Good news is on the horizon for Xbox One users this August. All Xbox One systems will be getting an update that will allow them to playback high-definition content through 3D Blu-ray discs, putting the console one step ahead of the rival Playstation 4 in the never-ending war between Microsoft and Sony.
In addition to the new support for 3D movies, the update which will be available to download towards the end of August will also include a couple of other nifty features, which Microsoft hope will make the entertainment experience better still. These extras include a low battery notification on-screen for your controller to work alongside the existing visual warning on the controller, more possibilities for interaction with your friends from the home page and more importantly the ability to purchase games and DLC from your phone – no matter where you are.
Although there is the ability to purchase games, apps and DLC through the Xbox Live website, in the same way you can with the Xbox 360, the move to the mobile platform fits in with our connected lifestyles and like many of the other update features, it aims to put more selling points on the Xbox One’s already large list versus the Playstation 4.
