[Update] Spring Dashboard Update!
So you have all been waiting for the Spring/Summer update now for a while, yes! well the next part of this thread aint going to go down very well.
There will be "NO" Spring/Summer update this year for the xbox360, This of course means that the rumored Spring/Summer update feature that has been leaking all over the internet is not true, so god knows where that came from and it wern't us. anyhow instead of putting resources into a Spring update, its been decided to focus our energy into "building the proper infrastructure and scale for the service" (ahem, more reliability) < never came from me. But all is not lost in the land of updates,
We will be rolling out a change to the DRM policy in June that'll allow content owners to re-license XBLA and XBLM content to a single console. This move will make said content available when disconnected from Xbox Live.
Finally, we learn that the Xbox Live Arcade will get a metaphorical Spring cleaning as Microsoft plans to remove under-performing Arcade titles. Games that have been on the market for over six months, have a Metacritic average lower than 65% and a conversion rate below 6% will be targeted for de-listing. A move that Microsoft hopes will streamline the service and open it up to bigger and better things.
Well thats just about how the boss summed this up this morning in an email.
he will be having various interviews today so expect this to be all over the net by 12pm :)
