We should know by now that nothing can hide from the power of the Internet. Some individual(s) have managed to swipe the install files for the New Xbox Experience and put them up online for any and all to use. No, we’re not going to provide a link to the site where you can download it because it’s not supposed to be available until Nov. 19.
As is mostly the case with early releases, there are some drawbacks to downloading the NXE. If you install the update you won’t be able to access Xbox LIVE until Nov. 19. Keep in mind that Gears of War 2, Call of Duty: World at War and Left 4 Dead all come out before the 19th. So you’d be effectively robbing yourself out of a half of month’s worth of online gaming. There’s also no real guarantee that Microsoft won’t get ticked off and start dropping some digital punishment down on you.
