|Is M$ being sly with the latest update?Published by endless on Thursday, May 10, 2007
Well probably like the rest of you, I have been sitting here all day, wondering why Microsoft didn't strike. For devs to come out with a new firmware update to combat what Microsoft reportedly had up its sleeves, and for Microsoft to not strike was troubling to say the least. Well GaryOPA had this to say about his thoughts on why Microsoft hasn't done anything.
Another personal thought regarding the "Spring Update":
Was thinking about the update, for it to work 100% they might need to shut-down the Live service for a few hours on their end later and update the server side also, as this type of checking should be done only when playing a game on XBOX Live and should be a request from the XBOX Live service to RE-TEST or CHECK the disc and can be done anytime during disc spinning (yes / no?).
Maybe also MS is waiting for the Bungie Halo3 beta start date to start using this new feature, as getting everyone with a copy of CRACKDOWN on using HALO 3 beta would be the key to the puzzle and good press!
Now that makes sense, and is practical. Is Microsoft just sitting back waiting for the perfect time to strike? Let the panic, and paranoia die down a bit? Who knows, but we all know Mr Bill despises piracy, and in his eyes backing up games is probably nothing more than stealing.
Now a little more from GaryOPA,
Commodore4Eva made an Xtreme FW with Disc-Jitter for Hitachi-LG v47 (test stage). Testing is almost completed. Updates on all the versions is in process.
I'm talking with Maximus in getting the Maximus 360 Firmware Toolbox(info) uptodate to handle all drive versions with this "c4e" fix, instead of "c4e" releasing the v47, then me releasing a v40 thru v59 package, and Maximus releasing a v78/v79 package.
I think it would be better to have one solid program, to handle all the future Hitachi releases, as there is going to be a number of them shortly, but the "Jitter" one way or the other will be out within 24 hours or less.
It would have been done earlier but I had a major hard drive crash, and have been working with older backups, and complete lost of all my emails.
My hats off to GaryOPA for the forward thinking on making Maximus 360 Firmware Toolbox handle all the Hitachi's. Let’s hope he gets his wishes, and the toolbox will be able to flash all Hitachi's.
I have to say, my 360 will not be playing any backed up copies anytime soon. I’ll ride this wave out and see when it hits shore.
