Microsoft has rolled out a new update for its last-generation gaming console Xbox 360, launched in 2005. It was last updated in March 2016.

“There are no specific details about what it does, other than bringing ‘minor bug fixes and improvements’,” Techspot reported on Monday.

The gaming console in 2016 was updated with similar bug-fixing and improvement oriented amendments in its software, a month before Microsoft announced it was ceasing production of new Xbox 360s.

“At Microsoft we consider privacy a fundamental right, and we believe stronger privacy protections through greater transparency and accountability should benefit our customers everywhere,” said Julie Brill, Corporate Vice President for Global Privacy and Regulatory Affairs and Chief Privacy Officer.
