Microsoft plans to continue rolling out monthly system updates for Xbox One throughout 2015 following a short break over the Christmas period, Xbox chief Phil Spencer has confirmed.
I have to commend MS with they way they are releasing features with their updates. the system now does everything I wanted is its streaming my movies and music: check uploading to youtube: check friend notifications: check to name a few, great work MS.
MS is certainly saying all the right words. Updates slow down for holiday to ensure service is stable and everyone connecting is enjoying their time. Next year, the fast and furious introduction of features continue! I like MS as underdog. Games are stellar, bundles are great value, features are fantastic, and service is top notch unbeatable!
I think its not just about putting out updates that has been impressive. It has been how they have transformed the features and functionality of the X1 through these updates. MS has done an good job of keeping the system stable, keeping their online services stable and bringing new features to the gaming and media experience. MKV, 3D Blu-Ray, Snap, Achievement app snapping, Friends Leaderboard, Skype snapping, External Drive (with marketplace content) support, boot to TV, etc., etc. and this month the store re-work. MS is listening to feedback and putting it into X1. The experience has vastly improved since launch at a very rapid pace.
Have to give credit where credit is due. They do deserve a break. We never had any console to have so many updates within a year's time.
didn't they had the video player feature to support mkv and other formats listed to be included until end of the year?
That update came out a while ago.
off topic: Septic!!! I tried Sunset OD last night... OMG!!! It's bloody amazing!!! HaHa! Edit: Better type something on topic incase I loose another of these annoying bubbles. On Topic: I like Monthly updates :)
Really? I can play .mkv files directly from a thum drive now? AWESOME!! *___* I'm sorry that I'm not up-to-date on these updates because I'm a PS player ^^ but I love to use my X1 as a mkv player because Sony does not have this feature (yet) or is not interested in implementing it... <_<
ms as a underdog is best for us the gamer... One more week to play halo 2 mp
the awaited screenshots feature continues. but thats awesome to hear, UI will probably look completely different by years end in 2015.
U should be enjoying your ps4, if u have one, but instead of trolling. I know Im with my xbox one and ps4
Happy Holidays Team Xbox!!! Thanks for all the hard work this year! Looking forward to enjoying your offerings through 2015. From, A Happy Gamer.
MS is doing a great job with the updates. And the X1 still has a long way to go before it's pretty much complete. I'm anticipating DX12. Also I'm looking forward to MS shortening the install times on the X1. Phil said they would improve it.
they deserve that break. xbox uservoice is one of the best things about xbox one.
The best UI and OS in console and they've been giving us features like crazy and deserved to be getting some times off for the holidays. Job well done guys!
I'm just wondering what they will come back with, I know ideas will be flowing. The updates have been great and being in the preview program has been even better. Good to see they've listened all year.
Microsoft, well done with the updates and the way you've been supporting your console. I really do appreciate it
Great job MS, you transformed the Xbox One into a true next gen experience in just one year... break well deserved😉
I think they have earned a little R&R. Good job with the updates, MS!
