UPDATE: We’ve told Microsoft that the Xbox 360 update now released appears to be doing more damage than good. Reports are flooding in that it’s causing the Red Ring of Death, or RROD as soon as it’s installed, so find out Microsoft’s response if you’ve been affected.
The Xbox 360 could be getting an update this month to fix sound problems caused by the New Xbox Experience (NXE) installation.
Microsoft is planning a February update for the Xbox 360 and NXE, according to rumours. The reason appears to be a fix for a bug in the Xbox’s NXE interface, causing major headaches for some gamers who have an Xbox 360 hooked up to the TV via a HDMI cable.
The bug results in a picture showing on-screen, but no sound whatsoever. It’s no red ring of death, but that’s still a major annoyance.
The problem is widespread enough to have created a 24 page discussion over at the official Xbox forums, but there’s still been no response to the issue by Microsoft customer support, according to those affected.
The answer? Microsoft could be looking to correct the flaw in a major update Xbox 360 update very soon. Either that, or it’s not sure how to fix the problem. We’ll let you know if and when anything is confirmed.
