xbox 360So to everyone's enormous surprise, it looks like Microsoft's issued the first -- though certainly not the last -- patch for the Xbox 360 Dashboard. It's not hugemongous update in itself, but it does address fixes to the Xbox guide, increased "last time played" stats accuracy, network issues for gamers in the Netherlands (uh, yeah), and a "workaround" on that pesky retail kiosk demo disc, um, issue. Of course, any time a software / firmware update for a game console gets out in the wild, said device's chances of getting hacked are also increased, even however so slightly on a locked-down box like Microsoft's -- so modders, keep those fingers crossed! Oh, and no word yet on that 360 camera (but we have a feeling it's coming sooner or later).
