Xbox 360 Update Adds WPA2 Support For WiFi Adapter

A new Xbox 360 system update is rolling out this morning, bringing support for the WPA2 security protocol to the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter. Owners will be prompted to download the mandatory update when they next sign into Xbox Live.

Microsoft's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hyrb stresses that the update does not include the upcoming Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm integration nor the Zune Marketplace 1080p "instant-on" streaming video, which are all scheduled to arrive "later next month."

A new version of the Wireless Adapter with support for 802.11n in the works.
