Any of you who are owners of an Xbox 360 and happen to be connected to the internet will notice, or have already noticed that there was a mandatory dashboard update last night.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t Microsoft surprising us with an early release of the new dashboard, avatars and all. Instead, Major Nelson has said that the update contains code to ‘prepare for future growth of the service.’
So, we all have to download a motivational speech for our Xbox 360’s? Well, whatever works I guess. The new dashboard update will be available in the fall (Spring for us). Whether or not it’s going to be worth all the fuss, now that’s a different story altogether.
