Xbox LIVE spokesman comments on the issue
Microsoft has recently begun work on an update that will correct problems with the Xbox consoles color quality. It seems that any movie not purchased in the Xbox’s Zume Marketplace had only a resolution of 720p, while movies bought directly from Microsoft had a resolution of 1080p.
Sounds fishy, and although this mishap, if you could call it that, seems intentional, Xbox Live spokesperson Larry Hryb wrote the next update will “fix a color issue that some were experiencing, and it will be immediately notable in the dashboard. The fix is also being applied by partners to their apps on Xbox LIVE, which we expect to roll out over the coming month.”
The problem has also been experienced through other partners to the gaming company within the Xbox Marketplace; in particular, customers have had problems with the color output of their Netflix videos. Hryb assures console owners, “The fix is also being applied by partners to their apps on Xbox LIVE, which we expect to roll out over the coming months.”
Users will be required to download the latest update upon their next log-in and are “expected” to notice their color issues being resolved. Hryb is assured in his company’s dedication to the issue, “This update will increase performance and is part of our continued effort to provide the best possible Xbox LIVE experience”
Not all problems might be corrected immediately though considering Xbox partners are also required to correct problems. But the good news is the cat is out the bag and the problem seems to have a solution in sight. Xbox assures all color related problems will be corrected in the upcoming months.
