Xbox 360 System Update rolling out (no new feature)

I wanted to let you know that the team has 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. If you are signed into LIVE already, you may be signed out and asked to accept the update and you’ll be back online in a few moments.  

There are no new features or changes in this update. This update is preparation for additional system enhancements (Facebook/Twitter/Last.FM) that will arrive later this year.

Again, there are no new features in this update.

    Funny you should say that…. My FaceBook friends are starting ‘MySpace’ my area with apps – I visit FaceBook far than I’d like to admit, but I stumbled upon something that might interest you. Log into your FaceBook account, then go to Account>Application Settings. Then choose SHOW: Allowed to Post (dropdown menu) and scroll to the VERY bottom. I did not change any of my settings, but I think if you want to, you can disable it. I hope we can some how divide the gamers and the non-gamers.



    @mik29: Yes I know there’s multiplayer in the final version of Brutal Legend. I was referring to how there isn’t any part of it playable in the demo. The gameplay in the demo is single-player only.

    updating last night. 5 minutes after in the middle of Ultimate Alliance 2 it froze up. 5 minutes after that 3 RRoD…Hopefully I’m still under warranty. Lame!

    “Major-any news on the SKY TV thing and when its coming to the UK?”

    An article in October’s Sky Movies magazine says October.

    If the article is accurate then I’d assume that the other services are likely to launch at the same time.

    i have reason to believe this update is connected to the ODST leak

    This update fixed an issue for me (I’m the only one I know of with this issue). My game library section was stuck to an old 2006 list and nothing new that I played would show up in the recently played list. After the update, the recently played list works as expected now. Thank you! I think an engineer fixed a rare null pointer exception.

    I’ve been on the phone with Xbox Live now for about 2hrs. I still can’t get on Xbox Live. I don’t know what they did or what’s going on with my Xbox. I could connect to live just fine before this crappy update.


  • ZombieMMMBrains

    Anyone still having a problem? If so how’d you fix it?

    For me, once the update has started it’ll give me the error message “Update Failed Can’t download the update, open System Settings and select Network Settings, Test Xbox LIVE Connection ” So i do that and everything will look fine and when it gets to test the Xbox Live Connection the bar will go about half way then the same update will pop up, fail….. and repeat the process. I have no idea what to do.

    Okay, after being on the phone with Xbox Live for 3.5hrs (of which 1.5hrs was speaking with reps)they had me format my hard drive and that seemed to get the update to work. Of course I lost my stages on different games and had to start over I’m just happy it’s online now. The interesting part was the last guy I spoke with said that my gamertag was active in the system but not reaching their server, wtf is that all about?

    Do we REALLY need either Facebook OR Twitter available via XBL?! Both aren’t only just trendy(they’ll fall out of popularity as fast as they appeared), and not really somethign the average gamer or XBL/360 user will have much if any use for.Alot of us have ben asking for a BROWSER for a long time that would be far, far more useful and make alot more sense.Someone could even access Facebook/Twitter through the browser if for whatever strange reason they may have.


  • Fingleberries

    Seriously, though. Would you really want a browser on your console? Think of all the extra junk and temporary internet files that will start clogging up your HDD and you’ll need to defrag the disk to keep your loading times for games up.

    In general, no thanks …

    Although I feel the same about Facebook / Twitter. A nice add-on for some users, but not for me (I can’t be bothered with them on PC either :-))
