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 receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. This update addresses interruption issues that some Xbox LIVE users may have experienced when playing a limited number of Xbox 360 games.

There are no other changes or enhancements in this update…in other words no new features.

This update will be rolled out to all Xbox LIVE members around the world over the space of a few hours, so you may not get prompted for the update immediately.


Thanks for your patience.

    Yay for P2P technology! i pay $50dlls for a very laggy service.

    When we will get the 1 vs 100 feature???….it was shown so often

    For you guys complaining about a “laggy” guide (wrong terminology, slow is actually an easier word as well), try this:

    1. Turn Auto Sign in off.
    2. Turn the 360 off.
    3. Turn it back on, signed out.
    4. Clear your cache.
    5. Reboot.

    My guide was so unbearable slow on the NXE I was about to send my system in. Make sure you follow the steps because it does work, or at least help. Deleting the marketplace content file might help as well.

    Also, is there any list of the games that were fixed, or is there no list? Does it just affect a bunch of them?

    If I’m filing complaints about people or sending messages playing COD 4 / 5 it’s horrendously slow.

    We shouldn’t have to use a “Hidden Feature” to make things work temporarily and as for flaunting a new feature that uses P2P technology instead of hosted.. well.. bad crack.

    I’d have my old dashboard back in a flash.

    Xbox Live runs like crap for me on my Comcastic 30Mb/5Mb connection. Even with my $200 gaming router, DOCSIS 3.0 modem, etc. Hurray!

    The update didn’t fix the disconnection issue I was having with my friend playing RE5 co-op campaign over Live 😦 We still get disconnections without reason. The interesting thing is that the private chat that we have going doesn’t drop out when the session disconnects, so we are both still connected to Live without issue. It seems the game is buggy.
