Wanna know what’s inside the update you’re gonna download today? Microsoft’s dropped the official list of everything that’s new. Honestly, it’s the little things I’m more excited about.
Here’s what I like:
• Account recovery is faster—great if you play over at your friends’ places a lot, ’cause it takes damn near forever.
• Party invites are less clunky
• You actually get notifications when your subscription’s about to expire
• Achievement browser’s better, and you can launch games from it (yes!)
• Active Downloads and other screens like that are actually easy to get to
• Under My Xbox, there’s a handy troubleshooting section called Solutions that brings together all of the info that was scattered throughout the UI (scary you need this though, I mean, we’re talking about a game console, right?)
• And while it’s not as good as having more than 100 friends, you can sort your friends list in different ways
All of that just seems to add up a nicer experience that frustrates you less often. Plus, you know, there’s all that other stuff we already told you about. I wish I could download it today too, but my Xbox went all RRoD on me two days ago. Enjoy it for me, kay? [Xbox]
