So to everyone's enormous
surprise, it looks like Microsoft's issued the first -- though certainly not the last -- patch for the Xbox
. 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
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).
