Microsoft prepares major update for Xbox 360 console

The BBC iPlayer will be added to the Xbox in 2012 as Microsoft tries to centre its console on entertainment rather than just games.

The big update to support this change will start hitting Xbox 360 consoles around the world on 6 December.

Microsoft has signed up 40 media firms to provide both live and on-demand movie and TV services for the console.

The update also lets people control their TVs by talking into the Kinect motion-spotting gadgets.

Just thought you might want to know, especially those who play bap Thursday, may be an issue if there's a big download

I think you may have defeated my Jamie Pollock. Good game, mate.

Last year when my subscription was close to renewel, microsoft offered %40 off, £24 total, not sure how to get it though, it was a dashboard advert.

Woke up this morning to a load of e-mails telling me I'd bought Microsoft points.

Switch Xbox on and greeted with the message "This gamertag was last signed in on another console"

Account locked and suspended for 'up to' 25 days for investigation into the hacking fucktards

WANKERS

This hacking is just affecting more and more people. Did you have the same password on your EA and XBL accounts Winch? That seems to be a big factor in this.

No idea if I'm honest but probably. I don't know what my XBL one is as set it up yonks ago (Yep, I said yonks - I want that word brought back)

I tried to access that EA Creation centre on a PC last night. I blame Pants for suggesting I use it to check out player stats for the FTL league) and this morning I woke up to the issue so it's likely


Anyway - this converstation with you is making me uncomfortable as I don't like talking with dead people

Do you play ultimate team wincho? Apparently a lot of people were getting hacked from playing this. I just gave it a try for a week and some git did it to me. He sold all my team and bought loads of packs. 24 days later I got my account back with a free month of Xbox live and a downloadable game Allan wake. Which I never downloaded so if it's still available does anyone want it here?

Thy just told me to create a new gamertag and you get a free month trial with that. Keeps you going while you wait.

Before I fade to black, can I just suggest 'Alright Winko' as your temporary 1 month gamertag. I don't expect a friends request of course. *sniff*

I've created a new gamertag thanks Tris but the only two games I play are Fifa and MW3 and both online play codes are redeemed against my locked account

Alan Wake is great btw. You should download it

Sorry to hear it dude.

I know this won't help you now, but with regards to passwords I don't think enough people understand the importance of individual passwords for every site. I not long ago went and changed them all for everything I use.

It's obviously an arse trying to remember them so instead, use a combo of set letters from the URL mixed in with a code.
Eg for Rllmuk you might use Wrilnlcmh - that's Winch interspersed with rllm. And similarly, the BBC website would be Wbibnccch. The extra c is from 'com'.

You can also buy a new EA pass from the Marketplace -about a fiver I think. Annoying, but depends how desperate you are to play over the next month.

When I contacted ea about my code they said it was registered to the Xbox and not the gamertag and although I had a couple of issues initially it worked fine after that.

Allan wake is 6gb download and I only have 1 gb left :(

I've been playing on the new tag I created so you may well be correct (and there was some initial faffing before it would work - not sure what I did but 'transfer licence' rings a bell whether that had anything to do with it) I don't know how this wizardry works and keep expecting it to boot me off the servers when it realises!

I contacted EA to ask them to sort me out for a month and they e-mailed back immediately asking for details of my new gamertag and evidence that I bought a brand new copy of Fifa. Seemed like they would sort it once I got this stuff back to them but if it is registered to my xbox then I should be fine anyway

I fully expect to have problems going back to my original gamertag but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it! For now I am known as 'Alright Winko'

Found this in my inbox...

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.

I am sorry for the delay in responding to you.

I'm sorry to hear you are still experiencing difficulties, and apologize for any inconvenience.There is no need for a new Online Pass code.Just re-download Online Pass from Xbox marketplace.
Go to Account Management.
Choose Transaction Management.
Go to the Download List and find the Online Pass you are trying to validate.
Re-download and reinstall the content.

If you have any other questions, then by all means feel free to let us know.

Regards,

Mohit

Should be no problem switching back to your old gamertag it was fine for me. Just expect nothing back from Xbox for 25 days, as they refused to discuss anything with me until the investigation was over.
