Xbox Rolls Out Firmware Update W/ Major Glitch

There’s a new firmware update for the Xbox 360 that allows individuals to read higher capacity discs. The only problem is that the new firmware update will not work on every console since some older Xbox 360s aren’t able to work around the format. Microsoft has stated that a very small number of units are affected but has stated that they plan on replacing any of the affected consoles.

The company is offering to replace affected consoles with a brand new Xbox 360 Slim with 250GB hard drive at no cost to the consumer. Of course, users will have to send back their old console before getting a new one and the offer will expire by the end of September.
