Report: Xbox 360 Update Uglies Up Video Playback

That Xbox 360 update that makes gamers promise not to sue and reportedly broke some consoles also may have brought another annoyance along with it. Reports say updated machines have trouble properly playing video, making colors appear washed out.

According to Eurogamer, the update makes the console play uglier video for a variety of technical reasons. As Kotaku notes, messing with the TV display settings to nullify the problem messes up the way games look.

Microsoft has yet to address the issue, other than generic “thanks for the feedback” replies.
