(No) Spring Update
May 23, 2008 Leave a comment
- there will be no spring dashboard update,
- underperforming Xblox Live Arcade (XBLA) titles will be removed,
- changes to the DRM policy, and
- a tool will be released to fix the issue that forced gamers playing XBLA games to be connected to Xbox LIVE if their console was replaced.
Instead of pushing for a spring dashboard update – you might compare it with a Windows Service Pack (SP) – focus lies on “building the proper infrastructure and scale for the service"; whatever that means.
Underperforming XBLA titles will be eligible for removal from the titles list with a 3 months notice if
- they have been out for more than 6 months,
- have a Metacritic score of less than 65%, and
- have a conversion rate of less than 6%.
