Console launches rarely go off without a hitch, and it looks like the Xbox One will be no exception. In an interview with Engadget, Microsoft admitted that the Xbox One would be effectively useless without a patch coming on day one.
Senior Director Albert Penello, when asked what gamers could do with the new console out of the box said, "Nothing. You need the Day One update." Adding, "You're gonna need to take this update. It's not gonna be really an optional thing."
Current consoles are being manufactured with an outdated version of the operating system, and it highlights what we've known for some time now -- that even though these brand new consoles are already a couple of years behind modern PCs, this generation is being rushed to market.
