Mandatory Xbox LIVE Service Update

Mandatory Xbox LIVE Service Update

This morning, everyone who subscribes to Xbox LIVE should have received an email informing them of a mandatory service update occurring tomorrow – November 1. According to the email, the update is supposed to add new features, as well as “enhance the interface, navigation, and responsiveness of Xbox LIVE.” After the update is completed, players will notice new colors and fonts, as well as a new layout for the Dashboard.

Supposedly the update will only take five to ten minutes depending on connection speed, and will become available as soon as players turn on their 360s on November 1. However, the update FAQs did not specify what time the update will go live – will players who are online at midnight tonight see an interruption in their service?

If you did not receive the email, you can click here to see the online version, or go to to see the full details of the update.

  • This sounds like tons of fun.

    What i’ve loved about this update so far is that, yes Microsoft Canada does have two official languages one being French. I really enjoyed how the terms of use policy started in French and took literally *5* minutes to scroll before English appeared. Come on MS is scrolling really that slow in the Xbox GUI?
