New Xbox Dashboard Update a Bit Delayed

Posted on December 6, 2011 AT 04:11pm

THE BUZZ: Today is the day that the new dashboard is hitting for the Xbox 360-but it isn’t coming quite as quick as Microsoft originally thought.

While the idea had been to start rolling the dashboard out earlier today, that launch got delayed for unspecified reasons. Just a bit ago, Microsoft Xbox Live team member Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson) passed along the following note:

Sorry for the dash launch delay. Good news: first set of customers will be getting the Xbox LIVE update within the next few hours.

So, if you’re waiting for the new dashboard, it might not be until later tonight, or early in the AM, that your console receives the update.

EGM’s TAKE: The delay isn’t too bad, but we know some of you are anxious to try out all of the new features and user interface tweaks. It’s almost here!
