    Xbox 360 - Spring dashboard update

    Simple question really, is there going to be one? Steven, maybe you can shed some light?

    In an odd sort of way, I really like the dashboard updates. If I recall, MS said there'd be one each spring and one each fall - two each year.

    I like how they roll lots of funky new features into one big update and I was looking forward to seeing what the spring update would bring. However, having heard nothing about it, I'm now wondering if there will be one?

    Here's to hoping they don't screw something up in the process.

    The last update ("fall" update) happened in December, so if they are going to be every six months then it could be May or later for the "spring" update...

    I believe LIVE is going down at 0900 hours on 21/04/08. Could this be the start of the spring update?

    There is one due soon, but it adds no features as far as the user is concerned. Only development stuff

    edit - actually, its available now

    Re: Xbox 360 - Spring dashboard update

    Well, there was an update this week - not the Spring update though. The upcoming downtime is just for maintenance. Generally when a major update is due (Spring/Fall) there's a lot of noise explaining new features/upgrades/etc. This noise hasn't happened yet so the Spring update isn't ready.
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    The latest update was to be get ready for the spring update, so there definately will be one. Whether it will actually be in spring is another matter...

    Re: Xbox 360 - Spring dashboard update

    I saw a video of GTAIV starting up. It takes about a minute to load, looks like it's installing to the hard disk.

    This update, like has been mentioned, could be preparing for that. Hopefully it'll allow faster loading of the game, and ingame environs.
