We have been switching our Xbox 360 consoles on every 30 minutes today to ensure that we get the new dashboard update as soon as possible, however we have now heard that there has been a slight delay, that said it looks like it should still launch today.
Xbox Live’s director of programming, Larry Hryb (aka @majornelson) recently tweeted a few messages to his 343k followers saying the following:
FYI: The timing for Xbox 360 dashboard update has been slightly delayed. I’ll have a status update later today
As you can see he is very vague about the situation, therefore we don’t know whether there was just a very minor issue with the update or something more serious. Since posting this tweet he has gone on to say that he won’t have additional details until later today, that said the moment he has new information he will share it on Twitter.
We aren’t going to delve into what the cause of this delay is, but we are seriously hoping that Microsoft’s new dashboard roll out has not ran into major problems, when we hear more on the situation we will keen you posted, so keep checking Product-Reviews for all of the latest news.
Now that you have a wait on your hands you should perhaps find some other things to do to keep you entertained, here’s some suggestions: Firstly if you are a Battlefield 3 fan you should watch the brand new Battlefield 3 Wake Island trailer, still got time on your hands? PC gamers could always install the Skyrim HD retexture mod, PES 2012 gamers should find out all about the upcoming patch and finally why not find out about the faster boot time which the new Xbox 360 dashboard will bring to your console.
Still got time on your hands? Why not check out Engadget’s detailed review of the new Xbox 360 dash.
Leave us a comment below when the update finally hits your console and whether you run into any problem, at 3.30pm UK time it still hadn’t hit my 360.
