Instructions for updating xbox 360
Not all original Xbox games are supported; the last reported update to the compatibility list was in 2007 and support has since been discontinued for adding new titles.
There are more than 400 titles on the list which covers most of the big name titles, and as a requirement for backwards compatibility the users have to have a hard drive for their Xbox 360, specifically an official Microsoft-brand Xbox 360 hard drive.
There are other improvements to the experience on the Xbox 360 over the original Xbox too, including the ability to upscale the image so it will look better.
Progressive scan is another feature of the DVD output in the Xbox 360 that produces smoother output when playing movies on televisions that support high definition, although using a dedicated DVD player would offer even more features and sound quality.
Starting with the NXE Dashboard in November 2008, Larry Hryb (known on Xbox Live as "Major Nelson") and other team members hosted a new segment using Microsoft Connect to allow members of the Xbox Live community to get a chance to have a preview of the next dashboard.
Small bug fixes & minor improvements were not included in the Preview Program; it was limited to major releases (NXE, Kinect, Metro) released in November of some years.
Furthermore, selecting an avatar is now required by the Xbox Live service.
Two years later, Microsoft launched a new dashboard set for the release of the Microsoft Kinect, adding a fresh new user interface with a touch of silver, but in late 2011 a system update again came with a complete new user interface with a Metro-style design inspired by Windows Phone.
Microsoft is in control of what videos are available through the Xbox Live Marketplace.Similar to the Play Station 3 from Sony, Xbox 360 has media center capabilities built in, so it is relatively easy to set up.
