Day one updates for consoles aren’t anything new, and it’s kind of expected in some instances since consoles are created and packed long before additional updates are developed. For the XBOX One though, it would seem as if the current version of the firmware that ships with the console will essentially render the console unable to do much of anything, thus requiring users to connect to the internet and download the Day One firmware update.
So, what’s actually affected? Well, the built-in apps and disk based games of course, so in order to use anything on the XBOX One, you will need that shiny new update.
The PS4 is already looking to be the better of the 2 consoles launching in just a few short days, and as a last minute attempt to gain even more popularity, Sony will be including 3 vouchers that players can use once they obtain a launch version of the PS4.
The 1st voucher will give you $10 worth of PlayStation Network credit that can be used for anything in the PlayStation store, while the other 2 will give you 30 day trial subscriptions to PlayStation Plus and Music Unlimited. Currently, this promotion has only been announced for the US and Canada.
So, do you think J.J. Abrams can work his magic on the Star Wars franchise? Well, get ready, because we’ll all see the next installment of Star Wars on December 18, 2015!
