  1. Microsoft shared the full details of its upcoming Xbox One update in a blog post published last week, revealing a fair amount of new features coming as early as next week. Among them are 3D Blu-ray, activity feed updates, mobile purchases, low battery notification, disabling...

    Interesting how they can just enable 3D BlurRay... I am starting to think that there is more hardware in the Xbox One that is not fully being utilized.

    Techspot has a xbox one fanboy :) Hence why we dont see anything about PS4 updates... seriously this sites starting to look like an Xbox one advert now, nothing about PS4 or their updates just all about Xbox one... atleast give us some PS4 stuff... or does Sony NEVER update the PS4...

    I'm no fanboy and only own a PC but would like to see some stuff about PS4 and a tiny bit about the Wii U...

    Wastedkill, you got to realize that XBOne is just SO bad that they have to release updates more often so that their system won't be THAT bad.
    You got to admit, XBOne went from horrendous to terrible...a great improvement! :)
    By the end of its life-cycle, it may just become acceptable :p

    Because nothing has been changing on the PS4 to notify about or at least much.

    Yea, terrible in the fact it can do more than 2 things which is something the predecessor to the PS4 could actually do but apparently its next gen counterpart can't.

    It has alot of things not enabled just like the PS4, they do this before adding support so they can focus on other attributes before adding in to many features that can cause issues.

    Oh, you own an Xbox One? Please enlighten us as to how horrendous it was and how it is new merely terrible. I, for one, would love to know why I should be feeling as such about my purchase. Clearly, your knowledge is far superior, and perhaps you could be trifled with imparting such lofty insight upon so lowly a pupil.

    Give it a rest man, he's entitled to his opinion. If you don't like the comment, ignore it. If you purchased that thing and you're happy with it, great. I hope you have many enjoyable hours with it.

    There's no need to bash yourself. As an owner of the system the most important thing is for you to enjoy it - and it sounds like you do; who cares what anyone else says.
    Another benefit is that it'll will continue to improve with every update!

    You've restored my faith in people on the Internet. I actually expected you to be a troll, and you aren't. Thank you for being so amiable, and I apologize for my condescension.
    Having said that, I would still like to know what you think is awful about the Xbox One. I'm not really a console gamer (PC master race), so that might be why I don't really see anything glaring (apart from the voice recognition).

    Yeah they put an update out that allows you to dim that light on the back of the controllers... That's big news... right? :p I mean the battery now lasts a little longer and all.

    But in all seriousness I don't think much has been added to the PS4 so there is nothing to report. To be fair it was never marketed to, as the Xbox was (when first announced) primarily marketed as a media machine.
    Hey lets not get hasty now ;) I managed to have a party chat going, Destiny Beta and used the web browser to google stuff all at the same time. But you're right, It's the reason I still have my PS3 around, it can actually do more things, I believe the head honcho at Sony was interviewed once and asked why the PS4 was missing things like DLNA compatibility and his exact words were "I don't know, all I know is I want them back as much as you do and I ask my software team every 2 weeks how they are getting along with it".

    It'll be the same for PS4 as well, Although it's a little more confusing as to why they didn't have it in the first place considering the PS3 did and they co-invented "The BluRay" as we know it today.
