Future Xbox One Updates to Be Shaped by Fan Feedback

Microsoft’s Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb has revealed that the company is listening to fan feedback to help deliver the console that fans want with Xbox One.

“If you look back at the Xbox 360′s launch, what it was in 2005 when it launched is completely different from what it is now,” Hryb told Canada.com. “It’s fascinating to see the different things that have come along. Things iterated. So we are absolutely committed to adding new features to the Xbox One over the course of its life span.”

According to Hryb, Microsoft is collecting feedback on the Xbox One daily, and is using this information to shape future updates for the console. “When we look back and look at what we’ve done, we want to continue to adapt the system to what gamers want. The team that works on Xbox are gamers themselves. We want to build the system that we use and that we know gamers would enjoy using,” he said.

“We’re going to continue to refine the system and make it what the Xbox fans are expecting and what they want. 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.”

The latest update for the console tackled issues with multiplayer, SmartGlass, notifications, and dashboard performance. Hyrb has also previously stated that the Xbox One’s party system will be redesigned in the future.
