  • Xbox Live Update

    http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Xbox-Das...ews-11244.html

    Don't know if any have heard, but supposedly there is a new update coming out that might render some old Xbox consoles useless.

    Anybody know anything about this?

    Sweet! I hope it breaks mine. I knew they were coming out with a new disc format, so I was curious as to how this would affect some of the older consoles with different disc readers.

      Those who get rendered useless are a lucky crowd!

        My console is fairly old. I think I just passed either the 5 or 6 year mark?

        I would be thrilled if I got a new (FREE!) console due to this.

          I have a pretty early version of the original 360. I'm curious if mine will go belly up.

              My first XBox was from '07, the AV input broke in it. My newest one is from '09, I wouldn't be incredibly pissed if mine broke because I still have a PS3 as well. But I've had some amazing experiences with it, and would hate to lose it.

                No need to worry. The issues with system errors seem to relate to previous Xbox updates, NOT the one coming out tonight.

                [UPDATE]: Microsoft's Major Nelson has posted a clarification on his website regarding the cause of the disc read errors that having been popping up, which should ease the minds of anxious gamers.

                On his blog, Nelson fingers an old update as the cause of the errors, not the new update which will increase disc size:

                "Clarification time! The console replacement plan that is the subject of some of today’s headlines is related to a previous update, NOT the system update that has been in public beta and will be deployed shortly.

                "The new disc format that is part of the beta has been rigorously tested across all Xbox 360 models and there are no known compatibility issues.

                "Hope that clears a few things up."

                So when the new update rolls out tomorrow, don't worry about hitting that "Accept" button.

                  Who is actually worrying?

                  A new slim xbox for free or my old turd? Hmmm, tough choice.

                    Exactly, the only worrying I was doing was that it wouldn't break my first gen 360.

                            I got the update this morning at around 6am, I already have a slim so I doubt any issues will happen, especially when they say it's only a small number off one boxes.

                              It's really time for new consoles. These things just weren't made for 10 year life cycles.
