Microsoft has just revealed that they started to deploy the latest 1404 update (xb_rel_1404.140411-1830)
Great MS is all over this Keep them coming
How could anyone disagree with this? Isn't it a good thing for Microsoft to be making their console better?
MS is slowly chiseling the Xbox One like a large block of marble until it reaches perfection.
The reason i disagree is because they are not updates they are fixes. Yeah it's good that they are fixing known issues but the thing is these problems shouldn't be there in the first place. All of these updates for the Xbox One have been full of fixes, it's a bit ridiculous that so many is needed.
@UnbiasedOpinions, That was a perfect post!
@pedrof93 "Go Uglybox One" How old are YOU??
Don't give up, MS!!!
It is one thing to be a fan of a particular console or PC but to the extent of spewing forth such imbecilic bile simply serves no purpose whatsoever. I suppose the fans of (insert console or even PC) would prefer if the other teams just up and close shop; then the surviving team (again, insert console or PC) would have a monopoly whereas they would be able to offer the common, albeit limited, mainstream games at inflated prices and we would have no choice but to suck it up and buy such meager offerings. In addition, due to the reduced/removed competition, there would be no need to update, fix or improve the one and only system left on the market. Of course, fortunately for us, this will never happen in capitalistic society but it sure seems like many fanboys would like nothing more. Healthy competition breeds success. Folks who really love games want to see all formats flourish – we all win.
Haters gon hate.
Wow, all the troll tagging and this is just a simple firmware update.... really going tooooo far.... ridiculous guys.... really, just play some games at this stage.....
Exactly! Currently, we have so many crazy choices of games and methods to play them...perhaps folks should get busy playing and reduce just a bit of the sniveling.
Apparently i was trolling for pointing out that these are fixes and not updates. It's ridiculous how far the fanboys have gone on this forum. Sony and Microsoft fans are impossible to talk to.
MS keeps making my console of choice better and better. Keep it up MS!
Got to hand it to them, MS is on ball doing update to their OS. You paying attention Sony? Theres too much basic stuff missing from the PS4, which didnt bother me at launch I was just happy you spent your time well getting the console out, but now that the honeymoon is over I'd like to see that youre working on these things. I mean does it seem weird to anybody else that I can finally capture screenshots from any game, but I can no longer have custom wallpapers?
Yeah, I'm dying for some UI updates to my ps4. I need some sort of sorting. Apps, Live from, Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, Browser, Headphone Companion, Library, Playroom, What's New, six retail games, five or six cross buy games from ps3, three or four F2P games, and like ten or so indie games all on one horizontal line is a mess. I'm sure others out there with more coin for games have it worse than me, too.
Good luck with that. 7 years later and you can't even sort games in alphabetical order on PS3
Hit me with the flavour! I'm aware of that, but I do believe this is a different case as on ps3 at least the games were lumped into the games section on xmb. On ps4, everything is just a mess with apps and such lost in the mix.
Yeah PS4 is bursting with potential but almost feels like an empty shell. I hope they don't waste all time and resources on VR.
man if there is one thing i would definitely love to have asap (and have been impatiantly asking for) is for some different backgrounds/wallpapers .. So tired of looking at the blue background i can't wait to get into a game lol.. they also need to get that Spotify app on there , my fav streaming music service on PS4 would be a dream. :)
Bug fixes ... Wow
Dont be mad cause the xone is on the move. My ps4 seems a lil out of date compared to my xone. I have both so one can pick up the short comings of the other. If you are a ps4 only guy or gal, i guess ignorance is bliss. Good job ms keepem hateing.
Not noticed any of the problems listed but tweaks are good, shows they're on the ball. Don't think I've ever had a ps4 update, and there is an endless list of improvements that could be made.
I wish Sony would start pushing out updates like this. I really miss custom themes. The interface is great, but there's some core features still missing.
Updates that addresses problem you mean like these fixes.Yes sony has already been updating.But sort of updates you are talking about would be welcome on both consoles.It start of new gen we just going have to be patient.Remember xbox 360 and ps3 when it first came out now look at them today.
