Xbox 360 System Update Now Live

Major Nelson, the Xbox 360 go-to-guy, has announced via his blog that a new system update for the console is available now through Xbox Live. When you turn your system on and sign in to the network you’ll be prompted to download and install the update. Before you ask, yes, the update is mandatory, but this time it’s a good thing.

The new update fixes a couple of issues, and focuses mainly on multimedia. First up, an issue with playlists not syncing correctly when sent from Xbox Live SmartGlass has been rectified, and users should no longer experience any mix-ups with the transfer. Next, the update corrects problems with subtitles not displaying correctly when using Xbox Video. Finally Xbox Music gets an update, though no specifics were mentioned.

Now that the system update is live, once it’s installed users should no longer have problems using their favorite multimedia services on their console. Recently the Xbox 360 has turned into more of a general entertainment system and less of a dedicated game console. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and I’m glad to see the system being put to so much use. I love being able to stream videos on my console and then pop in a game like Dishonored and enjoy some gaming for a bit. I think once Microsoft creates a system with Blu-Ray capability it will be the only system the family needs in the home.
