I think given how the XOne for many has their TV also running through the system it makes a bit of sense it would be a manual update. This way you can hold off on doing the update if its hitting during a time you would want to watch something. Update later when you are ready. I am sure it also has a "use of terms" change that needs to be "accepted" at some point which has become standard practice for consoles.

You know, I notice lot of people being bubbled down lately including me.

What on earth is going on?
nosferatuzodd  +   408d ago
the bubble system sucks on this site ppl bubble you down just because they don't agree not because you're trolling,they have no one judging the bubble down system who could say thats not trolling u cant bubble someone down just because u don't like them are their idea sad

People are moaning coz u have to press a couple of buttons to download an update...how fat and lazy are you people that using energy to download an update is too much....get a life people
USA007  +   409d ago
It's more the fact that the update could take a while, and if it was automatic it would happen when the update was released, and not on your own game time
TheBrit  +   409d ago
I'm sorry but have any of the past xbox updates taken 'a while' I think even the last time they overhauled the dashboard it was still the same if not quicker than a lot of the ps3 SLLLOOOWWWWWW system updates.
dantesparda  +   409d ago
Just look at the fanboy circle jerk started up here by GadgetGooch and followed up by Thebrit. Nobody is moaning about it except you (Gadgetgooch). And look at the amount of stupid fanboys that agreed with him. Its like you guys are always on fight mode. Talk about being on edge. Now have fun disagreeing away, it wont change the fact. You guys are highly defensive

I hope they update the surround sound for watching TV via the Xbox one... I split my hdmi so I can watch TV without the Xbox one. By splitting the hdmi I still have the option of watch TV via the Xbox one, but I get much better sound (I have a 7.1 Onkyo receiver) without the Xbox one. The wife also likes to watch TV without the Xbox One on- (having a harmony one remote is a must for a happy marriage:)
JJShredder  +   409d ago
Actually it does support Digital Surround sound. Check out this page:


Hope it helps!
MrWegman  +   409d ago
Thanks for the reply- I was aware of this option and have it turned on. The problem with my setup is that I get sound from my two rear speakers, but no sound from my side speakers while watching TV via the xbox one. The xbox one games sound amazing from my 7.1 setup… not a big deal, but would like to see an update so this option is no longer beta.

Thanks again...

You people need to read. The MAJOR update comes in March. Microsoft doesnt want to push nonstop updates when they dont have to. In MARCH this update along with the big one will push straight to the systems
jackanderson1985  +   409d ago
There's a major update tomorrow aswell
SliceOfTruth888  +   409d ago
its not a major update tomorrow

I have PS4 and XBone. Unless I'm missing something, PS4 does NOT auto-update, it only auto-downloads. Every update I've received still has to be installed, just like the PS3. If this XBone update allows for all future updates to auto-update instead of just auto-download, that would be very nice indeed.

The thing some people don't seem to understand is that there are different types of updates, and some require you to "Accept" the TOS, so they can't be 100% automatic.
busytoad  +   409d ago
the reason they give you the option to accept the tos is so you can't sue them if the patch bricks the system. Microsoft plays it smart to keep their butts clean while the consumer is screwed.
AnEwGuY  +   409d ago
busytoad, GTFO with that nonsense. It's no different with Sony, Nintendo, EA, Activision, etc. Whether it's a software or a firmware update, a TOS serves the same purpose for them ALL...it's not just that "Microsoft plays it smart...while the customer is screwed".

Good news so far.

XBL system updates in time for Titanfall as well as developers getting an updated SDK to run faster and make games run 1080p easier according to Rebellion games.

Sounds great so far.

@Cozomel Wtf is wrong with you? This is the second time I get nerd attacked by this kid.

According to Rebellion the X1 will do 1080p easier. Where in my statement did I say it mattered. 720p 900, 1080 whatever its all good to me.

Again with the fanboy stuff? Is that why your marked down for trolling and I'm not?

Seriously don't reply to me again...
purp13m0nk3y  +   409d ago
I'm pretty sure that the PS4 auto updates if you have the option ticked. There have been several updates since launch and I can't remember having to do them manually.

There is just a notification to say that an update was installed. It all happens in the background even if the system is in standby mode.
wsoutlaw87  +   409d ago
Ya the last update happened fully in standby for me i believe

Not trolling or anything but The X1 already has Auto Download and update feature since day one.... this is just a manual update because it changes so much to your system so they need your permission to update the system. It is more then just some measily uupdate to a game like adding jerseys and stuff its a complete overhaul and only part 1 of 2
Tedakin  +   409d ago
This is all part of the Titanfall/redistribution of power update. 1 of 2.

I'm just glad they got rid of the annoying flashing the 360 controller had when the battery was running down. It started at 50% and drove me nuts when gaming. Should have started at 10%
xx4xx  +   409d ago
I liked it at 50 (maybe a little less would be OK)...at 10 I wouldn't have enough time to recharge another battery. :)

Got my xbox one last weekend, after owning ps 4 from the start. And I have to say that thing is freaking brilliant! Loving it so far! And microsoft will make the console only better.
norman123  +   409d ago
and you got disagree because?
No_Limit  +   409d ago
because he forgot to replace "xbox one" and "microsoft" with "PS4" and "Sony". It is simple as that.
Phish  +   409d ago
Glad to hear this. I'm a day 1 PS4 owner and will have my Xbox One Wednesday.
Games_R_Us  +   409d ago
And with that, its all sorted. I'm amazed at the sheer number of posts on this article that are SPAM, OFF TOPIC, TROLLING etc.

Pretty pathetic and if you need to justify your console purchase do it somewhere else please. Some of us actually care about a news story affecting our system and dont need the debate between fans to cloud that story.

I sure hope the X Bone pulls out its trump card. Halo was the only justification for my 360 purchase but that lasted all but 2 months. I have yet to find a reason to tear away from my Sony brand. Nintendo came close but ruined that by being so Nazi exclusive.
