Microsoft Is Preparing Xbox One Update To Improve ‘The Live Experience’

3

Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten spoke with Engadget at CES on Xbox One sales, updates on game streaming functionality and more. First of all, Microsoft is happy about the reception of Xbox One among consumers and working to bring it to more markets. Marc also acknowledged that consumers are finding it difficult to fully explore the social side of the gaming in Xbox One than that of Xbox 360. Microsoft is already working to fix that experience and expect an update soon.

“The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid; some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things. As a person who’s been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it’s harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren’t right, and I don’t like the model. So what I’m trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let’s take an update and really go through a big list of what we’re hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that’s a theme you’ll really see us push on — that Live experience.”

He also revealed that the delayed game streaming functionality may come before E3 this year. Microsoft is working hard in getting more apps out faster, getting the live TV stuff internationally and more.

    in the UK the xbox one is pretty useless for anything but gaming cant even stream media over a network……….just an unfinished product in that sense still beaten by its predecessor for media, never going to make it to HDMI port One at this rate

    I agree with Ruzzy. I’m having to circumvent something I bought as an all-in-one media device just to do something as simple as stream Netflix because the playback is so poor, and they’re focussing on joining parties??
