News: New XBOX Dashboard and Gamercard updates this week
Want to start up directly to the disc again? Me either...
Apparently, you weren't able to boot directly to the disc in your drive since the last update? I have no idea, who does that anyway? I much prefer going to the dashboard on startup. Whatever... the option is coming back. Also, the XBox.com gamer cards are being updated.
Quote from Major Nelson's blog:
Xbox LIVE Dashboard update:
On Wednesday, January 19th we will issue a mandatory dashboard update that (re) enables the ‘Boot to Disc’ option in the Xbox 360 dashboard. After you accept the update, you’ll be able to set the option to boot to the Xbox 360 dashboard OR directly to the game you have in the tray when you power up your console. This option can be found in the System Settings.
Additionally, on Thursday January 20th the Xbox.com team will ship an update that contains a small update to the Gamercards. We’ve updated the Gamercard look and feel a bit and removed gamerzone from the card. Other than that, the same amount of information is on the card. Here is an example:
