    Xbox One update arriving in March, white console later this year The Verge

    Microsoft is preparing to release its first major Xbox One dashboard update in March. Sources familiar with the plans have revealed to The Verge that the update will focus on fixing a number of issues with the Xbox Live service on the console, alongside other system fixes.
    The anonymous forum poster also claims Microsoft will release a white version of its Xbox One console in October alongside the launch of Sunset Overdrive. A 1TB version of the Xbox One is rumored for release a month later in November. The Verge can confirm Microsoft is indeed planning to release its white employee-only Xbox One this year. Other rumors shared by the anonymous forum poster include the possibility of an Xbox One without a Blu-ray drive, a Bluetooth adapter, and launch dates for the console worldwide. While it's unclear if a disc-less Xbox One will make it to market, The Verge can also confirm Microsoft has been testing versions of its console without a Blu-ray drive.
    ^ The Xbox One should have come with a 1TB HDD (or SSHD) in the first place.

    They have also tweaked the scaling engine, assassins creed looks a lot better now.

    Can make Forza look a bit junk in some places though but it is way better at signing in with Kinect for me now. Titanfall beta is also free and some good fun now, well once you yet again set the region to the US as they can't be stuffed releasing it for us.

    Great deal, especially with titanfall...but what about the console on its own, at that price they're valuing it already at 350.

    The xboxone was the 74th best selling video game item in February on Amazon.co.uk and its widely available in stores. MS has press the panic button. Is a 30 drop enough?

    Now the price war between the 2 may hot up and I'll be happy with another 50 off!

    Factor in they are giving away a 505 game with it, the reality is that it's an 85 drop

    Well a price cut and Sony's high demand: PS4 stock shortages could last until April, Sony suggests - News - Trusted Reviews, may just help MS out.

    The Titanfall bundle is a stock limited offer I believe.

    Most early adopters in the UK got a game with the system rather Forza or Fifa with it. So no.

    You got fifa for paying 20 on top, and Forza/Dead Rising/Ryse for paying 50 on top.

    The "day1 edition" was 429 inc Forza (pre-orders and the leftovers). Shopto was selling the xboxone for 429 inc Fifa, in fact all of Europe got this deal.
