Xbox 360 Spring 2011 Update Coming May 19th

This Spring/Summer all Xbox360 uses will get a steady stream of updates that improve lots of different aspects of the service and also add some exciting new features. The main additions are the online payment service Paypal and Avatar Kinect soon after. The addition of PayPal will extend payment options to “new international markets.” The update will also add support for Microsoft’s new disc format (implemented in late 2011).

The updates will be distributed in six separate installments between May 19th and May 30th to “ensure high quality deployment.”

The PayPal addition is a great thing as now users will not have to use their credit cards which means that if the service ever got hacked (see PSN) your more sensitive data would be protected.
