Some early risers or heavy induced zombie gamer’s were prompt to a update when they were powering up or in the middle of game play earlier today. Major Nelson from Xbox Live released some details on the latest system update over on his blog.
While it being mandatory, it’s not vague on description. Improving the performance of your Xbox 360 from their end through Xbox Live being the most simplest answer possible.
From the Major himself:
I wanted to let you know that the team has just released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE. Starting today when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you’ll receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. If you are signed into LIVE already, you may be signed out and asked to accept the update and you’ll be back online in a few moments.
This update will increase performance and is part of our continued effort to provide the best possible Xbox LIVE experience. In this update, we are providing a fix to a color issue that some were experiencing, and it will be immediately notable in the dashboard. The fix is also being applied by partners to their apps on Xbox LIVE, which we expect to roll out over the coming months.
