Microsoft is not done with the Xbox One. The company is eagerly listening to fan feedback and suggestions, and is looking forward to incorporating the best of the lot to its newly released console.
“If you look back at the Xbox 360’s launch, what it was in 2006 when it launched is completely different from what it is now,” Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb said in an interview with Canada.com. “We didn’t even have things like the party system or the ability to support external storage when we launched the Xbox 360. So we are absolutely committed to adding new features to the Xbox One over the course of its life span.”
Hryb added that the Xbox One team “are gamers themselves,” so it’s only natural for them to improve the console further into something every gamer can enjoy.
“We’re going to continue to refine the system and make it what the Xbox fans are expecting and what they want,” he said. “We’re listening to the feedback every single day. I’ve already seen some changes in the operating system internally with what we’re building.”
As far as the improvements are concerned, Microsoft is also bent on “refining” the Kinect, which in my opinion is already a work of art.
The Xbox One launched last year on November 22 in a total of 13 territories and currently is almost on par with Sony in terms of sales. All the bad press Microsoft received on their decisions earlier this year seemed to have done little damage to the console’s appeal.
