Xbox 360 System Update coming this Tuesday (no new features)

Sometime during the early morning hours tomorrow (Pacific Time, Tuesday, October 11th) we are pushing out a mandatory system update. If you are signed into LIVE already, you may be signed out. Once the update has been completed, you’ll be able to sign-in again and back online in a few moments.

This is a general system maintenance update and there are no new features that will show up once your system has been updated.

     I hope this update will ban all the modders and pirated game players. Please Microsoft implement a way to ban cheating modders more efficiently.

    This must be for that FREE Gears of War DLC coming out in a while because it is on the disc itself.

    Are they doing an update preview for the black Friday update or is that Microsoft Internal only this time. I hear that Lakeview may not be quite ready yet.

    If it doesn’t have new features there would be no need for an update? Why the secrecy??

    Hopefully it will stop all the hackers and cheaters in Cod 4, and World at War. I can’t even play a legitimate game anymore without some sort of cheats, infections, or a spam message filling up my screen. I wish Microsoft would beef up the pressure on Infinity Ward and Treyarch to patch their games. Or, just disable online access to them completely. It is giving a bad image to both developers, and Microsoft that there isn’t anything being done. Heck, I’d volunteer to be a “undercover moderator” and ban the offenders myself.

        I don’t know about you guys (presumably in the US), but over here in the UK you’re allowed to make at least one personal backup of a disc, providing you own the original.

        Nobody needs to back up game disks nowadays. Those that say they do are doing it for nefarious reasons only. You know it. I know it. We all know it. Stop trying to kid yourselves it’s anything other.

        You are only allowed a backup if its IDENTICAL to the original but due to copy protection, you can’t do that.

        The act of bypassing copy protection is usually illegal.  Also any copies you make are not identical to the original, so again illegal.

        The reason you generally still can get away with making a backup is because if they take you to court they have to prove that you caused them financial loss due to your actions, which for a normal backup they clearly did not lose anything.

        Bottom line though, they are well within their rights to continue to block your ability to use that backup because its not an identical copy.  If it WAS identical, they wouldn’t be able to tell its a backup anyway nor block it.

        no i well in my rights to do copys ..  As a customer you can copy games for your personal use, although video game companies don’t want their games to be copied. This is sure.
