Default Re: New Xbox update?

I believe the main update is hard copied to the Xbox itself, i.e, not on the hard drive.

The other updates involve the movie service/avatars etc, and they might need a hard drive.

Luckily for you, I believe Microsoft are going to give away 20GB hard drives... I'll have to find the link.

I've been playing on my 1680X1050 monitor at 1280x1024 wide and it's not had any problems, looks great in fact.

Thanks, and yeah, it looks okay, but I still can't get past the fact it is slightly stretched out, and isn't looking as good as it could do. Plus, the fact that circles are never circles, but ovals!
Things should look a lot sharper after the update I hope.
