash out at MS they have made gaming such much better with the 360, never before have we had it so good, stop ya crying.
Since the update, Fight Night has been unplayable for me. During the loading screen the game will crash and I'm prompted with the "Clean Your Disc" error. I'm not sure if this is related to the update, or if my 360 is already dying on me in under 5 months. Anybody else experiencing this regularly with a game? It happened a few times with a new copy of Table Tennis on my machine as well...
Call microsoft, maybe you or someone in your household put in a dusty old disk and it stuck to the lens. You should pop in a disk cleaner into the xbox 360 and give it a try. You know they look like regular DVD but have brushes at the bottom and they clean the lens when you put in the disc, can't hurt you should give it a try.
I would say that after the update, that some users just don't know how to use it...and now say that there update is broke..thats insane....like #1 said...the problem is between the controller and the xbox360...
Hey let me rephrase what you said since some people might take controller literally and think you are talking about the xbox 360 controller. The problem is because of the lack of communication between the gamer and their xbox 360. All those features need to be enabled by the gamer, it won't just boot to dash you have to goto the system blade and enable it. Hey, the update works perfect for me and we all got the same update
NO PROBLEM HERE WITH THE NEW UPDATE. MY 360 RUNS JUST FINE.
Yea mine is great, I love the new features it's so awesome DL'ing things, and 6 things at that, but anyone else have their stuff stop DL'ing when playing a demo game?
