XBOX 360 Fall 2007 Update Impressions

The XBOX 360 Fall 2007 Dashboard update was unleashed upon the world today and it is probably the best update ever for Microsoft’s box. I was very impressed with the changes made. Performing the update also reminded me how easy and relatively painless it is to update the console compared to a System Update on the PLAYSTATION 3. I guess if there is anyone who should be good at patching, it would be Microsoft.

Here were some of the key changes which I appreciated:

– Improved Dashboard performance
– Added DivX/Xvid support.
– Improved organization layout of most blades
– Friends of Friends

Full change log can be found here.
