A mandatory Xbox One system update that addresses dashboard performance, multiplayer issues, TV fixes and SmartGlass integration, is rolling out on Xbox Live for Xbox One users worldwide.
This update works a little bit differently than what fans are used to on Xbox 360. Here’s what you can expect:
A. If you are using the Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), your console automatically checks for updates when you turn it off. Once we make the update available (on Tuesday, December 10th, 5:00 PM PT) this means the following will happen:

Capybara Games announced today that their insane time-traveling run’n gun platformer “Super Time Force” has been delayed and will be coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014.
"To accommodate development of the Xbox One version, and to make sure we bring you the best game possible, we’re moving the release date," the developer announced. "While we had originally intended to release this year, the opportunity to do Super Time Force on Xbox One, plus the sheer insanity of releasing during new console launches meant that moving a few months into 2014 was the best plan for our game."
"We take our time and we aim for the stars, but that often results in the intervals between our games being longer than we (or our beloved fans) may anticipate," they added. "We appreciate the love & support, and see you in 2014!"
Developed by Capybara Games, Super Time Force is an insane action game filled with robots and dinosaurs and fun and time travel! Each member of the Super TIME Force has their own special ability that makes them uniquely useful in battle. The Time Out feature lets you stop time and rewind back through what you just did! Then you can jump back into the action with a new character and play alongside your past self in the past, which is now the present… Whoa. You can use Time Out to partner up with yourself in the good ol’ days of a few seconds ago, creating a veritable army of You(s).

Millions of UK households do not have the broadband speeds needed to cope with their expectations and the excitement around the launch of the latest games consoles, according to independent research commissioned by Virgin Media.
An overwhelming majority of console users are significantly underestimating how long it will take to download games bought online for the powerful new consoles and admit they’ve not considered the impact this will have on their home broadband.
78% of those asked thought that games, which could be as big as 50GB, would be ready to play in under five hours, with just under half (42%) thinking the wait would be less than two hours – vastly underestimating what will take seven and a half hours on an average UK broadband connection.
The study shows that over one in five gamers (21%) are planning on buying the highly anticipated PlayStation 4 at launch or for Christmas. Virgin Media is Sony’s UK ISP partner for the PS4. The two companies have been working to ensure the best entertainment experience and exciting further developments from this partnership will be revealed in the coming weeks and months.
