The functionality will not be available in the following regions: Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Japan, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan.
- Auto-standby feature – Console will be placed on standby if it’s idle for more than one hour, helping to reduce power consumption. This feature will be automatically enabled after you download the update. You can change this setting in the System Settings on your console.
The Spring 2011 Xbox dashboard update also brings support for XGD3 Xbox 360 disc format which allows an extra 1GB space on the usual Xbox DVD by eliminating the extra video sector.
