NIS America, a publisher known for bringing Japanese titles such as the Disgaea and Danganronpa games to North America, spoke to MCVUK recently about Japanese exclusives on the Xbox One and the reported lack of support from Microsoft.
The update also adds some features in preparation of the launch of the Xbox One X. It's now quicker and easier to transfer games from one console to another, and you can now do so either through external memory or over the network. You can also now use up to 40 pins to further collect the bits and pieces you want to get to fast.
If you wanted some honest explanation for the absence at large of Japanese releases on Xbox One, the CEO of NIS America is ready to give you one.
The Xbox One Home screen can now be completely customised, enabling you to add favourite games, friends, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass links in new "call blocks". It's pretty neat, as Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb explains in this breakdown of the update. A new light theme also prevents screen ghosting and notifies players when the Xbox is idle. Microsoft has made this menu faster by removing a lot of the automatic loading that was happening with each menu.
A new "Friends in games" flyout also lets you see who's playing the same game as you, while game invites show up in the Multiplayer tab of the Guide. It's a path to getting into more menus, but I'll take it if it means inputs are zippy and responsive. It provides access to Sign-in, Achievements, Parties, Friends, Home, Messages, Broadcasts and a new Action Centre.

The main thing you will notice immediately is the design change to the main dashboard.
There are, of course, other changes to the operating system that should make the upgrade to the Xbox One X easier. Streamers and YouTubers will also be pleased to hear about the updated 4K/HDR screenshot and game clip support, as well as USB webcam support for streaming on Mixer.
So, how do you get access to the latest, and possibly greatest, Xbox software update?
