Tomorrow's eagerly awaited Xbox One system update must be downloaded manually, an Xbox representative confirmed today.
Moderators Note: Down Load requires manual acceptance, it will down load automatically.
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.
LOL...you are funny.
gotta remind my friend about this.
You know, I notice lot of people being bubbled down lately including me. What on earth is going on?
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
Anyone know what time it goes live in uk?
Wonder how big the update is. I want to play some BF4.
X1 updates can't help the broken game
Will update before I go to class if it's available
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
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
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.
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:)
Actually it does support Digital Surround sound. Check out this page: http://support.xbox.com/en-... Hope it helps!
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
There's a major update tomorrow aswell
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.
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.
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...
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.
Ya the last update happened fully in standby for me i believe
awesome cant wait for tmmrw and march 4th titanfall inbound
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
This is all part of the Titanfall/redistribution of power update. 1 of 2.
Oooh! Battery indicator, handy :)
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%
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.
and you got disagree because?
because he forgot to replace "xbox one" and "microsoft" with "PS4" and "Sony". It is simple as that.
Glad to hear this. I'm a day 1 PS4 owner and will have my Xbox One Wednesday.
Its fake... http://kotaku.com/youll-onl...
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.
Game developer says "Our game is running 1080p comfortably on Xbox One." Sony fans immediately start screaming "HAHA proof Xbox One can't do 1080p!" More like proof they don't read articles before they start trolling.
Yeah, i found that article and the comments rather funny. All the usual trolls showed up.
Wow so many losers on this site !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get a life plz sony fans just because you guys don't any games to play stick to your articles xbox one ftw it's the more complete console ps4 slight graphic advantage <xbox everything else have fun with second son after a 20 hour single player then what drive club lmao. Titanfall hundreds of hours of awesomeness.
20 Titles in the "green" for PS4 http://www.metacritic.com/b... compared to 9 in the "green" for XBONE http://www.metacritic.com/b... 116 games for PS4(released and upcoming) http://www.vgchartz.com/pla... 86 games for XBONE(released and upcoming) http://www.vgchartz.com/pla... You can put titanfall in your pipe and smoke it..... Infinity Ward rejects haven't had my money since the first Modern warfare....They should call themselves Activision Respawned. 6vs6 is so 1990's hardly next gen is it. Joint Operations were doing 64 player maps (up to 64square KM's) That were almost ten years ago on half, even quarter of the RAM. Try harder
6vs6 is better with friends the opposing team knows when they blow when u keep killing them bf4 is good to but when u get knifed or c4ed or anything you have no satisfaction in paying the son of a bitch back I guess what ever floats your boat I'm all about team play and paying back a shithead
Project spark>everything in the world with a sony logo and your list lol j/k not that serious
Yeah and most are Indies. Now remove all those indie titles and multi-plats and we can see just how poor the PS4's lineup of games is compared to the X1. MS has dropped $1 billion on game development for the X1 while Sony talks up indies because they have nothing else except the same old; Uncharted, Infamous etc.. milk. Yeah, MS has it's share of milk to but to their credit they've added a lot of new IP's on top of that. The X1 is now the hated console just like the PS3 was in the beginning of last gen. But like the PS3, the X1 will start spitting out the exclusives and gamers will flock to it. All the current and past X1 negativity will be long forgotten and MS will be out in front just as it was; and still is with the PS3. All MS has to do is bring the games and you can stick a fork in Sony and the PlayStation brand. Sony has no money and their credit has been dropped to junk status I wouldn't expect much fight from them this time around. The clock is ticking.
@Codey47, smh..you lost your credibility when posting a link to Vgchartz that PS fans totally ignored during last generation and now they are using it like it is the gospel of sales. LOL
Shouldn't these features and more have been added before launch. You had 8 years to bloody do it!
Not to be an ahole but this update is pointless because it should already have been on the system. Microsoft should be working on updating sdk coding (eSRAM) so the system can play games at native 1080p and 60fps or update for the expensive 7.1 xb360 headsets to work on the xbone that we spent mad money on like Sony did for the pulse heads to work for ps4.
Make sure to start update an hour before you actually play a game. Lol
"Todays update sponsored by mountain dew"
From everything I've read that is official, this is flat out false.
very excited for the updates, improvements are always good
>People actually bought a the worst game console and VCR on this planet Thank god PS4 will win 8th gen.
Ugh. Hate updating
Can we get the guy who wrote that title perma-flagged as a troll? What update doesn't require a manual "it's okay to update my console" authorization, which is what this actually is?
so anyone do it yet?
When is this update happening? I live in the U.S. and live on GMT time? And today is the 11th.
Xbox one update will require you to update your xbox ones update... In other news you now have to manually eat food
