New Dashboard Update For Xbox Live
If you were just in the middle of a Bad Company 2: Vietnam session and got disconnected for no reason, now you know why: Microsoft has announced two minor updates (one today, and one tomorrow). Xbox LIVE Dashboard update On Wednesday, January 19th we will issue a mandatory dashboard update that (re) enables the ‘Boot to Disc’ option in the Xbox 360 dashboard. After you accept the update, you’ll be able to set the option to boot to the Xbox 360 dashboard OR directly to the game you have in the tray when you power up your console. This option can be found in the System Settings. Xbox.com update Additionally, on Thursday January 20th the Xbox.com team will ship an update that contains a small update to the Gamercards. We’ve updated the Gamercard look and feel a bit and removed gamerzone from the card. Other than that, the same amount of information is on the card.
For an update that allegedly reinstates an old feature, it sure was sizable. A wise man would draw conclusions that Microsoft is tightening their security in the midst of all the PlayStation 3 hacker drama.
