Default Get NXE now (w/o being able to access LIVE til launch)

http://n4g.com/xbox360/News-224692.aspx

This is at your own risk. If you do the update, you will not have access to avatars, or connect to LIVE until the launch on November 19th. However your console won't be nerfed or banned or anything, just restricted to what you'll be able to access til Nov. 19. I'm debating doing it but i dunno.

I installed this on my bedroom 360. Interface is ok. I'm limited in what all I have access to since Xbox Live is disabled until Nov 19th so not a whole lot I can test right now.

I went ahead and tried the Hard Drive Installation option to see if I noticed a difference. So far I only installed one game and the installation took forever. I didn't notice much of a difference in loading during game-play yet. I'm going to try another game later today and see if that one loads faster. As far as interface goes, I think it runs faster. The new xbox button guide menu is much smoother than the old one and works great in-game.

Since Xbox Live is gimped until Nov 19th, I'd say wait. Updating to the NXE requires downloading a new codec update, so if you like to stream videos to you 360 you're going to lose that until you can access Live. Not having access to Live really leaves you limited in what you can do with NXE.

I would not install it. You could get banned from Xbox live for doing so. This is from a mod at xbox.com

If it is found out that you installed the leaked version of the NXE found on the internet, you run the risk of having your 360 banned from Xbox Live. It's not worth it.

Be patient and wait until the official release. It's not an exclusive, we're all going to get it. Just wait it out and you'll be fine.

Do not post about how to get the leaked NXE update. Do not post about how to install it either.

That does seem a bit harsh and a bit overdone. It is just beta software that is never intended to be sold for profit and whoever installs it would never be able to profit from it either. I am just not sure how it is such a big deal.

Sure, I am 100000% against stealing commercial software, games, movies, music, etc., but I don't quite see how they could be so angry about an early install of something that will be free to all Xbox 360 owners in a couple of weeks.

I have my doubts that they will actually ban anyone from Xbox live over this. I'm betting it was just an attempt to discourage people from doing so. Either way I don't care, I can wait 16 more days for NXE to come out.

My understanding is that you still are supporting leaking software by doing this.
