Microsoft has released a new system update for their older Xbox 360 console which brings with it the features that have been previously available by the Preview the last few months. Together with a few new features that have been rolled out that as yet have not been unveiled by Microsoft. 2GB Cloud Storage – Starting today you will now be able to use up to 2GB of Cloud Storage on your Xbox 360.  Use your Cloud Storage to save the game saves you want to bring with you to Xbox One for Xbox One Compatible games. Accept Terms of Use – You can now connect your Xbox 360 to a network that requires a Terms of Use acceptance (common in hotels, hospitals, and other public venues).
Redeem Codes from messages – When you receive an Xbox Live Marketplace code in a message you will now be able to redeem that code by simply pressing “Redeem Code”. Activity Feed – Like, comment, share your friend’s activities, post new messages, watch game clips, view screenshots, and see what your friends are playing from your Xbox 360. See What Your Friends Are Doing – You can now see what your friends are playing on Xbox One and Windows 10 from your Xbox 360. See your money  – Your Microsoft account balance will now be shown when you are looking at the details of a game or when browsing the marketplace. XBOX LIVE is currently suffering problems with online services including online multiplayer and party chat functions on the Xbox One, Microsoft has confirmed. FIFA 17's UK release date is fast approaching, with more FUT news likely to be revealed at Gamescom next week. MICROSOFT has once again released another excellent backwards compatible game which is now ready to play on Xbox One consoles. While the Xbox One is the main focus for the teams at Microsoft, they aren’t stopping updates for the Xbox 360 just yet.
This is a huge improvement, especially when cloud storage was being used to store worlds on Minecraft which can reach huge sizes depending on how much you play and explore. Other improvements added to the Xbox 360 include being able to use internet connections which require you to login to the network and accept terms of use, you are now able to redeem Xbox LIVE 25 character codes directly from the messages menu, provided someone has sent you a code in a message. Also introduced in the Xbox 360 Activity Feed, a popular feature that was originally featured on the Xbox One. Finally, you can finally see what your friends on Xbox One and Windows 10 are doing directly from your friends list. Be sure to check out Major Nelson’s blog post for the full list of changes on the latest update.
It’s also something more and more gamers will be doing as Xbox 360 classics including several remakes of Rare games and the entire slate of Gears of War games become available to play on Xbox One, with many more to follow when the feature launches for all Xbox One users in November.
Your Achievements in any backwards-compatible game are yours forever and therefore carry over without you doing anything. Microsoft requires that you have an Xbox Live profile to use Xbox One backwards compatibility. While we have not run into any instances where you can’t move your saves into the cloud, we have seen instances in the past when some publishers blocked the copying of saves on, say, a small number of PlayStation 3 games from one PS3 to another. Xbox One Backwards Compatibility is currently active for users of the console’s preview program. Most 360 gamers probably saved their games on the console’s hard drive or even on USB storage. That won't bother me - I got fallout 3 and new Vegas for cheap on PC and traded in the 360 versions. I couldn't get the cloud saves to work on either Super Meat Boy or Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. Shadow Complex even remembered the master challenges that I'd completed, even though I didn't transfer my save game.
I'm probably going to start most of my games I want to replay over from the beginning, like Mass Effect, Gears of War, etc. So if you’ve got Rare Replay then I’d recommend copying your saves for those games over even if you plan on starting fresh or maybe not even playing a game at all. I’m not going to play Viva Pinata much, for example, but as soon as I selected Viva Pinata from the main menu I got some bonus content unlocked from when I played the game years ago. I'm interested to hear about games that store info in your profile itself, like what difficulty levels you've unlocked. Also, at the moment my kids play games on the 360 at the same time I play on the xbone on the same profile (as my Lego saves have all chars unlocked). They must have introduced Cloud storage sometime later as I always had a gold subscription and never remembered an option to save to cloud (I never really followed news or blogs about it). And yet, you do not have to be a genius to figure out how the enormous energy bills could be reduced.

The air side economizers bring outside air into the building and distribute it via a series of dampers and fans. This is easy to illustrate with the most important - although far from perfect - benchmark for data centers, PUE or Power Usage Effectiveness. Let's see what the hurdles are and how buying the right servers could lead to much more efficient data centers and ultimately an Internet that requires much less energy. I experimented with this (mathematically) and found that heat soak is a serious, variable, concern.
Geothermal heat pumps are only moderately more efficient than standard air conditioning and require an enormous amount of area.
Wells don't use vacuum based pumps most aquifers are much to deep for that instead you stick the pump in the bottom of the well and push the water to the service. Aside from the default styles, there were premium themes available for purchase on the XBOX Live Marketplace. Ability to disable notifications, new messages, chat requests, mute the notification sound, etc. The option to install games to hard drive in order to decrease load times and to make the hardware quieter.
Two years later, Microsoft announced a new dashboard set for the release of the Microsoft Kinect, which was set to launch in November of 2010.
Improved Netflix integration by enabling to search the entire Netflix catalog from within the console. At E3 2011, Microsoft announced their latest update for a system that was now in it’s sixth year. Complete design change in the Metro Design Language, with an interface similar to the Windows Phone and Windows 8 operating system. If you were hoping to slip your shoes off, grab a seat, and prepare for Titanfall until the wee hours of the morning, you might want to make a change of plans.
After first connecting you will be prompted to test your Xbox Live connection and will then be directed to use Internet Explorer to login to the network.
