Unwilling to let Sony steal all the limelight with its newly unveiled PlayStation 3 firmware update, Microsoft too has launched new software for its console.

Microsoft staffer Major Nelson said on the official Xbox 360 blog that the system update for the console has just been released, so next time you sign into Xbox Live you’ll be prompted to install the update - which is mandatory.

But don’t get too excited. Nelson explained that the update only seeks to address interruption issues that some Live users “may have experienced” when playing “a limited number of games” on the console. ®
