Quick Review On The Microsoft Xbox One
The Microsoft Xbox One debuted in 2013. Initially, Microsoft stated that the Xbox One would require a stable internet connection for both single and multiple players. The company falls back on that news ahead of the official release date, cobbling together all the pieces of code to assure that games played at its launch. Still then, the Xbox One came with a sizable day-one patch.
Thanks to last year’s Windows 10 update, the UI of the Microsoft Xbox One becomes faster and easier to use. The update on Windows 10 makes the console more responsive as well as easier to use and navigate. Aside from that, one of its upsides is that most of backward-compatible Xbox 360 games run well on Xbox One. As reported, its main downside is that it is still missing features from the Microsoft Xbox 360 such as the system-wide game defaults.
