I'm scared shitless to be honest. A console update in the middle of the night?

Here's the word from Microsoft:

Console Update
You'll notice as you log into Xbox LIVE that there is an console update. The flash contains a minor code change to prepare for future growth of the service. There will be no immediate or noticeable changes to the interface or services for Xbox LIVE or the Xbox 360.

I'm waiting until I hear something.

yeh me 2.. best to wait a few days and let the impatient people find out first.. lol.

That statement from ms sounds strange aswell! future growth = bans? smile.gif

Major Nelsons blog says...

Xbox 360 System update now available (no new features)
A few minutes ago, the team released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE. Sometime over the next few hours when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you’ll recieve a prompt to accept this mandatory update. This update contains code to ‘prepare for future growth of the service.’ There are no other changes or enhancements in this update…in other words no new features. The next obvious question you’ll have is about the Spring update. At this point we have nothing to announce, and the moment there is information to share I will do so.

I think im gonna hold off on this one until C4E or someone in the community can shed some light on the code contained in the update.

Sounds way to suspicious to me with just over a week to go for the GTA IV release & it has been a few months now since we've heard from the M$ ban hammer.

Yup I totally agree with your points on GTA and the hammer, I dont like the look of this update at all!

If you dont accept the update your as good as banned anyway.
Im pretty sure M$ have released featureless updates in the past with no detremental effect on modded consoles.
IIRC the spring update was a full dashboard update that started the first banwave.
