ThatNaijaBlog - The first substantial system update for the Xbox One releases on Tuesday, February 11th and Microsoft has dropped a few details of what to expect.
Good...fix the goddamn party chat already.
Kind of ironic that the XBox One is getting an update to do some of the things the PS4 already does. LOL.
And PS4 will copy features of X1 no doubt, like PS3 copied many 360 features.... Your ironic point is??
...that it also is getting updates to do the things 360 did. It isn't about copying, just about odd downgrades indicating a rushed OS. Not to say PS4 doesn't have its own odd downgrades, such as no MP3 or DLNA at launch, but for a company that takes so much pride in its online infrastructure, it is a bit odd of them to strip such essential community features from an online system that already had them in place for many years. It's also odd to see them remove features like storage management, which are pretty important in order to ensure ease of use and have been in place since the original Xbox. It did beg the question "It wasn't broken, why fix/remove it?".
Fair enough Frosty, also the way a comment dhould be done, not a blatant fanboy poke like above. Bubble up for you...
My point was moot. Just making a statement. That the PS4 had system storage management and keyboard support from day one. I was just surprised to see the XBox One was lacking these capabilities. These are pretty basic, fundamental things. There is nothing the PS4 would copy from the XBox One, at this point. If anything, Sony would port over all the media features and personalization options from the PS3 over to PS4....before resorting to copying the competition.
Ok, X1 not perfect, I know, but Sony already copied the best things about Xbox Live, and glad Xbox copying the free games, could be better though, but in fairness PSN was slow on that one too to begin with. Nothing wrong with copying, its a form of flattery.
if you want the customers, you need to provide what the rival company is doing + more, why the hell wouldn't they copy each other! keeps both companies on top of their game and trying to outdo the other
I was kinda looking for more in the PS4 update. Hope this one for the xbone is more substantial.
That's great. Now we can enjoy a lot more.
Surely, it's really nice to see what more the Xbox One can do..
So my ps4 cause a bill that had to be paid, bought a xb1 yesterday and do not regret it. Never thought I'd be happy with it but I am..
That's exactly why you can't forget nintendo even those I'm heavily invested in Sony at the moment (ps3/4/vita) and even and Xbox 360 they just copy each other all the time and they even just copy nintnedo when they are on to a winner ie the wii hence we saw Kinnet and Move, wii u but not be the next new revolutionary thing but still highly enjoyable and without nintendo we couldn't have controllers today like we know them, they'd be awful long live Nintendo! All these first few updates are gonna be minor things that should have been there for launch, I'll he interested when the major updates start happening after the summer ;)
Having just read the minimal list of updates it's a shame to see it's purely things that should have been available for launch what with the xbox 360 being able to do all of that for that 4/5 years! Granted the ps4 updates weren't much better but the fact it was originally cheaper and ik getting 2 free games a month until the console kicks off for good I.e spending nothing further can't complain with the ps4 as always Microsoft have rush released it how hard would have been to show how much storage you had from launch and the amount of charge left on the battery pack, that's pretty poor, keyboard support fair enough sure everyone won't use one on Xbox (I do surprisingly haha) but all that other stuff is pathetic and should have been there 3 months ago if not a week or 2 later.
