Does anyone know what will be included in this marketplace update. I hope its worth the day of no LIVE play.

05-02-2006, 03:05 PM
Yea I heard about this yesterday. I'm not expecting to play today anyway.

05-02-2006, 03:11 PM
Yea, I'm not really planning on playing much today either... but I hope that the update is definitely worthwhile.

Ive heard rumours of an extra blade to support the camera and as k_dog said a server update to handle the expected upsurge in downloads with e3

05-02-2006, 03:13 PM
more time to play Guild Wars for me:D

05-02-2006, 04:42 PM
maybe the option of doing something else in the dash while shit is downloading will be added, maybe

This is just them testing out the bandwith limits of Xbox Live in preparation for E3 week. There are gonna be craploads of freeloaders d/ling trailers, demos, playing games, etc.
