I've just bought what appears to be a brand new XENON Xbox360. It's booting directly to the initial setup / language selection screen. Attaching a HDD with the new dashboard results in a "you need to install an update to use" screen, and until I go through the setup process it's not booting games / DVDs etc.
How is this even possible in 2010? I guess the real question is... Is this USEFUL in any way? It's got a manufacture date of 2006-07-02
