You simply requested players to undergo the effort of updating their Xbox One gamepads in March, but there’s phrase on NeoGAF that the subsequent patch — at present in testing — will as soon as once more bundle “new controller firmware.” Sure, the (hopefully non-compulsory) code ought to repair connection and headset high quality points which are much more of a ache, nevertheless it’s uncertain that Xbox house owners will relish plugging in peripherals a second time to get reliability that ought to have been current on day one. At the very least customers can take consolation in new system options added to the record of coming updates, together with a button to examine for future software program updates manually and redeeming codes immediately from Xbox Stay messages. Let’s simply hope that gamepad upgrades are much less frequent from right here on out.
