Microsoft has released a new build for its Xbox One System Software Update. And Preview Program members will be able to access the new version, rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160824-1140.
This new update will bring Cortana to more areas, like Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Just activate Cortana in via the Settings options and you are ready to go.
The Xbox One System Software update will also contain two new fixes. The bug that causes game trials to be available for more or less of the intended amount of time has been fixed and there will no longer be issues that cause system updates to fail while being applied…..or so they say 🙂
Those not in the Preview Program can still look forward to a new update, this time to the list of backward compatible games. Following quickly in the wake of “Call of Duty 2.” Xbox One players will once again get another Xbox 360 game playable on their Xbox One.
Major Nelson announced via his Twitter that “Joust,” a classic 1982 arcade game can be playable on the newer Xbox console for those who have a copy of the original game.
Frankly I hate the new Call of Duty (I’m rubbish at it). I want to run and shoot and dive in the dirt, not run up walls 🙂 Back to Call of Duty 2 I go….if I can find the damn disc.
