Xbox One Got A Small Update Today To ‘Prepare for the Future’

How cryptic.

The Xbox One has a fairly regular schedule for its updates, with everything first going through to the members of the Preview Program, and major feature additions or removals being well and transparently communicated to players beforehand. However, today, out of the blue, players who booted up their systems found a small, mysterious update for their console. There were no patch notes accompanying it, so players had no way to know what the update entailed.

Well apparently, it does nothing. Nothing on the surface, anyway. It seems to tweak something behind the scenes, something that ‘prepares [the system] for the future,’ according to Major Nelson.

As to exactly what this preparation for the future might be is anybody’s guess. It could be anything from an overhaul of how the Xbox One works offline (so features such as achievements, profiles, and pins are available offline too, and cock ups such as the recent Witcher 3 digital licenses debacle don’t get repeated), or it could be something related to Windows 10.

It looks like we will just have to wait and see for now.

      Much better than 1080p/20fps like The Witcher 3 haha.Ponies will never learn.

  • Psionicinversion

    Well PCs eligible for the win 10 free upgrade have gotten notification in the task bar to reserve a key for it and to auto download on release. So might be something to prep the system to update it to win 10

  • XbotMK1

    Probably preparing to bring back their DRM. After all, Phil Spencer did say they were going to bring it back.

    • Psionicinversion

      sony has no DRM them?? yeah the only digital platform with no drm is GOG so try harder.

      Andrew House said on stage digital is the future…. not with sonys current policies it isnt.

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      For our protection, so will be strongly supported.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Sony wants to bring in DRM too according to their last investor conference

      Ironic the only DRM free platform will be PC, John Derp.

      No games, DRM and 720P VR. Amazing lineup for Sony’s E3 there :^)

  • TheMeatwad

    I hope it’s something really cool, but I’m guessing it is a headset volume mixer to replace the physical buttons on the headset adaptor.

  • You Are Flat Out Wrong

    It has none. Just like the paperweight station 4.

  • Mars_x

    Sign up now and prepare for the future. Fallout 4?
