After the recent NXE update, the Xbox Live Marketplace was consuming loads of bandwidth to give the sleek branding filled look when you're browsing for downloads. Not very good for us here who have broadband that's well... usable... Then there's the whole problem of the undersea cable being damaged again and causing data to have to take the long way around.

So what's a Xbox Live player gotta do to check out the downloads now? Don't fret, you can now do all your marketplace browsing on the WEB. via the marketplace.xbox.com URL, just sign in with your gamertag's LiveID, select what you want to download and the next time your box is turned on and connected to XBox Live it starts downloading what you've selected. So you can still get to the content minus all the branding fluff.

Oh.. I missed a step previously, after signing in be sure to pick the RIGHT country/region you are in to see content which you can dowload. You pick the country by clicking on the country indicator on the upperleft corner on the page. It looks like this.

So remember to choose your proper country, ie. Singapore, US, India, etc. etc. or you won’t be able to see the right content.

No... your 360 doesn't automatically turn itself on and start downloading... maybe in the next update? :P
