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.

    Just for comparison with our PS3 bretheren I timed the update from start to finish. Exactly 1 minute.

        No, I didn’t have my disc in the drive. However it doesn’t seem to be update-related, I think there was something wrong with the profile of  the second player, because this happened when trying to play split-screen. Thanks anyway.

      delete you profile data in gears of war 3. NOT your profile just the profile data for gears 3.

    They are.  This update was first, but the preview should be happening soon like later this week or next week.  Only Major Nelson knows.

    I’ve always wondered what exactly constitutes a “system maintenance update” ?  Bug fixes? Changes to the network layer for XBL?

    According to the microsoft connect website, they are now accepting new users for the public beta… However, I am signed in, and I don’t see any way to sign up…
    Anyone else notice this?
    Is anyone else seeing this message, and has anyone else been able to sign up?

    All you have to do is google (or bing) xbox live beta, and the connect website is one of the first results you get.

      yeah but not everyone does, but a much larger audience reads Major’s blog. Gotta be careful on what we write, lol. I’ve been checking this blog and the connect site about 5 times a day during this past 3 months now for an opportunity to be in the upcoming beta.. it will suck if I’m not able to get in