As an owner of both PS4, XB1, and Wii U, I'll say the reason Sony haven't or hasn't pushed out updates as consistently as Microsoft is simple. Microsoft = SOFTWARE company, this is what they do best. Sony = HARDWARE company, this is their specialty. Anyhow, I'm going to try and update my console now. That's to say if it hasn't automatically updated since I never shutdown my console. ( it's connected to my living room tv, which stays on approximately 20 hrs a day )
That's stupid. For one, the PS3 saw hella updates, meaning Sony is no stranger to frequent updates. For another, this isn't a feature adding update, but one to correct minor fixes. If Sony isn't releasing such updates, the most likely reason is because there's not as much of a need for them. One thing I find interesting is how the Xbox community is praising the frequent updates the PS3 was- and still is, honestly- lambasted for. I mean, it's good that the system is receiving fixes and all, but I also agree with the apparently trolling idea that these are fixes that probably shouldn't have made it to the launch product in the first place.
I hope they stopped the "screaming" sound the Kinect makes whenever I leave it alone in a pitch dark room. It's kind of creepy.
This made me laugh...lol
The profile picture just does it for me, bubble for funny.
@edonus Are you being serious? If so thats the most laziest thing I've read.
Microsoft are always great with updates and adding new things as they did with the 360, glad they are continuing this with the x1.
Sony seriously need to pull their socks up. No matter what you think of them Microsoft are making the right moves to claw themselves back in to the title race while Sony don't seem to be doing anything, at least publically to improve the system. Now the PS4 has been out a while it's become more & more obvious that it needs some serious upgrades in the UI & functionality department. The promises made by Sony that all these things would come almost straight after launch are now 6 months old & we've heard & seen nothing! Don't drop the ball now when u started off so well!
I haven't seen anything saying that I got my update yet (although I should have), but what I have noticed is that the menus and voice commands are even better than they already were. Now it seems like I say something, and it's there almost instantly. I remember them saying they were doing some UI fixes, this must be them, because it's been so smooth for the last 24 hours or so. Nice job. Keeps getting better.
I still haven't received the update yet. I've even done hard resets to try to force the update. Strange that it won't work for me.
It's articles like these and the fact dx12 is coming later this year that make me think MS rushed out their console, I mean they are a software company and this is their strength no reason for all these fixes unless it was rushed that's why I'm going to wait another year before making my decision on which to buy, I'm leaning Sony right now due to the PS+ program,but I also think MS has something up their sleeve always saying this is a marathon not a sprint.
Yeah because Microsoft never updates any of their other software. /s
Microsoft pushes updates out like clockwork for Windows on "Patch Tuesdays". Anyone who follows MS knows these updates are all part of its mantra of "update, update, update".
DX12 is end of next yr.
The reason I disagree is because MS has already sent out the DX12 tools to developers not all of them mind you, but the main ones. (Developers)
Havnt received mine yet either :/ I guess its rolling out in small chunks to every1...shouldnt it say "system update" in settings when we do receive it? Glad that MS is making improvements to the console! Keep it up MS :) much appreciated
This update is only for the beta testers. I wish they would release the update soon for the rest of us.
This update will add that "check for update" option in settings for future updates.
I don't think I've ever seen a pro-Xbox thread get so many marked comments. The frothing ********* must be going out of their minds with nothing to play.
Wow so many troll post taken down
The comment section in this article is just utter immature childish chaos. This extreme "fanboyism" bussiness has to stop. There's nothing wrong with supporting ur fav brand, or with being a "fanboy". But arguments over which is better should be done with intelligent, non violent, inoffensive ways. They say Gamers should be smarter than non–gamers, it doesn't look like it at all.
I have to admit, Sony needs updates like this.
Way to go MS.. kudos to you
@Red_Tracers You're making way too much damn sense. Did you forget which website you were on? I've been saying the same thing for years, and it's like pulling teeth here. See I like games and I'm a gamer first and foremost. So if a certain game comes out, I will buy it on whatever console it comes on, but for some reason on this website there's some unwritten law that you can't buy the opposing company's console, because it would upset the balance of fanboyisim here. Sit your damn pom poms down and take your koolaid glasses off, enjoy the games and be a gamer first, not a fanboy.
reading this whole comments section makes no sense. I see a couple disagree and a bunch of fanboy raging over nothing and no one said anything on what they are attacking about!! How this made top of the page earlier make no sense. This is just an update .. lets not get ahead of ourselve and make this a OMGZ GREAT NEWS EVERRRRRRRRRR
