Don't Put Any Kinect Discs in Your Xbox Just Yet
Posted by James Newton
If you want to survive
If you've managed to score an early copy of any Kinect launch game, don't put it in your 360 console just yet: it will update your 360 to the new Kinect-enabled dashboard, but you won't be able to connect to Live without downloading another update. The problem with that is the newest update doesn't exist on the servers yet – for obvious reasons – so you'll be stuck in a never-ending loop of misery.
If you really must, disconnect your console from Live before you pop that copy of Kinect Sports in your tray. Or of course you could just leave the game in its shrinkwrap and wait for Kinect to come out and bring with it the necessary update and controller to actually play the game. Should be an easy choice.
