Xbox 360 NXE audio patch posted
Gamers given hearing back
A fix for the HDMI audio issue experienced by downloaders of the New Xbox Experience (NXE) has been released ahead of the predicted launch date.
The Dashboard update’s a mandatory patch, according to Microsoft, and is designed to fix the loss of audio that some gamers have complained about since installing the NXE interface.
It was reported yesterday that Microsoft was working on a patch, but rumoured that the firm wouldn’t release it until next month. So today’s announcement, on Microsoft’s Major Nelson blog, is welcome news for audio deprived gamers.
Microsoft added that the update’s now being rolled out to all Xbox Live members and that you should be prompted to install it when you sign in. ®
Hmm, ever wondered...
Why in the case of the XBox, the news gets reported, and a fix is available the next day (despite the bug being aroind for 3 months already).... It sounds like the Pro-Microsoft lot keep the news under wraps until a fix is available.
If this were PS3, then the mainstream media would be foaming at the mouth with news of a HDMI audio bug....
