85 Free Enhancements For The Xbox 360
Xbox 360 owners can download a free update that enhances their video game, online, and movie experience for Microsoft’s console. The enhancements are quite steep, some of which includes an upgrade to the overall operating system that heightens the 360's movie playback features, and adds 1080p support for higher resolution in gaming.
The entire list of enhancements is darn big. And the good part about it, for Xbox 360 owners, is that you don’t need a hard-drive or disc storage unit to receive the upgrade. Crazy huh? Anyway, the entire upgrade – for just about every aspect of the Xbox 360's system – can be downloaded for free, just so long as owners have an Xbox Live account. I guess that’s not much of a catch, considering that M$ could have pulled a scam where 360 owners would have to purchase a hard-drive or spend M$ points to download the upgrade. But I’m sure no one really cares about what I’m writing here, and everyone would probably just want to see the list of features. So without further ado, here’s some of the features that will be available in the download.
Expanded HD Display and Video Playback Options
• With 1080p resolution, gamers now have the ability to enjoy both game and video content in the best HD resolution currently available.
• Expanded video playback options increase the ways gamers can enjoy video content on Xbox 360. It is now possible to stream WMV video from a Windows PC running Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media Connect.
• Gamers can now play video files from data CDs and DVDs, as well as from storage devices like USB 2.0 flash drives and Xbox 360 Memory Units.
• Xbox 360 will support 50hz HDTV display modes, providing viewers greater choice in how they watch DVD and HD DVD content.
