Xbox 360 Spring Update Coming

Microsoft will launch its annual spring update for the Xbox 360 Dashboard an the next Dashboard update will begin rolling out on May 19.Xbox 360 update includes PayPal integration and make support for new disc format, PayPal integration looks especially attractive after the PlayStation Network fiasco that’s exposed PS3 owners’ personal info and payment information…………….


The first details on the upcoming spring update have surfaced and it will not add the sort of major features we’ve seen in past updates. It will be out before the end of the month and adds what’s sure to be a useful new payment method for some users.An alleged Microsoft employee has forwarded two images to Joystiq detailing the update’s features, only one of which will be noticeable to users. Support for the new disc format (referred to as XGD3) that’s been beta tested over the last month will be one of the two major features. The image confirms what the format reportedly adds: additional storage space and new safeguards against piracy. The new format will begin being used in future game titles releasing later in 2011.The update will also allow users to use PayPal as a payment method on the Xbox Live Marketplace while also expanding PayPal to new international markets.These changes will be pushed out in six waves between May 19 and May 30. The reason for this method is to ensure a high quality deployment.
