Xbox 360 update will fix color space in video playback Microsoft has announced it has begun rolling out a system update that will fix the color space issues seen in video playback.
Over the past two months, more and more gamers have complained of issues with the video playback, which showed up after the Dashboard update in December. Last month, Microsoft promised a fix and has delivered.

Says Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb:

"I wanted to let you know that the team has just released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE. Starting today when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you'll receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. If you are signed into LIVE already, you may be signed out and asked to accept the update and you'll be back online in a few moments.

This update will increase performance and is part of our continued effort to provide the best possible Xbox LIVE experience. In this update, we are providing a fix to a color issue that some were experiencing, and it will be immediately notable in the dashboard. The fix is also being applied by partners to their apps on Xbox LIVE, which we expect to roll out over the coming months."

But why was it broken in the 1st place? I never understand how after something works, and works well, someone sees the need to go f*cking around with it. I guarantee that this was not included in the list of what the latest update was supposed to "improve". It just somehow crept in there and got messed up. But hey, don't worry, the next update will fix it, while promising to update/upgrade/improve a b & c, while breaking features x, y and Z in the same process. Balls. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I don't understand why they can't just leave sh*t alone that does not need improvement.
