Also coming in August is Mobile Purchase, where you can use Xbox One SmartGlass and the web to purchase Games and Add Ons with the option to have them download immediately to your Home console.

I like it. now give me my pre order and pre load option

XB1_PS4650d ago

The updates are one of the best parts about owning an XB1 at the moment. They're taking the input, and making progress. The new achievement snap feature is quickly turning into my most used feature.

xbox got bluray 3d faster than PS4. WAttt!!

Mr Pumblechook650d ago (Edited 650d ago )

Yes the updates are regular but a part of that is including features already on PlayStation 4 including Activity Feed. I want to see Microsoft develop their own unique features.

HaveAll3650d ago

I love the new achievement leaderboard wish they done that a lot sooner and finally 3-D

Gozer650d ago (Edited 650d ago )

The Activity Feed has been present since launch for the X1. The comment and like functions are new.

Mr Pumblechook650d ago

@Gozer. I don't have an Xbone yet so thanks for clarifying that.

DLConspiracy650d ago

Yeah I think these are great. They are making it more social than it already is. I love it.

Damm microsoft are doing an excellent job supporting their console since launch. They have been very responsive when it comes to acting on feedback. I like it, my X1 has really taken over my living room.

This. I struggle to understand why that's not on there already. It seems painfully obvious to me that it should be there. I would've given them at least $180 for Sunset Overdrive, Halo, and Destiny already... If my attention sways to another game, they might not get that money from me.

AngelicIceDiamond650d ago

One of THE most significant updates since the March update.

nicksetzer1650d ago (Edited 650d ago )

I gotta say, every single part of this update looks amazing, and soo much of it was directly from user feedback which is great that they are listening. The new leadership (no don, no balmer, etc) and direction that MS has taken is really impressive, especially in such a short time.

FanboyKilla650d ago

@pumblechook ps 4 has features? like what name them please. i have been using mine wrong.

The_Infected650d ago (Edited 650d ago )

This is one great thing about Microsoft they really do a great job with the dashboard updates. I really like all these new features. The new leaderboards on the dashboard are great.

AngelicIceDiamond650d ago

The leaderboards on the dashboard is very nice feature.

I also find it funny because Peter Moliuneux didn't want the new consoles to focus on "a new way to integrate Facebook on console"

Like, comment, and send game clips to friends sounds very facebooky to me lol hes mad.

Peter probably wants an indie store front more than anything that's probably why hes been complaining.

Dontworrybhappy649d ago

no your not, i strongly believe you dont even own an XB1

nicksetzer1650d ago

I don't think he owns any next gen consoles at all, to be perfectly honest.

JBSleek650d ago

Also there is finally 3D bluray playback.

Volkama650d ago

Oh! I can finally say farewell to my PS3!

Well, when I get my xbox fixed anyway.

Bonkerz650d ago

Damn good update, MS! The mobile ordering, the friends list thing looks awesome way better then it was. 3D support is quite cool i know alot of people been asking for it. A lot of nice features, the console truly just gets better every month. So does this verify that preloading, preordering is coming next month? Im sure they are gonna wanna test it before launching it since we already know its definitely coming before sunset overdrive.

SteamPowered650d ago

I hope MS takes a page from the Steam App. You can purchase and download games right to your PC and have them ready by the time you get home. You can also chat your friends on the Steam App. This is so handy and I would love being able to remotely download my new purchases for consoles.

Volkama650d ago (Edited 650d ago )

I want steam's wish list. And prices obviously, but that's less likely :-(

mhunterjr650d ago

According to the video, this is how it works...

SteamPowered650d ago

So youre saying Microsoft blatantly ripped off the Steam app? Thats a bold statement Mr....
