年に二回ほどおこなわれるXbox 360の大規模システムアップデートについて噂が聞こえてくる時期になりました。ゲーム系姉妹サイトJoystiqには、ある情報提供者から数十項目におよぶ「アップデート項目不完全リスト」なるものが届いています。内容はもし仮にいくつかでも実現するなら、過去のアップデートのなかでも最大の変化になるかもしれないもの。

項目のなかには「Windows Live ID所有者に対してマイクロソフトポイントを送信する」、あるいは懸案だった未成年アカウントの「昇格」といった比較的地味な内容もある一方、
  • ロード高速化のため、ストレージデバイスにデータをインストールするタイトル(ゲーム)のサポート
  • グループプライベートチャット(4)およびビデオカンファレンスチャットの導入
  • Windows Live Mailの統合
  • モーションセンサーデバイスのキャリブレーションメニュー
  • ゲーマーカードのステータスに現在視聴している動画コンテンツのタイトルを表示するオプション (マーケットプレースからダウンロードしたビデオのみ)
  • Inside Xboxを拡大してポータル化。ニュースや天気予報、エンターテインメント情報、ヘルプやコミュニティ機能の統合。
  • メッセージ通知ポップアップに内容の一部を表示
  • パーソナルプロフィール欄の拡大、項目増加
  • 実績ゼロのタイトルを実績リストから取り除くオプション
  • 一部タイトルについて、Xbox 360とPCのGames for Windows - LIVEタイトルとのあいだでファイル共有サポート
  • 開発者やスタッフ用のゲーマーカードデザイン(本物か識別できるように)
  • メディアにPodcastサポート。ストレージデバイスへのダウンロード
  • Xbox 360からWindows Live メッセンジャーにログインした場合のヘッドセット・カメラ・ウィンクサポート
  • Xbox Liveの音声メッセージ・写真メッセージをxbox.comから閲覧可能に
  • 選択した着信メッセージのサーバサイド保存
などなど。現時点ではあくまで未確認情報であり、どれが実現するかは分かりません。本来なら大歓迎のはずのアップデート内容ですが、 「マーケットプレースの長いアイテム説明文を右スティックでスクロール」(現在は画面に収まらない説明文の場合、自動スクロールをじっと待つどうしようもない仕様)といったことまで書かれると、すばらしすぎて「希望による拷問」を狙った悪意のあるいたずらではないかと疑いたくなります。不完全リストはリンク先Joystiqまたは「続きを読む」にて。
