PostSubject: Xbox One's July Update Infomation   Sat Jun 14, 2014 4:39 am

"Our focus is on you," says Microsoft

Microsoft has released details of Xbox One's next update, which rolls out to previewers "in the next few days". Among other improvements and new features, the console's July OS overhaul introduces Snap support for achievement progress, so you can brood over your Gamerscore without breaking the flow of a game.

"Our focus is on you," notes the NewsWire post in question. "You've shaped Xbox into what it is today, and we can't thank you enough. We look forward to hearing more from you over the coming weeks - now, officially on Xbox Feedback - a dedicated channel for all your thoughts and recommendations. From what we've seen this week, your feedback continues to be amazing. As of today, more than 65,000 fans like you have suggested more than 4,300 ideas and contributed over 181,000 votes."

- Snap Mode for Achievements. As we showed at our E3 Green Carpet event before the show, we're offering an easier way to track and view your achievements in the moment. With Achievement Snap, you can track your achievement progress in real time without ever leaving the game. You can also 'Get Help' on any Achievements you're struggling with. Xbox will scan the web for you and deliver relevant tips and strategy content right to your TV. You can view a video about this feature here.
- Double-tap to Snap. Double-tap the button on you controller to bring up Snap Center, where you can launch Achievements or any other snap-able app, without leaving your game. Already have an app snapped? Double-tap quickly switches between your game and the snapped app.
- Choice of Spoken Language. Folks in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria can now enable voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries. And if you're an expat in an English-speaking country, you, too, can choose any of the other English language models that fit you.
- Future Digital Bundles and Compilation Discs. We're doing some work now so that publishers will have options for great digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. As we test this feature, we'll be seeing more flexible combinations of game titles and game content.
- 'Like' Game DVR clips. We're are adding the ability to 'Like' all your favorite Game DVR clips as well as activity feed items in SmartGlass.

Tbh most of the stuff they're bringing in these updates should of been there from the start. Having the cheevs in snap mode should of been a given surely. At least its all gradually coming over time though. :p

A lot should have but what you've gotta remember is they had to pretty much re make the whole of the OS and how it worked after the kick off with the DRM and always online, so to re code the way these apps now work as well as fixing other bugs and listening to feedback from us as fans and trying to implement them as well I'm just happy they are coming out at all!! Lol. Also the fact we are getting one update a month rather then one every 6months to a year like the 360 days is brilliant news.

For the first time I'm very hopeful for the future of Xbox One. I wasn't very excited about my Xbox One. The month updates are great. Dropping the Kinect from being mandatory is great news for the game developers and in the end for us the fans. I'm gonna use the piss out of that achievement app. No doubt about that. Hope the come up with a way to record clips rather than just talking-to the Kinect.

The games they showed at E3 have me super excited. I've started coming up with creative ways to fund all the games I want. So far I have 3 paid for in full by just making the tiny amount of money I've been able to use work for me. There are a bunch of games I still want to at least rent but I figure I have time to get it all together. The future is looking bright for Xbone One! BTW I think I'm half in love with Phil Spencer. He says its all about us and GAMES. Didn't mention TV or the Kinect once during E3 that I remember. He's speaking my language.
