standard New Xbox One experience begins rolling out to all users today


Starting today Microsoft have begun rolling out the new Xbox One experience update to all users globally, if you were already part of the preview program you should have gotten the update already, if not it’ll begin downloading and updating as soon as you power on your Xbox.

The new update paves the way for the universal ecosystem Microsoft are creating, tying in Xbox with the rest of the Windows 10 product line-up; this also means that Cortana is on the way to your console, and it should theoretically also allow future PC/Xbox porting of games. The biggest features of this update include the backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games, allowing users to play over 100 360 games that have been made compatible with the Xbox One.

Regardless of when you receive the New Xbox One Experience system update, the Xbox One Backward Compatibility feature will begin rolling out starting at 3:01pm/12:01 PM (noon) PT on November 12th.  To start playing your Xbox 360 games on Xbox One after this time, refresh your Game Collection to see your pre-purchased, digital Xbox 360 titles from the Backward Compatible title list in your ready to install queue or simply insert the disc for a supported Xbox 360 title and download the game to start playing it on Xbox One.
