' Xbox.com has been updated with info on how to get the latest emulation drivers on your Xbox 360. '
The first update, branded "November 2005", allows to play all the original Xbox games on the list Microsoft released 2 weeks ago.
There are 3 ways to get this update:
- Update through Xbox Live.
- Burn a DVD or CD.
- Order a disc by mail from Xbox.com (available early December).
The DVD/CD option could certainly be interesting to learn more about the whole system. You can download the file here directly from xbox.com or we have also added to the 360-hq.com website to make it easy for our 360 users to find.
The zip-file contains one 2.5MB .xex file (which will give BC-support for over 200 games!), that's an Xbox 360 executable (like .xbe for the original Xbox). Once burned on CD-R or DVD+-R you'll be able to run the update on your 360 from the CD/DVD.
