What you need to know
- A new system update is available for the Xbox 360.
- The update brings a smattering of "minor bug fixes and improvements".
- You can grab the update now if you're still using an Xbox 360 (but you should really upgrade to an Xbox One at this point).
Do you still have an Xbox 360 lying around? If so, there's a surprise update for the console available now. As you'd expect from an update for the aging console, there's nothing significant here, however.
Xbox 360 users, we released a system update to address some minor bug fixes and improvements. More details here: https://t.co/BH1xOb41Jz— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) August 21, 2019
The release notes for the update only cite "minor bug fixes and improvements." So, if you're still using your Xbox 360, your console may operate a little better after the update, but it's unclear what issues it addresses.
In 2019, however, you'll probably want to start eyeing an upgrade to an Xbox One if you're still holding onto an Xbox 360. The newer console includes backward compatibility with a long list of supported games and we're on the precipice of a new console generation next year with Xbox Project Scarlett. You can pick up an Xbox One S for far below $300 nowadays as well.

Review: NASCAR Heat 5 is still the complete package for fans
It's not long since NASCAR Heat 4 arrived, or at least, that's how it seems, with the new title arriving much earlier in the year than its predecessor. It's got some shiny new paint jobs and some neat new features, but many would be hard pressed to tell it apart from last year's game.
