The next time you pop in Rainbow Six Vegas into your Xbox 360 (and you are connected to Xbox Live) you’ll be prompted to accept an auto update. The folks over at Ubi have posted details of what the AU contains over at their forums. Time for me to fire up the MP this weekend.

Child’s Play dinner tonight

I am headed to the annual Childs Play charity dinner and auction tonight here in the Seattle area. It should be interesting to see what Gabe and Tycho look like in tuxedos, I hope I can tell them apart since theyll be dressed the same. ;)  Can’t go? No problem! Just keep an eye on Kikos Flickr page for semi-official photos from the event. Even if you cant attend, there are still plenty of opportunity to get involved – all you need to do it just head over to the Childs Play website for the list of affiliate organizations in your area that need your support for this great cause.

Wireless Headset issues?

I spoke to the accessories team regarding the feedback from some members who have experienced issues while using the Xbox 360 Wireless Headset, including difficulty syncing the headset to the console, reception interference and audio sensitivity. The team wanted to let you know they are committed to providing the highest quality accessories for Xbox 360 and they would like to assist in troubleshooting and resolving those issues, whether by replacing or repairing the units under warranty. If you are experiencing any of these issues with the Wireless Headset please call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (or your local support line.)

Edit: Made a couple of additions.
