Xbox 360 to receive update
Simon Telford / 5 years ago
Microsoft will start pushing a new update to Xbox 360 owners today. According to reports the update contains no new features as such, but instead includes necessary code that will set the Xbox up for some background technology that will be necessary for future improvements later.
The update is not very big and will come down to your Xbox via Xbox Live, and it will require a reboot. Some have said it will prepare the Xbox for the Avatar Kinect which may arrive on July 27th.
Avatar Kinect is a collection of chat tools which will seamlessly integrate with Xbox Live chat and party chat functionality to animate a user’s avatar as well as allow users to make and upload video starting their avatar.
While Microsoft has not confirmed this story, the timing seems almost perfect giving them just over a week before the Avatar Kinect is released.
