Possible to download xbox 360 updates onto pc first?

I think the answer is no, but would like to be sure.....

I have a very slow internet connection at home so would like to download game updates on my pc at work, then transfer them (usb hdd, cd, dvd) to the xbox when home. Is this possible?

Yes it is, download, or load certain games which will update dash. Xblades I think does update from disc.

While the maps are not important, its a little annoying they dont allow pc downloads!

I guess its to prevent piracy, but im sure if they wanted they could lock pc downloads to ensure they only work on a certain xbox, based on its serial number.

They can in reverse eg you prime it up on pc so that when you switch on 360 you can download DLC addon content to it. I have in past been told after switching on one of my 360 that the download does not match the 360 I set it up for.

M$ is poor for implementation of lots of things the 360 is no exception.

Its no good for ppl who dont have broadband at home (like me) though.

Im sure if they implemented a pc download system they would make a lot more money, but i guess old gatesy doesnt really need it!
