Updating an xbox 360
Originally there were five tabs or sections known as the "blades" for the Xbox 360 menu, namely the Marketplace, Xbox live, Games, Media and System.In scrolling from left to right, each section would have a different-colored background signifying its own unique area but users also had the option to change all sections to one background color as well.
However, there are also notable differences between the ways of their emulations—unlike Xbox 360's emulation of the original Xbox, by Xbox One's emulation of the Xbox 360 games do not have to be specifically patched but instead need to be repackaged in the Xbox One format.The many enhancements that were included with this update pushed the system to a more modernized interface and improved features that pushed the envelope for social gaming and media.While the Xbox 360 console is primarily designed to play games just like other video game consoles, it can be used as a media player too.There are other improvements to the experience on the Xbox 360 over the original Xbox too, including the ability to upscale the image so it will look better.Progressive scan is another feature of the DVD output in the Xbox 360 that produces smoother output when playing movies on televisions that support high definition, although using a dedicated DVD player would offer even more features and sound quality.The Xbox 360 game system allows users to download applications that add to the functionality of the dashboard.
Most apps required the user to be signed into a valid Xbox Live Gold account in order to use the features advertised for the given app.
More specifically, it only supports playback of DVR-MS, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and WMV videos.
Every Xbox 360 can play DVD movies out of the box using the built-in DVD drive, with no additional parts necessary, although the user may control everything with an optional remote.
In 2008 however, when the gaming scene changed dramatically because of the competitions with the Play Station 3 and the Wii, a new Xbox Dashboard titled the New Xbox Experience (NXE) was launched, which features major changes in both the user interface and other functionalities.
The new user interface had a navigation system similar to that of Windows Media Center.
The Xbox 360 system software or the Xbox 360 Dashboard is the updateable software and operating system for the Xbox 360.
