Xbox update today, Avatar Kinect rumored for next week

Your Xbox 360 is due a new update today. Don’t get excited though as it won’t manifest in new features or the like.

Instead, “this update is preparation for additional system enhancements coming to Xbox 360 later this year,” Xbox Live’s director of programming Larry Hryb says on his blog.

It does however come just in time to mix and match with a rumor that puts Avatar Kinect’s launch on next week.

A Winrumors source has said the “new Xbox Live social experience,” as Microsoft has put it, will be out on July 27th. That’s next Wednesday.

It’ll add to Kinect’s Fun Labs line of things to mess around with. See below for a video.
