Xbox 360 turned off while updating

Asked on Twitter recently to weigh in on rumors that Microsoft would turn off the Xbox 360's servers this coming November, Microsoft's top gaming boss Phil Spencer succinctly stated: "Not true."For the sake of comparison, Microsoft discontinued Xbox Live 1.0 service for original Xbox consoles and games, including those playable on Xbox 360, in April 2010.

The console was introduced in November 2001, meaning service was kept up and running for nearly a decade.

I guess it doesn't really matter if it's on or off if I'm going to be away from it, as long as it's downloading.

But I'd still like to know about the automatic shutoff.

However, Microsoft doesn't seem to give any of these explicit warning on the XBOX ONE for it's Instant-On vs Energy Saver power modes.

I think you just have to accept it could possibly happen.

Honestly, the odds of an update exactly as a power outage hits are very much in your favor, but they do exist.

I know for the PS4 - the system "explicitly" tells you to properly shut-down the console by choosing the "Turn Off PS4" option if you plan to disconnect the power supply of the console - instead of the "Standby".

I figure if you get a power-outage while the system was busy background downloading something in "Standby Mode" - it could potentially corrupt the HDD in the console.
