    Bit of a strange question but here goes.

    I bought a 360 elite in the middle of Oct as the games bundle it came with was just what I was looking for.

    The 360 is now packed away as it's a christmas pressie for my son (and me!), however the NXE update has come out since then.

    I've read quite a few posts on various forums stating that it's messed a few things up regarding not being able to connect to Xbox Live & a few other issues.

    We don't have a live account yet as, like I say it's packed away & will not see light of day until 25th Dec.

    I don't really want a nightmare crimbo if it all goes pear shaped when we try to use it - Can anyone put my mind at ease, am I panicking for nothing?

    Alternatively what do you think the chances are of me returning it to Game (where I bought it), getting a credit note & then going in for a newer model (one with NXE already installed) nearer christmas.

    What do you think?

    There is no problems with the NXE and Xbox live.

    There was because everyone was downloading the update near the same time and that caused stress on the server but now it is all fine, You wont have issues install NXE so there is no need returning the xbox.

    eh? people could easily go online with leaked copies.

    and leaked copies has nothing to do with the NXE.
