Does anyone know if xBox One allows you to turn the console on via SmartGlass? As far as I know you cannot do this with xbox 360.

thanks for letting us know JM :) they have released a new version of smart glass for xbox one, and by the sounds you cannot turn it on just yet, but it looks like they will be adding it in future for you :)

They said they would be implementing updates throughout the life of this product.

Nothing wrong with that. I'd be concerned if they weren't adding updates.

Xbox 360s didn't start with access to Netflix and eventually added that and much more.

I hope they add recording/list/play DVR functionality soon to the OneGuide.

danwat1234 You just need to update if you want to connect to Xbox Live. Would make no sense to allow you to connect without updating as some new features could need the latest firmware.
 


So? Gone are the days of the cartridge with Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis.

High-powered PCs have updates (each piece of hardware practically has its own updates). My Sony TV has updates. My Android phone has updates. My last Blu-ray player had updates. Bluetooth system updates are pushed out to my car. Our iPads, iPhones and iPods constantly have updates through iTunes. iTunes constantly requires updates. Most of these devices won't work properly if the updates aren't performed by a certain date or I'm not given a choice at all to install them. My choice is to use them or not.

What world do you live in where electronic devices don't have updates?

@Dancovich, it's software not firmware :) I agree software related to their online services may need to be updated, similar to online games needing to update to be compatible with the servers and stuff. But you can't choose other updates like what OS updates for the Xbox installs, etc. But maybe you can, I don't own a console. But doubt it.
