Not all Xbox 360s compatible with new disc format?

Oopsie; not all Xbox 360s on the market appear to be compatible with the new disc format Microsoft is rolling out. It’s a “very small number” though the company assures, and those affected are reportedly in for a pretty good deal too.

Should your console not play nice with the 1GB larger discs, Microsoft will give you one of the new 250GB Xbox 360 slim designs with a 12-month subscription to Xbox Live to boot. At least one known user has lucked out on the deal, given he’ll ‘jump through all the necessary hoops’. Not too shabby.

The software update allowing consoles to read the new format is expected to begin rolling out tomorrow.
