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.

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.
