I thought that clicking sound was my headset being broken .

muddy94942938d ago

lol nah. Its all cool, just microsoft being annoying lol

KionicWarlord2222938d ago

Ah ok.

I guess this makes it feel more like a chatroom .

Marcelles252938d ago

the disc eject thing always pissed me off i never knew why you couldn't do that, i mean you could do it on th trey why not on the 360.
but you could do it if the tray was open right?

YEEEEEEEES!!! My eject button broke and I have to use my remote to open it, now I won't!

Good read. Did not know about the clear cache or sooped up primetime channel.

In my opinion the three best new features of the update are the speed increases, the smaller game installs, and the ability to rate content in the marketplace.

All in all I am really impressed with this update. I don't know why some journalists are acting like it is disappointing that we aren't getting the Facebook, twitter and Last.fm features with this update. I was under the impression that we would see an update in the Fall with those features and I didn't even know that we would be getting an update before that, so to get this update so soon is awesome. Then, in a couple of months, it will be even better

Have you ever sent a voice msg, only for your friend to tell you to resend it cause there was no voice?

Well, it will now detect whether your mic is connected or muted - as your making the msg.

KionicWarlord2222938d ago

Yeah...that was a pretty cool feature .

This update was much appreciated .

"Smaller Game Install Sizes:
You may now install games that are smaller than the previous 3 gigabyte limit. This allows some bonus disks and smaller games to be installed onto your hard drive."

Any examples? I can't think of any at the top of my head. At first I confused this feature with smaller game install sizes. I haven't tried to reinstall any games yet.

The Smaller Game Install Sizes is a great new feature. I wish they'd give some minor detail, just to satisfy curiosity.

Go Gaming Giant2938d ago

wow good read, didn't realize any of that existed in the new update

usern4g2938d ago

Agreed, I hadnt caught a few of these until this article. The Faster Gamertag Recovery is appreciated, generally people get a little ansy when you've got a room-full waiting to play.

Ooh, i didn't know the primetime channel was tidied up - will need to take a gander later.

Just wish they had a 1vs100 at a time that's suitable for parents who can't just drop things* around bath/bedtime and run off to the console

*disclaimer - i do not mean dropping my children [into a bath]...
I still would like two more things (at least):
1- MSP gifting.
2- optical audio delay. I can do it on my sky box to get the desired latency result, why not this?
