So you have avoided downloading the New Xbox Experience thus far. Well stop hiding because Microsoft has found a way to get everyone on board with NXE. All future games will have the dashboard update included on new game discs and it will be starting up with HAWX. This really isn’t a case of Microsoft shoving NXE down your throat, but some games require the updates to play certain games and HAWX is one of them. This will also prove to be helpful for people not connected to Xbox Live.
“It has always been standard protocol for Microsoft to include the latest version of the Xbox 360 dashboard on game discs,” said a company spokesperson. “This is not unique to the New Xbox Experience update. To enhance platform security, Xbox 360 owners who are not connected to Xbox LIVE will have their consoles updated to the current system software from game discs they purchase at retail.”
