First Xbox One Patch Arrives, MS Reports 2M Consoles Sold
If you’re using the Instant On feature for your Xbox One, the system will reboot the next time you fire it up with the first update for Microsoft’s new console.
As we noted in our Xbox One review, there are plenty of fixes, both big and small, the console needs, so it’s good to see Microsoft get the patch party started. Xbox Live Director of Programing Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb provided the patch notes on his blog:
- Addresses SmartGlass issues for some users when coming in and out of connected standby
- Addresses multiplayer issues for some users when re-joining games
- Addresses issues with inconsistent notifications for some users
- Addresses dashboard performance for some users
- Offers improvements for Xbox One’s TV, system update, and content update services for scaling over time
- Updated wireless networking driver to improve connectivity issues for some users
Hryb notes that if you’re not using the Instant On feature, your system won’t automatically apply the update and you’ll have to download it yourself beginning tomorrow on December 12.
The update comes on the heels of Microsoft revealing it has sold 2 million Xbox One’s in its first 18 days on the market, a stat MS refers to as a “record-setting pace.”
