Talk:Xbox 360 system software

I removed Skype from the list. It has been long speculated that the release date will be sometime between 2011-2012 (and we all know it didn't happen last year) -- this release has been halted due to internal politics between Microsoft and Skype. When Microsoft announces an OFFICIAL release date then it should be added back, but it's highly irresponsible for an "encyclopedia" to promote a false release date for what is presently a vapourware product. ~QuietAndross — Preceding unsigned comment added by QuietAndross (talk • contribs) 18:56, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
Xbox 360 applications
Concerning the information on the applications, rhere's already an article for this content, Xbox 360 applications. This article is about the system software, not the applications that run on it. Therefore the content is outside of the scope of this article, and unnecessarily duplicates existing information. I don't see any reason why the content should be here when it is already present at the other article, which this article already links to. - SudoGhost 09:13, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
June system update?
IPs continue to add specifics about a supposedly-already-occurred update to the dashboard software. As of yet, no source has been provided, and this update has yet to go live in North America (with the former item being the bigger issue). I've asked for page protection to get people here talking. So, will someone kindly produce a reliable source indicating that this is indeed the current version number and what its features include? Or is this someone's idea of a joke? --McDoobAU93 02:31, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
June system update 2.0.15572.0 indeed!
- All both sources say is that some users are receiving an update, and that the rest get it the following week. That doesn't sound like a "public" launch to me. Public beta, perhaps, but not public launch. Besides, neither source includes (a) the updated revision number and (b) what is included in the update. You'll still need to provide that. --McDoobAU93 14:25, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
How about adding a certain colour to the current Xbox 360 software version, and a different colour for the beta version similar to what they did over at the iOS version history page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by TomoK12 (talk • contribs) 15:46, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
We're a file repository now?
After I noticed that edit summaries were all but hidden because the subhead names were simply too long, I took a closer look at the article. A good-faith effort was made to include links to the various software versions, many of which remain available on Microsoft's website, and the links directed users to Microsoft itself. I've gone through and removed the subhead links per WP:MOSHEAD, relocating any citations to the "Release date" column and external links to the "Availability" column. This should make it easier to follow edit summaries going forward.
That said, is it our duty to provide links to this software? I can't find anything in policy that definitively says we should or should not, but I am curious as to the thinking. As I said in my edit summary, I wasn't going to remove any content pending discussion on the matter. All I did was reorganize what was there. --McDoobAU93 19:55, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
"Anti-Piracy 3.0, XGD 4.5 Challenge responses has been updated" This is highly believed to be false, and I believe doesn't really have sufficient evidence or reference. I suggest removing it until proven true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eitherrideordie (talk • contribs) 20:35, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
There is currently no reliable sources for what changes the 2.0.16517.0 beta contains. I have removed the unsourced changes and added references for the ones I could find. If you must include "XOSC Challenge Responses" can you actually explain to the passing user (and me) what they actually are.
Users who post other changes having actually participated in the beta are probably breaking the Non Disclosure Agreement they signed up to when joining the beta program. I will continue to remove any other unsourced changes until the update becomes official.=> Spudgfsh (Text Me!) 19:41, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
- Just saw this after updating the article. I came across a reliable source that states two other changes and added them. --GoneIn60 (talk) 12:39, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
