A problem with the Xbox 360 system update has been found by Microsoft in the feature where you're able to change your Live ID (email account) associated with your Gamertag.
they had going into their current forums (2 years ago) from the upgrade to XBL 3.0. But it won't effect me cause I had no intentions of changing my email.
it could be even worse. you might be skychad1111's mom
LMAO TYPICAL PS3 FANBOY TO USE MOM JOKES..
Typical Xbox fanboy to bash the PS3 without owning one. Oh dude and by the way the caps lock button is on the left side of your keyboard right below the Tab key and right above the Shift key.
It wasnt a joke. Your mom seriously shoulda had an abortion.
thats not really a problem to me, i only posted on the xbox forums like once
my bro linked his email to my xbox account. now i can change it to mine.
i was worried for a second... this isn't a big deal! i'm sure it will get fixed anyways and the pros vastly outweigh the cons.
And next year we get more awesome goodness with Ninja Gaiden 2, Too Human, plus the great Lost Odyssey !!!
lol, you can quit the hyperbole now
last upgrade was 2 years ago? anyway just give it time im sure it will all work perfect
Wrong Spot for my comment
every update microsoft releases theres always a problem with it no matter what.
I guess I am the only lucky one on the planet then. I have NEVER had an issue with ANY XBL update. You should feed your azz ... it is talking again !!
will keep away the likes of goons like blazefart, firstWife , etc...you know the typical xtwats
thats the problem, it's ok they can keep it.
you're just still jealous that we get splinter cell 5 next, and well.........you don't. maybe ever at this rate..... :D
who gives a crap about splinter cell,us sony fans get MGS 4 well im going to get both,but Snake would kick the crap out of Sam.
I don't think I have ever made a post on that forum ... ever !! But good to hear it was found and being fixed.
That stinks, but I'm relieved that that's all it was. It won't affect me at all since I never post there. I'm sure they'll have a patch in a few days.
wow is that all ps3 fanboys can come up with, MGS 4 well enjoy your one game. now gtfo this is a 360 thread, anyway i cant wait for the update
Hopefully this is a minor issue and doesn't affect too many people. Otherwise, this might be the best update the system's gotten yet.
Wow! that's pretty sad. This has got to be the worst update yet. Its all stupid children lock-outs and timers! weak!
So its a bad thing to let parents better control how much time their kids play games? Maybe now they will get their collective buts outside and exercise, because you know that whole obesity thing is kind of a big deal... Get it BIG deal...haha I crack myself up sometimes. But in seriousness this *could* be a great tool for parents who actually try and stay involved with their kids lives. But I'm sure the kids on this site will disagree for obvious reasons.
"So its a bad thing to let parents better control how much time their kids play games?" No, i agree, but im not a kid, nor have kids nor want them, so to me this is not only useless but its lame. Besides most of these little "angels" are just all pieces of sh!t anyways, let's get real, they aint innocent little kids. Most of them are racist little sh!t talking fvcks! "Maybe now they will get their collective buts outside and exercise, because you know that whole obesity thing is kind of a big deal... Get it BIG deal...haha I crack myself up sometimes." And once again, i agree, and yes i "get it", but Im sorry that was corny, lol! "But in seriousness this *could* be a great tool for parents who actually try and stay involved with their kids lives." No they wont, most parents nowadays are just degenerate bastards who need to grow up themselves. They are not like our parents were. They are us, having kids.
I know it corny, but I bet you laughed anyways. Sometimes the corny jokes are just as good as the well good ones. Like the muffin joke, its stupid but I bet you laughed the first time you heard it! And I know most wont use the parental controls. Thats what I did the ** around could. But thats just a failing on the parents for not getting involved in their kids lives, a real failing into today society. And this control that MS is giving is just another tool that parents could and should use, like the ESRB rating... Because we know how well that gets used, when it would take all of 1 min. to learn how it works.
Yeah i gotta admit, it was ;-)
that article was wriiten in april?
The article was written today. Australia has a different date format to the US and Japan.
Actually It's just America (and the Philippines i think) that use mm/dd/yy, Japan uses yyyy/mm/dd, the rest of the world uses dd/mm/yyy. But yes it was written today. It's probably not a problem that will take too long to fix, but their testers shoudl be shot. It's a pretty major bug to slip into the public unnoticed.
Has anyone tried playing divx files yet?
I am Streaming divx files off my PC onto my 360 and it works just fine. It doesn't work under media center but thats ok.
I'm at work can't wait to go home and chuck some divx dvds in it. Although my dvd player plays divx vids as well but it cannot do 720p. Edit: Who the fcuk disagreed? Freaking sony droids again. anyway divx, xvid files are working, just copied one tv show on flashdrive and played it on my 360. Good job M$
what was the point with this crappy article, all it does is put down the accomplishments of the new update yes it has a slight problem with the forums but it will be fixed, and im sure nobody needs to desperately change their live ID, that bad. when i first saw this article i was expecting another brick scenario. i really do not know what is more pathetic the fact that this article was even posted or that it is currently at 650 degrees, whoever approved this should be ashamed, now can someone post some important news about the live update plz
...in getting the word out that there is an issue. It's another source that might keep someone from changing their ID without knowing it will cause a problem.
Finally I have been waiting for this my I was 17 when I made my account so no if I link it to something else a new windows live account ill get all the advertisements and stuff, yayayayayay! finally!!!!
I've been wanting to change the email address linked to my gamer tag for a long time. I've never posted on the Xbox Forum. I'm actually just thrilled about the feature.
...the update inspired a yawn only... I have downloaded and restarted my console and the changes, whilst evident, don't equate to much at all if you live in New Zealand. Sure you now get the opportunity to download original Xbox games but who would want to? They cost too much and they take up a huge amount of space on the pultry 20GB (of which only 13.1GB is usable) HDD. We don't get any type of desirable media in our neck of the woods. As for streaming media from the PC to the console. I give this update a 5 out of 10 for interest factor.
well thats not that big of a problem
now it takes forever to compare games with friends and my friends tag reads 0 achievements.
there goin to make another update to fix this. just goes to show how ms will listen to its users ehh ehhmm(so*y)
Oh really? "Cough"
HAHAHAHA that made me laugh - good one...
You pay for sh!t in its purest form, and you get sh!t. Hahaha
Well, Sony didn't get 2.00 right. And now MS didn't get the fall update right. They both get the big WTF this time around.
