Today Microsoft has started to roll out another system update for the Xbox One. But new update is unlike the last two updates in the past, this one doesn’t add many major new features, but it does tweak some that are already there.

For a start the new update, adds 50Hz playback capabilities to the Blu-ray application, and also improvements to voice and motion controls on Kinect.

Xbox One update

The Kinect update adds some fine tuning, which includes some of the gesture functionality to reduce false positives on non-hand objects triggering gesture commands.

Video quality for Game DVR recordings has been improved. And there is now a game save progress bar to give you an idea of how long it’s taking. You can also now tell what apps and games are being updated or have been recently.

Notifications to tell you when your friends and favourites sign in to Xbox Live have been added. While firmware for the controller and headset adaptor has been updated to reduce audio static and wireless connectivity.

Here’s the final breakdown of the features rolling out to Xbox One systems starting today and over the next few days:

  • Game and app saves and updates. A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
  • Friends improvements. Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This was one of the most frequently requested features, so we made it a priority to include it in this update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list.
  • Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to be fine-tuned for quality and reliability of Xbox One commands. For example, we’ve updated some of the gesture functionality to reduce false positives on non-hand objects triggering gesture commands.
  • Improved GameDVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
  • Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
  • Controller and headset adapter firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
  • Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. If your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings and you’ll be able to use it next update. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.

Today Mircosoft have announced that the first proper update coming to the Xbox One next Tuesday the 11th February.  This update will features many new improvements, including lots of behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for Xbox One, several new features that Xbox One fans will love, stability and product updates to improve the customer experience, and continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice so commands become more fluid and responsive over time.

Some of the features you can expect to see on February 11 include:

  • The ability to see and manage your storage space. With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. You can also control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue. We’ve separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so you can easily create separate queues for both. Now you can pick the order in which you want your content to load and we’ve added a boot progress indicator so you can better track updates while they load.
  • The battery power indicator is back! You can see it right on the home screen, so you can easily track how much battery life is left on your controller.
  • And, you will be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.

But this update next Tuesday isn’t the last one with a second update coming on the 4th March to get ready for Titanfall. This update will contain  many new features and improvements, most significantly to Xbox One party and multiplayer systems.

The Wii U has received a system update. Announced last week, the update is the first of two planned updates to make the system load menus and software faster.



It adds the ability to download game and system updates in the background, and will also automatically download and install updates in a new standby mode.

Elsewhere, users will be able to transfer data between USB devices; holding B on the system start-up will boot the console straight to Wii mode; and the Internet Browser offers more control options.

Finally, Virtual Console and Panorama View software will be introduced to the eShop tomorrow (27th April).

This week Nintendo released the beta version of the Miiverse for PC and mobile browsers.
Nintendo recently announced that it missed its fiscal forecast due to poor Wii U sales.
The firm is also planning to scrap this year’s E3 press conference in favour of smaller, behind-closed-doors events.
The Wii U system update notes in full:
Addition of Standby Functions Feature

  • This feature enables data for purchased software, system updates and software updates to be downloaded and installed automatically even after the console has been turned off.

Updates to Miiverse

  • Controls using the Wii Remote, the Wii U Pro Controller and the Classic Controller are now supported.
  • The input screen for handwritten posts is now also displayed on the TV.
  • The input screen for handwritten posts now features an undo/redo button.

Updates to the Internet Browser

  • Controls using the Wii Remote and the Wii U Pro Controller are now supported.
  • It is now possible to switch search engines when performing a keyword search.
  • It is now possible to navigate to the start page from bookmarks.

Update to Nintendo eShop

  • When purchasing downloadable software, any available updates for that software will be downloaded at the same time.

Updates to Download Management

  • It is now possible to reorder downloads.
  • Newly purchased downloadable software will automatically install once the download completes.

Updates to Parental Controls

  • The “Viewing Distributed Videos” restriction has been changed to “Entertainment Excluding Games”. A screen requiring parental consent will be displayed before the first use of any non-game software (including video-viewing software) or other new service.

Enabled Direct Opening of Wii Menu

  • When the Wii U logo is displayed after turning on the console, holding down the B Button on the Wii U GamePad will open the Wii Menu directly. (If no default user has been selected on the console, the user-selection screen will be displayed, and a user must be selected.)

Updates to System Settings

  • Under Data Management, two USB storage devices can now be connected to move and/or copy data. You can move and/or copy data between the system memory and a USB storage device or between two USB storage devices. (Up to two USB storage devices can be connected when moving, copying or deleting data. In all other cases, only one USB storage device can be used at a time.)
  • Under Data Management, you can now move, copy or delete data for a selection of software titles.
  • The TV option now includes the option to adjust the screen size of the display on the TV. (This replaces the similar options previously available within Miiverse, Nintendo eShop, and the Internet Browser, which have now been removed.)
  • The “Auto Power-Down” option has been renamed to “Power Settings”, which now includes both the auto power-down setting and the new standby functions feature.

Improvements to System Stability and Convenience

  • Improvements have been made to system stability and convenience for greater user enjoyment.
  • The time required to start the Wii U console, launch built-in applications, exit software and return to the main menu, jump between applications and jump between software and Miiverse has been reduced.

Today Nintendo announced that the Wii U will receive a system update next week, introducing new eShop items and console features. As well as previously confirmed faster load times, future game and system updates will download in the background while playing, and will be automatically downloaded and installed in a new standby mode.

Virtual Console will debut a day after the update, with Super Metroid, Excitebike, Picross, Ice Climber and Super Mario World launching soon after the service launches.

Panarama View will also launch on eShop the day following the update with four tours; Double Decker Tour, Rickshaw around Kyoto, Birds in Flight and Carnival! for £1.79 each.

While the specific date for the update has yet to be revealed, eShop updates occur on a Thursday, suggesting a date of Wednesday, April 24.
