Microsoft Releases Xbox 360 1080p Update

Just in time to make Sony sweat a little bit more, Microsoft has finally released the long-awaited sixth Xbox 360 update, which adds, among a ton of other things, 1080p support for both movies and games. The update will go live today for all Gold and Silver Xbox 360 members, and doesn't require your Xbox to have a hard drive installed (for all you Core owners out there). Obviously, the update is meant to support Microsoft's soon-to-be-unleashed HD-DVD add-on for their next-gen system, but how long until game developers start adding 1080p options to their games? My guess is that we won't need to wait long; to see the full list of things that'll be included in this massive update, check out's list and get to downloadin'!
