If you’ve logged into Xbox LIVE very recently, you would have been met with a request to download a new system update, but what does this mysterious update do exactly?

The Xbox 360 update hasn’t been officially announced yet, so details are low on the ground, but El33tonline Twitter friend @Antonov_26 tipped us off to the update, saying that it’s “not small.”

We fired up the ol’ Xbox 360 and, sure enough, we were prompted to download the update as well. We’ll keep an eye out for any details on any new additions or security revisions.


Graeme ‘AceyBongos’ Boyd at Xbox EMEA responded to our request for information on the update thus:

“Just a background update, nothing major. Will try to get more clarity, maybe [Major Nelson] will post later.”

Thanks Graeme!

Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb followed that up by tweeting:

“Xbox LIVE System update out today. No big changes just an update to default settings that will only be visible to certain users in the EU”

[End of Update]
