We previously reported that Microsoft would be replacing old consoles if the recent update for the Xbox 360 caused the drive to stop functioning. Well today, Xbox Live’s director of programming, Larry Hryb wrote on his blog:
“Clarification time! The console replacement plan that is the subject of some of today’s headlines is related to a previous update, NOT the system update that has been in public beta and will be deployed shortly… The new disc format that is part of the beta has been rigorously tested across all Xbox 360 models and there are no known compatibility issues.”
I guess that’s pretty self explanatory – the upcoming update won’t be a problem for your Xbox 360 console. For those of you hoping to break your console with the latest update (which should start rolling out today) – you’re better off damaging the console yourself! (And no, we don’t encourage such behavior.)
