    You also get copy of Halo: Reach if you're excepted. I'd also like to point out that it's CONTINENTAL U.S. only. Sorry Alaska and Hawaii.

    I'll try if I get in and there is anything worthwhile in the update. If it's JUST the new disc format update, I won't bother.

    I guess the updated disc format will improve security as well as remove the 'DVD player' partition, and reduce the amount of system date in general, to increase the amount of data games can use. I remember that the current disc format only supports around 6 to 7 GB of the available DVD-DL space for game data. And with games getting bigger and such (and fallen security), I agree that a new disc format would be a good thing.

    im guessing the update will be on this new disc xbg3 (Rumoured name) which adds 1gb storage new security usually blah blah just another road block that will be overcome in time just near the point that slims fw is almost released

    You are still getting the disc. The only difference between Disk update and Live update is the method for which your 360 is updated.