A while back they restarted the preview program for the Xbox 360 and have been testing small but much needed improvements to the platform. This is likely so that they can check which digitally-purchased downloadable 360 games you have the rights to but also because Xbox One backwards compatibility actually requires the newer console to download a copy of whichever 360 game it is going to run. In those cases it was a publisher decision, and it would be surprising to see that be an issue with many, if any, 360 games, especially given how the save-transfer process below really just involves putting 360 saves into official Xbox 360 cloud storage, a feature that should work for any game. That’s what I generally did and had to poke around a little to get them onto my Xbox One. It works both ways, meaning that your 360 will sync any save progress that you make while playing a 360 game on an Xbox One. Perfect Dark unlocked almost everything because I spend TONS of time replaying that game on the 360. And it is no secret that they demand a lot of energy: with energy capacities ranging from 10MW to 100MW, they require up to 80,000 times more than what a typical US home needs. The main energy gobblers are the CRACs, Computer Room Air Conditioners or the alternative, the CRAHs, the Computer Room Air Handlers. PUE is simply the ratio of the total amount of energy consumed by the data center as a whole to the energy consumed by the IT equipment.
At the time (and still today) certain special collector’s editions of games would also come with a free redeemable code which allowed users to download a free premium theme or gamer picture that was related to the game purchased. The Xbox 360 now stood alongside the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii, which were both in their second year as well. The update was released on December 6th, 2011 and with it came a complete new UI and a fresh new take on a platform that has had more than half a decade of changes and enhancements. And at this time I know of no proven method to actually reverting the system back to a previous Dashboard. Both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 are experiencing service issues, according to the Xbox Support website.
Expect problems when accessing all game features, retrieving data stored using cloud storage, capturing game videos, joining Live members in online games posting game performance, and viewing the performance of other Xbox Live members.
Even if you put a backwards-compatible 360 disc into an Xbox One, the newer machine will start downloading a file.
Prior to the full November launch of the feature for all Xbox Live members, backwards compatibility can be used on a case-by-case basis, such as using it on the Rare games included in Rare Replay or for any Gears of War games for purchasers of the Gears of War remake. I bought it to have ready for whenever I finished playing the remake of its predecessor, Banjo-Kazooie.

That’s happening in the shot above as my Xbox 360 registers that I made progress in Perfect Dark while playing the game on my Xbox One. I do plan to just do fresh playthroughs regardless so I'm not worried about incompatible saves, just the fact that I'll miss out of things like Old World Blues or Lair of the Shadow Broker.
The data center of Microsoft in Dublin uses large air-side economizers and make good use of the lower temperature of the outside air. Either with a geothermal heat pump set up or cut out the middle man and just use the earth like you would a radiator in a liquid cooling loop. Unfortunately, water overuse has been drained aquifers such that even the pumping costs would be substantial, and the aquifers will eventually be drained to the point that vacuum-based pumps can no longer draw water. Having the advantage of the lead, Microsoft was able to experiment with various customization options for the consumer’s individual consoles.
The update included YouTube, Skype, Bing Search, Cloud Server Support, Crackle, and many other enhancements that pushed the system to a more modernized interface and improved features that pushed the envelope for social gaming and media.
Personally, I feel the newer dashboards are a bit overwhelming and slightly cumbersome to navigate.
The most recent update mentions both Forza 5 and Titanfall as software affected by the outage.
Those only do if you had originally saved your Xbox 360 game’s saves data to the cloud.
I wanted to show this save-transfer process, though, so I played a little of Tooie on my 360.
As long as you are logged in to the sale Xbox Live profile it will grab your data from the cloud and notify you that it is syncing it.
It makes sense that this happens in both directions, since the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature basically just has the Xbox One pretending to be an Xbox 360. According to a survey of more than 500 data centers conducted by The Uptime Institute, the average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating for data centers is 1.8. The only problem would be how many wells you would have to drill to cool up to 100MW (I'm thinking 20+ at a depth of at least 50ft).
The ability to customize the way your console looked with various themes to fit the front and sides of it was something very different for home console users. That same year, Microsoft changed their logo with a fresh new style that I personally found to be more original and artistic as opposed to the old style. I think it would be cool if Microsoft made an update that allows 360 users to change the dashboard to the one they’re more fond of. The Xbox One storage limit is effectively unlimited, but it will only be able to pull from the 360’s 512MB allotment. If it notices a discrepancy between any existing save progress that you already have on your Xbox One, it will ask you which file you want it to use. For instance, when I purchased my 360 in that first month, the system came with a customizable faceplate of Call of Duty 2 (one of the strong launch titles released that month).
In scrolling from left to right, each section would have a different-colored background signifying its own unique area but you also had the option to change all sections to one background color as well. This new dashboard added numerous new features including an all new UI and the ability to create personalized Avatars, essentially mini characters of yourself. In keeping with this the new brand and style, it was scattered all across the 2010 update in menus and titles. The Xbox One will sniff out your saves when you start your 360 game and will inform you that it is syncing your data.
The 360 helpfully indicates how much room it has left in the cloud, so you can easily tell how much you can load up in one go and how much you need to clear out if you need more space. In system, the dashboard had the ability to have multiple profiles on your console with each user being able to customize the dashboard to exactly fit their own unique style.
Avatars were going to represent each gamer by customizing their body shape, facial features, hair, clothes and accessories. The 360 launched with a horde of different themes but only a couple of them really stood out as being slick and stylish. Additionally, gamers were are able to download free clothes and props for their avatars, as well as purchase new props and gear via the XBOX Live Marketplace.
The menu system changed as well, featuring a more 3D style vibe with more options and sections.
