Xbox One to get day one update

Written by David Stellmack

Should only take about 15 to 20 minutes

Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One will be getting a day one update. Actually the news comes as little surprise since Microsoft has admitted that they continue to tweak the software and optimize the system.

The update is said to not only optimize the system to get the most performance out of the system, but it also apparently will contain new firmware that is necessary to reverse Microsoft’s original decision to place restrictions that required online validation to enable the use of pre-owned software. This firmware apparently removes all of these restrictions.

While the size of the update isn’t known, Microsoft claims that it will take the majority of uses 15 to 20 minutes to download, but it isn’t clear how long it will take to install once it is downloaded. It also isn’t yet known when Microsoft will switch over to the new firmware and OS tweaks so that the day one download will not be necessary.
