Report: Xbox One Dashboard Update, White Console Coming


A major dashboard update is coming to the Xbox One in March.

The Verge is reporting that the Xbox One will see an update to the system that will focus on “fixing a number of issues with the Xbox Live service on the console, alongside other system fixes.” Among those fixes are improving the console’s party chat feature as well as improving the usability of social media features on Xbox Live.

The site also confirmed a rumor from a NeoGAF user that Microsoft is planning to release a white version of the Xbox One later this year. That console will reportedly have a 1TB hard drive according to the user. The user also claimed that Microsoft was mulling over releasing a version of the console that doesn’t include a Blu-ray drive. Those claims are still just rumor as of now, but Gamesided has reached out to Microsoft for an official comment on the matter. We will update you as soon as we get a response.
