XBOX 360 Spring 2011 Update is right here, adds PayPal integration, updated disk format, better stand-by mode
Good news folks, the XBOX 360 Spring 2011 update is finally here and brings a bunch of new features – the most obvious one being the PayPal integration, so you can now spend money in style. The PayPal integration is available in several other countries beside US and is an addition to the not very intuitive points based payment system.
The Spring 2011 Update starts today and will gradually be available everywhere in the next two weeks. Funny thing, I have seen quite a number of XBOX 360 owners online praying for the first time that an update is messing up their systems. One of the previous updates affected a small number of consoles making them incapable of reading retail disks. To fix this problem, Microsoft promised a new 250GB XBOX 360 slim system as a replacement, combined with 12 month of paid XBOX Live Gold.
Is the XBOX 360 Spring 2011 firmware update available to you yet? Let us know!
