Phil Spencer: Xbox One June and July Updates "Look Really Good;" Small Games Good for the Platform

Microsoft has just put the April Xbox One software update in the bag and is preparing to roll out the preview of the one for May, but Xbox Division head honcho Phil Spencer is already looking to those coming beyond next month, and apparently he likes what he’s seeing, and he'd also like to put more smaller games on the platform to help with the wait between big releases.

christocolus884d ago (Edited 884d ago )

I think external hdd and 3d bluray support will be included in one of those updates..

Also im gueesing the june update will include some big feature which will be announced and made available for download as MS E3 conference kicks off.

Wow more updates? amazing Microsoft, great news, what else is big is he confirmed Xbox 360 Minecraft saves will transfer over to Xbox One Minecraft, thats huge news for Minecraft fans

georgeenoob884d ago

You are definitely right bud I can't wait

Phil Spencer was surprised GAMEROOM wasn't successful?

The future looks bright for xbox LOL.

@Fried Goat

I buy quite a few retro games - and Game Room had a fantastic interface, beautifully presented and easy to get into.

It was let down by the fact it basically only had Colecovision and 2600 games. For whatever reason, all the "big guns" of the classic arcade days of my youth, the Taitos, Capcoms, Segas and Konamis were only interested in putting their B and C team releases - if they supported it at all - and save their better & better known releases for their myriad respective, retro re releases and packages.

Which was a shame - I must have over 100 old school arcade titles on XBL (including things like Capcom Classic Arcade Cabinet, which I might add, has an inferior interface/between game experience to Game Room, as does most every retro comp) and it would be good to be able to launch them all from the same app that tracks scores,unlocked content and who's playing what.

It was a good idea, but disappointing that MS bought the drinks, put up the streamers - and no one came to the party.

Fantastic news, they are working on 3 months of updates simultaneously. Keep up the great support MSFT.

jessupj884d ago

This is quite amazing.

The usually suspects are here praising this news.

Normally that would be all fine and good, but for the last few months said usual suspects have been basing indies any chance they can get.

So now all of a sudden indies are great? Serious question.

TRS_Gear883d ago

Honestly can people on this site get anymore butt hurt? Who could possibly 'Disagree' with a comment as harmless as Corvusmd's?

Kingthrash360883d ago

mostly due to the lack of actual "news" in the article.
and the misleading title.

while it is good news ....why are updates news to begin with. since phil took the helm thats all i hear...updates. every system gets updates..vita, wiiu,ps3, 360, ps4, x1, 3ds, pc and apple, phones, bluray players, cable boxes, car stereos..i mean i can go on. like i said its good news but why o why is this so over hyped? its really common. if it was a new game then hype it or a new app or somethin, but since tf came out ALL I HEAR is "update AWSOME" "UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE"
i think thats where the disagrees are coming from...gamers want games...updates are nice but i'd rather hear more games news than updates.

FriedGoat883d ago

I think people mostly disagree because his comment doesn't really add anything to the discussion.

It would be just as useless to write "yes".

k3rn3ll883d ago

Like how the disagree for your comment "keep the good news rolling" shows how many people dont want the xbox to succeed. Sad sad sad. I get liking one more than the other but come on. I prefer xbox but ill eventually get a ps4. Also both doing well is great for the business. But some people want to hate on xbox just because its popular to do so. You hold a grudge like bill gates and phil spencer slept with your ex girl. Some people need to grow up and embrace other gamers. We are supposed to be a community

Pogmathoin883d ago

Looking at all the comments makes me laugh. Look, enough about all the crap, both been out 6 months, one obviously doing much better, though both selling great. Way too much negative on anything that moves. Play some fckn games and stfu at this stage please.....

Speaking of June updates, I'd hope that they have a nice update to announce at E3 (goes live post presentation).

Update containing auto sign in, external HDD, 3D blu ray support, etc would be nice. :)

BX81884d ago

Yeah, auto sign in without kinect would be nice.

SouthClaw884d ago

I really don't understand why you cannot auto sign in. It would not be a hard feature to code for... Xbox turns on > log onto profile X > done. Surely its harder to code for the Kinect login. It makes no sense. It is a pet peeve of mine right now. Only thing I can think of (not saying this as an anti-Xbox person) is they want you using Kinect.

Nicxel884d ago

If it already works perfect with kinect (mine does anyway) why would they feel like they have to do it a different way without kinect? That makes no sense.

Alsybub884d ago

I have to say that I never knew it didn't auto login if the kinect is not attached.

You would think there would be an option to set a default account but then it works so well with Kinect why would you not use it? I suppose, only if it completely ruins the look of your setup.

nicksetzer1884d ago (Edited 884d ago )

Glad to see these consistent monthly updates and support, hoping for DLNA, mp3, and external USB support. Anything more is just "gravy."

Monthly updates, secure network, dedicated servers for all, and a quick efficient interface, that is why I still prefer XBL, free games are really nice, but they shouldn't be in place what I am actually paying for.

supercpu884d ago

WELL said bubble up for you .

Dudebro90884d ago

Dlna is already there. Has been since launch.

nicksetzer1884d ago

Playto ≠ DLNA

That said, I am glad we at least have that.

tokugawa884d ago


except the psn doesn't have dedicated servers for all though.

MidNite884d ago

If your trying to stream movies using DLNA, to your xbox one, just download the xbox video app in the app store. Then select from your phone/tablet stream too option AFTER you select play, I use my SG3 perfectly since launch.

If using windows computer or laptop RIGHT click the video or image and scroll down select PLAY TO xbox OS.

You can also use Kinect to control your media, I'd turn off the hand gestures in Kinect settings while viewing movies its a pain.

Not sure about Mp3 good luck.

ovnipc884d ago

I didnt know that. Thanks man! Bubble for you! I love the xbox and it keeps getting better.

Alsybub884d ago (Edited 884d ago )

Bubble UPnP on Android works perfectly. You select the DLNA server you wish to use and the Xbox as the player and that's it. You can even setup playlists and let them play through.

It's designed for music but works fine with video and photos. If you're rooted you can even stream music from services like Spotify and Deezer straight to the Xbox.

supercpu884d ago

LOOKING FORWARD to testing them out ;) keep up the good work ms ... big thumbs UP!!!
