As with most Xbox 360 owners there are 2 things that I have looked forward to every year, the dashboard updates. Its one of the most enjoyable moments that I get with my 360, when I turn my console on and it says it needs to update and then, BOOM!! New features! I love that, even if I don’t always agree with what features get added I love the fact they are adding to the experience. That is why, today, I was extremely disappointed when I read that MS might be skipping this years spring update. Yes, you read that correctly, there’s a rumor now that MS have decided to skip out on us this spring (which is also almost over mind you). Next-gen.biz has an article up right now where Marc Whitten, General Manager of Xbox Live, goes on to say
that there would be no spring dashboard update for Xbox 360 owners this year, saying that resources were instead focused on “building the proper infrastructure and scale for the service.”
Wow, how BS is that? Really? The 2 other inferior consoles (by numbers alone), the PS3 and the Wii, offer new updates at a much more regular basis and are always offering their owners with new features. And MS wants all of us to wait a year between updates? Are you joking me?
Now remember, right now this is only rumor, MS has not confirmed NOR denied this, but if this rings true, congratulations Sony. You will now make my favorite console on the market.
