    Microsoft has also issued a list of additional upgrades and changes that was added in an official statement that was made earlier this month. Things included in the list include many things such as an improved voice chat quality and additional improvements to the Xbox Live Marketplace interface.

    Here comes the bad news, as such with these things. Choosing to decline the OS download will unfortunately make redundant of Xbox Live as it will not allow you to connect to it. Microsoft stated that the update should take somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes to download and install on your Xbox 360. This will work on ALL Xbox 360's, including slims, although I would suspect you would need a form of memory storage in order to download and install the said update. Memory Card, USB stick, HDD or otherwise.

    This will actually be the third overhaul that the Xbox 360's interface has had since the console launched back in 2005.

    Updates include...
    (Official List By Microsoft)

    It used to be all rounded and cool, and now they've made it look all flat and square. Basically, boring.
