Owners of the Xbox One console, listen up! There might be some good news in store for you, as whispers are going around that the Xbox One console is on its way to receive a significant system update which will address several Xbox Live and interface issues this coming March. Granted, that would be slightly more than a month away if one were to look at the big picture optimistically, and it so happens to be the very same update that was discussed by Microsoft’s Marc Whitten earlier in January. The tipster who shared this particularly juicy bit of information is also touted to be the very same person who dated Forza Horizon 2 for September, Crackdown 3 for 2016 and Halo 2: Anniversary for November 11.
What are some of the improvements that you would like to see happen or arrive on your Xbox One this coming March? Chief Product Officer (for Xbox One, of course) Marc Whitten did share, “The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid. Some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things. As a person who’s been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it’s harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren’t right, and I don’t like the model. So what I’m trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let’s take an update and really go through a big list of what we’re hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that’s a theme you’ll really see us push on — that Live experience.”
