Minor 360 dashboard update

A better canary, perhaps. (Oh.)

Those of you logging onto Xbox Live today - perhaps in search of new Live Arcade title Ms. Pac-Man, or on the hunt for the new Gears of War maps - might be surprised by a downloadable update for the Xbox 360 dashboard.

Not to worry though, because it's nothing major. As explained by, er, Major Nelson, otherwise (although not very often) known as Xbox Live's director of programming Larry Hryb. "There is nothing major in this one, it just addresses a few performance and stability issues," he said on his blog.

The real meat, so to speak, is probably a few months away - as Microsoft has ongoing plans to upgrade the dashboard twice a year, having previously introduced things like 1080p support and the ability to download content from Xbox Live Marketplace while you pootle off and try and get that 50th achievement in Viva Piñata. (Seriously, what definition of "hours" is it using?)
