The Xbox One will soon be getting a big update which will address many peoples issues with the general interface of the console.
Microsoft’s chief product officer Marc Whitten spoke with Engadget and explained some of the reasons for the update:
“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.”
Unfortunately we do not have a date for this update, hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for it! It is very clear that the Xbox One software was rushed, a lot of things have become much more difficult to do when compared to the 360 and while the voice stuff is great; it would be nice if the interface was a bit more intuitive.
