Straight from MajorNelson.com...

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.

Ah, nice 1 dude!
Was wondering why it just kicked me off Live!

Thanks for the news. I don't have it yet but at least when it comes I will know what it fixes even though I haven't experienced problems over live with the games I play

i was wondering what that was about. everyone i was partied up with got disconnected a couple minutes after i signed off.

04-02-2009, 02:11 PM
Thanks. I just signed in and I was wondering why a system update was available. Does anyone know exactly what was fixed, or which games were addressed with this update? I'd like to know.

04-02-2009, 02:35 PM
Ah, cool. Thankfully I played in the morning then took a break, and when I went on again the update was there. Would have sucked if I got kicked off of something to download it.

04-02-2009, 04:00 PM
thanks for the info cause I was caught off guard with the update. I didn't know what it was for.

04-02-2009, 04:02 PM
Ah thats why. Thanks a bunch :)

I signed on and the update took less than 10 seconds, so it was nothing for me to get all too concerned about. Any fix is better than no fix at all I guess.

Thanks for the info.

I was playing FEAR 2 earlier when I noticed that I was offline. So I got this update when I signed in it's good that they have released the update to fix these issues. Publishers should be doing the same or acting quicker than they currently do when they release games that have unnobtainable achievements and are made aware of them !

I just got th update and was wondering what it did. So, thanks for the post.

04-02-2009, 07:55 PM
I was coincidentally listening to last Sunday's podcast with Hyrb on it. He was mentioning this very system update and one of the things they're addressing is piracy with new checks, especially those of us here that like to play their 'legit' games weeks before street release. :p

I was at school.

Guess I got lucky, updated as soon as I turned my 360 on. Doesn't seem to have done much though.

04-02-2009, 09:40 PM
my xbox wont download it for some reason :(

I was just getting ready to play Burnout Paradise. Luckily I just signed on from the dashboard and was about to hit "close tray" lol

Who's this Major Nelson guy?
Does he work for xbox or something?
How does he know everything?

04-02-2009, 11:18 PM
Thanks for the info, was wondering why I had an update.

04-03-2009, 12:16 AM
How very unexciting

04-03-2009, 01:08 AM
I wonder in Burnout Paradise is included in the "limited" number of games.

Sometimes when I am online and a race starts, no joke, everyone in the game's, or at least a vast majority, Xbox freezes stone cold.

That's sarcasm, ya? If not, use Google.

04-03-2009, 02:00 AM
Cool thanks 4 the info...i was wonderin if it did anything special (new features like) but guess not

04-03-2009, 03:32 AM
i got the update and ever since my xbox has been having issues. it freezes out of nowhere, sometimes when i am doing nothing, the screen goes crazy and i think i will go nuts if my warranty doesnt cover it if something is wrong :(:(:(

EDIT: freezes 3 minutes after being turned on, everytime

FURTHER EDIT: turned out to that the timing was purely a coincidence. it just ended leading up to the ring of death :( :( :( :( :(, took a day though

04-03-2009, 08:33 AM
Crap update IMO. :p

04-03-2009, 08:39 AM

04-03-2009, 09:26 AM
I was wondering why I had a system update yesterday. Shame it's nothing interesting :(

04-03-2009, 11:53 AM
Ah that's what it was.

04-03-2009, 12:06 PM
thanks for posting this, i was wondering what it was for. i really think microsoft should say what its for whilst it updates so we atleast know what it's updating.

04-03-2009, 02:50 PM

I was wondering why I just got the update, Logged on here, and xbox360achievements.org comes through for me again telling me why it happened.
