I turned on my 360 and it immediately asked me to update. Does anyone know if todays update will fix any steering wheel issues? I took a look on Major Nelson's site, but there no reference yet to any update for today and, yes, before you ask, my box is fully updated so far.

People are asking about it on Major Nelson's blog via comments on the latest post.

It is probably one of those 'We-only-update-things-for-North-America' updates. I was hoping it would finally be the video marketplace for everyone else, clearly not.

Finally something that makes sense. People just jump to conclusions because of the timing. "Oh Gears maps come out tomorrow so they must have something to do with it"

Anyhow I found it very annoying because I was in the middle of playing Blue Dragon and at about 5am I get booted from live. Since I was about to get an achievement I didn't want it to be acquired so I tried to sign back in only being asked to update my dashboard.

Yes I stayed up all night playing Blue Dragon ;)

We have the actual marketplace, we just don't get stuff on it that isn't in the normal marketplace.

That's funny because GSL is the reason I'm playing BD instead of games with easier achievements LOL

After I downloaded the update my system froze and I got one red light. It scared the fucking shit out of me but everything seems to be in order now. *phew*

Wow. Has anyone been able to come up with some concrete info regarding this update?? I've learned, the hard way, to be very cautious with Microsoft updates. Their Windows XP 'updates' weren't always a step in the right direction.

Earlier today the team pushed out a dashboard update over Xbox Live. There is nothing major in this one, it just addresses a few performance and stability issues.

Cool. I've been getting dropped alot from Live! lately. Thought it was my internet service, but the cable modem would still show a steady connection and the computers would connect just fine. Hope this addresses that issue.

After reading some comments on xboxfanboy that were directed towards the update I found this:


I determined this morning that one of the fixes of the patch is that it greatly reduced the load time when trying to bring up your list of saved videos.

I'd call this anything but boring. With many shows and various game videos saved on my HDD, the load time annoyed the hell out of me, taking up to 60 seconds or greater.


So, that may have been one of the fixes in the update. I can only imagine how happy people must be. I was ecstatic when they fixed the load times for arcade games.

It did seem to take slightly longer than previous updates hence why we were all wondering if it was a significant update. I also have been discon'd several times because of Xbox Live not my connection so I do also hope this is overcome. It's getting tedious with all this going off and going on.
