When you turn on your Xbox 360 today after a long, hard day at the office, your online decimation of noobs might be briefly interrupted by a prompt asking you to update your console.
Exciting stuff, new updates. So what fantastic new features does this one bring?
Not a damned thing, I’m afraid. According to Xbox’s Major Nelson, today’s update adds â€œno new features that will show up once your system has been updated.â€ â€œThis update,â€ says the Major â€œis preparation for additional system enhancements coming to Xbox 360 later this year.â€
One of those system enhancements, if rumours are anything to go by, could be Avatar Kinect – a virtual chat room that uses your Xbox Avatar that’s slated to become a new addition to Kinect Fun Labs, and could be available as early as next Wednesday, July 27th. there’s no word on exactly when the full system update – the one that adds extra storage space to the 360’s disc format – will go live, only that it’s expected in the Northern hemisphere’s â€œFall.â€
