Chief product officer Marc Whitten says Microsoft is listening to consumers.
The Xbox One has sold 3 million units since its launch in November according to Microsoft, and the console is only going to get better. Chief product officer Marc Whitten spoke to Engadget about how the interface and issues with Xbox Live would be addressed in upcoming system updates.
“The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid. Ssome of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things. As a person who’s been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it’s harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren’t right, and I don’t like the model.
“So what I’m trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let’s take an update and really go through a big list of what we’re hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that’s a theme you’ll really see us push on — that Live experience.”
