Xbox One August update live early

By Alan Ng - Jul 28, 2014

As Sony prepares to drop their PS4 1.75 update on gamers this week, we have a feeling that it could be the ideal time for Microsoft to release their highly anticipated Xbox One August 2014 update as well.

It seems that August has now emerged as the battle of the 3D Blu-Ray updates, as Microsoft surprised everyone recently by announcing 3D Blu-Ray support for August, before Sony.

Although Sony has now countered back themselves, we are here to tell you that some lucky users already have the Xbox One August update right now. You may not be aware, but Microsoft has sneakily selected certain users in their usual beta program and now we have confirmation that the Xbox One August update preview is live for those that have been chosen.

It means that those users can try out all of the new August features before everyone else – including 3D Blu-Ray support. In fact, we even have a short clip to show you, giving you a good heads-up on how to enable 3D Blu-Ray support in Xbox One settings.

It also confirms that you’ll have to manually switch on the feature yourself after installation, rather than the feature being automatic once you boot up.

The question is, are you one of Microsoft’s lucky participants who is enjoying the new Xbox One update right now? If so, give us your initial feedback below.

    3d Bluray is not live yet. 3d support is added and will allow the blu ray app to be supported with the coming update. It says so right in the preview dashboard so this article is false.

    Next step is games that support 3D.

    awesome i have just bought a samsung 60 inch 3D LED smart tv and this news is great as it will save me around a £100 now that i don’t have to buy a 3D blue ray player

  • It should be about the games

    Is 3D really still such a popular thing? I had no idea it was still relevant. I hope the September update features ideas that benefit their wider audience.
