Little video of it, I like the update. What makes people think if theres updates.. there is bans? If they found a magic way to detect the drives, surley they would just release that as a tiny little update and whack you guys out into space.

Chill out. BTW dont put your hard-drive onto your mates xbox. He wont be able to go on live. Do it to your enemys. muhaha.gif

Why the "f" were they even considering silver members? It says gold members had "priority". It just makes me keep wondering what I pay their service for. I only play online like once a month if I have the time anymore.

If you only play online once a month, perhaps you shouldn't waste money on the membership. I play almost every night and I kinda feel "ripped off" still.

I just signed up for my Netflix trial and I'm diggin' it so far, but it has some problems that Netflix blamed on XBL (the "Your connection has slowed" screen). I'm hoping that this problem will at least be a bit less persistent with this update, and I'm looking forward to selecting my IQs from my Xbox instead of my computer.

Unfortunately, 1 person said it's faster and the rest said it's slower tongue.gif

Well the only thing fast is the avatard marketplace, everything else seems the same. Seems like a lot of attention went into the avatard marketplace

How witty of you.

The reason so much attention was placed on the avatars is rather simple. Microsoft sees the possibility for a positive return on investment. People have said that they would be willing to pay modest amounts in order to purchase clothing etc. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as it is realistically no different than buying themes or gamerpics... It's all about personalization and customization.

Microsoft has shareholders to answer to. If they can turn a profit on simple avatar clothing they are certainly going to take it.

No shit, Sherlocks. The update is for your console, identified by its console ID, not your account, identified by your passport.

That'll happen if you entered the wrong console ID number when you did the survey. Like MrFish pointed out in the post above, the update is linked to your console ID. When you connect to Live the Live servers will check to see if your console is on the list for the preview update.

If you have entered the wrong console ID then I believe there's an option to correct it on the connect website.
