Microsoft's Major Nelson has notified his followers that the company has released an Xbox 360 update that doesn't do anything now, but prepares for the upcoming Twitter, Last.fm, and Facebook functionality of the console. His royal majorness wrote:
"Sometime over the next few hours when you sign in to Xbox Live you’ll receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. If you are signed into Live already, you may be signed out and asked to accept the update and you’ll be back online in a few moments.
There are no new features or changes in this update. This update is preparation for additional system enhancements (Facebook/Twitter/Last.FM) that will arrive later this year."
It will be interesting to see how many users take advantage of these features. I'm all for expanding the functionality of consoles, but there are several readers of TheFeed that don't care for these features -- particularly the social networking.
Since Twitter, Last.fm, and Facebook on Xbox 360 are right around the corner, I wanted to check which features you're looking forward to. Do you see yourself using any or all of them? Anyone you're looking forward to more than others? Leave a comment and let me know (please)!
