Xbox 360 System update now available (no new features)

A few minutes ago, the team released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE. Sometime over the next few hours when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you'll recieve a prompt to accept this mandatory update. This update contains code to 'prepare for future growth of the service.' There are no other changes or enhancements in this update…in other words no new features.

To be clear: This is not the new Xbox experience update. That will come in the Fall.

Takes 2 seconds on the 360. You don't have to download and install them like on the PS3.

They actually fixed that little problem. Now when we download firmware updates for PS3, they automatically install and then reset the system without any manual assistance. No more "Press PS Button over and over for no reason." We also get the option of having the system automatically turn off once the update's done.

Another example of Sony Learns from Microsoft. =]

That doesn't even make any sense, are you talking from a update working behind the scenes perspective? seemingly not doing anything because you can't see what its doing?. XBL has always recieved maintenance or preparation updates, you're just tracking 360 news more than ever now as most PS3 fans are doing the same.

How you are getting agree's when you post is nonsense is beyond me.

PimpDaddy3723d ago

Patience is a virtue I guess.

marionz3723d ago

c'mon the new dash update would be cool but how could anyone think this was it? its not ready for release yet everybody knows that

foodbox3723d ago

It was clearly announced for Fall.

But the SDF want to build up a false "oh, disappointment" meme for nothing.

See the first post.

The New Xbox Experience (NXE) is going to be epic, new features, new gameplay types (Primetime is the *most* under-discussed element of NXE) and a whole new UI.

I'm very excited for NXE, but I damn well know it wont come until the Fall. Its the beginning of August FFS...

Dont worry, N4G does all it can to spread FUD about MS... nothing changes around here.

Man i am glad Microsoft knows how to make operating system updates harmless.

JOLLY13723d ago

Some people aren't happy that Microsoft's updates are so easy and quick. Who wouldn't like fast and efficient updates? Sad stuff!

thereapersson3723d ago

Which in a way, deserves disagrees

Masko3723d ago

if u hate MS OSes so much. dont use Windows. If ur using Windows right now ur being a real hypocrite

The Wood3723d ago

you dont have to love something to use it but i get your point and at the same time you should only criticise something IF you actually use it.

Shane Kim3723d ago

Believe me, if we had a choice we wouldn't be using Windows. The OS's who are available for PC's are even worse than Windows.
