Microsoft has released the first XBox 360 Software Update. The next time you connect to XBox Live, your XBox should automatically download the update. What can you expect from the January 2006 System Update? Look for all this excitement:
- Improvements to the Xbox Guide.
- Option to retain your saved games when you delete a profile.
- Increased accuracy of “last time played.”
- Network configuration improvements for Xbox Live members in the Netherlands.
- More detailed messaging for unreadable disk or region errors.
Except to the fine folks in the Netherlands, this is possibly the least exciting software update ever. The real reason behind this update is probably to stop the XBox 360 modding and hacking that has occured since the unprotected Xbox 360 retail demo disk.
