Xbox 360 update to bring international PayPal support

10 May 2011

Microsoft’s next annual spring update for the Xbox 360 Dashboard will reportedly enable international support for PayPal.

According to documents from a Microsoft tech support employee sent to Joystiq, PayPal support will be the “only user facing feature” of the update which will bring PayPal support to new international markets.

The update will also offer support for a new Microsoft disc format used for future game titles later in 2011.

The Xbox 360 dashboard update will be distributed in six separate waves between 19-30 May.

Separate from the update, Avatar Kinect will be made available on 27 May, which will implement facial recognition to Xbox 360 avatars.
