This brouhaha isn't officially on
just yet, but MaxConsole
has what it says is a letter from Datel's UK distributors, which details the company's response to Microsoft's locking-out
of unauthorized memory units in the upcoming (and currently previewed
) Xbox 360 dashboard update. While it's a bit short on specifics, Datel reportedly says that it is "aware of the changes that are required to remedy this problem and will shortly release a solution in readiness for this potential update." In the meantime, it's apparently telling retailers that they can send back the affected memory units if they like, and promises it will replace them with updated units in time for the dashboard update.
