Xbox 360 System Software


Xbox 360 System Software

Xbox 360 System Software (sometimes referred to incorrectly as firmware), is updateable software and operating system for the Xbox 360. It resides on a 16 MB file system and has access to a maximum of 32 MB of the system's memory. [http://blogs.msdn.com/xboxteam/archive/2007/11/30/december-2007-system-update.aspx Xbox Team : December 2007 System Update ] ] While the System Software updates may sometimes provide updates to the system's firmware, it is unlikely that this occurs with many, or any updates. The updates can be downloaded from the Xbox Live service directly to the Xbox 360 and subsequently installed. Microsoft has also provided the ability to download system software updates from their respective official Xbox website to their PCs and then storage media, from which the update can be installed to the system. Updates can also be installed from game discs that require the updates to be able to play the game. All updates are mandatory if the user signs into Xbox Live. The latest version of the software is version 2.0.6717.0 released on 2008-08-06, however, the console is not yet (up to the mid August 2008 at least) being shipped with this version pre-installed, meaning an update is required.

Announced at E3 2008, a new version of the Xbox 360 software will be released. It is a graphical and multiplayer enhancement, and is set to be released on 2008-11-19. Netflix support is also going to be available in the update (US users only).
